Corpus Christi Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources
Located along the Gulf of Mexico in southern Texas, Corpus Christi is a mid-sized city with plenty of beaches, boating and entertainment. The area’s low cost of living and sunny weather draw families and retirees to the area, where they enjoy the city’s bustling local art scene, maritime museums and outdoor activities. It is also home to major petroleum companies, a satellite campus of Texas A&M University and a naval air station, which balances the population and provides jobs.
Like larger cities in Texas, Corpus Christi faces a drug problem that affects people of all ages and socioeconomic statuses. It is the first metropolitan area in east Texas north of the Mexican border, making it a natural transshipment area for drugs entering the country via the highway or the port before they make their way to other parts of the country. As a result, the supply of cocaine and heroin from Mexico remains high in the area, and DEA officials report an increase in the amount of powdered cocaine available on the street as well as an increase in the number of young people experimenting with heroin.
For many of these people, the stigma of drug addiction keeps them from seeking out the help they need to overcome their problems. If you’re one of the thousands of people in the Corpus Christi area struggling with a substance use disorder, there is hope at various Corpus Christi drug treatment facilities and Corpus Christi alcohol treatment facilities.

In a residential treatment program, you stay at the facility full-time as you work with a team of professionals who meet you in therapy sessions, lead group discussions and teach classes. Using a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, these programs offer you a safe place where you can avoid drugs and alcohol while you learn about the behaviors and attitudes that lead to your dependence along with practical skills you can use to change those patterns.

If you choose this option, you attend therapy sessions and classes during the day and return home at night. Some patients switch to a partial hospitalization program as they progress through their treatment program and begin the transition back to regular life.
Outpatient Treatment Programs
Outpatient programs provide patients the ability to schedule their therapy sessions and classes around their own schedules. This option offers the greatest flexibility, so you can still go to work or take care of your family while you seek treatment. In some cases, this is the final step in a comprehensive treatment program and reserved for individuals who have the necessary resources and skills to live a sober life.
Successful recovery depends on finding the right treatment program for your situation. As you look at different facilities, carefully consider what they have to offer and spend time talking to the staff. Find a place that makes you feel comfortable, which might be a Corpus Christi drug rehab center or a Corpus Christi alcohol rehab center.
