    Residential Treatment Programs

    A variety of residential treatment centers across the state give patients 24-hour access to a variety of medical professionals that provide care while the patient lives at the facility.

When pursuing drug rehab in Lubbock, TX or alcohol rehab in Lubbock, TX using one of the above programs, patients should keep in mind their unique set of circumstances, including the seriousness of their substance misuse and whether they warrant more rigorous treatment options in order to improve their chances of recovery.

Detox Centers
