Texas Star strives to prescribe only the necessary medication for its patients. Ideally, a person will leave taking less medication than when they enter the program.
Consultation with physicians and counselors, education and individualized discharge plans provide pro-active management of a patient’s medications. Medication dosage may be altered or medicine may be discontinued in lieu of a more effective, non-addictive alternative.
By following the recommendations of the physician and gaining a better understanding of the risks associated with certain medications, successful recovery is possible.
