Reclaim your sense of self with our Co-Occurring and Substance Abuse Disorder Program

Dealing with substance abuse is never easy. It’s even more difficult when you’re also experiencing mental health issues. Living with any or all of those struggles is overwhelming, but we’re here to help you overcome them.

A Path to Recovery

At SUN, we help people living with addiction understand their triggers and develop the coping skills to overcome them. Because treatment happens close to home right here in Houston, you can face and work through your everyday, real-life stressors that set off your addictions. Following a carefully personalized plan unique to your needs, you’ll undergo in-patient detox and rehabilitation, transition to partial hospitalization, and then continue care in intensive outpatient treatment. You’ll benefit from a full spectrum of care that leaves you stronger than your disease and on a clear path to recovery.

Your Journey of Care

As our patient, you’ll realize overcoming addiction isn’t fixed in a day. Sobriety is a journey you begin at SUN.

We’ll help you through detox and work together to uncover the causes of your addiction, understand your triggers and develop coping skills to overcome them. Detox typically takes 4-5 days. Acute Rehabilitation duration depends on your needs.
Begin your return to daily life where you’ll experience stressors that previously triggered your addiction. We’ll help you further develop coping skills to manage them. Duration is 2-4 weeks.
Transition to outpatient treatment with the confidence that you are stronger than your disease. Through continued treatment and counseling, we’ll guide you through your new normal and help you build a support system to keep you on a path to recovery.
The journey to recovery can take many paths, and at SUN, we know that one treatment plan doesn’t fit all. We offer a range of abstinence-based programs to medication-assisted programs to ensure that you have the very best opportunity for success.
