HOUSTON, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gallus Detox Centers, established in March of 2011 in Prescott, Arizona, is proud to announce the opening of its first facility in Texas. "The new center in Sugar Land continues our goal of small, medical drug and alcohol detox facilities offering unparalleled patient care, excellent service and upscale amenities like private rooms and gourmet meals. We've seen a lot of interest for safe detox treatment in the Houston area and are excited to begin accepting patients on October 1," says Dave Long, Business Director.
Most detox treatment is provided in facilities that focus on rehabilitation and offer only "cold-turkey" or holistic methods for this critical phase. Gallus Detox is among the few nationwide providing medically managed treatment monitored 24/7 by a medical team. The Gallus Detox Method is dedicated to patient safety and alleviating uncomfortable and potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. This unique method was developed by Dr. Patrick Gallus, a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician and Chief of Staff of Yavapai Regional Medical Center in Prescott. "At our detox centers, customized treatment plans are designed based on each patient's needs, emotions, substances of abuse, and outside concerns. Then treatment is implemented by our board certified physicians, registered nurses and mental health professionals," Dr. Gallus says. "The typical length of stay for a patient is 4.5 days and, unlike some facilities, we don't want our patients cut off from the world during their stay. We provide HDTV and Wifi, and we encourage patients to stay in touch with their families and friends for additional support. "
The Gallus Detox treatment program is based on many factors that change constantly during treatment. Through the use of intravenous medication, cardiac monitoring and 24-hour video monitoring, our medical team is able to adapt to the patient's specific needs on a moment's notice to ensure their safety and comfort. Our ability to respond quickly throughout treatment is a decided advantage over slow-acting oral medications used in some facilities. Detoxing from alcohol or drug abuse safely and comfortably is essential to a patient's positive outcome and attitude toward the future. At Gallus Detox Centers, we always assist our patients with planning for after-care and the next step on their road to recovery.
Dr. Patrick Gallus is available to all media outlets for interviews or questions.
