Briarwood Detox Philosophy

Our mission is to provide clients with the best substance abuse detoxification therapies available.
Nearly 70 percent of people entering addiction treatment have a mental issue and often it's previously undiagnosed. Our goal is to stabilize each client so they are both physically and mentally prepared to participate in the next stage of recovery.

Our substance abuse detox is based on proven addiction treatment methods, including strategies and principles that encourage quality of life. All detox treatment plans are highly individualized based on the specific needs and circumstances of each client.

Our detox facility offers luxury accommodations, chef-prepared meals at any time and a quiet, tranquil location for clients to rest.

Our addiction treatment professionals, counselors, and coordinators have the experience and expertise to help encourage trust and instill the values associated with the addiction recovery process for every client.

Areas of Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

  • Detox
    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Review by Contributors


In August 2016, Briarwood Detox opened its doors to individuals struggling with addiction. Located in Austin, Texas, the center provides inpatient detox and stabilization services for adults. According to its website, the center treats addictions to most substances, including alcohol, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and prescription drugs.


According to the center’s website, all clients first undergo a comprehensive assessment, which includes a physical exam and drug screening. Following this assessment, clients are given an estimate for how long they can expect to remain in treatment. Length of stay varies, but most individuals remain on-site for between three and 14 days.

During their stay, clients are prescribed medications to help ease the symptoms of withdrawal. Individual and group counseling are used alongside medication management, and a case manager is assigned to each client to provide individualized guidance and support for involved family members. Once their detox is complete, clients often move on to another residential or outpatient treatment facility.


According to its website, the center employs a 24-hour staff that includes addiction treatment professionals, counselors, coordinators, and case managers.


According to a local news report, the treatment facility is located on one acre of land and houses up to 15 individuals at a time. Trees and landscaped lawns surround the recently renovated residence, which includes a shaded patio. As many as three clients share one of the center’s bedrooms, all of which are minimally furnished and decorated with vibrant linens and artwork. Clients are provided with meals prepared by an on-site chef.

REVIEWS has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff. Briarwood Detox maintains an active Facebook page, but it does not currently include any reviews.


According to its website, Briarwood Detox works with many private insurance companies, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna.
