ABOUT MEDMARK TREATMENT CENTERS - TEJAS RECOVERY AND COUNSELING SERVICES

MedMark Treatment Centers provides substance abuse treatment throughout six states. One of two MedMark locations in San Antonio, Tejas Recovery and Counseling Services offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) on an outpatient basis for adults struggling with opioid addiction.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To be eligible for treatment at Tejas Recovery and Counseling Services, prospective clients must be 18 or older, have opioids as their primary drug of choice, and be addicted for at least 12 months.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the first part of a four-part treatment method. The facility first helps clients in their recovery by minimizing the impact of withdrawal symptoms. Available medications include methadone and buprenorphine, making it one of the 113 Texas facilities to utilize buprenorphine

Clients also work with qualified addiction counselors to address the underlying factors that contribute to their addiction. Counseling services often focus on developing coping skills as well as uncovering unknown influences to prepare clients to address them. Counseling sessions also aim to teach clients about sober living and continued treatment options so that they can self-manage their recovery.

In treatment, clients continue to work with case managers to coordinate needed treatment services. Case managers can help clients with continuing care planning as well. The case managers can help clients deal with stressful situations including pregnancy and finding services for young women. They can also provide referrals to other facilities if needed.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The CARF-accredited center is directed by a licensed chemical dependency counselor (LCDC) and employs a team of physicians experienced in addiction medicine, counselors, case managers, and support staff.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

While Rehabs.com has yet to receive alumni feedback to date, secondary sources revealed overall positive alumni opinions. On Google, MedMark Treatment Centers San Antonio earned an average of four out of five stars from 30 reviews.[1]

Alumni generally indicated their satisfaction with treatment services, especially counseling. While a few alumni wrote about “rude” staff members and “extremely strict” dosing times, most of the alumni disagreed, praising the staff. "Ive been attending this clinic for a year now. The staff is amazing," Gregory wrote in a representative review.

WHAT STAFF SAY

At the time of this writing, Rehabs.com has received one staff review about Tejas Recovery and Counseling Services. She gave five out of five stars for the facility’s privacy policies, training, and loyalty to patients and staff. However, she only gave two out of five stars when polled if the salary offered was fair and how the facility dealt with care concerns. "A very loving environment for both the staff and clients," they wrote, but did feel that some counselors could be ill-prepared on occasion.

FINANCING

All MedMark Treatment Centers are part of the 62% of U.S. facilities that accept Medicaid, and this facility is part of the 37.3% of facilities in Texas that accept state-affiliated health plans. It also accepts private insurance plans as an out-of-network provider for BlueCross BlueShield and Humana.

CONCLUSION

In Texas, MedMark is working with local news stations to show the community the effect opioids are having on communities. In a news article by Kurtis Quillin, leaders at MedMark revealed that the facility can run at full capacity with just the number of opioid treatments needed. To resolve this, MedMark continues to partner with local facilities to promote prevention and ensure accessible treatment.

The love of the staff for the clients and recovery!! the loyalty to the unit .. the ability to remain equal and not above the clients .. the self-esteem building and education of the disease and other outside referral system in place, were all strengths. A downfall was that not all counselors were prepared prior to group .. so it would become counselor in a can technique..in other words they used videos when unprepared a very loving environment for both the staff and clients .. staff have built a strong support system for each other there also .. loved that
