Drug and alcohol treatment center in Corpus Christi

According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, almost 20 million Americans 12 years old and older are battling a substance abuse problem. About 74 percent of them have an alcohol use disorder, while 38 percent have an illicit drug use disorder.

If you are one of those 20 million people, the road to sobriety can seem difficult. But the substance abuse specialists at Corpus Christi Medical Center Bayview understand what patients need to become sober and work to give them the right tools to get there and remain free of drugs and alcohol.

If you or someone you know has a substance abuse problem, seek help by scheduling an appointment with a specialist.


Corpus Christi Medical Center Bayview has been recognized by The Joint Commission for its behavioral health program, including the quality of care, treatment, and services given.

Our substance abuse treatment programs

For people who need treatment for addiction, our substance abuse programs are available in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Inpatient substance abuse services

The inpatient substance abuse treatment program at Bayview offers intensive therapy for adult patients struggling with alcohol or drug abuse and need 24-hour care. The program provides treatment for:

  • Patients with drug or alcohol addiction
  • Dual diagnosis patients (substance abuse due to a behavioral health condition)
  • Patients in recovery who need continuing support

Many patients seek treatment for substance abuse but relapse quickly and may need multiple drug or alcohol rehab attempts. At Bayview, we understand what our patients need and give them the right tools to stay sober.

Outpatient substance abuse services

Our outpatient substance abuse treatment program treats patients who are struggling with alcohol or drug abuse but don't need hospitalization. We also serve people who are in recovery and provide meetings and programs for continuing support.

Relapse is a constant threat when treating people with substance abuse problems. Some patients try treatment once, then relapse and never try it again. Others need multiple attempts at drug or alcohol rehab.

Dual diagnosis program

Many people who abuse drugs or alcohol also have mental health conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder and attention deficit disorder. This dual diagnosis means that both conditions should be treated for the patient to recover fully.

Treating one condition but not the other increases the likelihood a person will relapse. Knowing about both diagnoses means we can treat both and give the patient the tools to succeed. It also teaches patients that drugs or alcohol may not be their only problem.

At Bayview, we work to understand everything contributing to a patient’s disease. Our treatment starts with psychiatric and medical assessments. While addressing the mental health condition with therapy or sometimes medications, we can then attend to their substance abuse problems. This includes education for the patient, family, group and individual therapy and support and plans for after discharge.
