Overdose Emergency Care in Dallas, TX
Treatments & Transfers to Local Rehab Centers
Advance ER offers emergency care for people suffering from an overdose. Our two Dallas emergency medical care centers in Dallas have no wait time, so you can come to Advance ER the moment that you need help. With our variety of options for treatments and procedures, as well as our experienced medical staff and high-quality medical equipment, we can provide emergency medical care to people who are suffering overdoses from opioids, fentanyl, prescription drugs, alcohol, and other unsafe substances.
Once we stabilize the person who is suffering an overdose, we can talk to them or their loved ones about where they want to complete an addiction rehab program. There are many qualified and respected rehab centers in the greater Dallas metropolitan area that can help prevent relapse and another dangerous overdose. If you aren’t sure where to go for help, then please let us know, and we can share some of our insight and make a recommendation. When a rehab center is chosen, we can transport the overdose patient to that facility for continued care.
If someone might be suffering an overdose, call 911 or come to Advance ER immediately. If you need information about our overdose treatments but it is not an emergency, you can dial (214) 494-8222.
Seek Immediate Help at the First Sign of an Overdose
Overdose symptoms can vary but often include:
- Respiratory failure
- Heart attack
- Weak pulse
If an overdose is not treated as soon as possible, it can be fatal. Also, the sooner an overdose is reversed, which may be possible if the overdose is triggered by certain substances, the less likely it becomes that the patient will suffer long-term consequences. Please call 911 or come to Advance ER immediately if someone is or might be suffering from an overdose.
Stabilization & Recovery at Advance ER
Our emergency medical care professionals at Advance ER can stabilize overdose symptoms after diagnosing the cause of the overdose. Once stabilized, we can continue monitoring the patient, so we ensure that they can make a full recovery. We staff both of our Dallas ERs 24/7, so there will always be medical professionals on hand to attend to every medical need of an overdose patient.
Stress-Free Transfers to Rehab Facilities
Once an overdose patient is stabilized and recovering their health at Advance ER, the next step is usually to find a local addiction rehab center that can admit them the same or the next day. Rehab centers can help people who suffered an alcohol overdose or drug overdose, depending on the center and its facilities. When the patient is ready to transfer to the rehab facility for further care, Advance ER can offer transportation to rehab for their convenience.
