Since 1967, Austin Recovery has provided effective and compassionate residential addiction treatment for individuals, families and communities. Our transformational treatment model brings about in-depth cognitive, behavioral and spiritual changes essential for overcoming addiction – giving our clients a new freedom and a life full of promise in recovery—and making us one of the best choices for alcohol and drug abuse treatment, whether in Texas or across the U.S.
To better serve Central Texas, Austin Recovery has merged with The Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston, the largest non-profit provider of outpatient addiction treatment services in the state. The Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston, founded in 1946, is committed to keeping our community healthy, productive and safe by providing services and information to all who may be adversely affected by alcohol and drugs, impacting over 365,000 annually. The partnership between these two drug and alcohol rehab centers will bring an enhanced continuum of recovery services, while fulfilling both organizations’ common mission of offering affordable alcohol and drug abuse treatment at the highest standards.
Over the years, research has taught us much about the illness of addiction and how it best responds to treatment. Many of these evidence-based practices are fully incorporated into our treatment approach. We have also incorporated the principles and 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as originally practiced in the early days of the Fellowship where members achieved very high recovery rates. Treatment at Austin Recovery also includes hours of individual and small group counseling each week with masters-level clinicians and licensed chemical dependency counselors. Finally, we have added a unique group of experience-based therapies specifically designed to help you feel and experience the changes as they occur. These four components together form what we call “The Austin Recovery Way,” and make us one of the best choices for inpatient rehab in Texas or across the nation.
Our mission is to extend the hand of recovery to all those seeking alcohol and drug abuse treatment. Through the support of the community and generous gifts from our sustainers, we are committed to offering the highest quality inpatient rehab and other services at our recovery center, for some of the best prices in the country, and we accept many forms of insurance. Additionally, we provide residential addiction treatment for those without resources through funding from the State of Texas, local cities and counties and generous community groups and gifts.
To help you or your family member gain and maintain sobriety from drug addiction or to stop drinking, we offer a number of programs including detox and separate Short-Term and Journey programs for men and women. Our Family House helps moms seeking recovery by allowing them to bring two children under the age of six with them to treatment at our inpatient rehab Texas facility. We also offer free alcohol and drug intervention programs, outpatient services, alumni support, family programs, aftercare and community education. Our staff of 135 nurses, licensed chemical dependency counselors, counselor interns and direct care staff focus on approximately 2,400 clients from around the nation and their families each year.
