Addiction Treatment Programs in Austin, TX

Our programs help individuals in need of recovery from addiction. We offer a variety of programs at differing levels of care. That way, our treatment center can meet each client where they are in their recovery.

The following are the types of programs that we offer:

Detox Programs

A detoxification program, or detox, is the first step necessary when trying to overcome addiction. The purpose is to safely remove the substances from the system while being medically and psychologically monitored. Thus, should any complications arise, they can be addressed and treated correctly. 

During detox, individuals will receive 24-hour-a-day monitoring. Being medically monitored helps to ensure that an individual safely comes off of whatever substances they use. The methods by which this process is done will vary based on the substance and the amounts being used. Undergoing detox helps to ensure the safety of the individual. This offers the best possible start to a life in recovery from addiction to harmful substances. 

It is crucial to note here that detox is not the end of all addiction. It is vital to receive proper continuing care to maintain a life of recovery. After detox, clients in our Austin treatment center are encouraged to continue with a comprehensive treatment program. This can include therapy, group support, and behavioral interventions to address the root causes of addiction.

Residential and Inpatient Programs

A residential treatment program usually occurs after detox. At this point,  a person is in a mental and physical place to receive proper treatment for addiction. Most programs last about 90 days, and clients will live within the treatment facility.

Residential treatment programs often include therapeutic services like cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. They also include group therapy settings in which peers are sitting together discussing a topic. 

With holistic treatment approaches, treating the person as a whole can be beneficial during a residential program at our Austin treatment center. This means addressing the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of addiction.

Addiction affects all facets of a person and in order to achieve recovery and peace, all facets should be addressed and treated. Recovery is possible with the proper care.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial hospitalization, or PHP, is a level of care that is less intensive than detox and residential. It is a form of outpatient in the sense that you are not in the same area 24 hours per day.

During this time, treatment for drug and alcohol addiction truly begins. Therapy and healing can begin. 

During PHP, a person is under the care of professionals. However, it is a little different because during this type of treatment, an individual would go to group and individual therapy during certain hours, and return to a sober living environment after day treatment is completed.

In the sober living environment, there is more free time and a person is able to begin taking care of themselves again. While day treatment is going on, a person will see a medical doctor, as well as a mental health counselor or therapist and participate in group sessions. 

Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive outpatient, or IOP, is a lower level of care where a person can participate in group and individual therapies during program hours, then return to normal living once after. This level of care is suitable for those who have stabilized and have learned some of the needed tools to maintain recovery with minimal supervision.

An IOP program usually is available after detox and residential as well as a PHP have been completed. During IOP, a person will go to the treatment facility during designated hours. They will participate in group and individual therapy, usually about 3-4 hours per day a few times a week.

After program hours, the person will then return to everyday living. This can include family duties, extracurricular activities, and work. At this point in recovery, they have the tools to handle life stressors without turning to drugs and alcohol as a means of coping. 

Peer Support and Recovery Programs

As part of our Austin treatment center’s approach, we offer multiple options for inclusive peer support programs. This allows each individual person to choose what works best for them and their recovery path. It is important to know that recovery isn’t linear and that different people heal and recover in different ways. However, the common goal of recovery from addiction is an important factor in all of these programs. 

12-Step Programs

The 12 steps began with the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Here the steps are laid for an individual to go through and work, traditionally with a sponsor, in order to maintain recovery. It is a peer-led community in which the common goal is to maintain recovery from addiction to harmful substances. The process of working the steps has the purpose of addressing the physical, mental, and spiritual parts of a person seeking recovery. 

Twelve-step recovery programs have been a cornerstone of addiction treatment for decades. These steps have been adapted for various substance use disorders as well as behavioral addictions. In addition, family support groups, like Al-Anon, also use 12-step models.

At our Austin Treatment Center, we use a modern form of integrating a 12-step program into the lives of clients under our care. 

Self Management and Recovery Training (SMART) Recovery

SMART recovery is based on the principle of abstinence. The goal of SMART recovery is to change the person’s life from destructive and unhappy to a more positively happy, and constructive life. A life that they are happy to be living so that they do not return to using substances in order to feel a false sense of happiness. The scientific coping skills and methods are meant to empower a person to begin building the life that they want to live. 

Using the 4 Points Program, SMART recovery works as a catalyst to produce behavioral change. The 4 Points Program consists of:

  • Building and maintaining motivation for change
  • Coping with urges to use substances
  • Managing thoughts, feelings, and emotions effectively
  • Living a balanced, healthy, and positive life

Refuge Recovery

As a Buddhist-based approach to addiction recovery, Refuge Recovery is a spiritual approach aiming to create spiritual healing. Noah Levine founded Refuge Recovery, and the recovery program uses mindfulness, meditation, personal inventory, and peer support in order to address the root causes of addiction.

Refuge Recovery meetings provide a safe space for individuals to share their experiences, meditate, and have group discussions with a common goal of beating addiction. There is no requirement to believe in a god or gods in any form or fashion. The only request from Refuge Recovery is to trust the process. 

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical program that is Christian based. It is designed to provide support for people with different hurts, struggles, and addictions. John Baker created Celebrate Recovery by incorporating biblical principles with the 12-step models in order to help guide people to spiritual growth and recovery. 

Celebrate Recovery can be used to recover from a wide variety of things like codependency and addiction. The core principles include admitting powerlessness, surrendering to God, working through a moral inventory, making amends, and living a life of service.
