Men’s Short-Term Residential Rehab Program
Austin Recovery Men’s Short-Term Residential Treatment Program (Awakening) is located on our 40-acre Hicks Family Ranch in South Austin.
In our Short-Term Treatment Program, clients receive both individual and group therapy sessions along with lectures, experience-based therapies, music & art sessions, yoga, drumming and exercise classes. A full daily schedule of clinical activities keep our clients engaged in their recovery while providing a level of services that match or exceed programs of far greater cost. Our men’s program uses our Transformation Treatment Model designed especially for men to bring about the emotional and spiritual changes needed for a full and rewarding recovery.
Clients progress at their own pace through the first five steps of the Twelve Step program. Each client completes an individualized treatment plan that is frequently updated and focuses on helping him identify and resolve relapse issues while successfully transitioning to the next level of care.
Weekly family visitation is encouraged and clients are escorted to outside 12 Step meetings in the nearby community. Volunteers from the recovery community, including Austin Recovery’s own Alumni Association bring frequent meetings to our men and provide them with opportunities for finding fellowship and sponsors in recovery when they leave our programs.
Men’s Journey Program
Austin Recovery’s Men’s Journey Program builds on the foundation of the Short-Term Residential Treatment Program and is also located on the 40 acres of the Hicks Family Ranch. The Journey Program is offered to all those needing or wishing to stay longer to practice new skills and behaviors in recovery. In addition to step work, lectures, individual and group therapy, men in the Journey program further develop life management skills, look for jobs and re-enter society free of the chaos of drugs and alcohol. A typical stay in the Journey Program is 90 days or more, and includes participation for up to two loved ones in the three-day Family Experience.
