What if I'm placed on a waiting list?

Our waitlist changes all the time, but the people who get moved up are the people who keep checking in. Check in every single day if you want. The easier it is for our admissions team to stay in touch with you, the easier it is to move you up when a spot becomes available.

How often can I see/communicate with my loved ones?

Weekly phone calls and visitation on weekends is allowed. It’s important to use the time in treatment to focus on yourself and your recovery and additional contact during your stay can be arranged with your counselor.

I'm anxious about treatment, is that normal?

It is ENTIRELY NORMAL to be anxious! Chances are we are at our worst when entering treatment, we’re worried for our family members and loved ones, and we have no idea what to expect. The average client coming to treatment is filled with anxiety, nervousness, and fear of the unknown. The unknown being what treatment is going to be like, what being sober is going to feel like, and what staff and other clients are going to be like. We do our best to provide a calm and informative admission environment with staff who love what they do. We also offer tours to see the facility and meet team members so clients and families know what to expect.

Will I be denied treatment if I'm intoxicated when I arrive for my stay?

No, however, we may need to arrange for detox or a more thorough medical assessment/observation to make sure it is safe for you to be in residential treatment at Austin Recovery. We will help you take the next steps and then ensure you return to treatment at Austin Recovery if detox is necessary. Beginning in the spring of 2019, Austin Recovery will have detox onsite again!

*Individuals who need a higher level of care will be directly referred out to a trusted partner for detox or mental health care. Austin Recovery will never “close the door” on a person in need of treatment and our team will assist to the best of our capabilities to locate a facility that is better suited for an individual’s needs.
