Residential Treatment

The Council on Recovery offers three types of residential treatment programs focused specifically on addressing both men’s and women’s needs through our Transformational Treatment Model, designed to bring about the emotional and spiritual changes needed for a full and rewarding recovery:

Short-Term Residential Treatment (30 Days)
Located on our 100-acre Hicks Family Ranch in South Austin, the short-term residential treatment program offers an individualized treatment plan for each client that includes individual and group therapy sessions, lectures, experiential therapies, yoga, drumming and fitness equipment. A full daily schedule of clinical activities keeps our clients engaged in their recovery while providing the highest quality of services that match and exceed programs of greater cost.

Long-Term Residential Treatment (90+ Days)
Our long-term residential treatment program, also located on the 100 acres of our Hicks Family Ranch in South Austin, is offered to all clients needing or wishing to stay longer to practice new skills and behaviors in recovery. In addition to individual and group therapy, lectures, and 12 Step work, clients who enroll in our long-term program further develop life management skills, look for jobs, and re-enter society free of the chaos of drugs and alcohol. Clients are able to delve deeper into therapeutic concerns such as trauma recovery and family dynamics. In addition, Family Experience is included for long-term residential clients.

Family House
For more than 25 years in Austin, The Council on Recovery’s Family House has pioneered this highly specialized form of treatment providing quality residential chemical dependency treatment services to a mother accompanied by a child under the age of 6 years old. The Council’s Family House is one of only a handful of treatment programs in Texas that offers women the opportunity to bring a child with them into treatment so that they may focus fully on their recovery from an alcohol or drug addiction, without worrying about their family.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment at The Council on Recovery helps clients create a stable environment by providing the structure, support and solid foundation needed for long-term recovery. The Council on Recovery offers multiple levels of outpatient alcohol and drug rehab that may be right for you or your loved one, depending on your unique situation.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Intensive outpatient addiction treatment is offered to clients who are able to stay clean and sober on their own, but may be at high risk for relapse or who need extra care due to co-occurring mental health challenges or other issues. The Council on Recovery’s intensive outpatient rehab program helps clients create a stable environment by giving them structure and support while they establish a solid foundation for recovery. It is often a beneficial step-down from the highly structured environment of inpatient/residential treatment and helps our clients adjust gradually to their new way of life.

In addition, through our Center for Recovering Families we offer unique intensive and supportive outpatient treatment services to individuals and families within the context of their family of origin and current family system. Please click here to learn more.

Aftercare and Recovery Support Services

Treatment is not the end of the story. Recovery is a lifestyle that must be achieved, maintained and embraced throughout an individual’s lifetime.

After the completion of your primary drug and alcohol treatment, we invite you to continue your relationship with us as we support you through our aftercare services. Aftercare takes many shapes and can include continued outpatient counseling, recovery support services, support groups, workshops and even participation in our Alumni ProgramThese services are aimed to help individuals enter and navigate systems of care, remove barriers to recovery, stay engaged in the recovery process, and ultimately live fulfilling lives.

Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the tools and support you need to ensure that you can achieve your goals and sustain your recovery on a long-term basis.
