Austin Recovery Residential

13207 Wright Road, Austin, Texas, 78745
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. Finally, we have added a unique group of experience-based therapies specifically designed to help you feel and experience the changes as they occur. Taken together, these three components form what we call “The Austin Recovery Way.”

I completed the 30 day program earlier this year and was extremely satisfied with my treatment. The facility is clean and comfortable, the meals were great, and the staff was friendly, caring, and supportive. I have been able to maintain my sobriety and owe it to Austin Recovery.

Avoid this place, if you are dually diagnosed. Also, they house patients like they are in jail.

Austin Recovery is a very caring and effective treatment facility. They have a high standard of accountability and treat.all residents equal, regardless of their financial situation. They treat "funded", self-pay, and insured and they all seem to receive a similar level of treatment. A caring and well trained staff who go an extre mile to reach an addicts desire to change.

My daughter went to Austin Recovery. Her father and I had taken custody of her 2 young sons due to her heroin addiction. She had been living on the streets for a year with their loser father. She completed the program, came home, relapsed, and has now been clean on the methadone program for 2 years, working full time since she got out, is a fabulous mom to her boys (now 11 and 12), and we thank Austin Recovery for saving all of us! IT CAN BE DONE.
