Treatment Insights

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.”

They kept you busy and really thinking about recovery with all the information in the classes. They didn't seem to address other issues that coexisted, like mental health.

Wasn't terribly personal. Felt like they just went through the motions. It was a 12-step based program and felt very generic. Like they primarily wanted to cycle us through.

I don't believe AA based treatment is any more effective than lack of treatment. Expensive.
