Beautiful isolated facility. Over-emphasis on Christian approach. It's an absolutely first-class facility in terms of location and amenities.

I got my life back! Caron educated me on the disease of addiction. They gave me hope for a future life of sobriety, which I never believed was possible.

The staff was a strength of the facility. However, the cost was a downfall of the facility.

Areas of Focus
12-Step, SMART & Celebrate Recovery

While the 12-Step self-help approach to recovery is widely utilized in Texas, this approach does not suit everyone in treatment for addiction. Serenity View offers SMART Recovery and Celebrate Recovery as two alternatives, one based in science and the other based in Christian-faith. Having options for all treatment needs and lifestyles is an important aspect of Serenity View's individualized approach to care.

Personal Trainers & Mind-Body Wellness

With a state-of-the-art fitness center and gym, two personal trainers, and a dietitian on staff, patients at Serenity View will be able to develop an exercise regimen and dietary plan with one-on-one sessions to address their individual nutritional and fitness needs. Having an exercise routine in place after treatment can be lifesaving as it keeps people healthy and focused on healing while providing an outlet to deal with stressors and triggers they may encounter in day-to-day life.

Spiritual Support

Serenity View offers spiritual support for patients who wish to incorporate their religious beliefs into their treatment program. Many people find strength in their faith and benefit from having their religious practice go hand-in-hand with recovery. Texas offers spiritual support through the services of a pastoral counselor who can guide patients spiritually whether Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish. There are two hours of worship on Sunday and Bible study offered Monday and Wednesday nights, but the pastoral counselor will also offer non-denominational spiritual groups.

Sexual Trauma/Sex Addiction

With a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist on staff, Serenity View is able to address a history of sexual trauma or sex addiction that may be an underlying cause of a substance use disorder.

Caters to the Needs of Executives and Professionals in Recovery

Texas is able to cater to the needs of executives, professionals, and business owners in treatment who may need to check work emails and attend meetings during treatment in order to stay on track in their work. This outside contact must be approved by the clinical team and the patient's primary therapist, but Texas will absolutely work with patients so that they may maintain their livelihood even in treatment.

Alumni Testimonials
  • I got my treatment from Sunspire Health Texas; I feel comfortable and, with confidence, I can say that it turned my life around for good. I spent a month there and it was a very rewarding experience. I rate my therapist, as excellent; she provided me with tools to better understand who I was. My therapist is the Clinical Director and I was fortunate to have therapy and counseling from her. It was really an eye opener for me. The therapy staff is excellent and has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the problems that addicts and alcoholics face. Some of the therapists also act as family counselors and are highly qualified, and get involved and sincerely work with the patient and families to help reach a harmonious, mutual understanding by setting up phone calls and family days. The treatment program is rigorous with AA- and NA-meetings, excellent counselors who know the 12-step program, class book studies, sharing past events in life with other patients, and 12-step work. The patients have their daily morning and evening meetings with a staff member monitoring the meeting but not interfering. There are doctors and nursing staff who are kind and very well informed. The lectures on nutrition are excellent, along with a gym and trainers. The cafeteria staff is excellent with providing different food choices and more importantly, dishing out generous portions. There is a staff [member] to help the patient locate a sober-living place to continue the ongoing successful recovery process after the treatment. Jena is good at keeping track of the alumni, and she sends out an invitation for alumni to participate in the activities in Sunspire Health after the patients have left the treatment. I will recommend to anyone who is interested in transforming their life for the better.
    Kumar, Texas Alumni 2017
  • When I first arrived at Sunspire, I was broken, confused and scared to death. I am not a small person, and I often use this to my advantage. The staff at Sunspire never batted an eye and accepted me as I was. They showed me love and compassion even when I had none for myself. What I experienced was a long journey of learning things about myself and how to accept and get beyond all of my hang-ups and setbacks. I was also introduced to AA. [In AA], I discovered there is fun and excitement in recovery through the 12 steps and having a Higher Power. At Sunspire, I was surrounded by a loving and caring staff who led by example and showed me that my recovery is an action and gave me the tools for my success. Thank you Sunspire for saving my life, my spirit and my All!
