Starlite Recovery Center offers help for everyone whose lives are impacted by addiction and alcoholism. Primary treatment is merely the initial step in the overall recovery process. Our goal of promoting an abstinent lifestyle, one that is lasting and productive, is predicated upon intervention and education which demonstrate to the addicted individual the path of success and how others achieved it. Starlite Recovery Center, located on 55 acres of beautiful Texas hill country, offers an unmatched natural environment in which to recover from the devastating effects of drug addiction and alcoholism. Innovative chemical dependency treatment has been the hallmark of Starlite Recovery Center for over 3 decades. Our professional staff of physicians, counselors, and nurses provide clients with an interdisciplinary team that effectively manages their individualized care. Starlite views chemical dependency as a primary disease, one which is progressive and potentially fatal. It may severely impair functioning in all major life areas. Starlite provides programs that deliver a comprehensive, individualized continuum of care for chemically dependent persons and/or their family members who have been affected by the diseases of alcoholism and/or drug addiction.

Loving and caring center that care about their patients and their familiesI can't think of anyA loving and caring staff that care about their patients and their families.
Good 12 step educationToo big not enough time with therapyWish i could of stayed longer than 30 days but did a good job getting me into sober living
Location, strong recovery community. Lack of physical activities, poor after care plan. Good counseling staff, great location, Kerrville is a wonderful place to recover.
Rules need to be improved. Great 12 program, and great staff

The people are wonderful; most of the staff are in recovery. However, there was not enough diversity in treatment options.

I had too much information about treatment before I arrived there. It was just a way for me to escape Houston The staff was great; however, I did have have enough local support.
It was a nice facility with a wonderful setting and counselors.

Further management changes are necessary to achieve professionalism.
My insurance would not cover outpatient services; however, they did assist me in finding a half-way house to move into immediately upon discharge. I did not relapse. I highly recommend this facility ...
Helped me out.
