How it works:

8 Dimensions of Wellness

Addiction reaches into the very core of its victims and drains them of purpose, power and joy. We work to reverse that and bring our clients to live fulfilling and service driven lives so they can get and stay sober with a purpose. We do this using our 8 Dimensions Of Infinite Wellness approach. It works through holistically integrating recovery in every level of our client's lives. With this approach our clients don’t just get sober, they become better all around. This, combined with the proven Twelve Step method, helps our clients lead fulfilling lives with the aid of a holistic plan to help them maintain sobriety.

First Dimension

Emotional Wellness

Emotional Wellness is the first dimension. Here clients are guided to develop key qualities to re-envision their lives in a better light. This includes learning optimism, trust, self-confidence, and determination. Why?

Because addiction is often a symptom of deeper unresolved emotional traumas. Through developing Emotional Wellness clients can escape self-destructive patterns and get help for un or mis-diagnosed psychological disorders.

Second Dimension

Environmental Wellness

Environmental Wellness is where client’s learn how to positively interact with their environment. They do this through developing a proactive plan to accept and deal with things outside their control.

This isn’t about making clients comfortable in a non-care setting-although it does. It’s about helping clients thrive no matter their environment. You can’t control the real world. Acknowledging this in treatment lets clients access emotions and issues so healing can take place. Healing happens through clients bonding with peers, developing rapport with staff, and increasing endorphins and dopamine levels in the brains without chemicals, drugs, or alcohol.

Therapy can be as simple as a relaxing day at Lake Travis, enjoying an art or dance class, or interacting with therapy animals. Therapeutic activities guide clients to align with the everyday pleasures of the world around them and produce a positive and proactive outlook on the world.

Third Dimension

Social Wellness

We believe clients need a strong support system, the ability to learn to have fun in a sober manner, and the skills to maintain, or repair, relationships. We do this by focusing on Social Wellness through peer support specialists, sober recreation, and our alumni program. We actively promote social wellness outside treatment with a variety of activities clients can engage with to grow.

Social Wellness is more than just getting comfortable going out. It also focuses on healing relationships touched by addiction with friends, family, and the community. For clients whose interactions are limited due to legal issues we provide support to navigate legal systems with a court liaison.

Fourth Dimension

Spiritual Wellness

Recovery is a physical, social, and spiritual process. That’s why we focus on developing Spiritual Wellness by helping you connect with the things that give you meaning. This isn’t a faith based practice but instead a journey to cultivate spiritual curiosity with the world at large.

Spiritual Wellness is developed through meditation, mindfulness practices, and spiritual retreat. For specific interest we offer tracks for Gospel Recovery, the Zen of Recovery, or the proven Twelve Steps method.

Fifth Dimension

Physical Wellness

Substance abuse damages the body. We work to repair that through Physical Wellness. This isn’t about looking fit. It’s about developing a consistent practice of discipline and determination that increase self-esteem and self-worth. Both keys to maintaining long-term recovery and a high quality of life.

We help you develop Physical Wellness by creating personally tailored nutrition and wellness plans to aid in your addiction recovery. Our Physical Wellness programs develop focus in three areas: nutrition, fitness, and ongoing wellness. 

Sixth Dimension

Financial Wellness

One of the biggest barriers in recovery is personal finance. Substance abuse and its legal fees often put our clients in a financially insecure position. These often are the worst relapse triggers for addicts. Through Financial Wellness we address these issues and pre-empt re-use by helping our clients develop a plan to become financially ‘well’.

Financial Wellness does this through counseling that focuses on financial issues such as personal finance, how to overcome compulsive spending, how to manage (or get) student loans, planning for a financially safe future, dealing with gambling related problems, and making any financial amends during recovery.

Seventh Dimension

Occupational Wellness

With Occupational Wellness we help our clients develop the tools they need to maintain healthy ongoing relationships with their job or school. We do this by coaching them on proactive practices to deal with the stress these situations produce.

Alongside learning tools to positively deal with stress, Occupational Wellness also guides you with counseling to find and apply for jobs. We help develop interview skills through mock interviews and work with clients to apply for school and financial aid.

Eighth Dimension

Intellectual Wellness

It’s not enough to just get sober. That is why we promote Intellectual Wellness. Through it we stimulate interest in the larger world by developing curiosity with reading, writing, art, engaging in ongoing education, enjoying media, and following creative pursuits.

Through exploring their passions our clients discover new things about themselves that create a positive new identity free of substance abuse.

How To Identify Substance Abuse

Are you worried someone you love is suffering quietly with substance abuse? We can help. We’ve included 11 questions put together by the National Institute On Drug Abuse. Follow along and answer them and, if possible, include the person in the discussion-if they are willing.

1

Does the person take the drug in larger amounts or for longer than intended?

2

Does the person want to cut down or stop using the drug but cannot?

3

Do they spend a lot of time getting, using, or recovering from the drug?

4

Do they have cravings and urges to use the drug?

5

Are they unable to manage responsibilities at work, home, or school because of drug use?

6

Do they continue to use a drug, even when it causes problems in relationships?

7

Do they give up important social, recreational, or work-related activities because of drug use?

8

Does the person use drugs again and again, even when it puts him or her in danger?

9

Do they continue to use, even while knowing that a physical or mental problem could have been caused or made worse by the drug?

10

Do they take higher doses of the drug to get the wanted effect?

11

Have they developed withdrawal symptoms, which can be relieved by taking more of the drug?

Some withdrawal symptoms can be obvious, but others can be more subtle—like irritability or nervousness.

If you answered ‘yes’ to some, or all, of these questions your loved one could be suffering from substance abuse. In the worst situations they call it an ‘addiction’. If you want to learn more, get an in depth assessment to be sure, or speak with our admission specialists about what actions you can take to start your loved one on the road to recovery call us at (844) 206-9063 or fill out the form below.

Complete Re-Integration Treatment

To successfully get sober and stay sober at our Alcohol and Drug Rehabs in Texas requires re-integrating into everyday life. This can be the most difficult part in the sobriety journey. To ensure a successful transition we offer complete re-integration treatment by providing a full continuum of care. Each level is designed and supported by professionals. They include guidance from a master’s level therapist, licensed addiction counselors, and our recovery support specialists. The path to wellness has ups and downs. That is why every level of treatment has a different level of intensity. These levels come in a unique combination of holistic and hands on approaches used to grow client wellness at our outpatient treatment Austin.

We guide each resident in the journey to recovery by helping them curate optimum treatment based on their experience.

Recovery is a unique experience and requires treatment tailored to each person’s health, state, and needs. That is why we promote a holistic approach. Through its lens, total recovery becomes a state of transformation. Recovery doesn’t work when it’s merely a vacation from the real world. That’s why we focus on both our residents’ integration and restoration. We help residents transform their health, relationships with the people that matter most, their work, school, social activities, and most importantly- their self.
