Promises Treatment Centers Expands to Southwest with Introduction of Promises Austin in Texas

Promises family of treatment centers expands to the Southwest with the introduction of luxury Texas drug rehabilitation center Promises Austin, formerly Spirit Lodge. Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 7, 2013 – Promises Treatment Centers is proud to introduce a new addition to its family of treatment programs: Promises Austin luxury addiction and dual diagnosis treatment center in Texas. This addition marks Promises’ first expansion outside of Southern California in its 25-year history. Promises’ family of treatment centers now includes an internationally renowned addiction and dual diagnosis treatment center in Malibu; a young adult drug and alcohol treatment program in West Los Angeles; a women’s mental health treatment center called Malibu Vista; a men’s substance abuse and intimacy disorders program; and now a drug rehabilitation center just outside Austin, Texas. In 2011, Promises’ parent organization, Promises Behavioral Health, acquired Right Step, a network of addiction treatment centers in Texas that included a high-end drug rehab program called Spirit Lodge. Promises Austin was born out of Spirit Lodge. With a shared vision of providing highly effective, innovative treatment in a beautiful, healing environment, Spirit Lodge was a clear choice to carry the Promises name in the Southwest. “Since joining forces with Promises Behavioral Health, we’ve been able to further enhance the breadth and depth of our clinical programming at Spirit Lodge,” said Jonathan Ross, regional vice president of Right Step. “We are honored to carry the Promises name and provide the type of innovative, world-class treatment clients have come to expect from Promises.” Promises Austin treats a maximum of 24 clients at a time, ages 26 and over, many of whom are professionals and other individuals who require the highest standards of privacy and discretion. In this intimate setting, clients recover among peers who are equally committed to the process and receive highly personalized care from a team of experienced psychiatrists, physicians, counselors, a doctorate-level psychologist, an EMDR-trained trauma specialist, and 24-hour nursing staff. Promises Austin offers medically monitored drug and alcohol detox and comprehensive, 12-step based treatment for dual diagnosis, or substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Its 35- and 60-day addiction and dual diagnosis treatment programs include: • A comprehensive, individualized assessment with a doctorate-level psychologist • Ongoing consultations with a psychiatrist, psychologist, nutritionist, spiritual adviser and personal trainer, as needed • At least two weekly individual counseling sessions • Approximately 10 hours per week of small group counseling sessions • Weekly family involvement and a three-day intensive family program • An innovative fitness and nutrition program • One year of Recovery Coaching with a primary therapist Promises Austin provides healing in all of the areas that are impacted by addiction, including mind, body and spirit. The treatment team utilizes traditional evidence-based therapies, such as individual, group and family therapy, 12-step involvement, educational lectures, cognitive behavioral therapy and other time-tested approaches. In addition, clients have the opportunity to participate in more than a dozen complementary therapies, from yoga, acupuncture and massage therapy to EMDR, aqua therapy, drum circles, art therapy and more. Promises Austin also offers Integrative Breathwork, a blend of evocative music, art therapy and clinical process groups that helps clients access and begin to address core issues that often underpin addiction. “For years, clients and clinicians have expressed a need for a Promises treatment center in the Southwest for those seeking the most sophisticated treatment in a location that is closer to home,” said Dr. David Sack, CEO of Promises Treatment Centers. “Promises Austin will meet this need and carry on Promises’ commitment to exceptional, personalized care and 100% client satisfaction.”
