A typical Google search for drug treatment facilities will yield upwards of 17 million possible sites and\/or articles to explore, many of which are produced or sponsored by facilities that will boast of their success rates. Nothing, though, attests to a center\u2019s ability to change lives quite like the stories from people who have \u201cbeen there and done that.\u201d Those who have been addicted \u2013 and then been made well again \u2013 know like no others exactly what it is that helps one facility separate itself from the others. At Promises Austin, the accolades from guests who have experienced the center\u2019s unique alcohol- or drug-treatment programs represent the facility\u2019s signature accomplishment: It truly does help turn lives around in profound and lasting ways. And the words bear repeating: \t\u201cI am very grateful that my first and, hopefully, last experience in rehab was at Promises Austin. This place is very special and that is because of the staff, surroundings, and environment.\u201d \t\u00a0\u201cFabulous treatment center! Can\u2019t put into words how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to come here.\u201d \t\u00a0\u201cSix months! On Sept. 13, 2010 I had my last drink on the way to Promises Austin. Today, I am very happy to be sober and functional again. Thank you all who reached out during a difficult time. It was not always easy to be locked up and \u201cabused\u201d by the staff \u2013 ha,ha! But, looking back, I had a great time at Promises Austin and the \u201cheartless\u201d staff did a great job. I laughed more in the weeks at Promises Austin than I had in years as a \u2018happy drunk\u2019. And I found a new life, new friends, and new reasons to be happy without being drunk. Best wishes to all.\u201d The realized dream of facility founder George Joseph, Promises Austin provides a unique, holistic program of addiction treatment to guests who are striving to end a dependence on alcohol or on drugs.
