It Takes a Comprehensive Treatment Approach to Beat Addiction The Promises Austin alcohol-and drug-treatment facility in the Hill Country just outside of Austin, Texas, is the realized dream of George Joseph, COO of TRS Behavioral Care and recovery community notable. Using the substance abuse struggles of his youth and the education he received as a result of that experience, Joseph tailored Promises Austin to be a state-of-the-industry, upscale alcohol- and drug-treatment alternative that successfully changes lives. Now, after three decades of a professional career in the chemical dependency field, Joseph is one of the country\u2019s foremost authorities on the subject. Indeed, he is a recipient of the \u201cNational Counselor of the Year Award\u201d from the National Association of Addiction Professionals, and he is frequently consulted by other drug treatment professionals hoping to tap his expertise. His realized concept, Promises Austin, provides all the evidence they need to know that the facility and its founder are revolutionary, constantly evolving, and, most of all, successful in addressing the often agonizing challenges involved with addiction. \u201cThrough the years, it has been my dream to create a new concept in the treatment of alcoholism and drug addiction,\u201d Joseph says. \u201cThe Promises Austin model is a breakthrough in the way treatment is delivered. I have dedicated the past 28 years to treatment and recovery excellence and now have created an effective, innovative program in a beautiful, healing environment.\u201d Joseph knows of what he speaks. Since assuming leadership of Right Step, Promises Austin\u2019s sister facility, in 1994, he has grown the organization from a single treatment center to multiple locations that comprise the largest drug- and alcohol- addiction conglomerate in the Southwest. Promises Austin takes the tried-and-true treatment foundation found at Right Step, and embellishes it through a holistic medical regimen and a picturesque setting that simultaneously transform the mind, body, and spirit. \u201cWe serve no more than 24 guests at one time, both men and women, over 26 years of age.\u201d Joseph says. \u201cThe minimum stay is 35 days. The core element in addiction recovery is the Twelve Step model, but Promises Austin expands this core to integrate the physical, mental, emotional, family, and spiritual health needs and related treatment plans for each individual.\u201d The facility\u2019s team of MDs (addiction and psychiatric specializations), PhDs, therapists, LCDCs, nutritionists, educators, and staff, work collaboratively and individually with each guest via onsite spa services, personal trainers, gourmet chefs, nutritional counseling, hiking and biking, meditation, yoga and other recreational and educational enrichment opportunities. \u201cThe treatment plan equips our guests with the necessary tools to conquer their addictions and live healthy, sober lives,\u201d Joseph says. \u201cOur drug and alcohol rehabilitation program has three primary components: a comprehensive assessment, a personalized treatment plan, and one year of recovery coaching after completing the in-residence program. This program has been carefully developed with tried and tested methods for ensuring the most comprehensive addiction recovery program possible to achieve successful sobriety and healthy life change.\u201d To learn about how you or a loved one can enjoy this change, please visit our website or call us at: 888.293.2202.
