Doc Talk – Dr Powers on Promises Austin
“Promises Austin also offers a unique family program,” explains Dr. Powers. The Family Weekend is a monthly three-day event during which patients’ families join them on their journey to recovery. “Addiction recovery is not a spectator sport,” Dr. Powers says. “When a loved one has an addiction, we all have it.” The supportive and educational program helps families strengthen or reform the bonds that may have weakened while the patient was using.
A vital component to any recovery program is the spiritual component, “no matter what higher power you believe in,” according to Dr. Powers. Promises Austin provides a spiritual counselor who can help fuse patients’ physical and emotional healing with spiritual healing and guidance. Supporting and renewing one’s spirituality is an essential part of recovery.
In addition to these holistic approaches to alcoholism counseling, Promises Austin offers medically supervised inpatient detoxification, Suboxone® detoxification, and aftercare that meet the same high standards as all the Right Step treatment centers located throughout Texas.
Remember that helping someone overcome addiction is a gift born of compassion. For more information on admission to the Promises Austin, please click here.
