Promises Austin Highlights
Promises Austin has a reputation for sophisticated addiction and dual diagnosis treatment and a commitment to 100% client satisfaction. We are a Joint Commission accredited treatment center for men and women ages 26 and older. Our Austin rehab center accepts a small number of clients at a time and maintains a superior staff-to-client ratio, ensuring the extraordinary level of personalized attention that our clients have come to expect from Promises.
Here are some of the ways we stand out from other addiction treatment centers:
Treatment for Adults Ages 26+
All of our clients are 26 years of age and older. This age requirement creates a more mature and meaningful treatment experience and adds to the comfort level of our clients. At Promises Austin, you’ll receive treatment alongside peers you can relate to who share similar life experiences.
We accept a maximum of 24 clients at a time. Our small size – in addition to our exceptional staff-to-client ratio and 5-10 hours of one-on-one practitioner attention every week – ensures that you receive the personalized care and one-on-one attention you deserve. Each client sees their therapist for individual sessions three times per week.
Clients typically arrive at Promises Austin drained emotionally, spiritually and physically. Our Texas rehab center provides healing in all of these areas. In addition to traditional therapies such as individual and group counseling, we offer more than a dozen different holistic therapies, from acupuncture and massage therapy at our onsite spa to Integrative Breathwork, yoga and Native American Healing traditions.View Our Therapies
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Our clients receive integrated treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders from a team of experienced counselors, a full-time physician and 24-hour nursing staff. They also see our psychiatrist once or twice per week. Our psychologist completes comprehensive assessments as clinically necessary, utilizing multiple assessment tools, and is available for individual therapy sessions as an ancillary service.
Trauma and PTSD are often underlying issues that lead to and perpetuate addiction. We have staff specially trained in treating trauma and draw on therapies shown to help heal trauma such as cognitive behavioral therapy and EMDR.Learn More About Trauma Treatment

Focus on a Healthy Lifestyle
At Promises Austin, you’ll learn to live substance-free, and also to live well. Our innovative health and wellness program includes individualized nutrition plans, weekly group fitness classes, yoga, personal training and more. Treatment begins with an assessment by a multidisciplinary team of professionals including members trained in the fields of dietetics and nutritional counseling. We develop a profile of your current nutritional situation and chart a course to replenish key nutrients and improve your health throughout treatment with proper nutrition and exercise.Learn More
Fun in Recovery
We create exciting and challenging real-world experiences that will prepare you for life outside treatment. Our therapeutic recreation program, which includes trips to restaurants, movies and other venues, will show you how much fun recovery can be. These activities will also give you a chance to test your new skills while residing in a structured, supportive treatment setting.
Promises Austin helps clients address shame and learn the rewards of vulnerability and authenticity. We have master’s level staff specially trained in The Daring Way™ shame resilience curriculum. This highly acclaimed experiential approach is based on the research of author, speaker and shame researcher Dr. Brené Brown. We also offer a three-day Rising Strong™ workshop based on Dr. Brown’s book, Rising Strong. Led by a certified Rising Strong facilitator and master’s level therapists, the workshop builds upon the work clients do in The Daring Way™.
Comprehensive Family Involvement
Addiction impacts the entire family. That’s why it’s important that loved ones also recover from its effects. Promises Austin addiction rehab involves family in treatment, providing family therapy as clinically appropriate and offering a monthly two-day family program. Loved ones learn about the disease of addiction, family roles, signs of relapse, relapse prevention and how to best support themselves and their loved one in recovery.Learn More
Attention to Spirituality
Spirituality is a central aspect of our addiction recovery program. To facilitate spiritual exploration in various forms, we offer a medicine wheel, a labyrinth, optional weekly trips to a local church, and meditation. Our phase structure, which uses Native American symbolism, is designed to help you make changes that will bring meaning and purpose into your life. We encourage free expression and exploration and hope that you find strength in your personal experience of spirituality.
Continuing care planning will help you make a smooth transition back into everyday life and obtain the ongoing help you need to thrive in recovery. We’ll help you identify and effectively navigate triggers and maintain motivation in recovery.Learn More About Continuing Care
