Evidence Based - Drug TreatmentA growing body of scientific research is changing the way men receive services for alcohol and other drug addictions. At The Last Resort, we’ve incorporated these changes into the program design of our fully licensed facility, assuring that men receive all the necessary tools to build a fulfilling life in recovery. Some of our evidence-based practices include an emphasis on gender specific drug and alcohol treatment that may be unmatched in our field. Our model addresses the special addiction treatment needs of men as few other programs have the resources to do. Our model is holistic; it introduces men to more than just rehashed education about addiction, but to an array of experiences that immerse them in an exciting world of recovery. Our model is client-centered; it accepts each man where he is and uses new Motivational Interviewing techniques to move him toward his goals. Our model is developmental, identifying roadblocks that may have kept a man from recovering from drugs and alcohol before and focused toward seeing that it doesn’t happen again. Read More...

12 Step Based - Addiction RehabMost alcohol and drug treatment centers label themselves “12 step based,” but the sad reality is that, all too often, their clients receive very little exposure to or experience of the life changing principles embedded in the original program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Those principles are often the very thing a man has missed if he has had previous recovery failures, because as one long-time addictions expert puts it bluntly, “If nothing changes…. nothing changes!” On admission at The Last Resort, our program immerses a man in the 12 Step world of recovery where he spends less time “studying” the problems of addiction but real time “living” in the solution from addiction. Doing this in the company of other men and through the example and encouragement of staff who have found their own answers and are eager to share – all of this goes to the heart of the transformation or “psychic change” needed to bring a man lasting recovery from drugs and alcohol.

Testimonials - Alumni and Family"Since leaving the Last Resort, I moved into a sober home in Austin and have begun to live my life based on the spiritual principles I learned through treatment. With a new since of freedom I’ve focused on my moment-to-moment experiences while forming new connections with other people in sobriety. I’m amazed with the level of peace I have in my life today and I’m truly grateful to be alive. The spiritual tools I acquired at the Last Resort along with guidance from higher power have brought me joy again and an ability to stay in the present moment. Although I don’t have much money, I can honestly say that I am happy. I’m not sure where I’ll go in the future, but I’m prepared to handle my emotions and willing to grow in my sobriety. Life is a beautiful mystery. I will never know all the answers, but I will look inside myself to find the truth and share my love and experience with all of those along their own journey." Read more…

On-Site Equine Therapy For Addiction Treatment in Texas
Man and horse have formed a unique spiritual bond that stretches back thousands of years. Horse and rider join to become one. But only recently have scientists proved in their social laboratories what tribal societies have intuitively known for thousands of years: that the spirit of the horse connects with the spirit of man at some of the deepest of levels of his soul.
Men recovering from the ravages of drug or alcohol addiction find themselves isolated both socially and spiritually. Often, they have estranged themselves not only from their families and friends, but also from some of the deepest parts of themselves. And this is where research is proving equine sessions to be so effective a tool. In fact, it has now become a recognized “best practice” within the field of addiction recovery. And like many other effective recovery tools, The Last Resort is taking this and other “best practices” to new levels of excellence.
