The Last Resort
- A Special Place Where Men Recover
A message from our Founders:
Welcome! If drugs or alcohol have you seeking help for a loved one or for yourself we understand; but what’s more important,
we have a message of hope.
The Last Resort was founded especially for men who’ve not been successful with, or are seeking an alternative to, traditional treatment. Men come to us in need of recovery – and that’s what we’re dedicated to providing.
At The Last Resort we’ve gathered a dedicated and professional team to design an evidence-based program that gives men the hands-on experience of living a recovered life one day at a time. Our approach supports a new Recovery Model that has excited a growing number of addiction professionals as well as recovered men and women from around the country. Our beautiful Central Texas ranch is a retreat-like setting that encourages healing while our affordable pricing often proves less costly than traditional treatment.
Please take a moment to read who we are and what we do. We’re committed to the men we serve and to the families that love them. We know they can be restored to the sons and fathers they once were and need to be again.

The Last Resort stands at the forefront of an emerging national revolution that’s “re-thinking” ways to help men struggling with alcohol and drug addictions. Nationally, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment along with growing grass-roots support from recovered addicts and professionals around the country are encouraging a shift away from a crisis-oriented approach to care based on TREATMENT toward a newer and more effective long-term approach grounded in RECOVERY.

In addition to embracing the new recovery paradigm, The Last Resort is working equally hard to renew the time-tested model of recovery that has successfully helped generations of alcoholics and addicts find a full and fulfilling recovery.
The original program of action, as written in the Big Book of Alcoholics, forms the bedrock on which our program is built.
But sadly, over the years, some things have happened in recovery circles to weaken the program as it was first written and practiced. A.A. has always cherished the rights of individuals to “pick and choose” what they are willing to do to recover. It has carefully avoided trying to impose its life-changing program onto the newcomer. When the Big Book introduces the 12 Steps it states very clearly they “… are suggested as a program of recovery.” Human nature being what it is and many treatment programs opting for a “softer easier way,” the original, strong program has been greatly watered down over the years.

Austin usually leads the list of cities people want to visit and live in. Now we’re doing our best to make it the city men most want to come to for recovery. Austin is an oasis in the middle of Texas where ties are frowned upon and music and culture abound. The young are especially drawn here and that’s not without reason: READ MORE
