Always Available

The first step to getting help is getting in touch. Addiction doesn’t maintain 9–5 office hours, so neither do we. We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information, a free assessment, or to schedule a tour, contact San Antonio Recovery Center today at 866.957.7885 or reach out to us online.

It’s crucial that you or your loved one gets help as soon as possible. Early intervention can be helpful in promoting long-term positive outcomes. It’s not necessary to hit “rock bottom” before beginning treatment. Instead, you can start treatment as soon as you’re ready.


Your privacy is important to us. We know that addiction recovery can be a tough subject to broach. Because of this, we strictly maintain your confidentiality from the time of the initial call through the entire treatment process. During individual therapy sessions, you’ll be in a safe space where you can work through deeply personal issues with the help of a therapist. And in group therapy sessions, we ensure that everything that is discussed is kept private.


To ensure your safety, comfort, and successful recovery, we are licensed by and in compliance with all Texas Department of State Health Services standards.


We understand that addiction recovery takes a village. With your permission, we communicate with your primary care physician, medical specialists, counselors, and agencies in your community. These professionals can help you with your continued recovery once you finish with inpatient addiction treatment.

By connecting our patients with community resources, we can help them rebuild their lives. Addiction can impact your finances, relationships, and even your employment or housing. In recovery, you’ll have the support you need to become your happiest, healthiest self. We’ll help you break the cycle of addiction so you can experience a fuller life.

Involved With Your Family

Few of us get better by ourselves. Addiction can be isolating. It can feel as though no one else understands your struggles and that you are on your own as you work to recover. While group therapy can provide the support of other individuals who have faced similar challenges, for many, having the encouragement of loved ones is a vital part of healing. That’s why, when appropriate, we involve our patients’ family members in family therapy and education. Your loved ones will learn more about addiction and will discover how to support you without enabling destructive behaviors.

In family therapy, you’ll be able to work through challenging issues in a safe, supportive environment with the help of an experienced therapist. Everyone needs the support and involvement of loved ones. This treatment approach will help both you and your family to heal together.

Our Programs

We offer a range of programs to meet the needs of each of our patients. Whether you need medical and emotional support during detox or are ready to start rebuilding your life while participating in outpatient treatment, we can help. Our addiction treatment programs in San Antonio include:

  • Medical detox
  • Residential treatment
  • Partial hospitalization programs
  • Intensive outpatient treatment
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Aftercare

We develop individualized treatment plans for every patient in our care to address their unique needs and goals.

As we create your personalized treatment plan, we will determine which therapy will help you build the healthy coping skills you’ll need for long-term recovery. For example, individuals who have been through trauma in the past, such as abuse, violence, natural disaster, or loss might benefit from EMDR therapy. Those who struggle with depression and anxiety along with substance abuse issues can find new ways to approach their thoughts and emotions through cognitive behavioral therapy. And every one of our patients spends time in individual therapy with an experienced therapist. During these sessions, patients can work through the challenging personal issues that may have contributed to substance abuse in the past.

Addiction Treatment Therapies

Group therapy sessions based on the 12-step philosophy are the cornerstone of treatment at San Antonio Recovery Center. These sessions can help patients build a network of support with others in recovery and can help them build a strong foundation for long-term, sustainable recovery. Patients can participate in 12-step sessions virtually anywhere at no cost, which can be an important resource as they transition back into everyday life. 

Some of the other therapies we offer in our San Antonio treatment center include:

  • Animal-assisted therapy Our support dog Lacy was once homeless and struggled to survive on the streets. However, with support, treatment, and compassionate care, she has recovered and now helps others who are struggling heal as well.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy – This evidence-based therapy involves learning how to change thought patterns that might have previously led to negative behaviors.
  • Holistic therapy – Therapies that involve the mind and body can help patients develop healthy coping skills and strategies. Additionally, patients can learn how to process their emotions in a positive way.
  • EMDR – Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is a therapeutic modality that can help patients work through past trauma with the help of a trained therapist.
  • Medication-assisted treatment – No medications can cure addiction. However, certain FDA-approved medications can curb cravings and relieve withdrawal symptoms, especially for those who struggle with opioids and alcohol. Patients are able to focus on treatment when they feel relief from physical discomfort.
  • Recreational therapy – Participating in activities such as painting, making music, gardening, playing sports, or hiking can offer opportunities for socializing and can help patients build life skills.
