Extended Care for Young Adults in the Heart of Austin
As research consistently shows, there is a positive correlation between length of treatment and positive outcomes. For this reason, the minimum stay at Spearhead Lodge is 90 days. We strongly believe our approach sets a stronger foundation for clients from the beginning.
In addition, we offer a blend of 12-Step facilitation and cognitive behavioral therapy to improve client outcomes. If relapse is part of a client’s recovery, we can help them learn ways to navigate differently and avoid setbacks for a lifetime of sobriety. Compared to other centers, our relapse prevention techniques focus less on ways to identify “triggers” or “warning signs” of relapse, as these can often be difficult for individuals to recognize in themselves.
As an alternative, we focus on measurable metrics for participating in recovery. This method allows us to start from a strengths-based perspective, rather than an exclusive focus on what someone may be doing wrong. We find this approach to be much more effective with young adults. Instead of saying what not to do or things to be afraid of, we focus on what to do and what accomplishments our clients can be proud of. With our methods, patients can break out of a negative mindset and begin experiencing the benefits of positive self-esteem.
