Our residents come from all over the United States as well as internationally.
What are the major benefits of your program?
There are many benefits to the Spearhead Lodge program. Our residents will be immersed in and complete all 12 Steps of recovery in a beautiful setting in North Austin. They will participate in a highly structured program that teaches integrity, discipline, spiritual practices, and valuable life skills that are seldom addressed in a treatment setting. Our residents will participate in physical exercise and yoga, learn healthy eating habits, and receive motivational talks and proactive dialogue as opposed to lectures.

What are the qualifications of your staff?
All members of the Spearhead Lodge staff are in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction, and have adopted the way of living taught in the Spearhead Lodge program. We teach from practical experience, not theory or opinion. Each resident will work with licensed counselors on a daily basis. Our recovery center also has relationships with fine doctors if medical needs arise during a residents’ stay.
