Our Approach

EXTENDED CARE FOR YOUNG ADULTS IN THE HEART OF AUSTIN

Extended Care Program

Our extended care program offers uniquely structured services which enrich the experience of our clients and ensure adequate personal attention to each client’s needs.

Unique features of our extended care program include:

Young Adult Specific Programming
Young adults recovery differently. At Spearhead Lodge, we understand the unique challenges facing the young adult entering recovery. Our curriculum is structured to address the needs of this important population,

Gender Specific Program
We understand that gender specific programming is essential to the early recovery process. Our gender separate program makes sure that clients have a safe, supportive environment where men and women can focus on their recovery and not be distracted.

High Staff-to-Client Ratio
We limit the number of clients in our program so that each will have a high-quality, deeply beneficial experience. By having an ample staff, we create a healthy atmosphere of accountability which has proven to be very effective. The fact that our staff brings actual life experience to the process of recovery is a plus factor for enhanced rapport and understanding of our clients.

Entertaining and Revitalizing Outings
Clients appreciate the location of Spearhead Lodge in the beautiful Hill Country near Austin, Texas. We take advantage of both our peaceful countryside and proximity to the city for planning different types of outings for our clients, from nature-centered to cultural events.

Affiliation with Medical Professionals
Our Center has established relationships with medical doctors, dentists and psychiatrists, all of whom are available should their services be required by a client.

A Meaningful Life Curriculum
Each client’s stay is filled with enlightening and down-to-earth learning that truly changes lives. Engaging dialogue and lively discussion are our preferred method of instruction. There are no lectures to endure. We use a tested, personalized approach to teach life skills necessary for an adult to function effectively in today’s society.
