Austin & San Antonio Alcohol & Drug Rehab Center

The Right Step Hill Country residential drug rehab provides comprehensive, evidence-based treatment for substance use and co-occurring disorders for adults. Within a scenic, relaxed, private setting in the peaceful Texas Hill Country, addiction professionals, on-site psychiatric care and 24-hour nursing will help you build recovery skills and healthy lifestyle practices that promote long-term recovery. The Right Step Hill Country treatment center is located in Wimberley, halfway between Austin and San Antonio on a 30-acre campus featuring separate cottages for men and women, a swimming pool, fitness room, volleyball court and a sport court for basketball or tennis.

Specialized Treatment for Adults

Our Hill Country residential alcohol and drug rehab program is designed for adults struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. Our experienced treatment team identifies and addresses the underlying issues that have interfered with your ability to quit using drugs or alcohol. We focus on the positive skills learned if you’ve had previous treatment experiences and help you gain resilience and other essential recovery skills to propel you forward on your recovery journey.


At The Right Step Hill Country, the pace slows down. Sitting on the edge of the American Southwest, our rural Texas location outside of Wimberley removes you from the stressors of everyday life so you can focus on getting better. Many say our campus has a cozy, summer camp feeling to it. Group therapy and individual sessions take place all over campus in homey cabins. Rolling hills, oak and cedar trees and nature’s beauty invite everyday opportunities to regroup and reflect.


Clients live in rustic cabins that feel like home, not a treatment facility. Each cabin has its own personality and includes bedrooms, bathrooms, an inviting common area, comfortable furnishings and country decor representative of the area. Men and women are housed on opposite sides of the campus.

A Typical Day

Days at Hill Country addiction treatment center are full and engaging. Daily schedules and activities vary, but here’s a snapshot of what a typical day might look like:

Mornings – Clients have time in the morning before breakfast to use the gym. After the morning meal, we have meditation time and set goals for the day. The rest of the morning is filled with process groups, recovery education groups or specialized groups.

Afternoons – Lunch is served at noon. During the afternoons clients attend more small groups, yoga or go on a store run. Late afternoons usually include quiet time to work on assignments, Big Book study, 12-step meetings, and experiential groups where clients engage in mindfulness or relationship building activities as well as have time for the seasonal outdoor pool or gym.

Evenings – After dinner, clients typically participate in on or off-campus 12-step meetings, exercise and wrap-up groups where we reflect on the day.

An Empowering Approach to Prevent Relapse

At The Right Step treatment center, we know that addressing the underlying issues that fuel addiction is necessary in order to prevent relapse. We help you begin healing past trauma and get proper treatment for any co-occurring mental health disorders.  We also help you acquire healthier coping skills to replace destructive ones like substance abuse.

Customized Treatment Plans

Treatment begins with an in-depth assessment to identify the underlying and previously untreated parts of self or past events that have gotten in the way of your recovery. Based on this assessment, our clinicians create personalized treatment plans that include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Gender-specific and mixed gender process groups
  • Experiential therapy groups
  • Educational groups
  • 12-step meeting introduction
  • Coping skills group
  • Meditation and yoga
  • Intensive family program
  • A focus on emotional trauma, depression, anxiety, co-addictions (such as gambling and sex/love/relationship addiction), and other compulsive behaviors

Core Therapeutic Approaches

Some of the therapies and approaches we may use in your treatment plan include:

Family Therapy

One of the main differences between us and other drug rehab programs is our intensive focus on the family. We provide structured support for families, which includes a full day of treatment every Saturday focused on their experiences as well as aftercare not just for the client but also for the family.

Trauma-Based Therapies

Often, unresolved trauma and grief lie at the core of addictions, though these issues frequently get overlooked in traditional drug rehab programs. We utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and other trauma-based therapies to bring these issues to light so that they no longer fuel the relapse cycle.

Gender-Separate Residences and Groups

Men and women live on opposite sides of our campus. Some of our process groups and 12-step meetings include only members of the same sex. This provides an opportunity for clients to share difficult feelings they might not feel comfortable talking about in a mixed-gender environment.

Making Your Recovery a Reality

What’s getting in the way of your recovery? We’ll help you get to the root of your drug abuse so that you can move on to the next stage of your recovery. You have what it takes to beat this disease. We can help.

Dallas Alcohol & Drug Rehab Treatment Center

The Right Step Dallas Central offers a full continuum of alcohol/drug rehab and mental health care including inpatient detox, residential drug rehab, intensive outpatient care, a partial hospitalization program and aftercare. With convenient day and evening schedules, our intensive outpatient treatment program is ideal for individuals who work or attend college. The structured, supportive setting is an excellent solution for people who don’t require a higher level of care. It is also an ideal option for those in need of continuing support after completion of our inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program.

We provide 24-hour admissions, 7 days a week at our Dallas alcohol and drug rehab and have a full team of licensed clinicians. Treatment is based on education and process groups where you’ll address destructive behavior patterns, uncover your strengths and learn recovery skills in a safe, caring environment. Loved ones are involved in treatment so that the whole family can heal and move forward.


The Right Step Dallas/Ft. Worth treatment center, located in the city of Euless, is conveniently situated between major cities and is easily accessible to people out of the immediate area because of its proximity to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Residences and Treatment Center

Residences and treatment activities are housed in the same building. Our facilities are both comfortable and functional with cozy furnishings and wood flooring throughout, several rooms for group and individual therapy, common areas for socializing, quiet spaces for reflection and a large cafeteria for meals.

You’ll share same-sex residences with peers who have similar struggles and life circumstances. Bedrooms are semi-private with en suite bathrooms. You’ll have access to outdoor patio areas, basketball and volleyball courts, as well as a full-service gym with trainers.

Nutritious Meals

Meals are served in Café Diem, our dining area. A nutritionist approves all of our menus to make sure meals are both delicious and nutritious. In addition to our main entrees, the salad bar is open during meals.

A Typical Day

Schedules and activities at The Right Step Dallas/Fort Worth vary depending on the day and whether you’re in the women’s or men’s program, but here is what you might expect from a typical day in treatment.

Mornings – You’ll ease into the day with morning meditation, breakfast and chores. Community groups and process groups take place during late mornings.

Afternoons – A healthy lunch is served at our onsite café. The rest of the afternoon is filled with process groups and specialized groups like The Daring Way™, anger management and addiction education. You’ll also have time for fitness and treatment assignments and some days we’ll go on outings in the community.

Evenings – After dinner, evening activities usually include personal time, 12-step meetings onsite or off campus, community meetings, and activities like alumni speakers or movie night.

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program Highlights

Some features of our adult inpatient program include:

Gender-Separate Treatment – Our residences and Dallas drug rehab center are gender-separate. This attribute encourages you to focus on treatment and getting better without feeling inhibited or distracted by the opposite gender.

Individual and group therapy – You’ll receive one-on-one psychotherapy to focus on individual issues and medication needs and also attend therapy groups run by licensed clinicians. Groups are designed to help you process thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; develop interpersonal skills; and learn to develop recovery skills and an overall healthy approach to life.

Addiction specialists – We have the distinction of having a board certified addictionologist, board certified psychiatrist and anesthesiologist onsite. Our team includes two psychiatric advanced nurse practitioners, master’s level, licensed therapists and social workers. Many of our clinicians are trained in specialized therapies like dialectical behavior therapy as well as other approaches to treating mood disorders and other mental health issues.

Treatment for co-occurring mental health issues – We take a clinical approach to treatment with onsite therapists, doctors and highly trained clinicians who have experience working with a wide range of mental health issues. If needed, you’ll see our psychiatrist at least once a week and work with our dedicated psychiatric nurse practitioner who provides support for those with dual disorders.

Chronic Relapse Track –  We offer a specialized track that helps people prevent relapse before it happens. Clients learn what roadblocks have stood in the way of their sobriety and work with their treatment team to create a detailed aftercare plan that supports their long-term recovery.

Daring WayTMIntegrated into our treatment approach is best-selling author and renowned TED Talks speaker Dr. Brené Brown’s The Daring WayTM shame-resilience curriculum. Including recovery-enhancing exercises and tasks that address scarcity, comparison and shame, this approach teaches you to embrace vulnerability, become shame-resilient, and live life fully and authentically.

Rising StrongTM – Based on Dr. Brené Brown’s research and book “Rising Strong,” these groups build upon the work our clients do in The Daring WayTM shame-resilience groups. Clients learn that when we show up bravely and authentically, we may still stumble, and that’s this is okay. Groups offer ways to “get back up” and focus on lessons learned during setbacks.

Fitness –Our onsite fitness instructor will create an individualized fitness plan for you based on a comprehensive assessment that seeks to rebuild balance, stamina and physical health. Our facilities include an onsite gym and an outdoor sports court for basketball, tennis and volleyball matches.

Nutrition – Nutritional deficiencies are common among people recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. At The Right Step Dallas drug rehab, our experienced nutritionist works with a professional chef and full kitchen staff to create nourishing, delicious meals. Cuisine can also be tailored to special dietary requirements as needed.

Education groups – You’ll participate in groups that focus on a particular addiction or recovery topic or assignment and are designed to increase awareness of the disease of addiction and promote recovery and coping skills. Addiction is a chronic brain disease, and we believe informing yourself about the characteristics of any disease is an important step in managing it.

Aftercare – Our connection with you doesn’t end when you complete residential treatment. The Right Step addiction program offers weekly aftercare groups run by a licensed clinician, as well as an active alumni program to provide you with a supportive community of other people in recovery.

Family focus – Recognizing that families of those with addictions are also impacted, we work to heal both you and your loved ones. As clinically appropriate, you’ll engage in family therapy and your loved ones may attend family support groups.

Houston Alcohol & Drug Rehab Center

The Right Step Houston Central offers inpatient alcohol and drug rehab in a home-like setting. Our long-time, dedicated therapists are mainstays in the Houston recovery community. From inpatient detox to intensive outpatient care and aftercare, our staff is dedicated to helping individuals overcome addictions.

For those who don’t require residential care, our intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) provides a structured, supportive setting conducive to recovery. Our IOP provides an important next step in treatment for clients who have completed inpatient alcohol and drug rehab. Clients benefit from a number of therapeutic approaches that complement our core belief in 12-step principles.

Our experienced addiction and mental health professionals are specially trained to help you address underlying issues that contribute to addiction such as trauma and mental issues like mood disorders, depression and anxiety. Our multidisciplinary treatment team in Houston uses a structured program track, based on 12-step recovery principles and evidence-based models.

Highlights of our Houston alcohol and drug inpatient program include:

Specially trained addiction experts – Our Houston team includes a board certified psychiatrist, nurses, licensed clinicians and other addiction professionals. We have counselors who are trained in specialized therapies such as dialectical behavior therapy as well as other approaches for treating addiction, mood disorders and eating issues.

Group and individual counseling – You’ll get one-on-one time with a psychiatrist and participate in a number of therapy groups. Groups address topics such as spirituality, relapse prevention, 12 steps and more. We also offer family groups for your loved ones.

Empowering recovery approaches – Our approach is heavily grounded in positive psychology, which emphasizes your individual strengths and teaches you to draw upon them in recovery.

Motivational interviewing – Instead of traditional doctor-patient roles in therapy, this collaborative therapeutic approach includes you as an active decision-maker in the therapeutic process and draws upon your own wisdom for problem solving, goal setting and motivation for change.

Practicing recovery skills – You’ll learn that recovery can be fun and engaging with weekly outings to movies, parks or museums and recreational activities like basketball and softball. This gives you an opportunity to experience fun activities while sober with the guidance of addiction professionals.

Expressive therapies and holistic approaches – We help you explore underlying issues and find ways to express your thoughts and feelings beyond talk therapy. Approaches like music and art therapy provide creative ways of addressing issues. Activities like yoga and meditation offer opportunities to “get out of your head” and focus on the mind-body connection, and important aspect of healing.

Addiction education – During your stay at our inpatient rehab in Houston, you’ll participate in several educational classes on addiction — what fuels it, how it affects the body and mind, and how to manage it. As with any disease, the more informed you are about its causes and characteristics, the better you can manage it.

Aftercare focus – From the moment you enter our doors we are focused on your long-term recovery. You’ll build new, healthy coping skills to replace destructive ones that you can implement in your life after you leave. We bring in professionals from sober-housing facilities once a week to familiarize you with this post-treatment option and also provide information on our continuing care services.

A Typical Day at The Right Step Houston Inpatient Program

The day begins with meditation time followed by a leisurely breakfast planned by our nutritionist and prepared by our professional chefs. Mid-morning activities include groups with counselors, life skills training and guest speakers, followed by a healthy lunch.
Activities continue with lectures presented by counselors, doctors, nurses and outside professionals, as well as gender-specific groups led by our counseling staff. Sober outings to local area museums, parks and sporting events are the perfect ending to the afternoon.
After dinner, clients attend an onsite or offsite 12-step meeting, where they are encouraged to meet others in recovery and begin networking with peers who have been able to maintain their sobriety over time. Then clients return for some personal time before retiring for the evening.
