Drug Detox Program

Our medical staff at Recovery Unplugged can make the withdrawal process much easier through medication-assisted treatment and emotional support.

How Much Does Rehab Cost in Austin?

The cost of rehab in Austin, Texas will vary from person to person. Factors that can affect the costs of treatment include the length of the program, type of medications needed, location of the treatment center, type of rehab program, and addiction therapies needed. Insurance companies cover mental health treatment, which includes substance abuse. Your insurance plan may cover some or all of your drug and alcohol rehab needs. However, if you do not have health insurance, there are several ways to help pay for addiction treatment. Recovery Unplugged can help connect you with assistance programs and scholarships, and they will customize a program that fits your budget.

How Long Is Detox?

How long drug and alcohol detox will last will vary depending on the person and type of substance abuse. Withdrawals can start within a few hours after the last dose or drink and last for about a week. Sometimes, individuals will experience Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS), which causes mild, lingering withdrawal symptoms for weeks or months. However, PAWS can be managed with medication-assisted treatment. Several factors may determine how long drug detox may take, including:

  • Which substance was being abused
  • Length of addiction
  • Severity of addiction
  • Presence of co-occurring mental or physical disorders
  • Polysubstance abuse
  • Amount and frequency of substance abuse

How Long Is Rehab?

Drug and alcohol rehab will also vary in length depending on several factors, similar to drug detox. Factors that will lengthen rehab programs include co-occurring disorders, motivation, the severity of addiction, length of addiction, and the type of substances that are being used. Rehab programs can last anywhere from 10 to 90 days but can be longer. The most common addiction treatment program lengths are 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days which can consist of several levels of care. Addiction recovery is a life-long journey, and the work continues long after you have completed your program. Aftercare and alumni programs can help you keep active in your addiction recovery efforts.

30-Day Rehab

Many individuals begin their recovery journey with short-term rehab or rehab that lasts 30 days or less. These treatment programs are better suited for those with mild addictions but can also be a great way to jump-start your recovery programs. Inpatient 30-day rehab provides the drug and alcohol-free environment needed to immerse yourself and refocus on your recovery. It is important to continue treatment through outpatient treatment or aftercare programs.

Long-Term Rehab

For those with moderate to severe addictions, long-term rehab programs are necessary to allow enough time and a number of treatments needed to break negative behaviors and underlying causes of addiction. 60 to 90-day programs are also a good fit for those with co-occurring disorders who need more time to treat mental health issues. Addiction treatment programs can be entirely made up of inpatient treatment or can be broken up among several levels of care. Both short-term and long-term rehab at Recovery Unplugged in Austin includes many of the same evidence-based treatments and music-assisted treatment.

Additional Therapies & Addiction Treatments Available

Recovery Unplugged provides a large array of addiction therapies and services which allows us to create customized treatment plans to fit any type of addiction and personal needs. Our treatment plans are designed to treat underlying co-occurring disorders through dual diagnosis treatment, break unhealthy behaviors and thought patterns through individual therapy, and teach new coping skills and relapse prevention through group therapy. We also include several other services, such as drug court assistance and life skills training.

Does My Insurance Have Coverage for Rehab?

A federal law enacted in 2008 requires health insurance companies to cover mental health conditions, which includes drug and alcohol rehab therapies. Your insurance plan may cover part or all of your rehab costs, including drug and alcohol detox, behavioral therapies, and medication-assisted treatment. Recovery Unplugged is in network with most major insurance companies, and we can verify your insurance benefits, communicate if there are any deductibles, and help you understand what is and is not covered under your plan. Remember that rehab is an investment in yourself and your future.


Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, is used throughout the full continuum of care. MAT is especially essential in drug and alcohol detox as most withdrawals and cravings are managed with the use of FDA-approved medications. Medication Assisted Treatment is also beneficial in dual diagnosis treatment in treating mental health disorders like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, just to name a few. It can also be used in long-term rehab with medications that block the euphoric effects of substances or by making you ill if you ingest addictive substances, which can be useful in relapse prevention.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is often used in our treatment programs at Recovery Unplugged. It is a type of individual therapy used to identify negative thought patterns that lead to anxiety and depression, which are common co-occurring disorders, and replace them with positive ones. CBT can help improve emotional regulation and find healthier ways to cope with negative thoughts and emotions instead of using alcohol or drugs.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. It is a valuable tool in dual diagnosis treatment to treat several mental health disorders in addition to drug and alcohol addiction. DBT aims to teach mindfulness, interpersonal efficacy, distress acceptance, and emotional management as a way to stop using alcohol and drugs. It can help individuals live in the moment and live a life they feel good about. DBT also places focus on changing the individual's behavior and surroundings to make recovery easier, including removing triggers, such as paraphernalia and unhealthy relationships, from their lives.

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy

REBT or Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy also falls under the cognitive behavioral therapy umbrella. It helps individuals how irrational thought patterns play a major role in their addiction. It can help redirect harmful thoughts to rational ones. It can be an important tool in dual diagnosis treatment because it is beneficial for treating underlying co-occurring mental health disorders. REBT is effective in treating substance abuse when addiction stems from using drugs and alcohol as a way to self-medicate negative emotions.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Many co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and bipolar disorder, are commonly found alongside substance abuse. Either individuals use substance abuse as a way to self-medicate mental illness symptoms, or their addiction has caused mental health disorders. In either case, co-occurring disorders need to be treated simultaneously with addiction through dual diagnosis treatment in order to help someone successfully recover long-term. Recovery Unplugged is also a mental health institute with programs aimed at healing mental illness. We use one-on-one therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, and our music-assisted treatment program to treat underlying causes of addiction.


Trauma often causes individuals to use drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with negative emotions and memories. At Recovery Unplugged, EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is one of the many ways that we help our clients heal from their trauma. A trained therapist will guide you through a series of bilateral (side-to-side) eye movements while recalling traumatic experiences with an aim to change how the brain stores these memories until they no longer mentally or physically affect you.

Relapse Prevention

At Recovery Unplugged, part of your addiction treatment plan will include relapse prevention planning which will basically be a blueprint on how you will maintain sobriety outside of our treatment center. Our clinicians will work with you to create a relapse prevention plan where you will learn new coping skills, identify relapse triggers, recognize relapse signs and symptoms, and develop a plan to deal with an impending relapse or what to do if a relapse happens. Our commitment to you and your recovery does not end once you have graduated. We offer aftercare programs and alumni programs in an attempt to help you keep active in your addiction recovery.

Life Skills Training

Part of our services and group therapy at Recovery Unplugged include life skills training. Drug addiction can cause you to miss out on important life skill learning opportunities such as cooking, personal health and hygiene, social skills, cleaning, and managing your budget. We will teach you several of these important life skills which are essential to independent living and overall successful recovery.

Vocational Training

Part of our commitment to you and set you on the path to success is helping you get a stable job once you leave our addiction program. Having employment can improve self-esteem, provide accountability, and support independent living, all of which are important aspects of relapse prevention. Our vocational training will include resume-building skills, self-management skills, and interviewing skills.

Group Therapy

Group therapy and support groups are major cornerstones of all addiction treatment programs. Group therapy is led by one or more therapists or psychologists who will guide the group through certain topics or themes. These groups can be a great opportunity to discuss several ups and downs of recovery, learn from others who have gone through similar situations, and provide mutual support. Group therapy provides an opportunity to connect with others who are going through the same journey as you and be able to form lasting friendships and support long after your time at Recovery Unplugged. It can be a great way to learn and practice new social skills, get advice or a new perspective from others, and reduce loneliness.

Experiential Therapy

Not every person will be able to access all their emotions and issues through talk therapy in a traditional setting. Experiential therapy aims to help individuals access their emotions and work through their past experiences through active forms of therapy such as creating art, playing music, interacting with animals, and other fun, recreational activities. Through these experiences, they can deal with difficult or painful memories in a way that they could not access only through talk therapy.

One-on-One Therapy

Also known as individual therapy, one-on-one therapy encompasses the majority of inpatient and outpatient treatment plans. By meeting with your primary psychotherapist, you can discuss and work through the most intense parts of addiction. Your therapist will guide you through various psychotherapies and provide tips, tools, and coping strategies to help you deal with emotions and triggers in a healthier manner.

Family Therapy

Family programs can help mend and heal relationships that were affected by your addiction. With the help of a therapist, you and your loved ones can discuss intense feelings, problematic behaviors, and painful memories through better communication. These sessions are also important for breaking codependent and enabling behaviors, so your loved ones can better support your sobriety.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

Our therapists at Recovery Unplugged in Austin are trauma-informed, meaning they are aware of how addiction treatment may trigger past traumatic experiences, especially dealing with medical care and authority figures. Our trauma-informed staff are sensitive to these triggers and will ensure each patient feels safe by:

  • Using collaboration, trust, and empowerment
  • Being aware of signs of trauma and avoiding re-traumatization
  • Truthfully answer all questions
  • Use open decision-making with clients

Physical Fitness

Recovery Unplugged incorporates exercise and physical fitness into our treatment plans. Exercise can be an important tool in long-term recovery as a way to reduce stress, increase self-confidence, keep your body healthy, and improve mental health. Daily exercise routines can help keep your mind busy and away from cravings and well as add structure to your life. We offer gym access, recreational activities, and a volleyball court at our Austin, Texas location.

Off-Site Activities

Drug and alcohol addiction treatment is hard work and can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Just like you need time off to decompress from a job or school, you also need that in addiction recovery. We offer various off-site activities that will get you out of the rehab center to get your mind off addiction treatment, learn new things, see new sights, and learn how to have fun without drugs and alcohol. This is also a great way to start experiencing and interacting with the real world in your newfound sobriety.

12-Step Rehab in Austin

Our recovery programs at Recovery Unplugged incorporate 12-step programs, which have helped many people gain and remain sober for decades. Support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous can be important tools for support and accountability after you complete your drug and alcohol rehab program. We can connect you with 12-step programs in Austin and throughout the rest of the U.S.

LGBTQ+ Friendly Rehab

We are aware of the unique challenges and needs people in the LGBTQ+ community face. The LGBTQ+ community faces higher rates of mental health and substance use disorders than the general population due to stigmas, trauma, and difficulties within the healthcare system. Providing a fully inclusive environment where we want everyone to feel seen, accepted, and safe is a priority to us. We provide specialty groups and therapies aimed at addressing issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community and will not tolerate any discrimination.

Pet-Friendly Rehab

We are a pet-friendly rehab that invites you to bring your non-aggressive animals with you. We understand the barriers many pet owners face when it comes to getting proper addiction treatment and will make accommodations to allow your pets to come with you. However, you will be fully responsible for them, including bringing enclosures if necessary, feeding them, cleaning after them, ensuring their safety, and keeping them supervised and well-behaved. Pets must be up to date on vaccines and shots.

DUI and Drug Court Help

Alcohol and drug use can lead to legal issues. Our expert court liaison service at Recovery Unplugged helps you navigate the process of DUI and drug court-mandated treatment by ensuring you are getting the treatment required and that you are compliant with the terms of their agreement. Part of the services includes diverting you into a treatment program instead of incarceration if you are a first-time drug offender with a non-violent crime. Drug rehab can get you the help you need to regain control of your life and avoid reoffending.

Intervention Services

Individuals with drug or alcohol abuse disorders often have difficulty admitting they have a problem and seeing all the issues their substance abuse is causing. An intervention with the help of loved ones and a professional intervention specialist can help you get through to them. We can help you stage an intervention with a specialist who will keep the discussion on track, serve as a mediator, and provide factual information. They can ensure everyone keeps their emotions in check and help with the logistics of entering one of our rehab programs.

Music-Assisted Treatment Therapy for Addiction

You will only find our music-assisted treatment program at Recovery Unplugged. Our holistic program is incorporated into all levels of care to help clients access and work through deep emotions and issues they may not have been able to before. Music is both physiologically and psychologically therapeutic. Part of our music-assisted program include:

  • Creating music
  • Listening to your favorite music
  • Performing music at open-mic sessions
  • Creative writing exercises like poetry and songwriting
  • Access to fully equipped music spaces to create and record music
  • Performances by alumni
  • Music-focused group therapy
  • Creating personalized playlists with emotionally significant songs

Our music-assisted treatment programs can help treat depression, anxiety, emotional barriers, chronic pain, and mood elevation. The program has helped many find a way through addiction treatment and therapy that corresponded better to them than traditional addiction methods that did not work for them in the past. You do not need to be musically talented in any way to participate in our program.

Virtual (Telehealth) Addiction Treatment

Recovery Unplugged's virtual addiction treatment program is covered by many insurance plans. Virtual rehab eliminates many barriers that some individuals have to addiction treatment such as social phobias, health issues, or dependents at home. This is also a great way for those in rural areas to have more access to specialized rehab programs or for others who do not have reliable transportation. Our flexible online treatments are done through a discreet, secure web-based portal that can be accessed anywhere in the world.
