Faith-Based Addiction Treatment Center in Austin
Bible-Based Alcohol & Drug Rehab in Austin
Drug and alcohol addiction are personal to the person that it affects. Your substance abuse began due to emotions and traumas that have influenced your ability to respond to negative situations and emotions. Your addiction treatment program should be centered around supporting you in healing from your past in order to build a positive, new way of life in addiction recovery. When you come from Christian-based beliefs and values, there is a significant value that can come in your healing journey by being able to connect with your Christian faith and values. The Bible references many stories and examples of facing temptations and struggles while being presented with sins throughout day-to-day life. The Bible demonstrates that even with hardships within your life, there is an opportunity for redemption and salvation when you place your faith in Christian beliefs.
Choosing an alcohol or drug rehab within Recovery Unplugged will provide Austin residents with an opportunity to heal from their substance abuse within a treatment program that honors and respects their need for connection with their spirituality and faith. Our team will provide you with a supportive, inclusive environment that will offer you a comprehensive treatment program that incorporates Christain values and connection to help you heal from your drug and alcohol addiction within your body, mind, and spirit.

What Does the Bible Say About Addiction?
In the Bible, there are many passages that refer to the struggles of living with addiction, either directly or indirectly. The messages in the passage provide hope and inspiration to find your way in sobriety with the guidance of Christian beliefs and practices.
Corinthians 10:13: No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape that you may be able to endure it.
Ephesians 5:18-20: Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Peter 5:8: Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Peter 5:10: And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you

- Why Choose Recovery Unplugged?
Alcohol detox is recommended to be completed with the support and supervision of medical professionals and addiction counselors. Alcohol detox can create withdrawal symptoms that range in levels of severity and, in some cases, can cause significant and sometimes life-threatening withdrawal symptoms that should be monitored by trained professionals. Recovery Unplugged offers Austin residents a medical detox program that will ensure your safety and comfort while providing you with top-tier therapy and treatment methods that will ensure you successfully put your alcohol dependence in the past.
Alcohol Rehab: Inpatient vs Outpatient
The next step after completing an alcohol detox program is to begin to address your underlying causes of alcohol addiction within an alcohol rehab treatment program. Austin residents will have the option of choosing between an inpatient treatment program or an outpatient rehab program depending on their preference and levels of care needed. No matter which option you choose, you will be provided with a comprehensive treatment plan that incorporates evidence-based therapy methods that align with your Christian values and beliefs.
Patients that choose an inpatient treatment program will be able to reside within our recovery center to complete your individualized treatment program alongside other patients who are working towards the same goals of living in addiction recovery. Your days will be structured with a routine of individual therapy and group therapy sessions that will focus on healing from your alcohol addiction while developing the skills for sober living. Inpatient treatment programs can occur over a period of 30, 60, or 90 days depending on your specific needs for healing. If you opt to participate in an outpatient treatment program, either an intensive outpatient program or a partial hospitalization program, you will attend the treatment center for 3 to 6 hours a day to engage in therapy sessions and have the flexibility to return home each evening to be with your loved ones or maintain your commitments to work or school.
How Our Christian Drug Rehab Treatment Program Works
When you choose to heal from your alcohol and drug addiction within the recovery center at Recovery Unplugged, you will be provided with a whole-person continuum of care that focuses on healing from addiction within your body, mind, and spirit. Our Christian rehab program will incorporate spiritual practices and faith-based treatment methods alongside a variety of evidence-based therapy methods such as behavioral therapy, medical care, psychiatric support, 12-step programs, and music therapy. Your individualized treatment program will support you in healing from your past to develop a new foundation in life that fosters sober living and health.
Your drug detox program will vary depending on your history of substance abuse and specific drug of choice. The time you are in detox will typically last between three to fourteen days, depending on the severity of your substance use disorders. With the support of our licensed medical professionals and addiction therapists, you will be supported to safely remove the harmful toxins and influences of drug abuse from your system and begin to restore your body's functioning and health. As you heal from the physical dependence on drugs and alcohol, you will be supported in addressing the impacts on your mental health and overall well-being through a combination of behavioral therapy, evidence-based therapy, and music-assisted therapy.
Prescription Drug Detox
Prescription drug abuse typically begins after a person has been prescribed a medication and begins misusing it to cope with underlying emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Due to the highly addictive components of some prescription drugs, including opioid drugs or benzodiazepines, many can fall into a drug dependence on these medications. As you embark on your prescription drug detox, your length of time in drug detox will depend on the extent and history of your substance abuse. Medical detox will provide you with the guidance and supervision you need to safely and successfully overcome physical dependence on prescription drugs. Prescription drug detox will often incorporate a slow tapering-off period that will ensure your physical health and comfort remain intact throughout your detox process.
Drug Rehab: Inpatient vs. Outpatient
Similar to alcohol rehab, there are benefits for individuals entering into an inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab program. Austin residents that are ready to address their drug addiction within the recovery center at Recovery Unplugged can choose between inpatient or outpatient rehab.
Inpatient rehab is best suited for individuals who:
- Require a more intensive structured program that offers 24/7 access to addiction counselors and medical professionals
- Individuals that have been living with a long-term or severe alcohol or drug addiction
- Have a lack of support at home that will be able to offer you a sober, safe environment to heal from your alcohol or drug addiction
- Require support from a dual diagnosis treatment program that will support any co-occurring mental health conditions or physical health conditions that require supervision from medical professionals
Outpatient rehab is an ideal option for individuals who:
- Have a strong support system at home that can offer a safe, sober environment for you to remain focused on your goals of living in addiction recovery
- Have you completed an inpatient rehab and want additional support as you transition back into your home environment
- Have successfully completed a detox program and overcome any presenting withdrawal symptoms
Prescription Drug Rehab
Recovery Unplugged offers Austin residents that are living with a prescription drug addiction an addiction treatment program that is individualized to meet their level of needs and reach their goals for addiction recovery. Each prescription drug has a different impact depending on the substance and will require varying levels of care to support you in safely overcoming the physical dependence while providing you with psychological care and treatment to treat any co-occurring disorders and underlying emotions that have influenced your addictive behaviors.
What To Expect During Treatment
When you arrive at our recovery center, you will be met by our team of medical staff, addiction counselors, and admission staff, that will show you around our treatment facility and complete the initial admission paperwork. After you finish your initial meeting and intake process, you will be provided with a tour of our treatment facility and supported in feeling comfortable within your new surroundings. Throughout your treatment program, you will attend various therapy sessions and social events within the recovery center and connect with other patients while enjoying the onsite amenities. Our team provides the highest levels of care to make patients feel at home and comfortable throughout their healing journey.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a form of addiction treatment that supports patients that are preparing to overcome an opioid addiction or alcohol addiction. Due to the highly addictive components of these substances, there can be significant or severe withdrawal symptoms that require the support of medical interventions to maintain your safety and comfort. Patients will be provided with medications that work to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms to a mild or moderate level and significantly decrease any presenting cravings for drugs and alcohol. A MAT program allows patients to safely and comfortably overcome their physical dependence on drugs and alcohol.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a commonly used method of addiction therapy as it supports patients in identifying the patterns of thinking, patterns of self-destructive behaviors, and lack of emotional regulation that has influenced their addictive behaviors. CBT supports patients in learning methods to change their thinking and behaviors to foster life in addiction recovery.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a form of addiction therapy that is based on models of CBT. Patients in a DBT therapy session will learn how to develop healthy coping skills to overcome stress and triggers. DBT supports individuals in learning interpersonal skills and tools for emotional regulation and distress tolerance to have healthy, supportive relationships.
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) is a form of treatment that supports patients in identifying how their perceptions of an event or interaction can influence their emotions and responses. As you move through an REBT therapy session, you will be able to recognize your irrational beliefs that influence your perceptions and develop the tools to effectively manage your emotions in the future in a healthy, rational way to overcome any potential triggers or stress.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Individuals living with a substance use disorder often are living with a co-occurring mental health disorder or behavioral health concern that impacts one another. A dual diagnosis treatment program will support patients in learning how their substance abuse has impacted the symptoms of their co-occurring disorder while also exploring how their use of substances was used to self-medicate to treat the presenting symptoms of their co-occurring disorder. Throughout a dual diagnosis treatment program, you will overcome your drug and alcohol addiction by addressing the root causes of addiction while developing healthy, natural treatments for your co-occurring mental health disorder or behavioral health concern.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of trauma therapy that supports patients in processing traumatic memories to help relieve the severe reactions or responses that occur when thoughts of the traumatic memory occur. Patients will focus on external stimuli of tapping, tones, or eye movements while, at the same time, begin processing the traumatic event with the support of a trauma therapist. As you engage in a dual awareness state, you will be able to create new emotional responses and associations to the memory that help to reduce the severe responses to the traumatic memory.
Even after you complete your addiction treatment program and return home, life will still happen, where there will be ups and downs. As you are presented with temptations and triggers, it is essential that you develop the tools and coping skills for relapse prevention to ensure you are able to remain on the road to recovery. Patients will be supported with developing a relapse prevention plan and tools for self-regulation and mindfulness that will foster life in sober living.
Life Skills Training
While you are in the depths of alcohol or drug addiction, many individuals will often miss the opportunity to develop essential life skills that support a healthy, balanced lifestyle. As you heal from addiction, your treatment program will incorporate opportunities for you to gain knowledge and training on daily, essential life skills.
Living with active alcohol or drug addiction often becomes the center of a person's life, leaving many individuals to miss out on the life experiences of being in the workforce and holding down long-term, gainful employment. During your drug or alcohol treatment program, you will be supported with vocational training that will support you in obtaining employment after you complete your treatment program. Patients will learn skills such as interviewing, resume building, time management, and organizational skills that will ensure they find a job that they enjoy and maintain that job for the long term.
Group therapy is a common form of treatment process within drug or alcohol rehab that will bring together a group of patients to engage in a facilitated session by an addiction counselor. Patients will be encouraged to engage in conversation with each other, which offers an opportunity to share experiences and emotions through guided topics. Group therapy provides patients with a sense of comfort and support by sharing similar feelings and memories that help individuals to feel less alone in their healing journey. Patients are able to develop positive social skills and communication, which often facilitates positive, pro-social interactions with one another.
Experiential therapy offers a hands-on approach to addiction treatment that invites patients to engage in various activities ( music, arts and crafts, role-playing, physical activity, etc.) that will provide an opportunity for patients to place a focus on the activity at hand while processing emotions. As you engage in the activity, patients are able to safely release negative emotions, including shame, anger, or distressing emotions, in a safe, healthy manner.
One-on-one therapy is a method of treatment where a patient and therapist meet to discuss your emotions, personal history with substance abuse, and challenges that you experience. Individual therapy invites patients to safely move through the painful emotions and memories and begin moving towards achieving the goals for addiction recovery and treatment that you identify and set.
Addiction is a disease that impacts substance abusers and their family members. Family therapy is designed to support you and your loved one's process of the difficult memories and conflicts that have arisen in the past as a result of your substance abuse. Family therapy allows patients and their loved ones an opportunity to develop healthy communication skills, set and maintain appropriate boundaries with one another, and heal from the past distresses that occurred during their active addiction.
Trauma-informed therapy sessions are designed to support patients who have a history of trauma that has impacted their ability to manage negative situations and emotions. Trauma-informed therapy practices support patients in addressing their history of trauma without triggering or re-traumatizing the patient. Patients will be supported in processing their emotions and traumas in a safe, secure environment that values and fosters their need for a patient-led conversation that allows them to discuss their emotions at a pact that is comfortable and safe for them.
Physical fitness is incorporated into each patient's treatment plan for the many ways it supports improving a person's physical, emotional, and mental health. A healthy life in addiction recovery will include a daily routine of physical fitness to help maintain a life of sober living. Physical exercise has been shown to provide patients with increased self-esteem, increased sleep quality, improved mood, and emotional state, increased energy levels, and strengthened immune systems.
Many individuals entering into addiction treatment will often ask how they will have fun living in sobriety. Off-site activities provide patients with an opportunity to explore different activities and places to go that will provide healthy, sober fun. Off-site activities can include attending local events, sports events, activities in nature, or going out to restaurants or churches together.
12-Step Rehab in Austin
Many addiction treatment centers will invite patients to engage in 12-step programs such as alcoholics anonymous or narcotics anonymous that incorporate addiction treatment and faith-based guidelines. 12-step programs provide patients with the opportunity to connect with one another to share experiences in active addiction and addiction recovery to provide messages of strength, hope, and inspiration as you connect as a group on the basis of healing from addiction.
Your pet is a part of your family and has been there throughout the highs and lows of your addiction. When you are considering entering into inpatient rehab, there may be concerns about what you will do with your cat or dog while you are away. At Recovery Unplugged, we want to provide an opportunity for patients to bring their furry loved ones with them as they embark on the life-changing journey of addiction recovery. Pets are permitted as long as you bring proper enclosures with you, food and accessories that they require, and take the proper steps to clean up after them while they are within our recovery center. Your pets provide unconditional love and support, and our team wants to foster those relationships and break down any barriers to your entry into addiction treatment.
DUI and Drug Court Help
Substance abuse creates an increased risk for criminal involvement, including arrests, drug-related offenses or charges, and convictions for DUIs. If you don't have a history of violent offenses or it is your first offense, an addiction treatment program will offer you the support you need that will help you have long-term success in your future. Within our recovery center, we offer patients the following services:
- Treatment placement and planning
- Alternative sentencing facilitation
- Downward departure facilitation
- Evaluations of substance abuse
- Marchman Act implementation and utilization
- Assessments in custody or out of custody
When you have a loved one that is living with an active drug or alcohol addiction and are concerned for their well-being, it can be hard to know the right steps to take to provide them with the support that they need to access addiction treatment. Our team at Recovery Unplugged will help to connect you to professional intervention services that will support you in implementing an intervention for your loved ones. Having the support of an interventionist will give you guidance and support in finding an appropriate treatment program and the ability to mediate a conversation if your loved ones have an intense emotional reaction.
Music-Assisted Treatment for Addiction
Recovery Unplugged offers patients a unique, exclusive approach to addiction treatment through our music-assisted treatment programs. Whether you have a background in music or this is a new venture for you, we offer music therapy programs that will suit your needs and preference for engagement. We strongly believe that music has the ability to heal individuals from within and provide opportunities to engage in creative expression and musical expression that will help you heal from your history of addiction and learn healthy ways to express and process your feelings.
Virtual (Telehealth) Addiction Treatment
Austin residents live busy lifestyles, and there may be some individuals that are unable to commit to entering an addiction treatment center for inpatient rehab but are dedicated to beginning the healing process of addiction treatment. There are others who may have concerns about entering into a group living community of inpatient rehab due to immunocompromised diseases or physical health concerns. Virtual addiction treatment offers patients an opportunity to heal from their drug and alcohol addiction within the comfort of their homes. Patients will engage in the same effective evidence-based therapy methods over the phone or virtually.
