Texas’ Leading Adult Residential Addiction Treatment Program

Starlite Recovery Center helps men and women struggling with addiction and mental health disorders build a strong foundation for long-term recovery. Located in the heart of Texas, Starlite is the leading provider of behavioral health and substance use disorder treatment for adults ages 18 and over.

Effective, Evidence-Based Treatment

As Texas’ leading drug and alcohol treatment center, Starlite provides a variety of evidence-based treatment protocols that are proven effective.  This includes individual and group therapy, facilitated by a staff of trained, caring professionals. And because addiction is a disease that affects every member of a client’s family, we also provide family counseling to help in the recovery process.

Medically-Supervised Detox

Upon admission, clients enter Starlite’s detox program, which is both safe and effective in removing the harmful substances which have contributed to addiction. Under our highly trained medical staff’s supervision, clients complete the process of withdrawal with minimal discomfort and risk. Our rehab program uses only the most effective detox protocols while providing 24/7 nursing staff, daily physician visits, and on-call physician coverage in order to preserve our clients’ safety. Clients are welcome to attend programming during the day so as to jumpstart the healing and recovery process.

Residential Program

After successfully completing detox, clients are able to move to the residential rehab program. Situated on 55 peaceful acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, clients work closely with counselors and technicians and receive ongoing support as they work towards achieving life-long recovery. Starlite’s holistic approach to treatment includes:

  • Life skills groups
  • Specific theme groups
  • Participation in a Twelve Step group
  • Twelve Step, or “Big Book” Study
  • Ropes course with rock wall and zip line
  • Equine-assisted therapy
  • On-site certified personal trainer
  • Fully-equipped workout facility, miniature golf, wilderness outings, nature trails
  • On-site yoga classes*
  • Acupuncture*

The comprehensive treatment programs at Starlite were able to help my husband find true sobriety and peace with his inner self. I can't recommend the treatment programs enough!
