At Omega Recovery, Dr. Kardaras and our clinical team have created a new, better, and more effective way for people to not only get sober, but to stay sober. Traditional treatment programs put the struggling addict in an artificial treatment bubble where it’s relatively easy to stay sober, but inevitably when that client leaves treatment, they are unprepared to deal with the stress of everyday life.
In Omega Recovery Treatment Houses, clients get 30 hours of clinical treatment in a large, beautiful, secure home right in the community! They spend 5 days a week working with some of the best therapists in Austin, attend life skills groups, receive peer recovery coaching & person fitness training, and undergo our 12-step program all in a secure setting.
In this “community integration” model, the clients get to experience life–shopping in the supermarket, going on a barbeque, going to a doctor’s appointment, going on a job interview–all with staff supervision, and clinical staff that can help them process any and all the feelings and emotions that can so often arise in early recovery.
The success rates at traditional rehabs are so low because they don’t adequately prepare a client for real life. At the Omega treatment houses, our clients are life-tested and battle ready to launch into their new clean and sober lives after participating in our IOP Intensive Outpatient Program.
