Nestled in a beautiful and exclusive complex just outside Austin, Texas, Spirit Lodge offers a comprehensive program to help men and women struggling with alcoholism or substance abuse reclaim their lives.

Drug and alcohol intervention in Austin is a highly individualized process.

Once the assessment is complete, the team at Spirit Lodge customizes an individualized treatment plan with the goal being to successfully complete a 35-day inpatient treatment program.
