Sante Center for Healing is a CARF-accredited outpatient treatment facility in Argyle, Texas, that offers Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for men and women dealing with addiction and co-occurring disorders.

Clients experience both group and individual therapy that utilizes evidence-based and 12-step modalities, in addition to holistic approaches.
Treatment and Staff
The IOP is based on a phased step-down system that initially requires three evenings per week of treatment that’s eventually tapered down to one evening. At the assessment, clients work with their therapist to design a treatment goal plan. Programming is individualized, so while it’s typically 24 weeks in length, treatment time can vary depending on the individual.
In addition to the general program curriculum, there are other specialty group and intensives provided that address issues like trauma and codependency. These programs are not only for the clients but their loved ones as well.
The first phase of the IOP is 10 hours of treatment per week, mainly spent in a group therapy setting with one weekly individual session. Phase two requires seven hours per week over two nights, and the final phase is three hours, once a week. Sante offers gender-specific groups along with co-ed ones, and sessions address topics like relapse prevention and overall health and well-being. Therapeutic approaches include CBT, DBT, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance-Commitment Therapy (ACT). Medication management services are available and overseen my skilled RNs. Clients also participate in local AA or NA support meetings during their time in the IOP.
Art and music therapy are implemented alongside clinical treatment. There is an aftercare program facilitated by Sante alumni. This program offers weekly meetings and occasional sober retreats. There is also family and couples counseling available.
The outpatient programming offered at Sante Center for Healing is consistent and thorough, providing several different therapeutic modalities, 12-step incorporation and holistic treatment, all moving at the client’s recovery pace. Those in the Greater Austin area would do well to seek substance abuse treatment through this well-reputed network.
