Based out of Austin, Texas and the surrounding area, Any Length Retreat is an intimate sober living organization for men in recovery from addiction and co-occurring disorders. The facility operates three houses in and around Austin and offers brief “retreats” rather than longer-term living options. Treatment plans come in two, four and eight-week varieties and include
Accommodations and Amenities
As mentioned, Any Length Retreat has thee separate homes for men in recovery, each of which is slightly different. In general though, residents can expect to stay in a house with roughly five bedrooms, each with shared rooms complete with furnishing and bunked twin beds. Each house also comes with all the other amenities of home including common areas with couches and cable TV, WiFi throughout, in-house laundry, dining room areas, shared bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchens. Throughout their stay, all residents are expected to cook and prepare their own meals.
Rules and Regulations
As with many sober living programs, all clients are expected to follow a basic house behavioral contract and submit to regular and random drug testing. As mentioned, the facility has programs in two, four and eight-week intensity levels. The two week program is known as the “Vicious Cycle” program for chronic relapsers and takes participants through the 12 steps along with an individualized care plan. The four-week program is the “Root and Branch” program, which involves broadening the scope of recovery to include related mental issues and habits. Finally, the eight-week “Road to Construction” program is the most extensive option and includes guided meditation, group therapy, sober coaching and more. While basic support may be available for mild depression and anxiety, those with more severe issues may need to seek additional help elsewhere.
In the longer-term programs, clients are expected to begin the process of getting a sponsor and being productive with their free time, which could mean finding a job, going to school or volunteering. Men who are 18 years and older and are relatively psychologically stable are welcome to attend. No electronics or smartphones are allowed.
The facility also offers a family program which includes counseling services for residents and their families. Those who complete one of the above retreats can also continue onto a more permanent sober living solution in the area through Any Length Retreat at a lower price.
Overall, Any Length Retreat is a flexible, balanced option for clients who have already been through primary care and are looking for a transitional living option. While the homes do not offer extensive dual diagnosis support or evidence-based treatment, they do provide a structured and sober environment with peer support and guidance. Because these plans come in several different intensity levels, prospective clients are sure to find a program that suits their needs. For men in the area looking for shorter-term sober housing, Any Length Retreat’s programs may be worth considering.
