Open since July 2015, Brookswood Sober Living and Clinical Services is a recent addition to the Texas substance abuse treatment landscape. Located in Kerrville, Texas, Brookswood offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), a Supportive Outpatient Program (SOP) and sober living exclusively for adult women with treatment services based on the 12-step method or recovery.
Accommodations and Food
Accommodations are single family homes in residential neighborhoods. Houses are comfortably furnished with colorful decor and fully equipped kitchens. Bedrooms and bathrooms are shared with dressers, closets and nightstands for personal items. All three facilities ensure women live in a supportive and positive environment conducive to recovery.
All Brookswood affiliated sober living homes are in close proximity to a variety of AA/NA meetings in the surrounding community. Brookswood reserves eight beds among the facilities for clients seeking transitional housing. All homes are exclusively for women and run by a team of female directors and live-in house managers. The homes run structured schedules of daily meditation, shared chores, weekly house meetings and nightly curfew. No food is provided through Brookswood, so clients are responsible for their own grocery shopping and meal preparation. Clients may maintain use of their car.
Treatment and Staff
While in sober living, Brookswood clients take part in 10 hours of weekly IOP therapy and are also expected to attend local 12-step meetings regularly, find a sponsor and be seeking employment.
The IOP typically lasts eight weeks and emphasizes peer support and accountability along with 10 combined hours of individual and group therapy per week. Clients enrolled in IOP are given individualized treatment plans. Groups are scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays between 4:30 and 7:30 pm. Clients also have a one-hour session of individual therapy per week. Session topics include the 12 steps, relapse prevention, spirituality and recovery, healthy boundaries, active recovery planning, family systems and relationships dynamics, communication skills, proactive problem-solving, dealing with anxiety and depression and self-care strategies for long-term sobriety.
The SOP track is an optional service for clients who either successfully complete the IOP or those in the recovery community in search of low-intensity supportive outpatient services. The SOP runs a two-hour group once a week on Wednesdays between 4:30 and 6:30 pm. Clients can also schedule an individual session once a week or once every two weeks.
Brookswood is run by a director of operations and staffed by a director of admissions, two CSACs and a sober home director as well as two licensed therapists.
Brookswood Sober Living and Clinical Services offers a unique program that combines traditional outpatient substance abuse treatment programs of varying intensities with sober living. Programs are tailored for women and a comprehensive range of group topics that focus on physical, mental and spiritual recovery. This facility allows clients to pay on a sliding-scale based on client’s ability to pay, making treatment accessible to all.
