Hill County Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse was founded in 1991 in Kerrville, Texas, a small town in the central hill country of the state. Over its 25 years in business, the non-profit organization has grown from servicing 300 clients in the first year to now serving over 3,000 clients annually. Hill County offers outpatient substance abuse treatment to adult men and women.
Treatment and Staff
The intake process at Hill County begins with an initial phone discussion followed by an in-person assessment with the intake coordinator. During this initial meeting, the client must bring a photo ID, proof of income if they are working, a utility bill and a copy of their insurance card. A counselor determines the client’s potential level of care and helps chart a treatment plan. Clients must be at least three days sober before entering into treatment at Hill County, and are referred to outside detox or residential programs if they are not sober or need a higher level of care.
Hill County’s outpatient program generally lasts for 16 weeks and consists of both group and individual counseling. Still, the length of the program can be shortened or extended based on the needs of the client. Groups meet Mondays and Tuesdays in the evenings from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The group meetings generally consist of 10 to 15 clients and are led by one counselor. Groups use a variety of treatment techniques including CBT and relapse prevention as well as education and sharing. Clients meet once a week for individual sessions with counselors.
Counselors also use the 12 steps in the group meetings and help individuals begin the process of working the steps. It’s also recommended clients attend outside AA and NA meetings and find a sponsor while in the program. Although Hill County does not offer dual diagnosis support, counselors can refer clients with potential co-occurring disorders to outside mental health counselors and providers. All of Hill County’s counselors are LCDCs.
Although Hill County does not have an official family program, clients can request individual meetings with their family members and one of Hill County’s counselors. These meetings are aimed at addressing potential family co-dependency issues and educating the family members on substance abuse and recovery issues.
Hill Country offers an aftercare program called Genesis. The program lasts for 16 weeks and consists of a weekly two-hour group meeting. These meetings are focused on relapse prevention and helping clients transition into life outside of the outpatient program.
