Founded in 2013 in Austin, Texas, by recovering addict, Michael Dadashi, Infinite Recovery is a substance abuse rehab facility that provides several programs for clients, including an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and gender-specific sober living homes.
Accommodations and Amenities
Infinite Recovery operates three transitional living houses that include two men’s houses and one women’s house. These houses are open to all those in recovery, but also accommodate clients in outpatient treatment at Infinite Recovery. The houses each provide space for 10 individuals at a time. The houses are all located in quiet residential neighborhoods, and include spacious backyards. The Aspen house for women is a ranch-style home with a swimming pool. Clients are paired in rooms that include twin beds attached to headboards with cubbie space, closet space and reading lamps. While the rooms are simple in furnishings, they are immaculately clean.
Clients are responsible for their own groceries, which are prepared in spacious, fully equipped kitchens.
Rules and Regulations
Infinite Recovery asks for a 90-day minimum length of stay. Most clients reside in sober living between six months and one year. The houses operate on a phase system. The length of each stage varies on a client-to-client basis. During the first phase, clients must attend five weekly 12-step meetings. IOP also counts towards fulfilling the weekly requirement. Additional requirements include being at weekly group meditations, participating at house meetings and being present at nightly reviews. The curfew is 10 pm Sundays through Thursdays, and 11 pm Fridays and Saturdays.
A typical daily schedule for both men and women includes waking up at 8 am, followed by meditation at 8:30, job searching (or volunteering) from 10 am to 3 pm, and personal time from 3 to 6 pm. During the evenings, clients attend AA meetings and every evening ends with a 10:15 pm nightly review group. Clients undergo three weekly drug and alcohol screenings. There is a zero tolerance policy for those who test positive.
Recovery coaches are on hand to provide vocational guidance, life skills training and other valuable learning tools aimed to help newly clean and sober clients.
Infinite Recovery Sober Living focuses on providing a spiritual approach, which includes a complete absorption into the 12-steps, as well as a highly structured environment. Although those looking for independence may want to keep looking, Infinite Recovery sober living is a great option for clients who want a built in support group and to connect with the thriving local AA fellowship in Austin.
