Austin TexasTexas Star Recovery: Vista Recovery Review

Vista Recovery is a program of the Texas NeuroRehab Center, which provides long-term rehabilitative services and mental health services in Austin, Texas. TNRNC has both inpatient (which includes a detox unit) and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs under the umbrella of  Texas Star Recovery.

Vista Recovery is a separate residential program on the grounds of Texas NeuroRehab that features highly-customized treatment plans and upscale amenities. Texas NeuroRehab occupies a 67-acre campus in the Greenleaf Estates section of Austin and has been in operation for over 60 years.

Accommodations and Food

Clients are housed in an intimate residence with home-like décor that features traditional furnishings with colorful accents. Residents all have private rooms with full-sized beds. The residence has a modern exercise room and business center as well as a recreation room that features a TV and board games.

For exercise, clients can take advantage of walking trails and two swimming pools. The facility also features a ROPES course.

A private chef plans and prepares all meals. Clients can also partake in the chef’s weekly cooking and nutrition classes to help develop life skills and responsibility.

Treatment and Staff

Vista Recovery is a 30-day program. The treatment team takes a biopsychosocial approach to treatment, focusing on the physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual development of each client.

Clients participate in a daily program of group and individual therapy along with goal-setting, discharge planning and personal reflection time.

Days begin with exercise and meditation at 8:30 am. After a day of treatment activities, clients attend off-site 12-step meetings each evening and then spend time journaling. The day concludes with a community meeting for residents to share discoveries and issues uncovered in treatment.

Therapy uses CBT and DBT among other evidence-based modalities, and addresses coping skills and anger management. Groups are led by Master’s-level therapists including LCSWs, LPCs and LMFTs and LCDCs. The treatment team also includes psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who can provide additional therapy and medication management for clients with co-occurring disorders. However, clients admitted to Vista needing dual diagnosis support must be stabilized in their mental health diagnosis.


Residents have yoga classes twice a week. The staff takes clients on recreational outings and into Austin for weekly shopping excursions. Family therapy is available, and Vista hosts a family group each Saturday. For aftercare, clients may step down to Texas Star Recovery’s outpatient program and/or participate in its Wednesday evening alumni meeting.

In Summary

Texas Start Recovery is one of the oldest substance abuse treatment programs in Austin, Texas. Its Vista Recovery Program offers highly-customized treatment plans in a luxurious setting with ample recreation and amenities. With family groups, daily community meetings and personal reflection time, clients are likely to leave with a deep understanding of themselves and how they wish to contribute to the lives of those around them.
