Accommodations and Food
All told, the residential program can host between 30 and 32 people. Women stay in dorm-style bedrooms with two to three clients to a room. The residence also has common living areas with cable TV, on-site laundry and on-site daycare services. As the organization is located in the country, there are also wooded walking trails residents can explore at their leisure. Finally, the program also has a commercial kitchen where clients are served three meals a day.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help staff members develop treatment plans. Though detox is not available on-site, those in need can get referrals to nearby programs. Once stabilized, all participants go through structured days which include individual and group therapy with evidence-based practices including CBT and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET). Groups cover a diverse range of topics including emotional processing, trauma-informed care, parenting skills, relapse prevention and financial literacy. Treatment programs also rely on 12-step recovery principles but dual diagnosis support is not available.
Residents can have family visitation on the weekends which sometimes includes family therapy as well. The facility is also located on a bus route which can take clients into the city. Other than the treatment methods mentioned above, special classes covering Zumba or arts and crafts are sometimes provided as well.
Volunteers of America Texas’ residential division is a well-rounded program for mothers with children. Treatment is evidence-based and includes 12-step support in addition to a range of skill-based group sessions. For those in the area seeking a flexible and affordable treatment option, Volunteers of America Texas Residential is worth considering.
