When it comes to addiction recovery, there are a plethora of resources available today. Like people, addiction retreats come in all shapes and sizes, and they have many different focuses. However, at Any Length Retreat Center, our goal is to simplify the recovery process by providing addiction Retreats for anyone, at whatever length they might need. Specifically, we offer three key Retreats: two-week, four-week, and eight-week. But while the lengths of the Retreats differ, there’s one important thing that remains the same in all three: You are undoubtedly, unequivocally the focus. Rather than forcing individuals to adhere to our Retreats, Any Length Retreats adhere to you.
Each of our Retreats can be tailored to a person’s individual needs, ensuring that everyone gets the level of one-on-one attention needed to achieve lasting sobriety. Our thirty-day drug retreat in Austin, Texas, offers this highly-personable Retreat in the popular one-month, or four-week, format. With our thirty-day Austin Retreat, our goal is to help you build a strong foundation for your recovery from alcohol or drug addiction
The ‘Root and Branch’ Program
The one-month addiction Retreat is surely one of the most common and widespread. Part of the reason why it’s so popular is that it’s very smartly designed. Research has shown us that developing a habit takes at least three weeks, so our thirty-day Root and Branch Retreat will allow individuals suffering from alcohol and drug addiction to get acclimated to their newfound sobriety. In fact, the Root and Branch Retreat is so-named because it’s designed to help people achieve the basics of recovery and begin the process of turning those recovery basics into the foundation of their new lives; in other words, their recoveries are “taking root.” However, the Root and Branch Retreat offers sufficient length for individuals to begin “branching” out to other areas of recovery. As you’re surely aware, addiction recovery is a very multi-faceted journey and people suffering from addiction have a full range of addiction needs; this means that the Retreat needs to be flexible so they can address such a spectrum of needs. Many people believe that when it comes to addiction, it’s the alcohol or drugs that are the problem. It’s understandable why this would be such a common misconception; however, the real root of addiction is the actual addict because it’s when a person begins to see alcohol or drugs as a solution that addiction becomes inevitable. That’s why a major focus of our Root and Branch Retreat is why addicts do the things they do. We want to help every addict learn about addiction in greater detail, including the common causes and contributors, what psychological and physiological changes addiction causes, and how addicts could continue to abuse alcohol or drugs in spite of the consequences.
Emphasis on The Twelve Steps
There’s probably not a single person who’s not, at least in some small way, familiar with the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. The twelve-step method has been used by hundreds of millions of people for close to a century. In fact, this is why the Twelve Steps are often used as the bedrock of most addiction Retreats. What’s so unique about the Twelve Steps is that, rather than being a recovery tool that addresses only one dimension of addiction, working the Twelve Steps will help a person to achieve, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social recovery. It’s a balanced approach that many other methods have unsuccessfully tried to duplicate. At Any Length Retreat Center, we recognize the usefulness and importance of the Twelve Steps by incorporating the twelve-step method into the Root and Branch Retreat.
Whether you’re religious, spiritual, or neither, there’s inherent value in working the Twelve Steps, and that’s why we cover them over the course of our thirty-day drug retreat in Austin. Although spiritual recovery is there if a person wants it, the most important takeaways from the Twelve Steps include being able to assess one’s character defects, developing the strength of character to overcome those defects, understanding the value of one’s relationships, learning how and why to make amends for wrongs committed against others, and learning about the importance of fellowship and community.
Any Length Retreat is a safe, sober, effective atmosphere to recover an efficient and rewarding quality of life. (866) 433-1992
The Any Length Retreat is a safe, sober, effective atmosphere to recover an effective and rewarding quality of life.
One of the reasons that the thirty-day Retreat is considered a recovery staple is because it’s long enough to provide ample time for the key components of restoration, but it’s no so long that a person who’s attempting recovery for the first time would be overly intimidated. When a person is just learning the core tenets of how to live a sober life, it’s crucial to have time for reflection and self-assessment. This means that a person needs to have some time to think back
on the journey to addiction, applying the lessons and information acquired in recovery to one’s situation.
However, self-reflection isn’t only achieved while one is in solitude. In Any Length thirty-day drug retreat in Austin, Texas, individuals will have one-on-one time with mentors as well as group sessions with other residents. In both these situations, a person will learn a lot about himself, what led to the development of addiction, what personal characteristics might have
contributed to the addiction, and so on. Even in group settings, being able to share one’s perspectives and consider the perspectives of others is incredibly valuable.
Developing a Productive, Sober Lifestyle
While in active addiction, a person becomes accustomed to much of his or her life revolving around the seeking and consumption of mind-altering substances. As drug addiction becomes a daily habit, being in active addiction becomes ingrained in one’s lifestyle, which is one of the reasons why addiction is so hard to overcome on one’s own when left to one’s own devices.
Before men’s sober living in Austin, our thirty-day Root and Branch Retreat helps individuals to begin developing a healthy, productive lifestyle. This is achieved by structuring each day around a specific schedule, which consists of all the recovery-oriented components — meditation sessions, topical discussion groups, recovery meetings — as well as things like volunteer time, life skills such as cleaning one’s living environment and searching for a job, and many other things that will help a person to become more accountable. In effect, our thirty-day drug retreat in Austin encourages individuals in recovery to begin forming healthy habits that will help them be independent, productive members of their communities.
