There is a guy who is claiming to be the "Director". He is a joke. Thinks he knows everything. Buddy, if Recovery Unplugged was a great facility and you were the director, I know for a fact you wouldn't look elsewhere to find treatment for your family members. Nice speaking to you.

My daughter attended the center. As the parent of an addict who has been through numerous treatment programs, I can attest that this has been our best experience. The treatment she has received as well as the constant communication with the family has enabled me to stay informed and involved in every step of her recovery. I highly recommend the center.

RU is one of the most unique treatment centers in the area. The staff goes above and beyond every day for clients. The food is fantastic, groups are exciting and fun, clinicians are incredible. Tech staff is amazing at relating their experience to what we are going through at 30 days sober. I’ve never had a treatment center (and I’ve been to ALOT) that genuinely cares and wants me to succeed. This is by far the most amazing place I’ve ever had the chance to go. Thank you.

I want to thank everyone at this facility for saving my life. It started from Lauren in admissions who stuck by me and helped me for over two weeks to get in to this facility and stay safe. They treat you like family and that’s important. You have fun learning about yourself and how to stay sober. Thank you RU

I am forever grateful for this program for giving me my sister back. I didn't want to speak to her for years because of her addiction. She went to Recovery Unplugged broken and hating life. She came out a new person, so full of life. She is my best friend again. I would have never had a relationship with her again if it wasn't for Recovery Unplugged. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving her the tools she needs to beat this addiction.

The staff is both professional and involved. They take the time to get to know every client individually and relate their own personal experiences on a very human level. They made me feel like I matter. The food is excellent, the extracurricular activities are fun, the beds are comfortable etc. etc. Great place! There is not enough time to play music. The medical staff need to be more attentive to clients who are sick or in pain. I have been to 9 treatment centers and this is the last one my insurance will pay for. I am so glad I took this opportunity to come here to get sober again. This place made me feel like I actually deserve my sobriety rather than seeing it as a punishment. I highly recommend it. I'm almost glad I relapsed just so I could come to Recovery Unplugged in Austin, TX.

Facilities were great. Tech staff disorganized and sometimes disrespectful. Beware of 5 star reviews from current staff here and owners. This facility is average. Incorporating music was helpful. People who run this place are very young and don\'t have a whole lot of life experience. They are still trying to get their feet under them. Poor discharge pkanning. They claim to have a 50% success rate, however of the 20 or so people I met there at least half are already getting high less than 2 months later. If you\'re looking for good food, and an average program this might be for you. If you\'ve been to more than onenough treatment go elsewhere.

No strengths when compared to other facilities in the area. Facility is accepting higher acuity clients. This includes physical and psychological issues presented by clients. Detox clients are housed with residential clients. Apart from the medicine cart, there is an o2 finger saturation device, a blood pressure cuff, a thermometer and an AED. Several clients relapsed during my tenure with this facility. Choose a facility that meets your needs; there are many. If you and your family are in a position to compare facilities, please take the time to do so. This is a very important step in your life. The facility you choose could well have an impact on your success in Sobriety.

Fantastic staff Great living conditions Small treatment center (more intimate) Nightly 12 step meetings Most of the staff is in recovery and relate well with the clients and are very in tune with how to help guide them through recovery Disorganized at times Very strict phone priviledges I greatly enjoyed my experience and time here. Great food, nice facility, very personable and friendly staff, almost all of whom were in recovery and demonstrated and were living examples of life being enjoyable in sobriety. While not strictly 12 step based, RU's staff had all gone through and been involved in a 12 step program and were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful in guiding me through the initial steps and making me at ease with the idea of 12 step recovery.

Amazing staff, beautiful and clean living area, great groups and curiculum, music oriented, fun way of recovery, enough down time to now be overwhelmed, 12 step meetings almost every night, they go above and beyond for thier clients. Unequipped for flooding during hard rain, healthy but unappitizing food, needs more 12 step curiculum. The staff here made me feel like staying sober. They have helped me threw so much while my stay there and even after they still keep in contact. I would reccomend Recovery unplugged to anyone i know looking for recovery!

The facility allows clients to choose their own fellowship and path to recovery. Staff is all in recovery- they are caring and compassionate. Facility does not incorporate a lot of 12 step integration. The counselors are outstanding, they work with all the clients on a very personal level. The clients are well taken care of and are happy. The music that is incorporated into the programming helps a lot of clients express what they are feeling when they are unable to use words to describe it.

Small, intimate. Organic food prepared by a chef, dedicated hard-working staff, lots of social activities for clients, thoughtful programming Young facility (still working out details), limited space, no family or IOP program yet This facility uses music as a corner stone for all of its treatment. This is based on studies that show using music during therapy increases the recovery rate of clients. It is smaller, more intimate, which affords more opportunity for individual attention. The staff is very dedicated and committed to their client's successful recovery.
