T.C.R.C. was an amazing experience. First of all Turtle Creek Recovery Center is located in the heart of Uptown Dallas in an old 3 story Southern mansion built in the year 1900.
It is a 28 day program.
T.C.R.C. requires negative COVID test results in hand when arriving and recommends filling all scripts with a 30 day supply of your meds.
The staff was exceptional, held meetings all day Monday - Friday and on Saturday and Sunday as well (just not as many).
The mansion was clean, food was great...all done by clients.
From what I can recall, the schedule was something like this:
Monday - Friday
6AM was breakfast (cereal) & 1st Med Call
7:45AM was morning Meditation (basically roll call Mood, Affirmation Quote, etc)
8AM - 9AM was chores / cleanup
9AM - noon was meetings (AA, NA, CA and in house staff led meetings).
Noon - Lunch prepared and served by clients
1PM - 5PM was meetings (AA, NA, CA and in house staff led meetings).
2PM was afternoon Med Call
5PM was dinner
8PM was evening Meditation
9PM was last Medication call, temperature check and snacks.
10:30PM was lights out.
Saturday and Sunday we started later and had a hot breakfast on Sunday Morning.
Sweet Tea and Coffee all day everyday.
7 smoke breaks a day, vapes are allowed and there is USUALLY community cigarettes.
T.C.R.C. has TONS of movies, books for idle time, 2 large TVs downstairs with Internet access on them so the staff allowed us to play YouTube music on 1 of the TVs (Group Room) while the other TV usually had sports or News on it (Boring).
So we were jamming out Metallica, Pearl Jam, etc. during idle times.
The kitchen also has a radio so the clients would be jamming out 97.1 The Eagle rock while preparing meals which added to the kewlness.
Turtle Creek Recovery Center is NOW an ALL male facility except for Staff.
There is 1 restroom downstairs for client use, 1 Handicap room equipped for 2 with shower and restroom.
There are 3 bathrooms on 2nd and 3rd floors with shower / tub and 1 handicap room on 2nd floor as well with private bathroom / shower / toilet.
Typically 3 males are assigned to each room, the beds are very comfortable and 2 windows per room. I had a nice view of some trees overlooking the One Uptown Condos building.
After a person has been there 3 - 4 weeks, the staff tries to assign a private room for that person which is really nice.
I was there for Christmas 2020 and New Years 2021 and the staff hosted a WONDERFUL Christmas meal from Cowboy Chicken, had homemade dishes, we played all sorts of games (Christmas Bingo, Pin the nose of Reindeer, etc) and even gave us all really nice Christmas gifts (Knit hat, long wool socks and an Old Spice men\'s kit of Body Wash, Deodorant & Body Spray).
