ABOUT RECOVERY ALLIANCE
Recovery Alliance, located in El Paso, Texas, offers residential treatment and peer recovery support services to adults seeking treatment for alcoholism and drug addiction. The residential treatment home operated by Recovery Alliance is known as Casa Vida de Salud and has been in operation since 1998. Peer recovery support services were started in 2002. Recovery Alliance also provides support to families and community allies who are supporting the client’s recovery process. Detox is not available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The facility’s residential treatment program, Casa Vida de Salud, follows the 12-Steps and all staff members are individuals who have successfully gone through recovery themselves. The residential program lasts for 90 days, making it one of Texas’ 94 (21.8 percent) long-term residential programs.
The facility accepts clients with co-occurring disorders. It is one of only 193 (44.8 percent) treatment facilities in the state with programs for co-occurring disorders. Throughout treatment, clients participate in twice daily recovery support meetings, weekly meetings with recovery coaches, and a personal plan of recovery developed for their specific needs.
Casa Vida also operates a federally qualified health center to provide primary medical care and treatment of mental illness; this is considered an integrated healthcare solution. Through this, clients may receive medical care and medication management services while in recovery. Casa Vida also offers social and recreational events in the large auditorium that is part of the facility.
Aftercare is available for all clients who successfully complete the program in the form of continued meetings with coaches for six months following residential care. Clients also receive assistance prior to their departure from the program to develop an exit plan to transition from residential care back into the community.
The treatment team includes staff and volunteers who have successfully completed treatment themselves and are now in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. The facility has religious personnel that can provide spiritual support.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Casa Vida offers a home-like setting for clients to recover in. The facility is equipped with a large commercial-sized kitchen and support for special dietary needs is provided.
