  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Set on 40 acres in Texas Hill Country, La Hacienda Treatment Center provides residential treatment and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. Located in Hunt, Texas, 80 miles north of San Antonio, the facility also provides specialized program tracks for college students, professionals, and a Christian-focused track. If necessary, medical detoxification services are available on-site.


According to La Hacienda Treatment Center's website, before beginning treatment, clients undergo an initial assessment to determine an appropriate level of care. If a client requires detoxification, the individual may be referred to the residential program.

Residential treatment typically lasts between three and five weeks. La Hacienda’s residential treatment program blends 12-step immersion with evidence-based treatment modalities in a therapeutic community model of recovery.

During residential treatment, clients adhere to a structured schedule of individual, group, and family counseling sessions and educational classes. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) may also be incorporated into programming to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal and help curb cravings. Clients also attend on- and off-site 12-step meetings and attend workshops that facilitate and guide clients in their “step-work.”

As indicated, clients with co-occurring psychiatric disorders receive ongoing psychiatric evaluations and medication management. Emphasis is placed on the rapid emotional and physical changes that occur during early recovery, and all clients see a medical doctor daily.

To individualize its programming, the facility offers a specialized Christian track for clients seeking a faith-based approach to treatment, as well as a recovering professionals program, and a young adult program for clients ages 18 to 24. Individuals in these program tracks attend specialized counseling groups and activities relevant to their recovery. A multi-day family program for loved ones is available in all program tracks.

Along with traditional treatment approaches, La Hacienda incorporates several recreational and alternative activities to promote holistic wellness. During treatment, clients can participate in ropes course challenges, hike the grounds, exercise with personal trainers, and receive therapeutic massages. Worship services are also held on-site.

Upon discharge, clinicians help individuals to create continuing care plans, which may involve transitioning into the facility’s outpatient program. The facility’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) consists of group and individual counseling, as well as educational lectures, weekly family groups, and drug testing.


La Hacienda's treatment's website notes its staff includes four licensed physicians who are Diplomats of the American Board of Addiction Medicine, as well as a full-time psychiatrist, registered nurses, and licensed chemical dependency counselors. According to the facility, La Hacienda provides a staff-to-client ratio of 6:1.


The facility offers 125 beds and is set on a lush, 40-acre wooded campus with walking trails and fitness stations. The facility's website indicates it features an on-site gym, a swimming pool, and a ropes course, as well as a chapel set atop a tranquil hill. Staff and clients share chef-prepared meals three times a day to help build a sense of community, and field trips are held on a regular basis.
