ABOUT ANY LENGTH RETREAT FOR MEN
Located on a five-acre ranch in the north Austin suburb of Pflugerville, Any Length Retreat offers medium- or long-term, 12-step-based residential programming for men. Medical detox is not available on-site. The center specializes in treating individuals who have struggled with chronic relapse. It's among the 21.8 percent of rehabs in Texas that offer residential treatment lasting longer than 30 days, and among the 45.2 percent that offer dedicated programming of some kind for adult men.
Any Length stresses that prospective clients must be medically stable when they arrive for treatment, and that the program does not provide medical or clinical treatment, but rather gives a grounding in mentorship and the 12-Steps.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Programs are offered in increments of 30, 60, and 90 days. All programs are built around mentorship, brotherhood, and the 12-Steps, and do not offer clinical treatment services.
The 30-day Vicious Cycle Program is an expedited program to help clients who have relapsed while in sober living. The 60-day Root and Branch Program looks at the reasons why clients partake in substance misuse and helps them learn about addiction in greater detail. The 90-day Road to Reconstruction Program helps clients discover problems within themselves besides their substance misuse, and develop real comfort and confidence in their recovery.
After completing a program, or retreat, clients may enter Any Length’s Residence Recovery program, a sober living home offering stays of anywhere between 30 days and nine months. During the three-phase program, clients continue the 12-steps model and learn how to live an independent, sober life, through peer accountability and increasing freedoms, such as updates on their families, the lifting of their curfew, and passes to stay off-campus with their families occasionally.
A family program provides education for residents' loved ones, plus encouragement to families to participate in Al-Anon sessions.
All staff members have used the 12-Steps to achieve sobriety in their own lives. The 17 individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff gave overwhelmingly positive feedback:

The reviews repeatedly noted that the center's unique atmosphere and the staff. "I truly had an experience here, to say the least.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Loved ones polled by Rehabs.com also gave mostly positive feedback, with one note of strong complaint. Parent C.A. wrote that the original program was helpful for their son, but that he was kicked out of the extended-care program with nowhere to go, and his mother wasn't notified. However, the six loved ones polled on the facility's offerings in a variety of metrics gave it overwhelmingly positive feedback.

WHAT STAFF SAY
The two staff members polled to date by Rehabs.com also gave highly positive feedback. Both employees gave the facility five-star ratings for its basis in the 12-Steps and its connectivity and visitor policies. The center's counseling options and family participation received a four-star and a five-star rating each. However, the employees were less enthusiastic about the facility's ability to treat co-occurring disorders, which received a two-star rating and a four-star rating.
The reviewers repeatedly stressed Any Length's commitment to the betterment of its residents, though one reviewer also noted that better exercise equipment, such as a swimming pool, would be desirable.
Though Any Length doesn't currently list the cost of its programs, the 17 individuals polled by Rehabs.com strongly agreed that the program was affordable.
