Elevations Health Philosophy

Our program is designed to lower your level of care and increase your level of independence when you're ready. Your custom treatment plan will address your unique addiction history, physical and mental health, and personal goals for recovery. Your progress towards sustainable sobriety will determine how quickly you move through each phase. Clients spend as little as 30 days in our program or as long as six months. Wellington's programs and treatments are successful because our therapists are skilled at quickly developing a strong bond with our clients. The full continuum of care means that clients will continue the relationships they've had with staff from the moment they enter detox through sober living, and beyond.

Areas of Specialization

  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

ABOUT ELEVATIONS HEALTH - BUDA

Elevations Health, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Buda, Texas, has provided recovery options for men and women since the fall of 2016. The Elevations Health program began in Florida in 2005 with an emphasis on incorporating medical and psychotherapeutic treatments at all levels of care, from detoxification through transitional living services. Patients work through highly individualized processes in a comfortable community just outside of Austin.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Beginning with a thorough assessment overseen by an on-site physician, Elevations patients collaborate with clinical staff and family members to develop a personalized program of recovery. Each program is designed to meet an individual’s unique addiction history, health, and goals. Holistic and alternative therapeutic methods are practiced in combination with medication management, life skills training, creative therapies, and traditional group and family counseling.

A typical, initial residential phase lasts for 30 days, but may continue for as long as 90 days or more. Transitional care and independent, sober living homes are also a part of the Elevations process. Some individuals may participate in rehabilitation through partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient programs, which feature many of the same therapies and qualities as the inpatient program.

A comprehensive array of treatments and practices available includes yoga, art, music, animal-assisted, gestalt, hypnosis, trauma, nutrition, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapies.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The facility’s treatment team includes a psychiatrist who has been in practice for more than 30 years and a board certified medical doctor who specializes in addiction medicine. The staff also includes licensed mental health counselors and certified addiction professionals.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The residential treatment program at Elevations Health features small, upscale homes with 24/7 staff supervision and support.

Six clients live in each home, allowing for especially customized experiences. According to a facility press release, there are 22 beds available at the Buda rehab center. Townhomes host clients who remain with Elevations for sober living and transitional recovery. Comfortable bedrooms, shared living areas, and recreational spaces highlight the center’s accommodations.
