Review by Contributors


Based in Dickinson, Texas, Bay Area Recovery Center (BARC) operates a residential treatment center for adult men needing treatment for substance use disorder. It's among the 45.2 percent of treatment facilities in Texas to provide treatment specifically tailored to men. The facility is also among the 8.4 percent of residential programs in the state to provide medical detox.

Outpatient care and a program for women are offered at separate facilities Webster and Dickinson.


Treatment at BARC begins with comprehensive assessment to determine the client’s needs. The residential program can last anywhere from 30 and 90 days. In 2017, just 21.8 percent of treatment facilities in Texas provided residential programming that lasted longer than 30 days.

The program is 12-step-based and includes individual and group therapy, as well as sober living educational courses and recreational activities. Social development and relapse prevention skills are taught to help clients maintain a sober lifestyle.

Family support is encouraged throughout the program and family counseling and visitation are encouraged. However, visitations are limited at the beginning of treatment to allow clients to acclimate to the program.

Aftercare services are provided free of charge to clients that successfully complete the treatment programs. An alumni support group is also available.


The treatment team includes registered nurses, social workers, licensed chemical dependency counselors, and a licensed professional counselor.


BARC creates a home-like atmosphere for treatment. Medical staff is on hand 24/7 to service clients’ medical needs, and to supervise clients to help maintain their sobriety.


The sole alum polled by to date, an anonymous male between the ages of 40 and 59, gave BARC mostly positive feedback. He awarded the facility four or five out of five stars for its cleanliness, its staff support, its staff's level of training, and the overall quality of its group and individual counseling. While he did note that there were a lack of activities in between therapy, he also described BARC as a "nice small facility" with intimate and effective group therapy sessions.

The facility earned a percent average rating of five out of five stars based on 18 Google reviews[1]. Former clients who left feedback described BARC as an effective and well-run treatment center with knowledgeable and compassionate staff. "Highly recommend for anyone struggling with addiction of any kind. The love this place has shown me helped to turn my life around," Jacob wrote in a representative review.


According to Bay Area Recovery Center’s website, the center works with many major health insurance providers, including Aetna, Cigna, and Humana. Additionally, financing options are available through a partnership with Prosper Healthcare Lending. Medicare and Medicaid are not accepted.

Small groups make it easy to get attention equally. nothing good to kill time between meetings. It was a nice small facility but lacked things to do there
