ABOUT ETERNAL AWAKENINGS

Located in Gonzales, Texas, Eternal Awakenings is one of Texas’ 94 long-term residential facilities. It offers a residential, faith-based (Christian) recovery program to adults seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. The center’s cornerstone of treatment is Christianity, scripture, and prayer. Detox is not available.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at Eternal Awakenings is faith-based focusing on Christian values. The treatment process includes Bible study combined with counseling and recreational therapy methods. During treatment, clients are expected to follow a strict treatment plan with religious service and activity participation as mandatory components. The center believes by applying faith-based principles to the recovery process, people are empowered to overcome alcoholism and addiction.

Clients’ treatment plans include the 12-Steps, counseling, and education. The 12-Step program is a favorite among treatment programs and religious groups as it has a distinct spiritual component. In Texas, 71.9 percent of facilities use it in treatment programs. Christian family counseling is also available.

The center’s staff believes that exercise is important to recovery and serenity. Clients at Eternal Awakenings have free access to exercise equipment at Revival Fitness, which is a short walk from the recovery center. Other services at the fitness center include massage, tanning, physical training, and daily CrossFit classes.

Living Waters Fellowship is located in the facility’s new on site chapel. The chapel includes counseling spaces, worship spaces, and a space for music therapy. The chapel holds religious services two days each week, and clients are expected to attend.

The Living Waters Fellowship chapel is located nearby and serves as a religious center as well as a social center for the program.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The two alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing had positive experiences with Eternal Awakening. Both alumni gave the center five out of five stars when asked if they would recommend the residential treatment. They also each gave the center five stars for its exercise and leisure provisions, visitor policy, family participation, affordability, and the staff’s level of training and experience. However, both alumni only gave three stars for its holistic offerings.

On Google, 11 people left ratings for this facility that averaged 4.6 out of five stars.[1] Most gave positive feedback about Eternal Awakening, except Kiraann who gave two stars and said: "Felt like I left out of it, but I also felt lost in the mix...They did not do anything to make me feel like I was as important as others."

On the other hand, multiple alumni credited the center with saving their lives, and others praised the staff. One alum wrote on Google: “These guys are a god sent. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, call them now.” Another alum, Peter, wrote the center was “Nothing short of a miracle!”

FINANCING

Some residents see consulting doctors, and doctor visits are not included in treatment cost. An initial evaluation with consulting doctors are $300, and each visit after is $150.

CONCLUSION

To support the organization, Eternal Awakenings has a merchandise store. It has new t-shirts and other merchandise that help fund programs. The facility’s social media pages also provide inspiration and insight into the facility’s teachings to help clients maintain their sobriety and faith after they leave treatment.

Very personal and family oriented. Spirituality is high on the list as well. I owe 5 years of sobriety to God first and Eternal Awakenings second. I don't think I could have gotten clean at an other facility. They treat you like you are human, give you freedom and the rest is on you. You will get back exponentially what you put into this program.

Spirituality is a blessing. The piano, exercise and other activities provided are a blessing. Those who are leaders there are a blessing. The family atmosphere is a blessing. Not much in routine. I was there for 4 moths. I was treated with respect. They do have a psychiatrist and internist who can help with mental problems. They also refer to the Bible and know that Jesus saves.
