About Recovery Unplugged Austin Treatment Center
RU Encore utilizes the healing power of music through a variety of therapeutic techniques to help patients access dormant emotions and heal from substance abuse and underlying mental illness.
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.
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Process Abuse Treatment
Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

ABOUT RECOVERY UNPLUGGED AUSTIN TREATMENT CENTER
Recovery Unplugged is an addiction care organization that provides music-based addiction treatment for adults struggling with drug and alcohol dependency. The organization operates numerous facilities in Texas, Virginia, Colorado, and Florida.
The Recovery Unplugged Austin Treatment Center, one of three facilities located in Austin, Texas, offers a variety of addiction services, including an intensive outpatient program (IOP), a partial-hospitalization program (PHP), medical detox, residential treatment, dual diagnosis treatment, and long-term aftercare.
According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 15.1 percent of rehabs in Texas offer day treatment or PHP, 9.5 percent offer detox in an outpatient setting, and 8.4 offer detox in a residential setting.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to Recovery Unplugged's website, treatment is centered around writing, studying, recording, and performing music. The process is designed to help individuals express their emotions through self-discovery and constructive channeling. Treatment is available to all individuals regardless of musical ability.
Treatment typically starts with the center's medical detox, which utilizes Suboxone or Vivitrol. After detox, treatment includes a variety of modalities, including in-depth group therapy, individualized counseling, music-based therapies, 12-step meetings, and other supplemental therapies.
The residential program usually lasts between 30 to 45 days. The organization's website notes that inpatient rehab is particularly helpful for those suffering from dual-diagnosis disorders.
Outpatient treatment is offered at several intensity levels. Regular outpatient program includes one to six hours of programming per week. Individuals in IOP meet three nights a week for five to seven weeks. According to the organization's website, PHP bridges the gap between residential and outpatient alcohol and drug rehab.
Additionally, Recovery Unplugged facilities offer specialized treatment for LGBTQ individuals, a treatment specialization offered at 20 percent of rehabs in Texas.
Recovery Unplugged's website notes that the treatment team includes therapists, doctors, nurses, and case managers. All Recovery Unplugged facilities are certified by the Joint Commission, a certification held by 27.6 percent of rehabs in Texas according to a 2017 SAMHSA survey.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to Recovery Unplugged's website, facilities offer a wide variety of amenities including fully equipped music production and performance spaces, freshly prepared food, 24-7 security, yoga and meditation, and a gym and recreational facilities.
