Founded in 2010, San Antonio Recovery Center (SARC) is among the just 21.8 percent of Texas rehab facilities to provide long-term residential treatment to individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Specialized programming for clients with co-occurring disorders is also available, a service offered at 44.8 percent of treatment facilities in the state.


A standard program of residential treatment at San Antonio Recovery Center is 90 days. The center’s programming is based on a 12-step model and integrates holistic practices as well as dual diagnosis treatment

Clients participate in 12-step meetings and fellowship education, as well as in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) through individual and group counseling sessions. Holistic offerings include spiritual counseling, guided meditation, nutritional counseling, and yoga classes.

SARC also facilitates other medical care as needed, including medication management to address any co-occurring mental health concerns. During residential care, counseling and educational sessions are offered to clients’ loved ones.

The center’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) provides similar programming as the residential program. Additional aftercare may be facilitated through SARC’s alumni programming, which supports relapse prevention through meet-ups, 12-step meetings, recreational activities, and volunteerism.


San Antonio Recovery Center employs a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, master’s-level therapists and social workers, and licensed chemical dependency counselors.
