Sovereign Health Addiction, Dual Diagnosis, and Mental Health Treatment Programs Philosophy

Like all of our treatment centers, Sovereign Health of Texas combines traditional treatment with holistic therapies, such as yoga and equine therapy. Licensed by the State of Texas, we offer residential and intensive outpatient treatment services as well as detoxification for men and women who are dealing with addiction and co-occurring psychiatric disorders.

Nestled along Franklin Mountains State Park, patients will receive individual, couples and family therapy, as well as personalized treatment plans for the best approach possible.

In addition, Sovereign Health of Texas offers treatment for both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking patients. Previous studies have suggested that the nation’s Spanish-speaking population is often unable to access mental health care services in the U.S. due to language barriers.

Areas of Specialization

  • 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.

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Facility Highlights

Individual, family and group psychotherapy

Nutrition and lifestyle management

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
