Treatment Center Setting
Sunspire Health Texas Philosophy
Sunspire Health Texas is located in Princeton, Texas, north of Dallas on 43 acres of beautiful land, providing a serene setting for adult men and women suffering with substance use and co-occurring disorders. The residential treatment facility offers a full continuum of care including on-site medical detox, residential, and outpatient services. The cozy, southwestern-style facility boasts an expanse of land that offers patients the tranquil splendor of peace and serenity, while offering a modern environment and all of the amenities one could need to support their journey to recovery.
Areas of Specialization
12-Step, SMART & Celebrate Recovery
While the 12-Step self-help approach to recovery is widely utilized in Texas, this approach does not suit everyone in treatment for addiction. Sunspire Health Texas offers SMART Recovery and Celebrate Recovery as two alternatives, one based in science and the other based in Christian-faith. Having options for all treatment needs and lifestyles is an important aspect of Sunspire Health's individualized approach to care.
Personal Trainers & Mind-Body Wellness
With a state-of-the-art fitness center and gym, two personal trainers, and a dietitian on staff, patients at Sunspire Health Texas will be able to develop an exercise regimen and dietary plan with one-on-one sessions to address their individual nutritional and fitness needs. Having an exercise routine in place after treatment can be lifesaving as it keeps people healthy and focused on healing while providing an outlet to deal with stressors and triggers they may encounter in day-to-day life.
Sunspire Health Texas offers spiritual support for patients who wish to incorporate their religious beliefs into their treatment program. Many people find strength in their faith and benefit from having their religious practice go hand-in-hand with recovery. Texas offers spiritual support through the services of a pastoral counselor who can guide patients spiritually whether Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish. There are two hours of worship on Sunday and Bible study offered Monday and Wednesday nights, but the pastoral counselor will also offer non-denominational spiritual groups.
Internet Addiction Support
For many patients, a co-occurring addiction to internet in the form of social media, shopping, gambling, online infidelity, pornography, or an addiction to electronic devices (cell phones) in general, will manifest during treatment for a substance use disorder. Sunspire Health Texas has a clinical team who are experienced in helping patients address these co-occurring process addictions for a whole-patient approach to treatment.
Sexual Trauma/Sex Addiction
With a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist on staff, Sunspire Health Texas is able to address a history of sexual trauma or sex addiction that may be an underlying cause of a substance use disorder.
Caters to the Needs of Executives and Professionals in Recovery
Texas is able to cater to the needs of executives, professionals, and business owners in treatment who may need to check work emails and attend meetings during treatment in order to stay on track in their work. This outside contact must be approved by the clinical team and the patient's primary therapist, but Texas will absolutely work with patients so that they may maintain their livelihood even in treatment.
Detox is often the first level of a treatment plan. This period of no drug use is important for the patient to reach a stable state of mind and body to begin addiction treatment. Our clinical staff will guide and support the patient throughout the entire process.
During residential treatment patients live onsite in housing with access to care from clinical staff 24/7. Patients have a full schedule of individual and group therapies according to their unique treatment plan, preparing them for life in recovery.
To transition from residential treatment to life in recovery, patients go through a progression of care until reaching IOP. Patients will receive ongoing care at the Palm Desert IOP while living in sober housing to adjust to every day life after treatment.
Throughout treatment patients will work with a Discharge Planner and the clinical team develop a comprehensive aftercare plan that will ensure a successful transition from residential treatment to a life in recovery. All patients who receive care at Sunspire Health will join our nationwide alumni network, giving them access to a support group after treatment.
At every Sunspire Health facility patients will receive treatment that is individualized to their unique needs and diverse lifestyles. Ongoing assessments allow the treatment to adapt and evolve as the patient progresses.
Each patient will have a dedicated Family Therapist with a weekly session focused on issues related to the family, including them throughout the treatment process. Texas hosts an Intensive Family Weekend to educate the patient’s loved ones on the biology of addiction and their role in recovery with the patient joining on the last two days.
Sunspire Health utilizes evidence-based treatment methods, meaning that the treatment modalities and therapies are based on clinical evidence and proven success in guiding patients to heal and recover. Patients who would benefit from Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) will receive medications that are proven to aid patients in achieving sobriety.
In addition to individual and group therapies that are based in psychotherapy methods like CBT and DBT, patients will learn to apply new coping skills through experiential therapies like meditative hikes, yoga, fitness programs, nutrition education, and recreation activities that show patients how to find hope and how to prosper in recovery.

ABOUT SUNSPIRE HEALTH TEXAS
Sunspire Health Texas, formerly a Caron treatment center, provides a continuum of treatment services for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The Princeton location, one of multiple facilities within a national network, offers on-site detox, residential care, partial hospitalization (PHP), and intensive outpatient (OP) treatment. Programming for process addictions, including gambling and sex, is also available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Many clients begin their stay with a one to two-week period of detox. Detox is administered on-site and medically supervised by nurses and doctors who monitor vital signs and prescribe medication as needed.
Once stabilized, clients transition to residential treatment, the duration of which is between 30 and 90 days. During this time, clients follow an individualized treatment plan that includes one-on-one counseling, group therapy, and family therapy. Counseling staff use a variety of treatment modalities, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Clients are introduced to 12-step and SMART Recovery models, and participate in psychoeducational workshops.
Holistic treatment is also utilized. Clients may learn yoga and meditation and participate in equine therapy and mindful fishing at a nearby pond. Spiritual support, nutrition therapy, and relapse prevention may also be utilized. Optional Sunday worship and weekly Bible study is also offered.
The center’s PHP is typically used as step-down treatment from residential treatment. Clients attend sessions between five and seven days a week for six to eight hours, returning to their homes in the evening. IOP treatment, which often follows PHP, is less time-intensive. Clients often attend three- to four-hour sessions three to five times a week in this form of aftercare.
Sunspire Health Texas maintains a staff-to-client ratio of 1:4. The interdisciplinary treatment team consists of physicians, nurses, master’s level therapists, licensed addiction counselors, a pastoral counselor, and other mental health professionals.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The 28,000 square-foot-facility is set on 43 acres of secluded Texas countryside. The rehab accommodates up to 40 residents, and clients stay in simply furnished bedrooms. The residence also features airy communal areas and outdoor lounge spaces, and clients have access to an indoor basketball court and a fitness center equipped with cardiovascular and weight training equipment as well as a swimming pool. There is also a low ropes course and meditation rooms.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, most of the 23 alumni polled by Rehabs.com had positive things to say about their experiences. Nearly all alumni who provided high ratings noted the quality of the center’s staff, which they characterized as “excellent” and “highly skilled.”
“The staff truly cared and worked hard to supply the tools to help me succeed in my journey outside their 4 walls. The therapists and counselors were amazing. (Tough at times but it was very fitting and much needed),” Tracy wrote in a representative review. Multiple alumni were impressed with the grounds and the living conditions. “This facility is so picturesque!” Pat wrote.
One alum found the programming to be too reliant upon 12-step principles. “Very AA based, which can seem both depressing (listening to endless horror stories), and brainwashing. I knew going in it was AA based, but expected that to be just one aspect of the program. Very little private counselor time,” J.W. wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
To date, five loved ones polled by Rehabs.com shared varying perspectives. D.M. was disappointed in the program’s level of family involvement. “Family is not wanted or apparently needed for treatment,” they wrote. D.S., also a loved one, felt that the facility was too focused on money. “I was lied 2 at every turn they seem 2 b all about the money do not trust 3 staff members in particular what a mistake...if u love your child go somewhere else,” they wrote.
More positive feedback was also given. "We witnessed a tremendous change in him for the better, from an addict in denial to an an addict in recovery. The fact that most of the staff are in recovery made it much easier for him to relate to the staff, as they understood first-hand his experiences," wrote S.S. Offering some criticism, they added, "The only complaint I have is that they appear to be a bit understaffed and hence at times unorganized."
Sunspire Health Texas accepts plans from many private insurance companies, including Aetna, Cigna, Anthem, and Value Options. Clients may also access financing options through the center’s partnership with American Healthcare Lending.
