Taylor Recovery Center Philosophy

Treating the whole person, including the mind, body, and spirit, provides individuals the best opportunity for healing and successful long-term recovery. We understand that having fun sober not only causes stress to flee, but that it motivates our clients to press forward and experience the joy and excitement of a life lived without the abuse of drugs or alcohol.

Areas of Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

  • Intensive Outpatient
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Located just east of downtown Houston, Texas, Taylor Recovery Center is an upscale, pet-friendly sober living community designed for adults struggling with a history of chemical dependency, as well as co-occurring disorders. The sober living community offers peer support, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), organized outdoor activities, and other services to support ongoing recovery for its residents.


If a resident decides to enroll into Taylor Recovery Center's intensive outpatient program, they may undergo an initial assessment to help clinicians determine individual needs. The goal of Taylor Recovery Center is to provide a luxury, supportive living environment with available resources and services to help residents maintain and enjoy living in recovery.

Taylor Recovery Center's intensive outpatient program involves nine hours of weekly treatment, which includes educational classes on coping skills and relapse prevention strategies, as well as group counseling sessions. Clients also attend weekly individual sessions with a psychiatrist and participate in acupuncture and yoga sessions. In addition, IOP offers weekly multi-family education sessions for loves ones. Taylor Recovery Center offers their IOP sessions three times a day, three days per week.

In addition to its IOP, Taylor Recovery Center also provides residents of its sober living community a range of other services to support recovery. The community holds a 12-step program and provides transportation to off-site meetings, organizes on-site yoga and meditation,plans community outings, and employs an on-site psychiatrist. In addition, clients are subject to random toxicology screenings to ensure the safety of the community.


Taylor Recovery Center employs a team of psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors, case managers, an acupuncturist, a yoga instructor, residential managers, and a culinary team.


Taylor Recovery Center is an expansive, upscale apartment complex. The recently-remodeled facility spans over 22,000 square feet and features a dog park, an outdoor meditation area with a fireplace, hammocks and seating areas, basketball court, as well as a large community activity room with large, flat screen TV, ping pong and gaming consoles.

While living in the sober living community, residents may choose from fully private or semi-private rooms in gender-specific apartments, as well as single-occupancy luxury units. Each well-appointed apartment is fully furnished and features wood floors, granite countertops, tiled kitchens, as well as flat-screen TVs with cable and Wi-Fi.

Residents also enjoy a gym membership, access to free laundry facilities, three chef-prepared meals daily, weekly housekeeping services, and transportation to recreational outings and recovery-oriented events.

My name is Carey, and spent years addicted to prescription drugs. I was diagnosed with a painful disease, and my doctor, with the best of intentions, prescribed me high doses of opiates and benzodiazepines as well as sleeping pills. I quickly became addicted. After several hospital stays, seizures, and failed attempts at recovery, I was referred to Taylor recovery Center. It is here that I was able to loosen, and eventually break the chains addiction had bound me with. Taylor Recovery Center is cutting edge and innovative in their approach to recovery. Keeping the comfort and well being of clients in mind, Taylor invites clients to bring their beloved pets with them into recovery. Needless to say, this has a tremendous thearaputic value. Our pets bring us out of ourselves, and challenge us to focus on something other than the self destruction drugs bring. A landscaped dog park, hammocks, a fire pit and free membership to a gym are just some of the amennities. If you or a loved one is in need of a focused, effective treatment program, I highly recommend Taylor recovery Center.

It looks nice from the outside & they make promises that are very inviting but once you get in it quickly goes downhill. They pick their favorites & let those people get away with anything & everything. They will force you to go to IOP 5 days a week which is a joke they charge your insurance outrageous amounts of money just to sit there and talk about nonsense. If you don’t go to group they will make you quit or threaten to kick you out. Yes it looks nice from the outside but it’s a joke once you get inside. Zero recovery happening at this facility. If you are actually trying to stay sober this is NOT the place to try.

I am very grateful for Taylor Recovery. Without Taylor I know I would have had a very difficult time staying sober coming out of rehab. I have been clean for over sixty days and am planning on going back to teaching. Taylor has given me a second chance at doing what I love and enjoying life.

Recovery is very easily to obtain living in the positive and friendly environment Taylor Recovery Center provides. You gain a structured lifestyle and skills to become a positive citizen of society.
