Meet the Staff
Jason Powers, M.D
Chief Medical Officer
Dr. Powers joined Right Step and Spirit Lodge staff as chief medical officer in 2006. Originally trained and board certified in family medicine, Dr. Powers re-dedicated his career to helping addicts and their families after he personally faced the addiction issue in June of 2003. He is now also board certified in addiction medicine and passionately helps addicted individuals and their families embrace the healing path of recovery. He does not rigidly fit everyone into one mold, respecting that individual differences matter. He combines holistic treatment modalities with traditional therapies when treating his patients.
Dr. "P" was honored with the Sierra Tucson's Compassion Award and recognized as a Top Addiction Doctor in Houston for three years running by H Texas magazine. He will soon become a published author (Central Recovery Press) when his comprehensive book about addiction, "When The Servant Becomes The Master", is released in April 2012. He is currently secretary/treasurer of the Texas Chapter of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and is a local expert for The Partnership for a Drug Free America-when he’s not out of town lecturing or sharing his experiences elsewhere in the community. We are proud to have him on our team—not only for his engaging personality, but because he takes time to understand his patients and work with their families.

ABOUT THE RIGHT STEP HOUSTON GALLERIA
Founded in 1990, The Right Step runs more than 20 rehab facilities throughout Texas, making it one of the largest private chemical dependency treatment providers in the Southwest. This center in west Houston offers outpatient programming and aftercare for adults and adolescents, with dedicated programming for LGBT clients.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Outpatient treatment programs at The Right Step are based on the 12-Steps. Another core component of treatment is Positive Recovery, an evidence-based program developed by The Right Step’s chief medical officer. It uses daily meditation and exercises, among other techniques, to help clients discover meaning and purpose in their lives without drugs and alcohol.
In the facility’s intensive outpatient program (IOP), clients aim to create a sober routine, make changes in their thoughts and behaviors, and establish a support network. They attend programming for up to 10 hours a week, at least three days a week; sessions run in the evenings only. For both adults and adolescents, sessions include individual and group counseling, gender-specific groups, family groups, education about the nature of addiction, relapse prevention, shame reduction, stress and anger management, and spirituality awareness.
At the Galleria facility, there are two forms of specialized outpatient care. One is a program for co-occurring mental health disorders, called New Leaf. Another is for LGBT-identifying clients, who receive at least one additional individual or group session per week. This program, according to the facility’s website, understands the ways in which sexual orientation or gender identity may exacerbate substance abuse.
All graduates of the IOP program are eligible for a free, two-year aftercare program consisting of weekly groups. A 12-month continuing care program — called Javelin Continuing Care — links each graduate with a coach who checks in regularly via phone, text, and email.
Clinical staff include master’s level therapists. Additionally, the medical director of the is board certified in both family medicine and addiction medicine.
