According to recent studies, as well as our observation, gender-specific rehabilitation facilities for men and women are more effective than mixed gender programs. Men’s rehab programs as well as women’s rehabilitation programs have become more prevalent in recent years.
BRC Recovery can accommodate 36 men in their 90-day residential recovery program, located in Manor, TX, a small rural town east of Austin and 20 miles from Austin Bergstrom Airport.
Upon completion of the residential phase, male residents can move into BRC Recovery-owned sober living for men, a small apartment complex in Central Austin. House managers reside on the property 24/7 to provide guidance, supervision and security. Even though many local alcohol and drug rehab programs for men encourage their residents to move into Austin sober living, few actually have company-owned recovery residences.
As part of the BRC Recovery continuum of care, the aftercare monitoring program, Segue, provides 12 months of structured support with a Peer Recovery Support Specialist, who works one-on-one with the male resident as well as with his family, significant friends, and 12 Step sponsor. Throughout the Segue monitoring program, male residents continue to recover and learn how to transition back into society.
