One of the greatest fears for a person in recovery is transitioning from inpatient treatment back into “the real world”. Multiple studies conducted by The National Institutes of Health highly support the importance of high accountability sober living and the impact it has on potential relapse. With this knowledge, BRC Recovery extended our continuum of care and in 2012 purchased our first company owned sober living apartments in central Austin, Texas.
Austin, Texas offers many great resources to those in recovery. From fellowship meetings to recovery conferences, sober lounges and community centers, there are so many opportunities to participate in the recovery community. The benefits of sober living in Austin don’t stop there. Austin, TX provides a wide range of activities in and around town that you and your friends in recovery can enjoy together.
Do you like music? Well, you’re in luck. Austin is often called the “Live Music Capital of the World”, and for good reason. Austin originally adopted that nickname after the claim that it had more live music venues per capita than any other city. Whether you prefer the ambiance of a small stage, such as the Elephant Room, or a large venue like the Austin360 Amphitheater, you will be sure to find a place to enjoy a live show.
If you are more of an outdoors person, there are plenty of things for you to see and do as well in Austin. You can take a scenic hike up Mount Bonnell, where you can take in some of the best views of the city; take a refreshing swim at Barton Springs Pool; or ride a bike along the Ann & Roy Butler Hike & Bike Trail, or one of the city’s many other bicycle trails.
For those that enjoy culture, Austin has multiple music options including the Austin Symphony, the Austin Lyric Opera, and Ballet Austin. Additionally, there are several museums, including The Blanton Museum of Art, the Museum of the Weird, the Texas Military Museum, and the Austin Toy Museum among others. And for politicos, Austin is home to the LBJ Presidential Library.
Austin offers the perfect mix of arts and music, sports, culture, food and drink, and a variety of other activities that any individual can enjoy while living sober.
