Austin Recovery is one of only a handful of treatment centers in Texas offering women the opportunity to bring a child with them into treatment. When a mother does not have a safe place for her kids, a barrier is created that often keeps a woman from receiving the treatment she needs. For more than 20 years, Austin Recovery's Family House has pioneered this highly specialized form of treatment providing quality services to a mom and her child. Young children attend school during the day while toddlers are transported to a nearby day care program. Mothers then participate in a full daily schedule until the children return to be with them in the afternoon. A state grant affords women 90 days of treatment for themselves and specialized therapies for their young children. All Family House clients can participate in a six-week class on Protective Parenting taught by a licensed therapist. Family House is located on our 40-acre Hicks Family Ranch in South Austin.
