Rock Springs is a newly-constructed, 72-bed specialty hospital located just north of Austin. We provide inpatient and outpatient treatment services to adults suffering from mental illness and/or addiction. Our goal is to consistently deliver quality, evidence-based treatment using a program-centered approach intended to reach beyond the typical crisis stabilization model commonly used throughout the industry.
Using the latest advancements in program curriculum such as web-based COGNIT®, Good Days Ahead®, and the Hazelden® Co-Occurring Disorders Program, individualized treatment plans are developed and used to begin the journey to recovery and mental wellness.
In the Inpatient Program, patients receive detailed clinical and medical assessments, psychiatric stabilization, and rehabilitation care. This program offers the advantages of a controlled, structured environment with 24-hour nursing care and intensive treatment not available on an outpatient basis. It may include up to 10 hours per day of programming. During treatment, each patient connects with a treatment team, including a physician, nurse, primary therapist and recreational therapist. A full schedule of treatment activities addresses the biological, psychological and relationship skills needed for recovery. These activities include group therapy, fitness and wellness, education lectures and family engagement, among others.
The Partial Hospitalization Program provides structured therapy five days a week. Patients typically spend 5-6 hours per day participating in psychotherapy groups, recreational therapy and educational groups. The treatment model is evidence-based and a combination of nationally-recognized programs including the Hazelden program, motivation enhancement therapy, reality therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, twelve-step facilitation, and dialectical behavioral therapy. Recreation, art and music therapy groups are also provided. Medication management is incorporated into the PHP program.
The Intensive Outpatient Program provides structured therapy three days a week. Patients typically spend 9-15 hours per week in the program. The treatment model is evidence-based and a combination of national recognized programs including the Hazelden program, motivation enhancement therapy, reality therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, twelve step facilitation and dialectical behavioral therapy. Recreation, art and music therapy groups are also provided.
Families have the opportunity to participate in education and support groups to increase their understanding of addiction and mental illness. This process helps them learn about themselves and their roles and responsibilities in the recovery process. With this important information in hand, the family has a greater opportunity to reunite and start interacting in a more helpful and healthy manner.
A support group is offered for all patients who complete their initial treatment program. Recovery is a lifelong process and requires continued support from others.
This support group aids in the continued recovery process by allowing those who are struggling to get encouragement from those who have been in their shoes. At the same time, those who have come through struggles can help those in need and further advance their own recovery.
