Information about Sober Living in Austin, Texas

Frequently Asked Questions about Halfway Houses Austin TX




How are recovery houses certified? A very small percentage of recovery houses meet certification standards at the state (Texas Recovery Oriented Housing Network – TROHN) and national level (National Alliance of Recovery Residences – NARR). Over 45 requirements are considered to meet both of these certification standards.

How does Westlake Recovery exceed certification standards? Westlake Recovery exceeds the highest quality standards and provides the highest quality, upscale sober living environments in the state of Texas at our men’s and women’s house by providing an ample amount of space in some of the largest, high-end sober living environments in Texas! We provide the highest quality and most extensive amount of proven recovery based services in Texas within a rate that’s comparable to any luxury sober living home in the entire United States.


What should I look for in a recovery house? If you are coming from a treatment center (which could range between $20,000 – $120,000 per month), seeking a high quality recovery house that provides extensive support for a longer period of time helps maintain this expensive investment in sobriety. Our monthly sober living price is equivalent to approximately one day or less in rehab, yet our services and support are considered exceptional and our success rates are higher than almost all short-term rehabs. Even if you have never been to a treatment center, the extensive support and services our recovery house provides may be all you need for your recovery.
