Welcome to Texas
Sunspire Health Texas is a treatment facility for men and women suffering with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders located in Princeton, TX. We take a whole-patient approach to treatment at Texas, integrating evidence-based interventions and abstinence-focused care with therapies that promote mind-body wellness in gender-separate programming. Every person who enters treatment at the facility is guaranteed patient-centered care that reflects his or her specific needs in recovery.
The charming, southwestern-style accommodations offer up to 40 patients a serene escape, tucked away on a sprawling, 46-acre estate with a private pond just a few hours north of Dallas. The facility features a swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center with full basketball and volleyball courts, as well as two personal trainers on staff. Patients become stronger physically as they heal and leave treatment with an exercise and nutrition plan to keep them healthy throughout their recovery.
There is a meditative walking labyrinth as well as low ropes course on the campus for patients to reconnect with nature as they connect with themselves. Yoga and meditation rooms give patients the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the inner workings of their mind and learn stress reduction techniques.
Our facility also promotes spiritual well-being with a pastoral counselor on staff who serves as a non-denominational spiritual advisor for patients who want to incorporate faith into their recovery. Patients also have the opportunity to attend Sunday worship services and weekly Bible study.
At Sunspire Health Texas we are proud to be one of the only rehabilitation facilities in the Dallas metropolitan area that gives patients the choice of following the traditional 12-Step method, the scientifically-backed SMART Recovery, or faith-based Celebrate Recovery for their self-help support approach, depending on which method best suits them personally.

Levels of Care at Texas
Detox is often the first step to recovery during which the substances of abuse are cleared from a patient's system under the supervision of medical professionals in a comfortable setting. Sunspire Health Heartland provides medical detoxification onsite with medical professionals supervising patients 24/7 and treating withdrawal symptoms in preparation for inpatient treatment.
Upon completion of detox, patients will begin their residential program at the Sunspire Health Texas campus with around-the-clock guidance and supervision from our clinical staff. During intake, the patient will complete a full biopsychosocial with our staff in order to design an individualized treatment plan and will meet with their primary therapist in order to begin healing.
Treatment at Texas not only focuses on evidence-based therapies and clinical interventions but also incorporates mind-body wellness for recovery. We also guide patients to healing with techniques like equine assisted therapy sessions and the ability to partake in fishing in the on-site pond to immerse in the tranquility of the countryside environment. We also guide patients to healing with techniques like tai chi and mindfulness meditation that allow patients to work on self-discovery and inner peace as methods of stress reduction, which complement the other therapies they will receive during treatment.
The daily schedule for each individual will be busy to keep patients focused on their treatment, and regular meetings with their primary therapist offer the opportunity to receive one-on-one counseling at Texas.

IOP is the last step of care at Texas. Patients have more independence and spend less time in therapy as they begin to prepare for the transition to everyday life after residential treatment while still receiving support and care based upon their individual needs. Each patient will leave Sunspire Health Texas with a comprehensive aftercare plan and will be able to participate in The Courage Program, which is a Sunspire alumni support network.

Therapies Offered at Texas
Family Program at Texas
Families are a crucial part of treatment at Sunspire Health Texas, and the families of patients going through our residential program will be included throughout the process during therapy sessions with an assigned family therapist.
In addition, once a month, families of patients are invited to Texas's Family Weekend in which loved ones will learn about the disease of addiction and its effects on the brain and body, as well as an explanation of how treatment is handled at Texas by our clinical staff. Families can begin thinking about an aftercare plan for their loved ones and also learn about their role in recovery. On the last day, patients will join their families to participate in exercises on healthy communication.
Throughout their stay, patients will have access to phones to contact their loved ones during designated times and with the permission of their primary therapist. Families will also have the possibility to visit loved ones on Sundays.Read more about Sunspire Health's Family Program
