We expect men to stay a minimum of 60 days. Research studies indicate this to be the most beneficial length of time for structured residential care; however we individualize the care we deliver and have had men come for shorter and longer lengths of stay. Our commitment is not to keep a man with us any longer than he needs.
Yes. Many men struggling with a primary addiction to drugs or alcohol find themselves addicted, either physically or psychologically, to any number of substances and unhealthy behaviors. These can include nicotine and caffeine, sex and pornography, over the counter medications, relationships, compulsive exercise, spending, gambling, food, work, and worry. The list can be extended. Recovery requires men to address the major addictions in their lives and to identify behaviors that can trigger relapse. Austin is fortunate to have a number of licensed therapists that specialize in helping people in recovery deal with other addictions. Our staff can make referrals when indicated.
A member of our admission’s team screens each man before coming to us. In cases that may require a referral to treatment or to a higher level of care, men will be assessed by one of our licensed clinicians. Additionally, each man receives a two-hour interview with our contracting physician who is a Board Certified in Addiction Medicine.

I tried to quit a hundred times. Sometimes I’d make it for a month, sometimes two, but I always wound up back with my drug. What I found [at Last Resort] was the answer to what I’d been searching for in recovery but couldn’t seem to find. They put it all together and they put me together too!
