Your Recovery Support System
Planning: At The Last Resort, discharge planning begins on admission. We know recovery support will be needed when a man returns to the community. But maybe more importantly, by the time a man is ready to leave our care, he’s come to recognize and accept that need for himself.
We work hard to help our men accept ongoing help in recovery.
Referrals: Upon program completion, it’s best for some men to return to their homes and families. In these cases we provide direct referrals to aftercare support groups and specialty counselors both within Texas as well as from around the country. When a man finds himself in need of a more structured setting, our staff helps him and his family explore affordable options at sober homes and other transitional living facilities.
Sometimes it benefits a man to move away from his present geographic location when it poses a serious threat of relapse. In these cases, we encourage him to choose recovery outside his old community. Many of the men coming to us from all around the country choose Austin as their new recovery residence while some who have lived here all their lives may choose to go elsewhere to continue their recovery journey. The Last Resort maintains referral arrangements with several Austin area recovery homes and provides transportation for our residents to do on-site inspections and in-house interviews. Likewise, we maintain a list of out of area facilities throughout the United States.
Employment and Education Support: A Human Resource professional helps each of our men to assess their occupational future. He provides guidance with resume development and helps devise realistic employment strategies. Additionally, The Last Resort maintains close ties with the University of Texas Students in Recovery, Austin Community College, Texas State University and other area institutions of higher education.
The Last Resort Alumni Association: Every man successfully completing his course of care with us is encouraged to stay connected to through LRAA, our growing Alumni Association. With weekly Alumni accountability groups your loved one will stay connected with The Last Resort after his 90-day stay at The Last Resort.
