The Any Length Retreat is located just north of Austin Texas on 5 acres. Any Length is an affordable alternative to recovery centers. We have a non-clinical model that empowers men who have not had success in staying sober on their power or have tried countless other methods to achieve recovery and have failed to remain abstinent. The Any Length Retreat is not a substitute for medical, psychotherapy, and clinical treatment nor do we offer any clinical or psychiatric services. We cater to men who are willing to believe that they are alcoholic/addict and take the necessary actions to recover, live sober, and become productive members of society.
ABOUT ANY LENGTH RETREAT
Located in Pflugerville, Texas, in a one-floor cobblestone building surrounded by trees and patches of grass, Any Length Retreat for Men in Pflugerville is one of three Any Length recovery centers for men 18 years or older seeking to recover from addiction. The retreat does not offer any medical or clinical treatment or psychotherapy. Treatment is based on the 12-steps model**. The retreat does offer individual and group support sessions. Detox is not available at the center.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To gain admission to Any Length Retreat, potential clients must be sober, drug-free, and able to remain abstinent, as well as psychologically and medically stable. Any Length’s treatment philosophy emphasizes regaining mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. The website emphasizes the belief that clients’ addictions are not their problems but solutions to deeper problems they have, and solving those problems leads to addiction recovery.
Any Length Retreat’s retreats are based on the 12-Steps principles and last two, four, or eight weeks. During their stay, clients engage in individual and group support sessions and build community with fellow clients and the larger community. The two-week program, named “Vicious Cycle,” is an intensive program to help clients identify what’s blocking their recovery. The four-week program, “Roots and Branch,” looks at the reasons why clients partake in substance abuse. The eight-week program, “Road to Reconstruction,” helps clients discover problems within themselves besides their substance abuse, although it is not a substitute for clinical treatment.
After completing a retreat, clients may enter Any Length’s recovery residence, which requires a commitment of 120 days, but can last four to six months. Clients continue undergoing the 12-steps model of treatment and begin following a schedule with activities including morning prayer and meditation, a weekly book study house meetings, and independent living skills such as chores and time management. Clients are also encouraged to enroll in school, work full-time, and/or volunteer in the community.
After completing the recovery residence, clients may enter Any Length’s Graduate House, although sparse details are given on how the Graduate House program differs from programs prior to it.
Any Length’s founder is a Nationally Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist (PRSS) and Advance Relapse Prevention Specialist. Another staff employee is also PRSS-certified. Any Length’s website states that staff members have recovered from addiction themselves. The 17 individuals polled to date by Best-rehabs.com rated the staff’s level of training and experience an average 4.58 out of five stars.
