Life Management Resources – Plano Treatment Facility

Life Management Resources – Plano Treatment Facility


For over 17 years, Life Management Resources (LMR) has operated three facilities northeast of Dallas, Texas, for the treatment of adults and adolescents, both men and women, with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The Plano facility offers intensive outpatient (IOP), supportive outpatient, and aftercare programs for adults and adolescents ages 17 and up. There is also a 12-hour educational program for driving while intoxicated offenders. Detoxification services are not available at this facility.


Treatment at Life Management Resources focuses on the disease model of addiction and addresses historical and environmental factors inhibiting recovery, including past trauma. Upon intake, clients work with counselors to develop an individualized treatment plan that encourages positive growth in the client and the client’s family.

The IOP treatment programs utilizes a mixture of co-ed and gendered groups, as well as weekly individual therapy sessions. Group therapy sessions meet three times a week for the eight week program duration. Family members are encouraged to participate in their loved one’s treatment with weekly family therapy groups.

Clients needing additional treatment after the intensive outpatient program can enroll in the Supportive Outpatient Program (SOP), which includes group therapy twice a week and individual therapy twice a month. Clients develop a relapse prevention plan and participate in aftercare programming for an additional 12 months after the completion of the SOP.

Treatment programs involve the 12-steps, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and motivational interviewing. Group therapy includes topics such as spirituality, relapse prevention, anger management, stress management, goal setting, self-esteem building, dealing with grief and resentment, and conflict resolution. In addition, clients can participate in meditation and art therapy.


Life Management Resources is led by a doctorate level psychologist. Treatment staff at the Plano facility include licensed professional counselors, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed chemical dependency counselors.


At the time of this writing, the sole alum polled by to date posted an overwhelmingly positive review, rating the facility four and five out of five stars in 15 different metrics. This includes five stars for treatment effectiveness, family participation, and the staff’s level of training and experience.

Alum D. commented on the quality of group therapy and counselor support. “They retrain you from the ground up again basically and provide you with life management training to go back into the world again on your own two feet again without drugs or alcohol,” D. wrote.

On third-party sites, response to Life Management Resources is mostly positive. On Google, two reviewers to date rated the facility a perfect five stars.[1] On CiteHealth, three anonymous individuals to date gave the facility one, three, and five out of five stars.[2] The positive reviewer praised the facility for using methods outside of the 12 Steps, but the mixed reviewer complained of the facility’s reliance on interns, and the negative reviewer lambasted the facility, writing: “Save yourselves the trouble and go to a REAL treatment center with kind, caring, educated people who you can trust,” the individual wrote.


One mixed review from a loved one was available at the time of this writing. In a survey, the anonymous loved one rated treatment effectiveness, holistic offerings, and counseling options four out of five stars but gave only two stars for family participation. They wrote: “Well rounded staff Confusing program structure. Very well run facility.”

This facility offers payment plans and sliding scale fees to assist clients who cannot afford the full cost of treatment. The DWI Program costs $75.

  • The give you way to fill the void from the loss of addiction. In other words, they retrain you from the ground up again basically and provide you with life management training to go back into the world again on your own two feet again without drugs or alcohol. Group sessions are the best. It is simply an open floor discussion with boundaries. No glorification. No crosstalk. No demeaning. From there, everyone has a chance to speak their mind and say whatever they feel. It really made a huge impact on so many of us how we all made it in that room. One of the counselors said "One way or another you all made it here for a reason, and that we should be so proud of ourselves for being there." NONE of us could understand why she would say that since none of us thought we should be proud of ourselves, but by the time we left we did. :) I have been clean and sober for over 3 months now and plan on staying that way. I am about to enter college for the first time in my life as a 40 year old man and I feel the best I have ever felt in a very long time. I suppose they get my vote. Thank you for listening to my story. Sincerely, D
