ABOUT WEST TEXAS COUNSELING AND REHABILITATION PROGRAM OF MIDLAND
Founded in the mid 1980s, West Texas Counseling and Rehabilitation (WTCR) operates nine outpatient facilities that provide medication-assisted addiction treatment, in Amarillo, Dallas, Garland, Irving, Midland, Odessa, Plano, San Angelo, and Temple. The Midland facility is located in the center of the West Texas town, and provides services to adults aged 18+.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The center’s offerings boil down to outpatient detox, maintenance, and counseling, which encompasses individual and group therapy as well as education about substance abuse and infectious diseases, and referrals to appropriate further resources. All services are supported by medication, however, the center’s website does not specify which medications are used.
The goal of treatment at WTCR centers is to get the addiction down to a manageable level of medical maintenance, such that clients can work, support a family, and be constructive members of society. For some clients, medical circumstances make medication-free living a preferable goal; WTCR pledges to help these clients achieve this goal, in appropriate cases.
The facility is open on Monday to Saturday mornings, and closed on Sundays.
WTCR was founded by an MD, though there is currently no information provided by the facility regarding treatment staff at the Midland facility. The single individual polled by Best-rehabs.com to date, a staffer, gave the facility five out of five stars for its staff’s level of training and experience.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Best-rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews directly from alumni of WTCR Midland, and secondary sites yielded limited but positive feedback, with a few notes of complaint, at the time of this writing: the center had two four-star ratings, one on Google and one on YellowPages.com.  Only one of these reviewers left any accompanying commentary; they described numerous frustrations with the facility, including long wait times at the clinic disorganization, and very long wait times to be admitted to treatment. However, the reviewer concluded: “While I have so many complaints about WTCR, I must say that this clinic is truly a life-saver for me and many others. It’s much safer than IV heroin, and at $65 a week, it’s definitely much cheaper. I do think there are many things that could be done to improve the clinic, but as it stands now, regardless of the negative factors, this clinic is still a positive, efficient way to quit heroin or prescription painkillers.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
“Strengths:addiction recovery Weakness:mental heath,” was the appraisal of the single staffer polled by Best-rehabs.com to date. The reviewer gave the facility two stars for its ability to treat, four stars for its holistic offerings, and five stars for its treatment effectiveness, family participation, and counseling options.
There is currently no information provided on WTCR’s website regarding its costs, however, the single individual polled by Best-rehabs.com to date, a staffer, gave the facility three out of five stars for its affordability.
