Introduction and Basic Services

Hill Country Detox is located 20 minutes outside of Austin in the small town of Buda, Texas. The facility is designed to offer residential care and an introduction to treatment for those who will transfer to a longer-term program after physical stabilization. Hill Country offers specialized detox programs for both men and women who coming off alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines or methadone. There is also a polysubstances detox program designed for those who have abused more than three substances in the last year. An emphasis is placed on co-occurring mental health and emotional issues.

Facility and Meals

Hill Country Detox is a sprawling villa surrounded by 22 acres of wildflowers and green space. Housing is separated by gender, with roughly 20 residents in total. Shared bedrooms have TVs, large beds and bright windows to let in the morning sun. The facility’s master bathroom has gothic double doors and a tiled spa-style bath alongside a spacious mirrored vanity. There is a private studio space available, but only for those with acute medical needs that preclude them from being around others (a contagious illness, for example). The guest house features a bathroom with granite countertops and a double-headed shower.

The yard features a pool and lounge areas outfitted with comfortable patio furniture, perfect for talking to the other residents. The executive chef prepares meals on-site, occasionally using fresh local seafood. Both full meals and snacks are available at any point during the day.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Because of the complex nature of detox, treatments are individualized to each client. There is a clinical and medical assessment done within the first 24 hours of admission and care is modified in response to any changes in physical, medical and emotional needs. The length of stay differs for every resident based on drug history, physical and mental health and the type of detox required—all of which is discussed during the assessment.

The withdrawal period is supervised by an on-site, 24/7 medical and clinical team and medications like Suboxone are used if necessary. Clients receive daily visits from the doctor and have a recovery advocate available who makes sure that the resident is progressing well and discusses medication changes with the doctor if necessary. After the most difficult part of detox is completed, clients begin group and individual counseling. This holistic approach sets clients on their way to healing mentally and spiritually in addition to physically.

Individual therapy sessions with a counselor and recovery specialist focus on specific personal issues as well as a discharge plan. A clinical process group offers the opportunity for feedback as well as encouragement and outside perspectives. Also included are chemical dependency education and space for questions about the recovery process. Transportation to outside 12-step or other support groups is available.

The program is designed to be continued at an external residential, Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or sober living facility. Aftercare is provided in the form of recommendations for long-term rehab programs and IOPs.

Members of staff (which are separate for both genders) include a psychiatrist, a medical doctor, nurses, LCDCs and LVNs.

Bonus Amenities

There is a golf course and pool on-site as well as optional yoga classes and regularly scheduled massage therapy.


Hill Country Detox offers a specialized service for those who need an intensive detox program before entering a longer-term treatment. Set in a calming atmosphere and with plenty of individualized support, this is a luxurious choice for detox in the Austin area.
