Blue Heron Recovery Programs

Blue Heron Recovery provides outpatient treatment services through group and individual therapy in a peaceful and supportive environment. Located at Los Patios, which sits on 18 wooded acres along Salado Creek, the fully sober campus is designed to enhance support networks and personal growth by offering a beautiful private campus, experiential and outdoor activities, and more to help support your healing.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Often referred to as a “day program”, we offer a full array of full-day luxury treatment experiences without the constraint of a residential program. You might choose to attend the PHP level after completing detox and residential treatment or directly after detox.

With 32 hours of programming available to you each week for deep therapeutic work, you can participate in process and education groups, individual therapy, and enrichment opportunities. We also offer team building and support activities like exercise programs, music and art classes, and other activities on the secluded lawn of our large, wooded campus.

Monday through Friday, 9am to 3pm

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

As you attend work and other obligations, bolster your recovery in our Intensive Outpatient Program. This is a flexible environment offering 15 hours of programming each week. Stay connected to your individual counselor while joining in process and education groups, individual therapy, and a full array of activities available on our privately owned campus.

Available daily classes for this program support recovery in your daily life, including topics like relapse prevention, family dynamics, and co-occurring disorders (depression/anxiety/trauma). These classes utilize a healthy balance of evidence-based and holistic treatment approaches tailored to meet your needs.

Monday through Friday mornings (9am-12pm)
Monday through Thursday evenings (6pm-9pm)

Outpatient Therapy

After graduating from IOP, you’ll be invited to follow-up with weekly individual sessions with your counselor and to attend experiential and educational groups as your schedule permits.

As a graduate of our programs, you are always welcome to return to campus as part of the Blue Heron community for scheduled alumni events, to participate in team building and support activities, and to engage in social activities at our privately-owned wooded property.
