My Recovery Story! 

"My addiction definitely got in the way of my academic career, to say the least.  In the back of my head, I always knew, like, college is supposed to be an option. But my addiction eventually got to the point where I no longer believed that those types of things were possible for me. And by the time I got sober, I was a high school dropout, no GED.  Somewhere along the way, we found out about the Collegiate Recovery Program."

Nico Doorn, Executive Director at Alpha Behavioral Health, talks about his recovery, how collegiate recovery programs helped him and the inspiration for starting Alpha Behavioral Health.

Recovery full of possibilities! 

"A lot of times people in recovery think that going to college isn't an option for them and that Being in a college environment could be detrimental to their recovery.  But what's cool about Alpha is  you have a built in safe community of people that are doing it alongside you. So you don't have to put your goals on hold.  You can continue to pursue your goals.  You can go back to school. "

Nico Doorn, Executive Director at Alpha Behavioral Health, talks about how recovery can mean pursuing goals that are important to you!

Parent Testimonial – Amy C.

I was first introduced to Alpha shortly after making the agonizing decision to put my oldest son, Drew, into rehab after his first year away at college (Summer 2018).    It was a tumultuous time, and I was scrambling for resources and answers to help my son who was on a fast track to destruction with drugs and alcohol.  It was...

Testimonial | Diana A

As the mother of a young man who spent years of his life living, and dying, with a crippling opioid addiction, and watching him attempt and then fail at one treatment program after another, I must take this moment to say that the Alpha 180 program not only gave my son his life back, but mine as well. What I’ve learned over these past years was...

Cheryl G | Testimonial

As a mother watching my son on his journey of recovery and working my own recovery program in Al-Anon and ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics), Alpha 180 has been the guide to catapult our family’s healing: My son has found his home at Alpha 180. A place where fellow young-men dealt the same hand of cards, addiction and alcoholism, come together to...

Family Testimonial | Laureen

My name is Laureen and my son, Max, is an addict. When I think back to the beginning of our recovery journey, the feelings and emotions around that time were very challenging. What I’ve learned is that sharing is healing. There’s nothing unique about our story and I have learned so much through listening to other family’s stories (in rehab and at...

Alumni Story | Andrew W

I arrived at Alpha 180 on a cold December day in 2017. This was to be an important stop on my journey, but I did not quite know it at that time. For years previous I went around and around on the treatment carousel, occasionally stopping for food and water, but never finding the enriching recovery experience I was seeking. As I took my seat in...

Alumni Story | Joe M

My name is Joseph and I am a born-and-raised Austinite. My struggles with drug and alcohol began at age twelve. Though I didn’t know it at the time, I believe I was just trying to find a place to fit in and feel okay, something that didn’t come easily due to being adopted. At the age of seventeen, I was sent to a residential treatment center in...

Alumni Story | Max W.

My name is Max and I was in Alpha 180 for a little over a year and it was quite a journey. I was forced into residential treatment in Mississippi when I was 17 years old and it was there I found out that I would be going to aftercare. I was anything but thrilled, but my parents gave me an ultimatum, so I quickly realized I would need to get...
