Full time, daytime hours, begins immediately. This position is within our Transitional Living Program and supports our Outpatient Programs.
Opening up about addiction is tough. The system often makes seeking help seem daunting, preventing many from taking that first step. 

In this video, Nico Doorn, executive director at Alpha Behavioral Health, discusses the need for early intervention, especially for young individuals and families. 

"By integrating recovery elements into their lives sooner, we can aim to provide a more realistic and accessible path to healing.  Especially with young folks and families, if we can step in a bit earlier in the addiction journey, we can start turning things around sooner. Imagine weaving recovery into their daily lives, making it a natural part of what they're already doing. That's the kind of future we're working towards, making recovery services more accessible and realistic."

So, how can we make it easier to reach out for help? How can we make it attractive for more people to adopt a recovery lifeystyle?

Alpha Behavioral Health is seeking an experienced business development and admissions professional in the Austin area.

"When I truly found belonging, it was when I didn't have to think about who I was. I wasn't worried about who other people wanted me to be. It's just something that I do.  Instead of trying to act like myself,  I  just  am myself."

Recovery from addiction or mental health struggles, can be one of the most challenging times for a teenager or young adult. Even when they do have all the support they need, it is not an easy process to explore and understand what's happening within themselves. Making things complex is the fact that recovery process can be different for different people. 

In this video, Drew, an Alpha Behavioural Health alumnus who graduated college while at Alpha and also worked with us for some time, talks about what the recovery process meant to him, what he learnt about himself, and how he perceived the challenges that recovery life style brought to him and his community of peers.

Family needs recovery too! 

Often as communities, we focus a lot on the individual's recovery from addiction. But an important part of this journey often gets forgotten - the family!

Reflecting on his experiences as a student in recovery, Drew who graduated college while at Alpha, underlines why families require recovery focus as much as young addicts do.

"Getting to have  a structured environment where, the clinician communicates with the family about, this is what your son is doing, this is what you need to be working on, and let us have your own journey, so that you can heal on your own, too, is really important."

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...
