Letter from CEO
Ed Prettyman, PsyD – CEO
Thank you for your interest in Texas Star Recovery. I am pleased to have the opportunity to introduce you to one of the most longest standing, comprehensive and diverse recovery programs available. Texas Star Recovery has served Austin for over ten years. You can be assured that many years of experience go into all our programs, and that we will be here to assist you in the future.
Our experience allows us to draw upon many different treatment approaches, but always with a solid, evidence-based foundation. Our strong medical staff reflects our diversity. They are board accredited in addiction medicine, but emerge from backgrounds in psychiatry, family medicine, rehabilitation and pain management. Their experience as physicians and specialists in addiction medicine is extensive. Likewise, our therapy and nursing staffs reflect similar broad expertise.
The diverse backgrounds of our staff allow for a focus on the whole person. A variety of emotional, behavioral, social and physical causes may contribute to substance use issues and likewise, the consequences of use may be seen in each of these areas as well. Our multidisciplinary team meets daily to consider each of these factors and to tailor individualized and immediate interventions.
A unique feature of Texas Star Recovery is the ability to meet the often complex medical needs of our clients. In addition to the involvement of the core physician group described above, the team can draw upon consultants in internal medicine, pulmonology, physical medicine and wound care. The program is truly holistic.
Texas Star Recovery offers a broad continuum of programs and services, which allows us to provide the level of care that each client needs and to continue to provide support as they continue through their recovery.
