OUR TEAM

We know that addiction is a disease, but the good news is that it is a treatable disease. With the right tools and interventions, one can overcome and be free from alcohol and drugs. 

Having a dedicated team can make all the difference in someone's recovery beginning. The team of people at Bee Cave Recovery are committed to helping each person that walks through our door. Our person-centered and hands-on approach is what makes our program special and successful. We bring in each new member with care and compassion and develop an individualized treatment plan based on their unique strengths and needs. Our positive peer culture promotes an atmosphere of camaraderie and connectedness as we pursue new paths of recovery together. Close and lasting relationships are forged and once a part of our hive, always a part of our hive.
