Santé Center Residential Treatment Programs

Santé Center for Healing is situated on a beautiful hilltop in rural Argyle, Texas, which is approximately 30 miles north of Dallas/Fort Worth. The adults that are treated here suffer from addictive disorders including chemical dependency and process addiction.

Sante Center Office
Santé understands that there are many challenges on the road to recovery and that addiction must be treated one step at a time. Our Intake and Admissions Counselors are qualified and knowledgeable of the specifics of treatment. Their goal is to make the admission process as smooth as possible for the patient, family and referent.

Our main goal is for our patients to live a life in recovery. They learn to be aware of their issues and gain the skills to resolve them. They will know how to prevent relapses, and live without the feelings of shame or guilt that often accompany their diagnosis.

The professionals at Santé specialize in working with individuals affected by any addictive disorder; chemical or process. More specifically, Santé specializes in treating dual diagnoses and poly-addictions. With meaningful guidelines and principles in place Santé refuses to give up on any patient, no matter how difficult.


My truth: I love and adore each of you for everything you’ve done for me.  You’ve shown me what it means to be in recovery. And not lies that life is always going to be “smiles and sunshine” or that I can be “sober” and keep lying or acting out, but real recovery.  You’ve shown me how to show my authentic self, and that it is accepted, the “good” and with the mistakes I make and will make.  I value the honest truth that was reflected to me here, and that people cared enough not to buy into my addict behavior again.  Even when I was sober before, I had so many behaviors I thought I would never break.  Santé’ helped me to see the reasoning behind it, why I do it and how to work through it.”
