This might be your first addiction treatment experience; it’s not ours. For over 25 years located in Argyle, Texas, Santé Center for Healing has helped thousands of individuals overcome addictive behaviors and take the first steps to life-changing sobriety and life-affirming recovery.

Many people searching for addiction treatment are curious about the long-term effectiveness of our programs. And though there is no industry standard on how to gage a “success rate”, we can tell you how Santé measures for success.  

Excellence is a daily and intentional journey, not a destination. Santé utilizes many channels for listening for improvement and celebrating successes – Client Satisfaction Survey (at discharge), Alumni Follow-up Survey (distributed three times within the first year of discharge), Professional Satisfaction Survey, and an Employee Satisfaction Survey, just to name a few. 

Listening to clients and alumni is mission-critical, and our Client Satisfaction Survey and Alumni Follow-Up Surveys prove that our methods work.

Highlights from this Client Follow-Up Survey:

  • 100% were still in recovery at 180 days
  • 79% were still in recovery at 60 days
  • 75% were still in recovery at 365 days

Highlights from this Client Satisfaction Survey:

The percentage of participants in this survey that said they were “very” or “mostly satisfied” in the following categories were:

  • 100% Staff
  • 100% Individual sessions with primary therapist
  • 96% Treatment plan
  • 96% Primary therapist
  • 96% Medical provider
  • 96% Nurses

“Santé – the only right choice that ever mattered.”

Getting Sober and Staying Sober, Our Alumni Follow-Up Survey

Sobriety isn’t a destination: it’s a life-long journey. In fact, getting through our multiple levels of addiction treatment services is just the start. Through integrated therapy approaches, we give clients the tools to live a productive post-residential treatment life.

Though the graphic above showcases numbers and percentages, they each represent individuals with unique stories and life experiences. Some of the associated narrative and additional contents on our most Alumni Follow-Up Surveys have included:

  • Jason [case manager/primary therapist] was great 
  • Santé was a turning point in my life and recovery journey. I greatly valued that time and would do it all over again and will if needed in the future.
  • My marriage is doing great and it’s thanks in a very large part to what I learned at Santé from Jason [case manager/primary therapist], the staff and my fellow attendees.
  • Santé saved my life!!
  • I will always be grateful for Sante. Also, I believe the neurofeedback was a game changer for me. Of course, the treatment I received from Shelley [case manager/primary therapist] & all Sante staff was excellent…
  • [My case manager] was the best counselor I have ever had! She truly helped me change my outlook on life and what it can become! 
  • I have been active in my recovery community. Giving my testimony to many and even total strangers has led to almost daily conversation on treatment and / or recovery. It’s because of that I have remained strong. I haven’t felt the urges to relapse. I still study my course work I completed at Santé, also review my artwork and journals. I have stayed close to my wife and community. Also have distanced myself from those who could harm or use me. I have had negative and emotional experiences in groups like AA. I have a hard time with just listening to the sad stories all day. I’ve chose a path that helps me focus on the positive recovery aspects. I just feel too much and it works.
  • Saved my life 
  • Miss Santé! Amazing staff! Keep it up!
  • Santé Center changed my life!
  • Changed my life forever.
  • My experience with Santé was exceptional.

While these Alumni Follow-Up survey numbers comments speak highly of our compassionate staff and evidence-based programs, we take the most pride in witnessing people who sought help succeed in sobriety. And we have the opportunity to continue the recovery journey together with Santé’s “Open Road” Alumni Program.

“This is a very important place…and it was a very important experience here.”

Administered while discharge planning, our Client Satisfaction survey also reveals how prepared clients are due to their clinical interactions, medical interventions, family therapy, peer support and, last but not least, the discharge process. At Santé Center for Healing, our discharge process sets you up for post-treatment success. We don’t just say “goodbye.” We invite individuals into our prestigious alumni program, look at aftercare options, and even take a look to see if any additional levels of care would be beneficial towards long-term recovery.

“Felt so happy to see the same gate, though I am in such a totally different place. Though it felt familiar, I found myself reflecting on all that has changed for me (recovery, marriage saved, practicing medicine again, having children, financially stable, etc.) since I was here.”
