Recovery Alliance

3501 Hueco Avenue, El Paso, Texas, 79903
The Recovery Alliance sees recovery as a life affirming process that can be fostered by recovery support services. These services, which are described and delivered by peers in the recovery community, are alcohol and drug free social and recreational activities, informational workshops, skills development and training, career and business planning, parenting classes, education and housing. For the most part the Alliance provides these services, and hosts others such as mutual support groups from its recovery community center, or from Casa Vida de Salud, its 37-bed residential recovery center in central El Paso.

  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
