Stories matter. We have a unique one at Casa Colina that we would like to share with you. A North Texas family was losing their son to drugs and alcohol. They began to lose hope that they would ever regain their son. He was heading down a dark, slippery slope with dire consequences. They reached out to Chico West for help and guidance. Because of Chico’s real experience, he was able to work with the family and make recommendations that forever changed the direction of their son’s life. They saw their son brought back to health and healing. Today, they continue to be amazed at what sobriety brings to their family and to their lives. Their painful experience with addiction led them to believe a higher purpose was in store for the land they had purchased, a sprawling ranch with over 200 acres. This land of sprawling hills, horses, and cattle is the perfect backdrop for Casa Colina.
Our hope is that Casa Colina Treatment, our “house on the hill,” in historic Waxahachie will be a home away from home...an elevated location of healing, connection, and community for men who seek freedom in sobriety.
Our program strives to identify and arrest the progression of the disease. Our 90 day residential men’s program is designed to include an immediate introduction into individual and group counseling using the Twelve Step model along with Cognitive Behavioral and Existential Treatment modalities. We are also astutely aware of the coexistence of psychiatric illness. It is our policy to treat a chemical addiction as a primary illness unless the addiction is determined to be secondary to a psychiatric disorder.
The word “values” is defined as the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something. Our team at Casa Colina embraces the personal and professional values of accountability, respect, honesty and service to others. We strive to practice these values in our own interactions while also living a disciplined life.
