Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 11, 2016 -- Recovery Unplugged® Treatment Center, the Fort Lauderdale, Florida drug rehabilitation facility that uses a unique, individualized, music-based approach to creating long-term recovery, will mark the opening of an Austin, Texas facility on August 18th with an event featuring Aerosmith’s Joey Kramer. Kramer is a supporter of addiction rehabilitation efforts and causes.
The number of patients who have completed the Recovery Unplugged® program and are still sober exceeds three times the national average for addicts who have completed traditional rehab programs. Nova Southeastern University is now studying the Recovery Unplugged® program, with research results scheduled for release by year’s end. Their focus group research bears out the facility’s low 9% AMA rate – which describes the number of patients who leave treatment before completion. This compares to the national average of 39%. “More of our clients stay in treatment because, as focus group research tells us – they like being in our program, which is not always the case elsewhere. Also, more therapy equals better results,” said Paul Pellinger, Recovery Unplugged®’s Director of Strategic Recovery.
The medical staff at Recovery Unplugged® – Texas is led by Carlos F. Tirado, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.B.A.M.
Dr. Tirado is a recognized leader in the field of addiction medicine who has held medical director positions at community based non-profit and private for-profit residential, intensive outpatient, outpatient and opioid treatment programs. Recovery Unplugged® – Texas offers its own detoxification facility and in-patient residential treatment.
The August 18th event at Recovery Unplugged® – Texas will begin at 1PM and feature remarks by Recovery Unplugged®’s Director of Strategic Recovery Paul Pellinger, Dr. Tirado and Joey Kramer. A performance by Mr. Kramer and other special guests is scheduled to follow.
