Summit opens Great Oaks Recovery Center  - Houston Drug Rehab Center - Addiction Treatment Center in TexasSummit Behavioral Healthcare, a leading provider of behavioral health and alcohol and drug treatment, is exited to announce the first quarter 2014 opening of Great Oaks Recovery Center, a 32-bed residential treatment facility located 60 minutes south of Houston in Egypt Texas. The facility set on 50 acres of serene historic Texas ranch land that will provide residential addiction treatment to adults.

“We’re excited to launch Great Oaks Recovery Center as our brand of premier addiction treatment in Texas and nationally,” said Karen Prince, Summit Behavioral Healthcare Chief Operating Officer. “We look forward to supporting this facility in setting the bar for excellence in care for those men and women struggling to recover from addiction.

Great Oaks Recovery Center’s approach starts with the belief that individuals can recover from lifestyles riddled with addiction. With the right tools and knowledge each client will learn to make the right choices for a healthy and meaningful life. At its programmatic core is an intense, specialized clinical addiction recovery model with a challenging holistic curriculum, focusing on maximizing each client’s whole self and the entire life system rather than addressing only the chemical use. A truly unparalleled clinical program dominates the daily therapeutic environment where each client will come to appreciate the honest hard work and reap the benefit of true recovery from the addicted self.

Great Oaks Recovery Center offers a multi-disciplinary treatment approach including medically managed detoxification, a full behavioral, medical, physical and spiritual continuum of care. The facility is made up of a 10,000-square-foot and 2,500 square-foot client facilities and offers amenities including a fitness center, swimming pool, walking path, and outdoor activity area. Great Oaks Recovery Center is staffed by highly skilled licensed & credentialed clinicians, nurses, physicians and patient advocates. Our low ratio of client to staff ensures that all clients will receive the individualized care needed to move through the issues that have plagued their escalating addiction and failed recovery attempts. Great Oaks Recovery Center puts its significant focus on treating the family as part of the overall treatment and recovery process. Family members will attend a multi-day interactive family program to learn about the disease of addiction, coping and emotional management skills in order to develop tools for their own recovery.

Kirk Kureska, EVP of Summit Behavioral Healthcare remarked “ when Summit Behavioral Healthcare set out to develop the very best residential facility in the nation we did so with one mission in mind, to create a facility that will treat the whole person and system and not focus on a single piece as the problem. At Great Oaks Recovery Center we have that facility and couldn’t be more excited and pleased ”. For more information we invite you to tour the site on our webpage at
