The Lotus Recovery Plan
About Lotus Recovery
Residents start every day with group morning meditation and chores. Our live-in house manager wakes up every morning to support residents throughout their day and get them ready for their day. Our Phase 1 residents are enrolled in in-house programming. After programming, residents come home and have lunch and productive free time. We also have in-house big book study on Wednesdays and Fridays, where someone comes in to share their experience, strength and hope with our residents. New residents get assistance from staff with daily tasks, such as opening bank accounts, running errands, refilling medications, job searching, or school enrollment. Residents that are in Phase 2 and Phase 3 are either working, going to school, or volunteering during the day.
As the afternoon progresses, residents return home. Most evenings, the community goes to a 12-Step meeting together, or attend a 12 step meeting on zoom. Once a week on Sundays, we have an accountability group that we hold at the house for the residents.
We love having community outings! We prove to our residents that becoming sober is fun. We enjoy organizing games, going to the gym together, watching movies, and planning trips out in the community.
As residents wind down for the night, our live-in house manager is onsite to spend time with everyone and provide support at night for the residents.
Residents will get together at the end of the day to do “nightlys”, reflecting on themselves, and share things about their day.
Weekends bring some extra free time for everyone and residents like to relax and spend time running errands, going hiking and spending time outdoors or at Barton Springs. We believe that service is vital for successful recovery. As such, we will take trips to local nonprofits and volunteer as a community.

What We Offer
Totally Personalized Care
Lotus Recovery is a beautiful, well-appointed home in the West Campus area of Austin. We are walking distance to parks, outdoor activities, supermarkets, and other conveniences.
We provide our residents with the life skills and relapse prevention skills they need to live a sober and independent lifestyle. We assist with job placement and other case management services that are critical to helping our residents gradually transition back into an independent life.
Sober Coaching & Case Management
Unique to other recovery residences, we offer in-house sober coaching and case management resources. We started Lotus with the goal to provide a more comprehensive set of services than the standard typically delivered by other sober living and recovery residences.
HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT
A Well Rounded Program For Success
Lotus' focus on case management means simply that we help clients get services they need to accelerate their recovery and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
We understand the importance of family, social networks, and community on our resident's healing.
Our case managers advocate for all kinds of assistance, including helping residents work treatment plan goals and find a sponsor and support group meetings that fit the client’s needs.
We work on resume creation and assist residents with job applications and interview preparation, serving as a point of contact for the residents loved ones by helping residents cultivate the life skills necessary for a seamless transition back into society.
WHY CASE MANAGEMENT IS IMPORTANT
We make sure to align services and resources that fit our resident's needs, rather than trying to make our residents fit the services. In comparison to individual therapy, our team focuses on resource acquisition and helping address the unique needs of our residents who are in early recovery or healing from trauma.
On top of Lotus' case management focus, we also offer sober coaching and help our residents develop coping mechanisms. Our team works to address challenges and help residents stay on track with their sobriety and healing.
