Treatment in a Residential Setting Lifetime Recovery's residential center is situated on a serene and private 18.5 acre campus in rural southeast Bexar County. This provides the perfect place for those suffering with drug and alcohol abuse to receive treatment for their addictions and maintain long-term sustained sobriety.
This campus is the largest gender-specific residential care facility for men in South Texas. The goal is the restoration of the family by forming better fathers, better sons, better brothers -- better men.
