About Charlies Place Recovery Center

About Charlies Place Recovery Center

Charlies Place Recovery Center is located in Corpus Christi, Texas, a coastal city in the South Texas region. Corpus Christi, nicknamed the “Sparkling City by the Sea,” is an apt depiction of the quiet, peaceful setting that surrounds Charlies Place.

First established in 1965, the Charlies Place Recovery Center exists as the largest non-profit residential detox treatment center in South Texas. Facility staff are licensed, experienced and dedicated to helping people take back their lives from the effects of drug and alcohol addiction.

Our residential detox treatment center offers the types of supports you’ll need to make it through the emotional and physical discomfort that detox brings. In addition, our staff will help you develop a recovery plan that enables you to maintain a substance-free existence for the long-term.

If you’re looking for a detox treatment program in the Corpus Christi area, Charlies Place Recovery Center can help.

Treatment Options

Alcohol, opiates, stimulants and all forms of addictive substances have one thing in common: an ability to change how the brain and body works. After a certain point, these changes take on a life of their own. Once this happens, there’s a very real need for professional treatment help.

Charlies Place Recovery Center’s residential detoxification program provides the the types of medical and emotional supports needed to help you get an out-of-control drug (or alcohol) problem under control. A residential setting promotes structure and stability, unlike the chaos and confusion that comes with an addiction lifestyle.

Your course of treatment will be based on information gathered during the initial evaluation and testing stage upon entering the program. Other benefits of our residential detoxification program include:

  • Round-the-clock monitoring and supervision
  • Medication treatments to relieve withdrawal discomfort
  • Individual and group therapies
  • Support groups


A quality detox program not only works to help you stop abusing substances, but also provides you with the tools needed to maintain continued abstinence from substance abuse. In the most severe of cases, other serious problems, such as depression or diabetes can develop as a result of ongoing drug or alcohol abuse. Under these conditions, there’s a real need for added treatment supports or else these conditions will weaken your ability to maintain a substance-free lifestyle.

Charlies Place Recovery Center makes it a point to address any areas of need that threaten your ongoing success in recovery. Depending on your situation, added treatment supports may include:

  • Treatment for any co-occurring medical problems
  • Mental health care
  • Drug education and counseling
  • Relapse prevention training

While a residential program does require living at the facility for the duration of treatment, this provision provides you with the time and space needed to focus on getting well. For people coming off chronic or long-term addiction problems, it’s all but impossible to stop using without the level of structure and support a residential program provides.


Upon admission to Charlies Place Recovery Center, certain policy guidelines must be followed to help maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone involved. Time spent in residential detox is a highly focused and intense process of healing and growth that requires a stable, structured environment. Policy rules work to create this type of atmosphere during your treatment stay.

Policy guidelines include the following:

  • Must provide proper identification
  • Initial urine screening
  • Participate in a medical assessment interview
  • Personal items will be inspected
  • No alcohol or drugs on the premises

If you’ve been struggling with drug abuse or alcoholism for a while now and are unable to stop using on your own, our residential detox program can provide the supports you need to make it through this critical first stage of recovery. For more information on program options, call our helpline at 800-483-2193(Who Answers?).

    This is the best place to detox and recover! The detox program at Charlie’s Place couldn’t have been more supportive. I never felt like my needs weren’t being met. If anything, I got more care than I needed! When I completed detox, the journey was just beginning. I finally felt like I could look towards the future with a clear head. The therapies gave me so many amazing tools to avoid relapse. I even met a few cool people during support groups that I still talk to. The staff made sure I had an action plan before I left so I could continue recovering and not fall back into old ways. I just can’t say enough good things about Charlie’s Place Recovery Center. They saved my life and they can save yours too!
