Alpha 180 Provides A Supportive Re-Entry Platform…
…for newly sober students returning or starting college in early recovery. To help our students achieve their goals in school and in sobriety, Alpha 180 provides three “pillars” of sober support services for our students.
Sober Student Housing
Abstinence-based, “zero tolerance” sober housing for full and part-time students only. The Alpha 180 recovery residence is located in the heart of the West Campus student housing district. We are within walking distance to both the University of Texas and Austin Community College.
Sober Fraternity House
Alpha 180 has converted the former Phi Delta Theta fraternity house at UT, Austin into a sober clubhouse where all college students in recovery are welcome… There are no dues or fees, just an expectation of abstinence and mutual respect for others. The Alpha 180 clubhouse serves as a local hang out, a study hall, a recovery meeting location and a venue for sober parties.
Clinical Support Services
Alpha 180 provides licensed clinical support services for newly sober students transitioning from treatment back to college in recovery. For those students who seek or require it, Alpha 180 provides an intensive outpatient program (IOP) which meets three days a week for three hours each day. All students will meet individually with our case manager to develop an educational plan with a timeline and steps to achieve their goals.
All Alpha 180 residents attend 12-step meetings, work with a sponsor, and participate in service work. Prior to taking on a full college course load, some students may work part-time in the Austin community. Since we believe that having fun is serious business in early recovery, we also provide recreational activities for students, such as hiking, camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, etc.
