Hacienda del Lago - Treatment Center

Hacienda del Lago is a recovery place for people with alcoholism and chemical dependency problems. Within our comfortable facilities, we have the most advanced therapeutic programs for a speedy recovery.

We are affiliated with the La Hacienda treatment center in Hunt, Texas, which has 30 years of experience in the field.

At Hacienda del Lago we are dedicated to the treatment of anyone with a desire to recover. The facilities are independent units created in a natural environment of peace and tranquility with gardens, swimming pool, jacuzzi, gymnasium and areas for physical-therapeutic activities, key to a well-planned recovery.
