The Get FIT (Families in Training) program is a preventive program aimed at averting Type II diabetes, obesity, and sedentary lifestyles for school-aged children and their families.

The program is offered throughout the academic year at various school districts, and in the summer as a one-month youth summer camp. Get FIT integrates nutrition, physical fitness, and character education to not only support the physical needs of students and their families but also facilitate the healing of the mind, body, and spirit.

Get FIT's goal is to transform the lives of people in medically underserved, rural communities. The program focuses on actively engaging community members and stakeholders in the planning, designing, and delivery of services and programs that meet the unmet needs of their community.

Get FIT is currently offered in Batesville, Cotulla, San Antonio, Santa Rosa, and Uvalde. Enrollment is free and open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in bringing Get FIT to your school or finding a program near you, call the Get FIT manager at 1-800-959-6673.

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.

Each person who seeks treatment at Lifetime Recovery receives a thorough individual screening and assessment by a licensed clinician to determine the exact nature and the most appropriate level of care.

This process also looks into issues other than chemical dependency, such as physical, social and psychological needs.

These processes help the counselors tailor treatment plans to meet each client’s individual needs.

Men only.
