Children often suffer the most from another’s substance abuse. To help those children who are affected by parents, family members, and caretakers who struggle with alcohol, drugs, and other compulsive behaviors, we provide the following services at our Houston location:

Children’s Clinical Services – This program provides case management, counseling and social services to children from birth to 20 years of age who have been exposed to addictive drugs, nicotine, alcohol, sexually-transmitted diseases and/or HIV during pregnancy, with extension of services to their families. Our children’s services include:

  • Assessments
  • Play Therapy
  • Individual and Family Counseling
  • Parent Coaching
  • Community Education
  • School Consultations
  • Referrals for developmental and medical services, when necessary

Kids Camp at The Council – This program is designed for children ages 7 to 12, from families who have struggled with alcohol and/or other drug addiction, whether in the past or currently. The three-day prevention and support program helps kids learn that they are not alone and that other kids and families have similar experiences.

Through art, games, role-play and fun activities, kids learn to identify and express feelings, develop self-care skills and deepen communication with their parents.

Parents or caregivers join their children for a portion of the program which includes parent education and support. Above all, children learn that addiction is not their fault and that they are not alone.

If you know a child who needs us, please call 713.914.0556 or email us at children@councilonrecovery.org to schedule an appointment now.


Children’s services are not currently available at our Austin location. If you are a mother in need of help to overcome an addiction or related issue, we can provide residential treatment for you and your children through our Family House program. Please call us for more details.

We promise to help you, your family, and your children get the help you need when dealing with substance abuse or a related issue.
