In Houston, public and private schools, as well as local community centers, currently participate in The Council on Recovery’s evidence-based prevention programs.

Prevention is a pro-active process of helping individuals, families and communities to develop the resources needed to maintain healthy lifestyles. Prevention aims to alleviate a wide range of at-risk behaviors including, but not limited to, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse; crime and delinquency; violence; vandalism; school failure; school dropouts; teenage pregnancy; mental health problems; depression and suicide (Adopted by the 1996 Prevention Committee of the International Certification Reciprocity Consortium [of addiction counselors]).

For students in grades 3-12, The Council offers programs for:

  • Elementary School
  • Middle School
  • High School

For more information regarding our Prevention programs in schools, please contact 281.200.9204.

The Council’s Choices Program is also present in a number of local Houston high schools and utilizes components of previously successful prevention efforts derived from the extant literature as well as two suggested elements missing from these programs: a focus concerning multiple high-risk behaviors and programming tailored to fit a specific school culture.
