Now's the time, let us help.

Addiction only gets worse as time goes by. This is why you shouldn’t hesitate to contact us if you suspect that you or a loved one has a problem. The Council on Recovery is Houston’s oldest and largest provider of prevention, education, and outpatient treatment services for alcoholism and substance abuse disorders. We can help you or a loved one recover from addiction, right now.

Do I have a problem?

Only you can decide whether you have a problem with alcohol, drugs, or other behaviors. But how do you know for sure? Here are some questions to ask yourself - answer them honestly to see if you have a problem.

Question 1/5:

Has my drinking, drug use, or other behaviors caused problems at home or with other people?

Yes
No

Give your loved one a hand.

Alcoholism, drug abuse, and other addictive behaviors can tear families and relationships apart. The Council on Recovery helps individuals and their families. If you know someone who is struggling, contact us and we’ll tell you how to help them. If you or your family are personally struggling, schedule a consultation and we’ll show you how to heal your family or relationship, whether or not the addict wants help.

Note: If your loved one qualifies for state-funded assistance, has no insurance, and cannot pay for treatment, The Council can still help. Click here for more information. We turn no one away.

The Council on Recovery was the complete opposite of what I expected or had gone through in other programs. I found myself looking forward to classes and feeling the weight lifting off of my shoulders with every new day. This is where I learned to deal with my problems properly instead of running away. I learned that I mattered.

Recovery Client

It felt like I called a million treatment centers, The Council on Recovery was the only one who talked to me about what was happening to our daughter… and our family.

I’ve tried so many times, but The Council on Recovery helped me make it work. After 10 years in addiction, my kids finally call me ‘Daddy’ again.

We make our community better.

The Council on Recovery is always at work expanding awareness about the adverse effects of addiction on our community, as well as the benefits of personal recovery and family healing. To support the people we serve as well as the entire community, we host a wide variety of events, such as support groups, educational seminars, CEU classes, experiential workshops, and Twelve Step meetings. On our blog, we speak out on current events and important issues related to recovery, as well as provide helpful links to articles, reports, newscasts, videos, social media, and other sources of useful information.
