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.
Has my drinking, drug use, or other behaviors caused problems at home or with other people?
Have I ever missed work, school, or family obligations due to alcohol, drugs, or other behaviors?
Have I tried to stop drinking, drugs, or other behaviors, but found that I couldn’t?
Have I ever had blackouts - times I can’t remember - due to alcohol, drugs, or other behaviors?
Would my life be better if I did not drink, use drugs, or engage in other behaviors?

Let us guide you to light.
For over 70 years, The Council on Recovery has inspired and guided Houstonians with the tools to achieve lasting recovery. We design a path of freedom from alcohol, drugs, and other related issues that works where others fail. We also educate, treat, and support the entire family—not just the individual—so everyone can heal. The light of hope, healing, and recovery illuminates all that we do.
As Houston’s largest non-profit provider of prevention, education, treatment, and recovery services, The Council helps not only individuals and families, but our whole community as well. Our Center for Recovering Families provides outpatient counseling, treatment, and support to individuals and families who want to recover. At the same time, our Community Programs are at work throughout the Greater Houston area providing prevention, education, and counseling services in schools, workplaces, community centers, and mental health facilities.
The Council on Recovery is the starting point for everyone who needs help. Going beyond other organizations, we’re committed to helping individuals, families, and the entire community recover. Recovery is in our name and DNA. What’s more, we turn no one away.
We have helped many already.
If you or a loved one needs help, you might be feeling anxious, confused, or even afraid. We understand. We've seen it many times and we know what to do. Our programs really work, which is why our clients are happy to talk about how we've helped them or a loved one and their families recover from alcoholism, drug addiction, or related issue.

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.
