Do I have a problem?
Only you can decide whether you have a problem with alcohol, drugs, or other addictive 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.
Since 1946, 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, outpatient treatment, and recovery services, The Council helps not only individuals and families, but our whole community as well. Our Center for Recovering Families provides counseling, treatment, and support to individuals and families who want to recover. At the same time, our Community Programs throughout the Greater Houston area provide 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 and have seen it many times. We also know what to do. Our outpatient treatment programs and counseling really work. That's why our clients are happy to talk about how we have helped them and their families recover from alcoholism, drug addiction, or related issue. Click here to hear their stories.
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.
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 and the entire community, we host a wide variety of events. These include 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. We also provide helpful links to articles, reports, news stories, videos, social media, and other sources of useful information.
