We live for our community.

The Council on Recovery is Houston’s leading provider of substance abuse prevention and education programs. These innovative and highly effective programs are changing the substance abuse landscape by preventing problems before they start at home, school, or work. Our educational services for individuals, families, schools, clinicians, and employers are based on proven research of what really works and are designed for immediate impact on those involved.

By emphasizing prevention and creating a better-educated community, we help stem the tide of substance abuse in its earlier, more treatable stages and create a brighter future for all. The Council’s prevention and education programs and services include:


Education Solutions

Recovery Support Services

Workplace Solutions

Prevention Resource Center

The Cradles Project

Wellderly Program

Behavioral Health Training Institute

State-funded or Other Treatment Options

Events & Workshops

How much does this cost?

The Council on Recovery is a non-profit organization that has been able to thrive for decades thanks to the financial support of our community.  Organizations, companies, and the general public help keep The Council's efforts going strong through foundation gifts, private donations, fundraising events, public grants, and United Way funding.  In return for this generous support, The Council is able to provide all of our community programs and services to everyone who needs them, regardless of their ability to pay. 


If you like our work and would want to help us keep our community programs free and widely available, consider giving us a donation. You can also support us by doing volunteer work at The Council, attending our Speaker Series luncheons, or providing other kinds of help (such as donating in-kind gifts, planned gifts, etc.). Finally, if you represent a group and are organizing a meet-up or a presentation, consider renting one of our venues for your event.
