Other Support Meetings

The Council on Recovery believes that support groups can play an important part in the recovery process. Whereas we recommend attendance of them as part of our efforts at helping people, these meetings and groups themselves are entirely autonomous and non-affiliated with The Council beyond our provision of space for them to hold their meetings.

If you are interested in holding your meeting at The Council of Recovery, feel free to view our offering of venues, contact venue@councilonrecovery.org or call 281.200.9335 to get started right away.

Refuge Recovery is a mindfulness-based addiction recovery community that practices and utilizes Buddhist philosophy as the foundation of the recovery process. Drawing inspiration from the core teachings of the Four Noble Truths, emphasis is placed on both knowledge and empathy as a means for overcoming addiction and its causes. Those struggling with any form of addiction greatly benefit when they are able to understand the suffering that addiction has created while developing compassion for the pain they have experienced. We hope to serve you, and meet you on the path.
