New sobriety can be a challenging and lonely time. Even after inpatient treatment or attendance of Twelve Step meetings, resisting relapse can be difficult without proper guidance. The Council on Recovery’s Relapse & Renewal Clinic provides that guidance and personalized one-on-one assistance through its innovative use of Recovery Support Consultants.

Each Recovery Support Consultant is specially trained in relapse prevention and sobriety support, and is also an active member of Houston’s recovery community.

“These Consultants are uniquely qualified to navigate between therapeutic resources and the recovery community,” says Lori Fiester, LCSW and Director of The Council on Recovery’s Center for Recovering Families. “They also guide Clinic participants to Twelve Step meetings, and they’re an understanding and available person to contact at times of struggle or potential relapse.”

The Recovery Support Consultants are an integral part of the Relapse & Renewal Clinic’s comprehensive outpatient program that includes support, education, group therapy, and personalized treatment to prevent back-sliding (or slipping) and strengthen the desire to stay sober. The intensive four-week program gives participants sufficient time to practice sobriety skills and better connect with the local recovery community.

The Relapse & Renewal Clinic is an alternative to residential treatment or sober-living facilities when such approaches may not be necessary or affordable.  The Clinic is open to all adults, regardless of length of sobriety or number of relapses.

The Relapse & Renewal Clinic is located at The Council on Recovery, 303 Jackson Hill Street, Houston, TX 77007. For more information call 281-200-9290 or visit www.councilonrecovery.org  #RelapseandRenewal
