The Council's Speaker Series

Our Spring & Fall Fundraising Events

Since 1984, The Council’s Speaker Series has raised funds for those in our community affected by addiction, and has broken down the shame and stigma behind addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders that prevent people from seeking recovery. As The Council’s premier charity event, our Speaker Series has gained national recognition and is among the largest philanthropic gatherings in Houston every year.

38th Annual Spring Luncheon with Jodie Sweetin

Friday, April 21, 2023

The Council on Recovery is excited to welcome Jodie Sweetin to Houston as the keynote speaker for our 38th Annual Spring Luncheon! Actress, producer, host, author and activist Jodie Sweetin garnered the love of millions in her role as Stephanie Tanner on ABC’s long-running, hugely popular sitcom “Full House” and the widely popular Netflix spinoff “Fuller House.” Having been in recovery for more than a decade, she chronicled her struggle with substance use disorder in her memoir unSweetined, and is now a passionate advocate for substance use prevention among youth and young adults.

Proceeds from the Luncheon will support individuals and families struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, and continue our promise to support those who need our help, regardless of their ability to pay.
