Counseling & Treatment Programs in Houston, TX

Changing Lives for the Better

The Council is Houston’s premier outpatient provider of treatment for alcoholism, substance abuse, and co-occurring mental health disorders. Changing lives for the better, we believe that people can recover from more than just addiction. We believe in recovery from destructive behaviors, from trauma, from shame, and from pain and fear. We also believe recovery can be for everyone. Our personalized treatment approaches help the entire family recover from the effects of substance use disorders, process addictions, and mental and behavioral health issues.

Backed by The Council on Recovery's decades-long reputation for excellence, the Center for Recovering Families guides people who are seeking help to lasting and fulfilling recovery. We offer an intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP), as well as a broad spectrum of treatment services and counseling for adults, adolescents, and children. We have one goal in mind: To help individuals and families understand their problems and offer new ways of thinking and behaving that result in happier and healthier recovering families.

The Council on Recovery also provides a state-funded treatment option for those who feel they may not be able to afford treatment. Our Discovering Choices outpatient program offers world-class care with multiple specialized treatment tracks designed to meet you where you are at in your recovery journey.
