Since our founding in 1946, The Council on Recovery has been at the forefront of helping individuals and families whose lives have been affected by alcoholism, drug abuse, and other addictions. As substance abuse disorders continue to afflict major segments of our society, The Council’s relentless efforts with prevention, education, treatment, and recovery are helping stem the tide of these viciou...s problems facing our community and each one of us.
The Council on Recovery’s impact throughout the Greater Houston area is legendary. Our prevention and education programs in schools, organizations, businesses, and at-large are truly helping stem the tide of alcoholism, substance abuse, other addictions, and co-occurring mental health disorders. As the largest organization of our kind, we are uniquely positioned to respond to our community’s needs whenever anyone needs help.
Our mission is to keep our community healthy, productive and safe by providing services and information to all who may be adversely affected by alcohol, drugs and related issues. Our vision is for a community in which substance abuse is no longer a major problem. Where all people who experience alcohol, drug, or related problems have access to effective, affordable services that address their needs. A place where individuals and organizations find freedom from the shame and stigma attached to substance abuse.
