The mission of The Council on Recovery 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.

Center for Recovering Families

A part of The Council since 2002, The Center for Recovering Families was founded on the significant research showing that addiction and related compulsive, codependent behaviors affect the entire family, and that each family member needs access to individualized treatment and recovery support. At the Center, Council clinicians offer intensive outpatient treatment through our signature Healing Choices program for adults new to sobriety or recently discharged from residential treatment. We also offer ongoing individual, group and family therapy for partners, spouses, children, and other affected loved ones. The Center for Recovering Families also includes a clinical aftercare program to help clients and families maintain sobriety and a healthy lifestyle over the long term. Our integrated, evidence-based treatment model has been shown to produce optimal outcomes in overall health and social functioning.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Council serves the entire family, including children and adolescents impacted by substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Addiction impacts even the youngest family members, and as kids grow into adolescence, experimentation can turn into abuse or dependence upon alcohol, drugs, or other compulsive behaviors. The Center for Recovering Families provides children and adolescents with counseling, education, and support to break the family cycle of addiction and help the whole family recover.

Population(s) Served
Non-adult children
Adults

Through The John P. McGovern, M.D. Center for Community Education, The Council offers basic alcohol and drug education, family education about the effects and consequences of the disease of addiction, court-mandated classes, and high-quality continuing education workshops for all substance abuse and mental health professionals who need to meet their licensing and re-certification requirements. The Center is also dedicated to providing meeting space for 12-Step groups, with an average of 40 such meetings held at The Council per week. Every year, social service professionals and other community members participate in workshops, trainings and presentations held by The Council, and "Evening With" Series events and other workshops co-sponsored with national treatment centers. On average, The Council hosts approximately 50,000 attendees per year for our professional and community education programs and meetings.

Population(s) Served
Adults

School-based prevention seeks to prevent, delay or interrupt experimentation with alcohol, tobacco and other drugs through early education, intervention and ongoing support. Using the evidence-based Life Skills Training, All Stars, and CBSG (Curriculum Based Support Group) curricula at more than 17 schools and community sites, 8 prevention specialists prepare elementary, middle and high school students to make good decisions, resist peer pressure, manage anger, and form positive relationships. Trained staff and volunteers respond to community requests for presentations and health fairs, presenting on substance abuse-related topics requested by each group. Trained in the summer, volunteer mentors facilitate group meetings under Council prevention staff supervision.
