Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Cenikor saves lives. We’re dedicated to finding the right program for each person as they work to rebuild lives and relationships damaged by addiction. We help nearly 10,000 people per year on their individual roads to recovery – and to a better, healthier life.

Our three-year strategic plan expands our service area, builds on our client-to-community counseling services, forges new alliances for workforce development, and increases our mentorship initiatives. Our strategic plan is based on our core principles with strategic growth and service as a fundamental objectives. In an effort to bring treatment to wherever there is a need, we are looking to acquire, develop, improve, and/or establish programs where there is need and economic viability. Over the years of our operation, Cenikor has evolved to offer supportive prevention services, outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults and adolescents, inpatient services for adults and adolescents, medical withdrawal management, mental health treatment for co-occurring disorders, and recovery housing services throughout Texas. Cenikor has impacted more than 150,000 lives in the past 55 years. We are committed to provide a foundation for better health and better lives for those we serve and our mission today shares the legacy of our origin.

No matter the age, wage or circumstance, we are united by compassion and committed to being a place for change for those battling substance abuse and behavioral health issues. Each of our program models are developed with quality assurance and clinical care as top-priority, with full adherence and compliance to regulations and industry standards. We strive to offer service models for all levels of care in our continuum for substance use disorder treatment. We offer services for both adults and adolescents and also offer programs that provide support to the families of those suffering with substance use disorders. As addiction and recovery touches the lives of everyone in some way, we work to mitigate the stigma of seeking help and to helping the person as a whole. In all we do, we are focused on providing support to our clients that will help them rebuild their lives long after they leave Cenikor by helping to change the attitudes, behaviors and perceptions associated with substance abuse disorders. Understanding that need for treatment is great, we also utilize an outpatient satellite model which brings recovery services to underserved communities. We provide professional, responsible, and quality driven treatment options that help individuals get back to a happy, healthy, and productive lives.

\With our three-year strategic plan growing our service area, we have expanded our medical withdrawal management, short-term residential and outpatient care to meet the needs of communities that lost services or required additional ones. We also registered growth in our non-traditional outpatient and adolescent treatment services. In every place we're able to open a facility or provide programs, we are helping people, and we are doing so in cooperation with these communities.
