Houston Recovery Center provides vital services to the greater Houston community. We operate the Sobering Center, a jail diversion program for public intoxication. We keep people who partied a bit too much out of jail, help them safely sober up and get them connected to recovery services if needed. For people living on the street with substance use disorders, we conduct street outreach programs to establish trusted relationships and bridge them to recovery services and housing when they are ready. The demand for our services has expanded our reach into the jail, courts, adult probation and working with EMS on emergency response programs for opioid overdoses. In short, we specialize in working with people who misuse substances and often don’t know it and support them during their recovery process. We love what we do.

In five short years we have accomplished a lot. Our working culture is fun, down to earth, and filled with compassion for the people we serve while working to improve the health and safety of our community. We operate in the heart of public health and partner with over 50 agencies and organizations. This year our work with be published in the American Journal of Public Health.
