Posted on

What is your wish this holiday season? Is it for a loved one to quit drinking? For you to find the resolve you need to stop abusing drugs? The Council is here to help. Just call 713-942-4100 to speak to our qualified admissions team who can answer your questions and help you or a loved one begin the path to recovery. 

Many people have great success in finding sobriety during the holiday season. With help, they come to realize that holiday spirit doesn’t have to come in a bottle. The greatest gift you can give this season is the gift of hope for a brighter future for yourself or a loved one. The Council can help.

Since 1946, The Council has assisted families who are adversely affected by drugs and alcohol. We not only treat the individual struggling with addiction but also facilitate the healing of relationships between family, friends and loved ones. Our experienced counselors and staff are well-versed in addiction resources around the state from residential treatment facilities to outpatient programs, and our primary job is to help find the best solution for you and your family.

Don’t wait until after the holidays. Now is the time to ask for the help you or your loved one needs. Just give us a call, and we’ll take it from there. 

You know someone who needs us. What are you waiting for?
