The Houston Recovery Center provides exclusive Harris County confidential jail diversion programs for those who are publicly intoxicated and in need of care/treatment. These programs provide tremendous assistance for Harris County law enforcement by providing proper care and referrals for those in need.

The Houston Recovery Center’s confidential jail diversion services includes the added benefit of keeping marks off our clients’ records. The Harris County and City of Houston law enforcement, health care, and mental health communities benefit significantly from our lower-level interventions designed to promote health instead of simply punishing those who suffer from substance abuse issues.

How confidential jail diversion programs in Harris County can a make positive impact

At the Houston Recovery Center, we know that long-term substance-abuse recovery requires an investment — not a quick fix. Although our confidential jail diversion programs in Harris County offer short-term sobering services, we also provide more intensive case management for our valued clients.

Benefits of using our supportive confidential jail diversion services in Harris County include:

  • Referrals and support for all types of substance users, not just those needing help with alcohol
  • No-cost interventions
  • Walk-in assistance
  • Help for those who may have “burned bridges” at previous facilities

We offer the same level of care and treatment for clients who visit us once or 100 times. Our services are designed to meet clients where they are — literally — by going into the community for meetings with clients at coffee shops, libraries and more.

Furthermore, our peer support model is unique among confidential jail diversion programs. We focus on empathy, care and support throughout our recovery and referral model.
