About the Houston Recovery Center
At the Houston Recovery Center, we know a lot about working with homeless individuals — in fact, 88 percent of the clients that walk through our doors on a daily basis are homeless.
Alcohol and substance abuse are highly prevalent in homeless individuals. The Houston Recovery Center supports homelessness support programs by doing our part to address addiction and chemical dependency. Here’s how:
- The primary function of our facility is to house men and women who are intoxicated and need a safe place to sober up. Most of these folks are referred to us by local law enforcement as a means of jail diversion.
- However, we support homelessness continuum of care programs because we also offer long-term addiction recovery support services. We work with local nonprofits and resources to help willing individuals connect to those who can offer permanent relief from addiction.
- Not only does our service help fill the gaps of homelessness substance use disorder programs, but we benefit law enforcement and even local medical resources by keeping intoxicated individuals out of jails and medical facilities, where they can unnecessarily syphon important resources.
We encourage you to learn more about the Houston Recovery Center and how we do our part to serve the community and act as a key component for homelessness continuum of care programs.
