Partners in Recovery

Levels of Care that meet client recovery needs

Anyone who comes through our doors and requests assistance gets connected to available resources.

For those who have a low income and are uninsured, we designed our Partners in Recovery program that offers different levels of care based on client readiness and personal goals.

Personal Addiction Recovery Team (PART)

Our flagship 18 month recovery program for underserved individuals

The Personal Addiction Recovery Team (PART) pairs clients with a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and a Peer Recovery Support Specialist for 6 months of intensive case management and 18 months of peer recovery support. Using evidence-based best practices, the team assesses the client’s substance use and mental health needs and connects them to the appropriate community resources, providing transportation and warm handoffs to treatment and other services. Throughout the program, the team meets with clients at convenient locations in the community to offer guidance on their unique pathway of recovery.

Peer Recovery Support (PRS)

Peer-to-Peer conversations that build trust and foster growth

Some clients prefer to begin with a more informal program before they are ready to commit to addiction treatment. Some simply need to talk things over with someone who’s walked in their shoes. Or maybe they are headed into a treatment program and want to talk to someone who’s been there too.
State Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialists coach clients to define their personal goals, develop a plan to meet them, and assess their progress. If the client may benefit from more intensive treatment services, coaches work with Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors to help them decide which option is most appropriate for them.

Different than 12 step programs, peer coaching looks 360 degrees at the life of the person with next steps defined by the client. Every recovery path is unique.

Pre-Recovery Engagement Plan (PREP)

Opening the door to recovery from the street.

We specialize in building trusted relationships with our clients. This is where our Pre-Recovery Engagement Plan comes in. A relatively small group of clients have come to the sobering center ten times or more, contributing to a disproportionately large number of our total visits.
Often, these clients have given up completely on the idea of recovery. Many of the same clients also have frequent emergency service use—including ambulances, emergency departments, and hospitals—as well as criminal justice involvement.

The Pre-Recovery Engagement Plan was designed to give these clients the opportunity to connect with us and address their health challenges and quality of life without committing to addiction treatment. Peer Recovery Support Specialists works with clients through harm reduction offering medical, mental health, dental, housing, clothing and other needs, with the goal of helping clients gain stability and reaching a place where they are motivated to take the first step on their pathway of recovery.

We are on the streets with this group of clients meeting with them in their environment. Conducting wellness checks and shooting the breeze. Trust takes time.

Jail In-Reach

Bridging justice involved with recovery solutions

Reaching out to the Houstonians most vulnerable to substance use disorders means acknowledging that substance use often lies at the root of public safety issues.

Our Jail In-Reach program works with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office to interview inmates pre-screened and interested in addiction services. These inmates are then introduced to our staff, who establish a relationship with them and prepare them to enter a Partners in Recovery program, so services can begin at the moment of reentry.

Reintegration Court

Reintegration Court

We were already working with clients in STAR Drug Court and Felony Mental Health Court when the opportunity to place Recovery Support Specialists in the Reintegration Court came along. Here staff have recovery conversations with defendants facing treatment as an alternative to incarceration. Those that say yes to ongoing peer support are assigned to a coach that sticks with them as they address court stipulations, treatment services and personal goal setting.

Adult Probation

Bridging justice involved with recovery solutions

Reintegration Court

Substance use is challenging to overcome, and probationers using opioids often face major challenges staying in contact with their probation officers. To improve connections and outcomes, Houston Recovery Center and Harris County Adult Probation are working together to provide much-needed peer support for these probationers. Two Recovery Support Specialists now work inside the probation department, using their lived experience in opioid use recovery to begin healthy conversations, develop life-changing relationships, and increase self-efficacy. Clients are offered coaching through the Partners in Recovery Peer Recovery Support program so they can successfully complete their probation requirements while addressing issues surrounding substance use and recovery.

Houston Emergency Opioid Engagement System

Opioid use has become a national public health crisis. In Houston, Houston Recovery Center has partnered with UT Health Science Center at Houston, Memorial Hermann Hospital, and the Houston Fire Department to create a system of care for individuals in hospital emergency departments because of opioid overdoses. The Houston Emergency Opioid Engagement System  (HEROES) includes a Houston Recovery Center Recovery Support Specialist with lived experience in opioid use recovery, building relationships with patients and offering coaching through the Partners in Recovery Peer Recovery Support program.
