A persistent myth of substance use disorder is that the road to recovery begins by hitting rock bottom. At the Houston Recovery Center, we provide our clients with medical supervision to safely and properly sober up, and we do not wait for rock bottom. The Houston Recovery Center provides professional substance use disorder intervention programs as part of our sobering center. Our team of highly skilled counselors and recovery coaches are here to support a diverse array of substance abuse concerns.

We provide a critical safety net for clients who feel vulnerable and in need of a professional substance use disorder intervention. At the Houston Recovery Center, all clients are treated with a proactive, supportive approach that is designed to wrap them in services from our valued community partners.

Every year, our substance use disorder intervention programs help hundreds of clients in the Greater Houston Area find the proper support and recovery program to regain their health and control on their life.

How does a Professional Substance Use Disorder Intervention Work?

The Houston Recovery Center is a go-to destination for professional substance use disorder interventions in Houston and is used by law enforcement agencies to divert publicly intoxicated individuals from jail. We are also open to the general public and accept all walk-ins. As part of our sobering center practice, our staff of peer support coaches offer interventions for those in need. However, the interventions at the Houston Recovery Center are only done with full consent, once the client is sober.

The Houston Recovery Center respects the privacy of all our clients and understands why some may wish to remain anonymous. Private rooms are available for these clients. However, those who feel they need an extra level of support may have contact with loved ones and family members during the sobering process.

Clients who are intoxicated on alcohol or any other substance or who have substance use issues are eligible to receive help from our sobering center and substance use disorder intervention programs in Houston.

What do these programs include?

  • Our philosophy is based on mobilizing community resources and developing a case management plan that promotes behavioral change and medical stabilization.
  • We offer acute services to help clients achieve sobriety in the short term, and we supplement those interventions with a full 18 months of recovery support for those who are seeking help.

Our professional substance use disorder intervention services are designed to help the most vulnerable clients achieve sobriety by empowering and supporting their individual needs. If you have any questions regarding our sobering services and intervention process, we encourage you to contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you.
