The Fort Worth Recovery Resource Council recently celebrated its 69th anniversary.
The Recovery Resource Council began in 1957, but its roots date back to 1944, the year that the National Committee for Education on Alcoholism (now known as the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence) was formed.
That year, the Council became an affiliate of NCADD and has since grown its presence as one of the leading recovery centers in North Texas. On average, the council services over 75,000 people each year.
Some of the Council’s major accomplishments include the Enduring Families program and Project New Start, as well as its youth programs like the Sunshine Club and Camp L4.
Enduring Families provides counseling to servicemen and women with PTSD-related issues. To date, the Council has served more than 450 veterans and family members.
Project New Start, a housing program for homeless or disabled men and women, is celebrating its 10th year.
The Recovery Resource Council also has programs for at-risk youth. The Sunshine Club, for example, has been around since 1986, helping elementary school children dealing with trauma. Camp L4, which stands for Live, Learn, Laugh and Love, takes children in shelters to Camp Carter for activities like horseback riding, arts and crafts, and life skills classes. According to the council, about 79 percent of those served by the organization are under age 18.
The Recovery Resource Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with more than 60 years of experience providing hope, conquering addiction and healing families. They are the link between substance abuse services and the adults, youth and families who are in need.
The Recovery Resource Council has an extensive history of providing case management and behavioral health services to those seeking help with substance abuse and mental health issues. Since its inception in 1957, Recovery Resource Council has grown to be recognized as a leader in North Texas in the fields of outreach, intervention and prevention.
