We Take Care of Our Own


On Tuesday, December 2, charities, families, schools and many other organizations around the country and the world come together to celebrate generosity and to give back.  This year The Council and PRO-ACT are launching our first ever peer-to-peer giving fundraising initiative and we are turning to you, as past and present supporters of recovery, to help us make this campaign a success.

This effort to generate support for recovery will allow us to continue to provide prevention, advocacy and recovery support to individuals and families wishing to access recovery or stop the inter-generational transmission of addiction in our community.  

Research tells us that if an individual with a diagnosis of a substance use disorder (addiction) is supported and able to remain abstinent for 5 years, there is an 86% probability of life long recovery.  A remarkable statistic when compared with other chronic illnesses!  

Over the past year The Council’s Recovery Support/Recovery Management programs provided services to 2100 individuals to help them access and sustain life long recovery.  Our Prevention early intervention programs provided services to 217 families to help them stop the inter-generational transmission of this disease to their children and 45 pregnant and postpartum women were served through our MOMS program helping to preserve the next generation.  With your support we can do more!

Your investment in recovery embodies the spirit of the adage “we take care of our own” and with your help, we can continue to play a significant role to ensure the continuation and success of these vital services.  In the links below you will find many ways to support recovery in this season of giving.  Please join us.

Thank You for Giving to The Council

winterDear Friend of Recovery,

A heartfelt thanks to all of you who have helped us make a difference in the health and lives of so many people this year. Now in The Council’s 38th year of providing a wide range of services to families, schools, businesses, individuals and our local communities, we are grateful to those of you helping with the increasing need for our services. Whether you are an associate in the field, generous donor, dedicated volunteer, friend or staff member THANK YOU for being there in 2013.

Some of the benefits received by more than 27,000 visitors to our recovery community centers this past year are quantifiable improvement in sustained recovery; improved mental health, increased financial stability; stable housing; and increased employment. And this coming year we are excited to be adding another recovery community center in Montgomery County–more about this in the near future. All of these services, in addition to our 24/7 recovery support line, family education program, help thousands of people to engage and sustain their recovery.

I am filled with optimism about the future and believe that the recovery field is beginning to undergo a positive transformation. With your continued help we can together change the way in which addiction is perceived and managed in our society.

But we must keep working hard and need your continuing financial support. Giving to The Council will help us with our mission to provide resources and opportunities to reduce the impact of addiction, trauma and other related health issues for the entire community.  We accomplish this through prevention, consultation, education, advocacy, assessment, intervention and recovery support services. 

The Council is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and your donations are tax-deductible.  Please visit our donation page for more information or click here to enter our secure donation site.    

The Council directors and staff join me in wishing you a safe and peaceful holiday season and a healthy and wonderful New Year.
