Recovery Resource Council is the largest and most comprehensive nonprofit mental and behavioral healthcare provider in North Texas. Serving 19 North Texas counties and approximately 110,000 youth and adults, they are dedicated to the prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery of thousands of individuals and families struggling with alcohol, substance misuse, and trauma.

They also provide veteran services and a permanent housing program for the chronically homeless to address vital, unmet needs in the community. Currently, their Enduring Families program provides behavioral health services to more than 500 veterans, their spouses, and children.

Their evidence-based prevention education program for at-risk children is in 180 schools in 25 North Texas school districts, local homeless and domestic violence shelters, and other community sites.

The Outreach and Advocacy program addresses key issues of underage drinking, tobacco use, and DWI through three regional coalitions and the Regional Prevention Resource Center.

Volunteerism is an integral part of Recovery Resource Council’s culture, as it was first started by a network of volunteers. There are a multitude of volunteer opportunities, including mentoring, serving in the homeless women's programs, clerical work, staff support, working as a camp counselor at Camp L4, or special event volunteers.

Please consider joining their team as they welcome any talents, gifts, or skills that you have to offer clients and staff. If you would like to volunteer your time and learn more about how you can make a difference, please email info@recoverycouncil.org.

RRC hosts three signature events annually:

  • The annual Jim Bradshaw Memorial Stars in Recovery event is a luncheon typically held each May at the Omni Fort Worth and features a celebrity, athlete, or public figure to share their journey through addiction and path to recovery.
  • Stars in Recovery is an annual breakfast or luncheon held each September at a Dallas-based venue and features a celebrity, athlete, or public figure to share their journey through addiction and path to recovery.
  • The Golf Classic is held at the Ridglea Country Club in Fort Worth each October.
