Capacity Expansion Project
The Center for Recovery and Wellness Resources’ Capacity Expansion Project focuses on residents of the greater Houston metropolitan area who are in recovery or seeking recovery from alcohol and/or other drug problems, as well as their family members, significant others, friends and allies. Recovery is more than abstinence from alcohol and drugs--it is about building a full and productive life in the community. We will especially focus on assisting people whose lives have deteriorated significantly as a result of their disease--those with very low recovery capital. Recovery capital is the resources an individual brings to recovery including housing, employment, access mental and physical health services, and educational attainment. In order to sustain recovery, it is vital that people seeking recovery work to build stable, secure lives. Most have burned the bridges that allow for a contingency plan--their families may no longer be willing to lend a hand or open their doors, employers may not rehire, and physical health may have deteriorated. These are everyday occurrence for the people who we see.
