WholeLife Recovery Group – Houston

What is WholeLife Recovery?

WholeLife Recovery is an outpatient recovery group in Houston specifically for adults who have been through and completed Residential or IOP within the past year and are looking to go deeper into their recovery work. Group members must be currently active in a community-based recovery support organization (ex: AA/NA, Refuge, SMART, Celebrate, or LifeRing). WholeLife Recovery groups follow the SEAR Program Model more deeply addressing the spiritual/philo, emotional and relational aspects of addiction recovery.

WholeLife Recovery out patient groups are intentionally kept small to ensure a more personal experience with a higher quality for each member. We believe that groups of 8 to 10 or less, allow for a enriched¬† therapeutic environment that larger, “classroom” type groups simply cannot attain. WholeLife Recovery groups are also highly process-oriented with a deep focus on authenticity, compassion and vulnerability.
