Take a Moment and Save a Life

At Communities for Recovery, we need your help to ensure that our services and support are there for people in need during all the moments in their journey.

Every donation helps change someone’s life.


Your donation enables us to provide critical support such as:

  • Peer recovery coaching services

  • Online support groups and wellness classes

  • Volunteer and social activities

  • Access to community resources like housing and employment

This month, we’ve shared Cindy’s story with you because you understand how important it is to support long-term recovery in our community. Cindy’s story powerfully illustrates the millions of tiny moments that make up a life in recovery.

“My name is Cindy. I am 65 and my drug of choice has been alcohol since I was a young mother. I did not realize that I was an alcoholic until I started searching for an outpatient facility for my daughter when she was 19.

I had a prestigious career, lifestyle and home. I began going in and out of treatment and getting arrested for public intoxication and DWI's. 20 years ago, I was incarcerated with a 5-year sentence and 14 years later I was incarcerated with a 3-year sentence for DWI's. I paroled from Dallas to Austin thinking I could have a new lifestyle and get away from the things that triggered me. It took some time, but I started drinking again.

Your donation today ensures that Communities for Recovery is there for Cindy and so many others during the moments in their recovery journey.


As Cindy shared in her story…, “Thank you for supporting Communities for Recovery. YOU helped ME change my life”.

From everyone at Communities for Recovery, we wish for you a blessed and Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2021!
