As the oldest and largest provider of prevention, education, treatment, and recovery, The Council serves people of all ages whose lives are affected by alcohol and substance abuse, addictions, and co-occurring mental health disorders. Because of the generous contributions from supporters of TheCouncil on Recovery, they have been about to provide support to hundreds of thousands of people, that otherwise would not have been able to get the help they desperately needed. 

The Fall Luncheon is part of the Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series. Since 1999, the Fall and Spring Luncheons have featured the biggest stars of the entertainment, sports, and business worlds. The Fall Luncheon with Rob Lowe was anticipated to be one of the largest philanthropic gatherings in Houston and is expected to sell out quickly, and it certainly did. The ballroom at the Hilton Americas in downtown houston was busting at the seams with people eagerly awaiting to hear from Rob Lowe. The superstar actor, author, and producer shared his personal story of hope and recovery from addiction, while helping raise money to support The Council's vital work in Houston.
