The Council on Recovery prides themselves on providing straightforward solutions to individuals and their families that are being affected by alcoholism, drug addiction, and the mental health disorders that coincide with those afflictions. Since 1946, The Council on Recovery has been providing support to the Greater Houston community through a range of outpatient recovery services to both individuals and families, and are proud to say they turn no one away, no matter what their financial situation is. This is why the Waggoners Foundation Speaker Series is so critical to the continuation of this outstanding public resource.
On Thursday, November 1st, 2018, The Wayne Duddlesten Foundation presented the Annual Fall Luncheon with celebrity guest speaker, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Godfather of Shock Rock, Alice Cooper.
Being a rock icon during a time when drugs and alcohol ruled the Rock and Roll scene, Alice Cooper has seen it all. Being able to watch as he discussed his experiences with local Houston weatherman Frank Billingsley, was an amazing look into how even the heaviest alcohol and drug users can become a pillar of sobriety. He spoke of his experiences with mostly alcohol, how he decided to go by Alice Cooper, and how golf ended up saving his life, among so many other topics.
