Austin Recovery's 50th Anniversary Celebration
In 1967, Jim and Hazel Lavender opened their hearts to Austinites who were struggling with addiction and built a home where they could go for safe and compassionate recovery. For fifty years, the core of their work has remained intact and despite a handful of hard spots, Austin Recovery has remained a place where tens of thousands of Texans have gone for compassionate and affordable recovery care.
Addiction is a chronic disease with antidotes of connection and self-worth, and when paired with the teachings of the 12 Steps, resiliency is born. It is this central tenet of the organization - resiliency - that remains the foundation on which Austin Recovery stands and continues to build on today.
