Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse receives grant

Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse, Inc. (FBRC) was the recipient of a $35,000 grant from the Texas Methodist Hospital Healthcare and Nursing Education Foundation to support FBRC’s treatment services in Fort Bend County.

FBRC’s treatment programs include an intensive series of individual, family and group counseling sessions. Clients are guided toward recognition of their problems and receive help and support to attain personal responsibility in their new way of life. More than 500 individuals take part in these programs every year.

“We are so grateful to Texas Methodist Hospital for their support and partnership in serving the needs of local families” said Lisa Poynor, the CEO of FBRC. “This grant will help countless young adults attain sobriety and take an active and productive role in our community.”

FBRC has led the way in the prevention and treatment of substance abuse disorders in Fort Bend County since 1976. For more information about the Council, please visit www.fortbendcouncil.org or contact Irene Wisner at 281-207-2409 or iwisner@fortbendcouncil.org.
