Human Resources Manager for Austin Recovery Network

Who We Are:

Austin Recovery Network is a nonprofit addiction treatment and support system of care. Services include adolescent peer-to-peer support, a recovery-focused high school and adult outpatient support services. The disease of addiction has a relapse prevention and maintenance program akin to those designed for diabetes, hyper-tension, and heart disease, but it has historically been treated like a one-time illness. We want to change that. Austin Recovery, University High School and Keystone Alternative Peer Group are re-imagining what a continuum of care needs to look like to be fully person-centered and affordable - for the duration of each person's life.
