PaRC's History

PaRC has a long history of helping individuals recover their lives from the disease of addiction. In the 1990s, two well-recognized hospital systems joined forces to become the PaRC Healthcare System. Other local hospitals were merged into PaRC Healthcare System, including a free-standing substance abuse and psychiatric center called Spring Shadows Glen, founded in 1982. Spring Shadows Glen was eventually relocated to the Texas Medical Center and renamed the “Prevention and Recovery Center,” commonly referred to today as the PaRC.

The PaRC thrived in the Texas Medical Center location and within five years had outgrown the building. With a full census and lengthy waiting list, the PaRC was relocated to our current location on Gessner Road in Houston, just 3 miles north of I-10 in the Memorial City area. Our campus is now three times the size of our former Medical Center location. In 2008, we opened an adolescent drug rehab center for teens ages 13 to 17. We also expanded our intensive outpatient program locations to include more communities in the Houston metro area.
