Debbie Fowler

LCDC

Intensive Outpatient Program Manager

Deborah “Debbie” Fowler is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor.  I  started my personal research into substance abuse after losing my Dad at an early age. After graduating from North Texas State University with a B.F.A, I continued my personal research until I reluctantly surrendered to the 12 Steps of Recovery after unsuccessfully changing my alcoholic. I also learned about the effects of living with active alcoholism that had on myself and my family.  While working in the corporate world, I had the honor of volunteering at the City Jail with women with trauma and substance use disorders.  I saw and felt the healing power effects of their sharing their experience, strength and hope, as well as mine.  They made my heart grow bigger.  I left the corporate world, went back to school and became a LCDC counselor and never looked back.

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas but decided to be closer to my family in Austin last year. I am grateful that I found a job steeped in the 12 Steps of Recovery.  I am a proud mom of two grown sons and two “frenchies”.
