Helping families find treatment and recovery resources
My own personal and professional experience in the treatment/ recovery world has led me to help families find treatment and recovery recommendations, guidance through the process, and continued support along the way. I graduated from Loyola University in Chicago with a Bachelor of Science in Education before moving to Austin. I am a certified Recovery Coach and an active member of
Al-Anon. I have been married for over thirty years to my husband, Kelly Cunningham, and we have been blessed with four children. In 2013, I was instrumental in starting a nonprofit for struggling teens with substance abuse/addiction. As a founding board member and Director of Development, I spent many hours building community relationships, fundraising, and marketing. I am an active and passionate advocate helping families with issues related to substance abuse. Through my own personal struggles with a child in recovery, I have learned how to navigate the challenges of the treatment world, and the many recovery options available.

“When our family found ourselves suddenly in the rough seas of addiction, we were weathering a storm unlike any other. Terrified and unsure of where to turn, we were so lucky to find Beth Cunningham. She’s experienced, calming, and yet doesn’t sugar coat what addiction brings. Beth was our anchor who held us down in many ways. We never would’ve survived without her guidance.

“Beth offers a unique and incredibly valuable service for families desperate to help their children. Especially in crisis, it can be very difficult to navigate all of the options and resources; Beth does a great deal of the vetting on behalf of families, and her experience and expertise can help parents avoid wasting precious resources on programs that aren't the right fit for their child. We felt that Beth truly listened to the unique needs and struggles of our son and worked really hard to find resources and professionals that would be most beneficial and cost-effective. We're still on our journey of recovery, but we're feeling hopeful and more confident about the path that we're on and the help that we have on board. We are extremely grateful to Beth and her compassionate and thoughtful guidance.”
“Our son has been struggling with substance abuse for over 5 years. He has been to multiple recovery centers without success. It was when we finally met Beth that we got true guidance on what to do with our son. Her professional knowledge and guidance led us to the right treatment center. Beth understands that every case is unique and she knows how to navigate the system in order to find the right tools needed to treat moth the individual and the family. Beth was a God send. We will never forget you and all you have done for us.”

“Beth was extremely helpful to me during a significant downturn in my life. She provided wisdom, guidance, and options to help me navigate a “scary” time. I would not hesitate to reach out to her again. I would highly recommend her if you need support in any way. I have gained more clarity and hope because of Beth, which I am forever grateful.
“Beth has been along our side for years - not only offering us her support, guidance, encouragement, hope, advice, prayers, resources, names of experts…but more importantly, a fierce determination pushing us along to make the calls, visit the resources, talk to the experts, etc. ourselves… empowering us and making us stronger.”
“Simply put, I was totally lost... I had been to a couple of well-known recovery centers over the last few months, but once again I was in darkness with my addiction to alcohol. My wife and I were desperate. I was not an easy person to deal with in my addiction. But Beth would not give up on me and after evaluating my specific needs and different options, she found the right place for me. We would have never found the recovery center that we ultimately chose without Beth's help... "never". I can honestly say Beth helped me save my life. Her experience and knowledge of the recovery industry were a true North Star. If you need help with your addiction and what your next steps should be, I would highly recommend calling Beth. We stay in touch today and by the grace of God, I am sober. What a blessing.”
