HOW TO GET HELP
Intake assessments are conducted on a first-come-first-served basis from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary. For more information, call our main number at 214-941-3500 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
Homeward Bound will offer residential treatment as soon as we complete our move to a new facility. Outpatient treatment and administrative offices are located at 315 Sunset Avenue. This facility is easily accessible from I-35 and I-30 and is on several DART bus lines. All programs are licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Each client is assigned to a treatment team that manages his or her treatment every step of the way – from detox to residential treatment to outpatient counseling, to support for re-entry to the outside world. We give clients the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual help they need to move to a full, healthy life.
Whenever there’s substance addiction in a family, there’s guilt and sorrow. We involve the entire family by giving them the support, therapy and resources they need. We take it one step at a time.
A large part of our mission has always been to divert people from going to jail or prison. Our founder and executive director, Douglas W. Denton, designed and operated the first jail diversion program in Texas – and one of the first in the nation.
Homeward Bound, Inc., is the go-to resource for judges, attorneys, probation officers, public hospital emergency rooms and law enforcement officers. Recently, Homeward Bound has partnered with the Dallas Police Department in its new Serial Inebriant Treatment program, which provides intervention and treatment for Dallas’ most intransigent substance abusers who use a good deal of public services.
