a look at our 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.
Medical detox rescues the body that has gone into crisis because of physical addiction to a substance that's no longer present. We pledge to provide a safe place while the drugs and alcohol leave the client's system. We admit clients experiencing withdrawal symptoms into our medically monitored Detoxification Unit on a first-come-first-serve basis, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; lobby hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
We offer a safe place in separate programs for men and women recovering from substance use disorder or clients experiencing a psychiatric crisis. We take a holistic approach and help in all aspects of life, including an array of services such as specialized medical care, education, employment, outpatient services and safe, sober housing. Often, we find with those experiencing a psychiatric episode that there is an underlying substance abuse issue as well, and we are well-equipped to help with those issues.
Outpatient groups offer counseling, education and peer support. Clients will learn about addiction and recovery and develop coping skills. An introduction to a 12-step program is included. Clients can begin or continue their recovery journey with programs that operate in our Dallas administration building. Outpatient treatment lasts around two to four months based on individual needs.
Our statewide program is for HIV positive and AIDS patients from across Texas. This 60-day program addresses all the health needs of clients.Our goal is to return clients to complete health and sobriety. We are so successful that the majority of our clients leave with viral loads so low that the virus is undetectable. They also leave with the knowledge that they are supported and cared about. We make outside medical appointments and accompany our clients to them. Our nurses are on-site 24 hours a day.
