Our mission is to promote the development of positive behavior, health, and independence for individuals and families caught up in the cycles of substance abuse and addiction, criminal behavior, and mental illness, and to increase our client's sense of self-worth and self-efficacy by assisting them as they gain sobriety and commit to long-term recovery, which includes medical stability, mental health, and active engagement in the community at large.


Homeward Bound, Inc. prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, race, age, creed, ethnicity, sexuality, national origin, religion, or disability.


Founded in 1980, Homeward Bound, Inc. has helped more than 250,000 people move toward sobriety. Now serving 19 counties in North Texas and 6 counties in Far West Texas, we are the largest and one of the oldest and most respected non-profit substance abuse and mental health treatment agencies in Texas. With 5 different facility locations in Texas, we strive to provide the comprehensive care that every individual working towards recovery deserves.
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 and a lighthouse of hope for Texas communities.
We provide intensive residential treatment on a 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week basis. Each client is assigned to a licensed counselor and a treatment team that guides treatment every step of the way – from detox to residential treatment to outpatient counseling - who supports 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.
Twelve-step programs and peer counseling are integral parts of treatment. We also provide training for professionals seeking to maintain their licenses through continuing education and for people beginning their training as addiction specialists.

We accept private insurance, and we have federal, state, and private foundation grant funding to cover people who cannot pay for treatment.
