Health Services
Each client is assigned to a treatment team that manages their journey every step of the way – from detox to residential to outpatient therapy. Our evidence-based treatment gives clients the medical, 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 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.; the lobby is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Residential Units
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, clients experiencing a psychiatric episode also have an underlying substance abuse issue, and we are well-equipped to help with those issues.

Outpatient Services
Outpatient groups offer counseling, education, and peer support. Clients 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.
