Nexus Recovery Center


In 1971, Nexus was originally established as High Hopes Rehabilitation Center on Tremont Street but later moved to Fairmount Street near downtown. By 1974 the program included therapy and life skills training and housed 17 women. In 1990 the facility relocated to a 12-acre campus on La Prada Drive in east Dallas to provide a wider array of services.

The new space enabled Nexus to become a leader in treatment for women by allowing children to accompany their mothers into treatment. In 1991 Nexus opened a program for adolescent girls and expanded the adult women program to 40 beds. No treatment providers would accept pregnant or newly parenting teens, so Nexus began filling this service gap in 1993 and is one of the few providers to this vulnerable group in the state of Texas.

To meet the needs of the children accompanying their mothers into treatment, the Crystal Charity Children’s Center was built 1999 to house a nursery, pre-school classrooms, after school activity rooms, and the medical clinic. Nexus opened a secondary site for outpatient services in 1997. Originally on Oak Lawn, the outpatient site moved to Lemmon Avenue in 2001.

Continually striving for excellence, Nexus has been accredited by The Joint Commission since 2006. This accreditation is common for private centers but rare in the non-profit sector due to the high standards required to earn and maintain. At Nexus, we believe that ability to pay should not dictate the quality of care received.
I have a great support group and the best counselor.
