Substance Abuse Treatment Programs For Women In Dallas, TX


Nexus offers outpatient services to women and adolescents as primary treatment or as a step-down from residential treatment. Outpatient services are offered at both the La Prada campus as well Nexus’ outpatient center located on Lemmon Avenue, convenient to public transportation. On-site childcare is available at both locations.

Clients participate in group meetings and individual counseling with a focus on maintaining sobriety while dealing with the stressors of daily living. The goal of the Outpatient program is to provide our clients a safe place to begin or to continue recovery through identifying major life stresses, personal issues, biochemical issues or mental health issues that have contributed to problematic behavior patterns.

The program addresses topics such as:
• Alcohol and drug education
• Anger management skills
• Behavior management
• Discharge planning
• Education groups
• Family, group and individual therapy
• Medication evaluation and management
• Parenting skills
• Problem solving skills
• Relapse prevention skills
• Relationship skills
• Stress management skills

Intensive Outpatient

Groups are held five days a week in the mornings and afternoons in a step-down program model that gradually decreases attendance requirements to three days a week. The groups provide a safe place to process feelings and behaviors and also provide education regarding chemical dependency issues. All clients participate in individual sessions with their counselor and may undergo family therapy if needed.

Intensive outpatient treatment may be utilized as a primary treatment source for individuals or a continuation of care for women who have participated in a residential program and seek intensive support and structure in order to maintain sobriety.

Supportive Outpatient

Supportive outpatient treatment is designed as a step-down for women who have established some abstinence in higher levels of care but may also be utilized as a primary treatment source for those who do not require higher levels of care.

Available in the mornings and evenings and at both locations, supportive outpatient focuses on balancing recovery with family, school and work. Clients attend group two to four times a week and meet with their counselor for individual sessions.

Adolescent Outpatient Program

Designed for chemically dependent and abusive adolescent females ages 13 to 17 years old, the Adolescent Outpatient Program offers individual, group and family counseling. Family participation is mandated with the understanding that the client’s success in recovery is partly dependent on the family’s knowledge of addiction and the recovery process. Multi-family group is required and meets every Monday night. Counseling is available Monday and Wednesday 6:00pm-8:00pm.
