Mission Statement: The mission of Nexus Recovery Center is to serve as a link to sobriety, independence, and dignity for low-income women and their families affected by addiction. We inspire hope, offer respect, and honor the unique differences of female addicts.
Statistics: In 2017, Nexus served 2,091 women and teens and 305 children, including 72 Nexus born babies. The January 2016, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report stated that the United States is experiencing an “epidemic” of drug overdose deaths. Since 2000 opioid overdose deaths have increased by 200%.
Nationally, approximately 32% of all drug treatment facilities offer specialized treatment for adult women and 13% report providing special services for pregnant and postpartum women. Currently, Nexus Recovery Center is on of the few drug and alcohol treatment facilities in Texas providing treatment services for pregnant and parenting adult women and teens.
In January 2017, the New York Times, supported by data from the Department of Health and Human Services, reported that due to the current epidemic, more children are being placed in foster care. Here, in Texas, foster care children have had to sleep in state offices and other temporary shelters.
History: Established in 1971, by 1974, Nexus programs included therapy and life skills training and housed 17 women. In 1990 the facility relocated to a 12-acre campus 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 expanded the adult women program to 40 beds. In 1993 because no treatment providers would accept pregnant or newly parenting teens Nexus began filling this service gap. In 1999, the Child Development Center was built to meet the needs of accompanying children. In 1997, Nexus opened a secondary site for outpatient services. In 2012 the adolescent program expanded to 30 beds.
Joint Commission accredited since 2006, a rare accomplishment in the non-profit sector due to the high standards required to earn and maintain. Nexus is committed to providing top-notch care for low-income women and their children.
