A nonprofit residential program, Nexus Recovery Center was established in 1971. Located in Dallas, Texas, the center offers substance abuse programs designed exclusively for females – adolescents aged 13 to 17 and adults.
Nexus Recovery Center also offers its clients Pregnant and Parenting Women with Children or PPWC – a residential program that allows mothers aged 18 and above to bring children (up to three) into treatment.
The center offers its clients a complete package of substance abuse programs —detox, residential, outpatient, and aftercare programs.
Nexus Recovery Center is set up on a 12-acre property and can accommodate up to 125 clients. About 100 clients stay at this center at any given point in time.
The campus houses dormitories where residents live, segregated by the treatment program. Non-mothers, mothers, mothers-to-be, as well as residents with children, stay separately. Adolescent residents are housed in separate living quarters.
Rooms are double occupancy and furnished with two dorm-style beds. Smoking is allowed in designated areas.
Nexus Recovery Center has an on-site exercise room, two playgrounds, two bucolic gardens, and outdoor recreation facilities. Residents and their children enjoy Serenity Garden. The center also offers interested residents Nexus’ Organic Garden, where they can grow herbs and vegetables, which is used in the center’s cafeteria.
Nexus Recovery Center runs a childcare center, a medical clinic, as well as an outpatient clinic.
Residents enjoy healthy and hearty meals, served cafeteria-style. Nexus Recovery Center offers an organic salad bar that is stocked with veggies grown in the campus garden. Unfortunately, specific dietary needs are not accommodated in the kitchen.
Residents at Nexus Recovery Center get a primary LADC assigned to them. The LADC prepares a customized treatment plan for the residents.
The counselor monitors the residents throughout their stay, which lasts between 15 to 45 days and 25 days up to 90 days for regular and adolescents and PPWC residents, respectively.
The treatment approach at Nexus is a mix of a holistic approach with 12-step and CBT. Individual and group sessions, as well as NA and AA meetings (on-site and off-site), form the core of the treatment program. Nexus Recovery Center does offer dual diagnosis support and detox services during the first phase of recovery.
A typical day begins by wake-up at 6:30 am, followed by meditation and breakfast. The residents then attend psychoeducation groups where topics like alcohol and drug education are discussed. The residents also discuss trauma coping skills and stress management in these sessions.
Residents break for lunch after these sessions. After lunch, the residents get down time, which is followed the 12-step meeting, and later on study time. Dinner is served after the study time. Residents retire for the day at 10:00 pm.
The visiting hours are on weekends. Family members can visit for family counseling and client support.
The treatment team at Nexus Recovery Center exceeds more than 100 professionals. A licensed psychiatrist is the medical director. There is a psychiatric nurse practitioner, an MFT, an LCSW, and 15 LADCs.
The University of Texas Southwestern also sends a team of Master’s-level psychiatric fellows to assist in the treatment programs.
As mentioned, Nexus does offer the PPWC program, which provides childcare for preschoolers, toddlers, and even infants. Older children have to attend an elementary school nearby.
Adolescent residents have to participate in on-campus school, six hours daily, during the weekdays. Accredited teachers teach them.
The center also offers Nexus Generations (PPI) an outreach service for women from drug-involved families and at risk for substance abuse. The program provides parenting skills, parent and child problems, and recovery.
Nexus Recovery Center, in association with the Dallas Housing Authority, provides a housing program, offering 15 vouchers as well as individual and group counseling to assist with treatment goals.
Nexus Recovery Center has an active alumni program for those residents who want to stay in touch with other residents. Aftercare programs, with weekly visits and counseling sessions, and 12-step meetings, are also offered to program graduates.
Approximately $3,600 (30 days).
