Of Women. By Women. For Women.


The mission of The Magdalen House is to help women achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles. Recovery is grounded in the idea that together we can accomplish what we cannot do alone. At The Magdalen House’s free recovery community for women, women help each other develop the spiritual skills to build new lives. Our experienced staff and passionate volunteers provide an attractive and powerful expression of the spiritual principles in daily life.

We firmly believe that any woman who is motivated to accept help can find lasting and meaningful recovery through the Twelve Steps. We provide a safe, supportive and nurturing environment where women not only learn about the Steps but become integrated into the greater recovery community.

Does “No-Cost” mean “Free”?

Yes, when we say a no-cost recovery community for alcoholic women, we actually mean it is a free program to all women seeking recovery from alcoholism. We are able to offer this thanks to the vast community we have built over 31 years, generous foundations, individual donors, and our dedicated volunteers. When women enter our Dallas-based Social Detox Program, they will stay in our house for the 14-day detox process for free. Afterward, they will become immersed in our powerful Peer Recovery Program community.
