The Magdalen House is a non-profit organization helping women achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles. Founded in Dallas in 1987, The Magdalen House remains the only agency in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to offer comprehensive recovery services – without insurance or state funding – 100% free of charge.
A three-phase, nonresidential program for an alcoholic woman at any stage of recovery. She is provided with support and structure to sustain her recovery while growing in her knowledge of
12-Step spiritual principles.
Solution-focused classes, meetings, and workshops are provided for alcoholic women at every stage of recovery, 365 days a year. We also have dedicated volunteers who provide Family Support to families and loved ones of alcoholics.
This is a program like no other. Dignity and grace replace the shame and guilt most of us feel when seeking help. There is also help for the family and friends to help heal the damage of alcoholism. I am a friend for life.
The Magdalen House serves so many with dignity and grace.
Maggie’s accepted me when no one else would. I was at the lowest bottom of my life. I was walking dead – I truly appreciate the love I received at Maggie’s. It has been all up from there. Thank you Maggie’s!
The Magdalen House saves lives of countless women every day, and works endlessly to help women recover. It is a wonderful haven of hope to help rebuild lives.
Maggie’s gave me the first real acceptance as an alcoholic through love, compassion and direction. They gave me hope.
Today, by the Grace of a very loving God, so very, very much has changed. I have been reunited with family and have the privilege and the responsibilities of being a mother! I have the honor to work with other women who, like me, lost so much to this disease. I have a great job and...I'm free!
Words cannot express how blessed I feel for all of you. Seeing and hearing what y’all have done for [my daughter] is amazing. Thank you for all you do for all the women that have stayed at The Magdalen House. I have never seen [her] with this peace.
I am so grateful for the women and their life-changing program. They saved my life when it seemed one else could. God bless you, your program, and the residents of Maggie's.

Thank you Maggie's for the love, support, and all you have given us women living with this disease called alcoholism. The support and tools you provided are so essential in our lives to live and prosper as a healthy woman for ourselves and our family. Thank you Maggie's for being there on that day that I had to say "I am an alcoholic, I need help."
