The Magdalen House is a nonprofit 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.
We are committed to helping alcoholic women achieve long-term, sustainable recovery through spiritually based, comprehensive programming. We present the simple problem of alcoholism, along with a practical application of the solution.
- Social Detox program: A two-week residential program for an alcoholic woman who wants to stop drinking but cannot. She is provided with the education and resources to establish sobriety and build a foundation of recovery in a safe and supportive environment.
- Next Step program: A three-phase (approx. three-month), non-residential program for an alcoholic woman at any stage of recovery. She is provided with support and structure to sustain her sobriety while growing in her recovery from alcoholism.
- Meetings and Fellowship: Solution-focused classes, meetings, and workshops are provided seven days a week, 365 days a year. These are open to any alcoholic woman, at any stage of recovery. We also have dedicated volunteers who provide Family Support to families and loved ones of alcoholics and addicts.
- Resources and Education: Building partnerships in our community to connect alcoholic women and their families to resources that include sober living, counseling, women’s health, and more while educating our community on alcoholism.
