Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

The vision of The Magdalen House is to build a thriving community of recovered women and their families — one woman at a time.

About Us

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 achieve sobriety and build a foundation of recovery.
  • Next Step program: 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.
  • Meetings and Fellowship: 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.
  • Resources and Education: Community partnerships help us connect alcoholic women and their families to resources that include sober living, counseling, and women’s health. At the same time, education initiatives allow us to reach and serve more alcoholic women.

History

The Magdalen House was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1987 by four female alcoholics. These women saw a vital need: a safe place in North Texas for an alcoholic woman with no money and no insurance to get help. After visiting a facility in Houston that was providing a safe place for women to detox from alcohol at no cost, they wanted to offer a similar experience for women in North Texas. Within months, The Magdalen House was born. What was once the dream of our founders has become a reality: a flourishing recovery community for alcoholic women and their families. Read More
