It is estimated that one in six American adult men suffers from alcoholism1. To put that into perspective, based on the 2022 population of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex there are an estimated 500,000 men struggling with alcohol in our community. Those who have experienced incredible changes through our current services have requested the creation of a program for men. Men suffering from alcoholism deserve access to free comprehensive services and a continuum of care. Taking a holistic approach to family, our mission is to provide those who suffer from alcoholism with the solution to lifelong recovery and restore families within our communities.
The inclusion of both men and women allows for a 100% increase in the individuals served while only increasing operational costs by an estimated 30%.
Programming will be identical:
- The screening processes
- The First Step program, including intake requirements and supervision, except all staff and volunteers working with men will be male.
- Non-residential programs, recovery meetings, and family support groups.
- House rules and security measures.
However, a new facility will be needed to accommodate this growth.
