Separating Fact from Fiction and How You Can Help

Education: Request a Presentation2020-06-23T15:31:49-05:00

We believe that education about alcoholism, recovery, and The Magdalen House services is crucial to ending the stigma around alcoholism and helping more alcoholic women and their families get well.

Fact or fiction?

  • One out of every 11 women in the United States is estimated to be an alcoholic. FACT
  • There are more than 250,000 alcoholic women located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, alone. FACT
  • Alcohol is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. FACT
  • Only 6.9% of alcoholic women will get formal help. FACT

Many of our staff are alcoholic women in recovery, all of whom have been personally helped by programs at The Magdalen House. To say that we are passionate about educating our community on alcoholism and recovery is an understatement. If you are a local business or nonprofit, community group, professional organization, or have an audience that you would like to educate, we’d be happy to discuss education opportunities with you.

BUILDING A THRIVING COMMUNITY OF RECOVERED WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES

The Magdalen House Community Outreach Program establishes unilateral and reciprocal partnerships within the community to meet the comprehensive needs of alcoholic women and families that we serve, while allowing us to reach more individuals who want and need our free services. This program not only allows our clients and women in our recovery community to utilize resources that address needs that lie beyond the scope of our services, but it also helps us to improve the quality of services we provide, while engaging with other local organizations to cross-educate one another.
