When an alcoholic woman cannot stop drinking on her own, we
provide a two-week, in-house social detox that helps her establish
a foundation of recovery in a safe, supportive environment.
Social Detox Program
The purpose of the Social Detox Program is to physically separate an alcoholic woman from alcohol to provide her with support and education so that she may learn about her disease and begin working the 12-Steps to achieve sobriety and sustain recovery.

About the Social Detox Program
HELPING ALCOHOLIC WOMEN ACHIEVE SOBRIETY
Since our founding in 1987, the Social Detox Program has been a successful, cornerstone program that has helped change the lives of thousands of women and their families in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and beyond. This program physically removes a woman from alcohol, while providing her with an intensive orientation to the spiritual solution of recovery embodied in The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Simply put, “social detox” is a recovery program where a community of peer volunteers deliver curriculum and support, rather than a traditional “clinical model” of treatment. Our peer-implemented programming is provided by women from the local recovery community who volunteer their time providing daily, solution-focused meetings, working one-on-one through the 12-Steps with clients, and sharing how they recovered from alcoholism. While clients attend multiple meetings and classes throughout the day, each client has the opportunity – and is encouraged – to begin working the 12-Steps.
By cultivating a community of recovered women eager to help the next woman struggling, this program provides a newly sober woman with tools to learn about alcoholism and begin working 12-Step spiritual principles to achieve sobriety.
