ABOUT SOLUTIONS OF NORTH TEXAS:
Transitional Living – Our laser focused mission is and always has been to provide superior housing for men and women who are currently struggling with alcoholism and/or drug addiction. SoberDorm – Our Student Program. With our campus adjacent to TWU, UNT and just 8 miles from NCTC. Our proximity of higher education options make our SoberDorm Program an excellent choice for students in recovery. Interventions – Whether In-House or Contracted with one of our many Endorsed Providers, sometimes an Intervention is your very best option to leverage an Affected Loved-One into Recovery before it’s too late. More The Family Solution – is a program that involves the Entire Family utilizing family meetings, case management, drug/alcohol screening, monitoring, education, and accountability to one another. Once the family unit is working together as its own support system the chances for permanent recovery are considerably increased. Failure to Launch – Often we come across a family housing and supporting an adult child who will not leave the nest for one reason or another. Out of our experience, we have developed a very fair and supportive program leveraging the adult child into accountability and self-sufficiency. Case Management – From Progress Reviews to Exit Strategies, we simply do not just “house” men and women. We are preparing them for a self-sufficient life in the community among their peers. Since one cannot hide from drugs and alcohol, we must acquire the necessary skills to live and work like everyone else. Our Case Management by design keeps our residents on the path of progress and points out when they are starting to veer off course. Drug/Alcohol Testing – ($35.00) Using the most accurate test in the market place, the MEDTOX Sure-Screen you can be certain of the results. 12-Step Program – The very foundation of our recovery programs is based in 12-Step programs of action as laid out in the Basic Text of Alcoholics Anonymous.
