My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Nexus Recovery Center Incorporated, Dallas, TX, USA
When I walked through the front doors of Nexus Recovery Center I was a “hot mess”. I did not know much about it other than my CPS worker had told me if I wanted to keep my son I would have to complete the program and so I was willing to give it a go.
Now what happened while I was there was a complete miracle and transformation. I was provided classes that educated me on this disease of addiction that I have. I received first hand experience and guidance from the counselors who were so willing to help me get back on track and explain to me that I was not an awful person. I just had a disease that needed to be arrested. I had complete faith and trust in my counselors because some of them were recovering addicts and it was proof that this program worked. I was in a safe environment and surrounded by other women and children who were on the same path as I and the bond we all shared was essential in our recovery. Nexus offered childcare so that I was fully able to take advantage of classes without worry that my son would be ok. Parenting classes were also made available and I gained many of the tools I still use today in dealing with my children.
After completing Nexus they supplied the resources in finding my son and I housing which gave us the much needed stability in our lives. I am happy to say that I now have over two years clean and I owe it all to Nexus. I developed healthy friendships during my stay that I still cherish today. I remain connected through the aftercare/alumni program and was able to begin working again with the privilege of helping at risk youth. I help give back once a week during the Narcotics Anonymous meeting at Nexus helping new clients with a positive message and a sense of hope. Nexus was instrumental and the key in getting my life back together. Today, I am a healthy and stable daughter, sister, and friend but most importantly a better MOTHER. I highly recommend Nexus to any woman seeking help from active addiction and especially to all mothers seeking family based treatment.
