The vision of The Magdalen House is to create and build a community of recovered women and their families – one woman at a time.
We are an agency consisting of a group of dedicated professionals and recovered individuals with a commitment to create no-cost, accessible and effective programming to help alcoholic women and their families obtain long term, sustainable recovery.
The result is an innovative recovery community.
The Magdalen House is not treatment. We are a supportive-educational environment rather than a clinical or medical program. Because we serve people who already know they have “the problem”, we don’t directly provide assessment or clinical counseling services. We do, however, provide an intensive orientation to the solution of recovery embodied in the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Located in East Dallas since 1987, The Magdalen House has played a role in changing the lives of thousands of women and their families in North Texas. Our facility is the first and continues to be the only one of its kind in the area to provide this critical service to the community.

“Today, by the Grace of a very loving God, so very, very much has changed. I have been reunited with family and have the privilege and the responsibilities of being a mother!
