Event Description:  An informative and inspiring luncheon, featuring keynote speaker Will Bracken Evans, a local Park Cities resident with almost 30 years of recovery.  Our speaker will share his story about battling the disease of addiction and how his life has changed since being in sobriety for 3 decades.  The event honors one of the Auxiliary’s founding members, Cai Glackin and her husband, Robin.
 
Tickets:                      Sponsorships, underwriting are available priced from $2,500 to $20,000. Individual tickets begin at $200 with limited availability.
 
Information:          Visit the web site at www.nexusrecovery.org, email                                                        lgibbs417@gmail.com or call 972-322-8416.  
 
Mission Statement: The mission of the Women’s Auxiliary of Nexus is to support and promote the interests of Nexus Recovery Center by building a strong and active membership, by stimulating public awareness and by helping in the financial support of Nexus’s services and projects.
 
In the course of the past 20 years, the Nexus Women’s Auxiliary has been able to donate close to $3 million towards services and projects needed for the women, adolescents, and children of Nexus.  In addition, $365,000 was also raised for the Capital Campaign in 2009.
The Women’s Auxiliary also gives their time and services to help the residents by providing massage nights, children’s parties, staff appreciation lunches, and other volunteer activities each month. Because of a strong and active membership, the Auxiliary members continue to spread awareness of addiction throughout the community by hosting annual events such as the Holiday Bazaar and Spring Luncheon.
Statistics: In 2016, Nexus served 2,310 women and teen and 333 children, including 62 Nexus born babies. The January 2016, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report stated that the United States is experiencing an “epidemic” of drug overdose deaths. Since 2000 opioid overdose deaths have increased by 200%. The problem is prevalent enough that President Obama has announced federal level support to address the issue. In Texas, heroin use has increased for the last decade, with “cheese heroin” use specifically increasing in Dallas and eventually spreading statewide.
Nationally, approximately 32% of all drug treatment facilities offer specialized treatment for adult women and 13% report providing special services for pregnant and postpartum women. Currently, Nexus Recovery Center is on of the few drug and alcohol treatment facilities in Texas providing treatment services for pregnant and parenting adult women and teens.
 
History: Established in 1971, by 1974, Nexus programs included therapy and life skills training and housed 17 women. In 1990 the facility relocated to a 12-acre campus in east Dallas to provide a wider array of services. The new space enabled Nexus to become a leader in treatment for women by allowing children to accompany their mothers into treatment. In 1991, Nexus expanded the adult women program to 40 beds. In 1993 because no treatment providers would accept pregnant or newly parenting teens Nexus began filling this service gap. In 1999, the Child Development Center was built to meet the needs of accompanying children. In 1997, Nexus opened a secondary site for outpatient services. In 2012 the adolescent program expanded to 30 beds.
 
Joint Commission accredited since 2006, a rare accomplishment in the nonprofit sector due to the high standards required to earn and maintain. Nexus is committed to providing top-notch care for low-income women and their children.
