How Nexus Recovery Center helps women and their kids

Nexus Recovery Center’s residential programs offer intensive, structured, trauma-responsive services using the 12-Step model as its foundation. The center can house up to 130 women for five to 90 days and services focus on recovery from opioid, alcohol, and benzodiazepine addiction, Nexus said. The center’s programs are designed to address substance use disorder as well as additional barriers to recovery, including social systems, mental health issues, and lack of access to resources.

Nexus Recovery Center has served more than 2.500 women and children in the past year via its comprehensive continuum of care for substance use disorders.

Nexus Partners with Parkland Hospital on prenatal care and more

Nexus’ on-campus programs focus on building thriving mothers, ensuring healthy birth outcomes for infants, and providing a safe and secure place for children to build resilience and thrive, the center said. It’s one of the few treatment centers in Texas that serves pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy. Via a partnership with Parkland Hospital, Nexus provides prenatal care as well as labor and delivery services for pregnant women in treatment.

The center operates a licensed childcare center serving infants through school-aged children so that its clients and alumni can rely on quality care while focusing on their recovery journey. And the Child Development Center offers play therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy for children in its residential programs, accepting childcare assistance through Childcare Group.

  • With a five-year, $11.3 million grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, researchers at UT Dallas’ new Human Nociceptor and Spinal Cord Molecular Signature Center are digging into the causes of chronic pain and new ways to treat it. The center’s leader, Dr. Ted Price, says the data generated “will fundamentally change the way that we think about pain and how we develop therapeutics.”

  • Center chief Sandra Chapman says the gift will help researchers develop strategies and technologies “to make sure our best brain years are ahead of us.”

  • The 27,500-square-foot new HQ—in partnership with UT Dallas—anchors Richardson’s 1,200-acre Innovation Quarter. A masterwork of vision planning years in the making, it’s a catalyst to spark innovation and nuture collaborations—and attract hundreds of entrepreneurial businesses. Six new UT Dallas research centers will initially launch at the IQ HQ, helping to build businesses and commercialize research coming from the nearby university. “We are a global presence,” Richardson Mayor Paul Voelker said at the event. “And the vision that we have here is that we will be a global influencer of technology and innovation.”

  • Chint Power Solutions America, a subsidiary of electronic components maker Chint Group, has made Richardson the new home of its U.S. HQ and Innovation Center—in yet another California HQ move to North Texas. As CPS seeks to grow its presence in the solar and clean energy space, it will use the Innovation Center “to shape what’s next in solar and energy storage technology.”

  • From demolished mall to global destination, a plan 10 years in the making aims to turn the Valley View-Galleria area into an international center for businesses of all sizes. Here’s a new look at what it could offer—and how it could spur dynamic growth in Dallas for decades to come.
