Real Deal Recovery Philosophy

We are Clean living. Our focus is on the reintegration of addicts and alcoholics back into society.

Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Review by Contributors


Founded in 2015, Real Deal Recovery provides sober living support for men who have recently begun their recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. A self-described “clean living company,” Real Deal Recovery runs three Texas-based facilities, in Dallas, Richardson, and Plano. The center’s programming is designed to accommodate clients for six months or longer.


Real Deal Recovery is intended for individuals who have completed inpatient treatment but are not yet ready to return to their everyday lives. While the organization does not provide treatment, clients are required to attend 12-step meetings three times per week, and recovery coaching is included for the first six weeks of residency. For an extra fee, coaching is also available after the initial six weeks of a client’s stay.

The center is highly structured; clients must adhere to a curfew, complete daily chores, find a sponsor, and agree to random urine tests. Within one month of admission, clients must secure a full-time job or enroll in school. Over time, as long as all requirements are met, clients gain privileges, including extended curfew hours and overnight passes.


According to its website, Real Deal Recovery’s staff is comprised of individuals who have personal experience with recovery.


Real Deal Recovery’s Dallas-based home can accommodate up to six men at a time. Bedrooms are furnished with two twin beds and a flat screen TV, and the home includes a full kitchen, dining room, living room, and basement game room. All food is included as part of the program. During their stay, clients are provided with a membership to a local gym, and the home is located within walking distance of a bus stop.

These guys go the extra mile to help in any way possible. I highly recommend Real Deal to anyone looking for affordable sober living in the Dallas area!"

I lived at the house in Northwest Dallas for roughly 3 months, came straight in out of treatment and I have to say it was the best experience I've ever had in a sober living facility. The consistency care and genuine concern for all members of the House were obvious from day one with all the amenities included in the monthly fee it is actually very inexpensive and a great place to begin a program of sobriety or continue a program for those already in the 12-step realm. I would highly recommend any of the locations to someone who wants a place to enjoy life recover and have the support of others who work a strong recovery program.
