The Right Step North Dallas Philosophy
Right Step has been treating patients with chemical dependency issues for more than 20 years. The Dallas North facility offers outpatient alcohol and drug addiction treatment for men and women over 18. Clients spend 10 hours a week in individual and group sessions learning how to reframe addictive thought patterns, utilize healthy coping skills, and rely on 12-step principles to live a productive and fulfilling life in sobriety. The rehab is designed for individuals who are working or in school and cannot commit to inpatient residential care, but still need a treatment program to maintain a sober lifestyle.
Areas of Specialization
Clients are invited to take advantage of up to two years of no-cost aftercare support upon the successful completion of treatment. Program offerings include services such as counselor referrals and weekly group therapy sessions. Clients are encouraged to collaborate with their peers in order to strengthen support networks and reinforce positive recovery strategies.
Family Therapy Group
In Family Therapy Group, family members of those affected by addiction process the emotions, experiences, and thought processes that often arise when watching a loved one battle substance abuse. Family group therapy is available independent of Intensive Outpatient services.
Meet the Staff
I am a licensed professional counselor and a licensed chemical dependency counselor who began working in the addiction treatment field in the 1980s. Prior to becoming affiliated with Right Step, I managed three different residential programs and two outpatient programs. My skill sets include interventions, therapy, crisis intervention, case management, and developing and overseeing high-quality addiction treatment programs.
Our master's level therapists provide counseling, process groups, relapse prevention planning and free aftercare for two years for adults and adolescents.
Our programs have a reputation for helping people who have lost hope that they'll be able to turn their lives around. I approach each client as an individual rather than using a cookie-cutter approach and emphasize practical skills that will help you sustain your recovery long-term. Over 80% of clients who commit to follow the recovery process with us go on to stay sober years later.

ABOUT THE RIGHT STEP NORTH DALLAS
Founded in 1990, the Right Step runs more than 20 rehab facilities in Texas, making it one of the largest private chemical dependency treatment providers in the Southwest. This facility in North Dallas is located near Harry Moss Park, 10 miles north of downtown Dallas. It offers outpatient programming and aftercare for adults.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The Right Step’s outpatient programs are based on the 12-Steps and Positive Recovery, a program developed by the organization’s chief medical officer. It uses meditation and other exercises to help clients discover the meaning and purpose in their lives without drugs and alcohol.
Clients in the adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) strive to create a sober routine, change thoughts and behaviors, and establish a support network. Sessions include 12-step meetings, individual and group counseling, gender-specific groups, addiction education, family groups, relapse prevention education, and spirituality awareness. Individual counseling sessions are also scheduled regularly, and Friday evenings are set aside for Family Friday.
The program length varies, but typically lasts eight weeks. Groups meet for approximately three hours, three times a week, in the morning or evening.
After the IOP, all clients are eligible for a free, two-year aftercare program consisting of weekly support groups. And a 12-month continuing care program — called Javelin Continuing Care — links each individual with a coach who checks in regularly via phone, text, and email. This helps to ensure that clients maintain the progress they made during treatment.
The Right Step’s medical director is board certified in both family medicine and addiction medicine. According to its website, the organization also employs master’s level therapists, though details of the staff’s credentials at this facility are not currently available.
