Top Addiction Counselors in Dallas, TX

The television show Dallas was known for its excesses: big cars, big houses, big egos … and big substance abuse problems. Characters on the series struggled with alcohol and drugs. Real-life residents of the large Texas city also struggle with substance abuse and addiction. Alcohol was a factor in 159 traffic deaths in 2016 in Dallas County, the city’s home county. Such deaths are tragedies, especially since Dallas, TX has addiction counselors who are available to help. A few of these counselors include:
