"Alpha Home provides an invaluable service, and we look to them for our patients' needs for specialized care," said Methodist Healthcare Ministries' Director of Behavioral Health Services Kathryn Jones, LCSW. "Because Alpha Home focuses not just on treating addiction, but on a much more holistic approach of healing mind, body, and spirit, I am pleased that Methodist Healthcare Ministries has committed to a $2,500 "Bridge to Recovery" sponsorship to support their work. These values of spirituality, integrity and compassion are values we at Methodist Healthcare Ministries strongly align with, to truly make a difference for the least served."

The 10th annual fundraising luncheon celebrates Alpha Home's 50-year-history of offering spiritually-based substance abuse treatment programs. This year's featured speaker is Rena Pederson, an award-winning writer who has interviewed personalities from the Dalai Lama to Julia Child. Pederson is the author of "What's Next: Women Redefining Their Dreams in the Prime of Life," and has been dubbed "one of the most powerful women in Texas" by Texas Monthly.

It serves almost 800 women annually, with an average success rate of 86 percent of women who stop using drugs and alcohol each year. Clients receive confidential, highly-individualized treatment, medical and mental health assessments, as well as counseling, addiction and recovery education, trauma counseling, anger management, GED instruction, relapse prevention education, life skills, and extensive case management services.
