November 2022

This month at Nexus Recovery Center, Security Office Supervisor Sherman Shaw shows off our enhanced security with a key card-enabled front entrance, and we discuss the graduation ceremony that we recently held for our clients. We also cover ASC’s Holiday Market at the Beehive Dallas and tell you about our new Nighttime with Nexus campus tour. Please see below for more details of everything going on at Nexus!


Nexus Enhances Security with Key Card Entry

To protect the woman and children who reside on our campus, Nexus has invested in enhanced security throughout the facility. Security Office Supervisor Sherman Shaw recently demonstrated the new key card reader added to the Administration Building’s main entrance along La Prada Drive. These doors will remain locked except for during peak admissions times. All Nexus staff have all been issued key cards, and our front reception desk is staffed 24/7 to allow visitors to enter and exit when necessary. While it may seem like a small change, this key card entry is a big step to improving the safety and security of our clients and staff!


Join Us for Nighttime for Nexus!

On Wednesday, December 7 at 5:30pm, we’re hosting our first Nighttime with Nexus campus tour. Like Noontime with Nexus, this a mission tour led by Nexus CEO Heather Ormand, focused on the heart and soul of the center’s mission and our future pathways to possibilities.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the work we do, meet key staff, ask questions, and get ideas about ways to become involved. You’ll receive behind-the-scenes updates about our organization and hear powerful stories directly from Nexus team members.

The event is free – all you have to do is register!


Nexus Clients Celebrate Graduation

Nexus has started holding graduation ceremonies for clients who have made their recovery through both our residential and recovery support services. These Nexus alums really enjoyed the celebration of their accomplishments, with our current residential clients cheering on the graduates as they threw their caps in the air. It was such an emotional moment for everyone involved!
