Becky Frey is the 2014 Event Chair for the Nexus Women’s Forum

Click to read at

Click to read at

The Nexus Recovery Center is hosting its second annual Women’s Forum on Teen Female Addiction on Oct. 10 at Communities Foundation of Texas’ Mabel Peters Caruth Center, 5500 Caruth Haven Lane in Dallas.

“The Addicted Teen: Brain Disease and Implications for Families” is presented by the President’s Society of Nexus and sponsored by AT&T, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s and CoHost Catering.

Registration is at 11:30 a.m., and the program starts at noon. The forum is free; lunch will be provided.
The event is not a fundraiser. It’s meant to raise awareness about young women, ages 13 to 17, who are addicted to drugs and alcohol and suffer from trauma such as physical or sexual abuse, incarceration, homelessness and abandonment — and how this affects our city, community and families. The audience for the event will primarily be female community and business leaders, philanthropists, politicians, chamber representatives, educators, media and executives.

Becky Frey, senior vice president of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s, is the 2014 event chair. Nicole Blythe is the operating board president, and Lauren Gilette is the Women’s Auxiliary president.

The introductory speakers will be Frey and Rebecca Crowell, Nexus’ executive director. The featured speaker will be Dr. David Atkinson, an assistant professor of psychiatry at UT Southwestern who specializes in addiction psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry. He graduated from the University of Texas at Houston Medical School and completed his fellowship at the Mayo Clinic.

Addiction is “an epidemic that has been swept under the rug for too long,” Crowell said. “The stigma attached to the disease of addiction has to change. Just like AIDS or breast cancer was not spoken of in the 1980s, and finally found a voice in the community, we must find philanthropists, leaders and supporters who are willing to speak out about the rise of addiction to help our community at large, and offer hope to those who need it most.”

Nexus’ mission is to serve as a link to sobriety, independence and dignity for low-income women and their families who are affected by addiction.

For 44 years, Nexus has been empowering women to break the cycle of addiction. It served 2,262 women and 441 children in fiscal 2014. Nexus is the only treatment provider in Texas that accepts pregnant or newly parenting teens.
