Solutions of North Texas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, specifically designed to combat alcoholism and/or drug addiction. We specialize in working with men and women who have, for one reason or another, failed at sobriety a number of times. They may have graduated from a number of treatment centers and may have criminal charges or convictions as a result of their addiction(s). Our residential program is for adult men and women who are aware of their addiction and have a willingness and desire to make a permanent change in their lives. Each individual is then assessed, aided in obtaining gainful employment, and guided toward financial accountability and independence. A two-fold system meets all their needs and long-term recovery. Using the 12-step model of recovery, residents are taught how to stay sober permanently and how to live as happy independent adults. This is the ultimate goal of our residential program.

Board of Directors Our Board of Directors are legally and financially responsible for our organizations conduct, and our continued growth depends on these dedicated professionals. Scott Wisenbaker – Founding Executive Director Scott spent his early years in pursuit of his music career, often experiencing moderate success only to watch it all crumble due to to his addiction. In 1995, Scott was introduced to the solution that changed his life forever and decided to dedicate his life to helping others find that same solution. After years of working with addicts and alcoholics to find a solution to their problem, Scott opened Solutions of North Texas in 2006 in the hopes of providing more. Solutions of North Texas and its unique approach to re-entry captured the attention of The White House, the substance abuse industry, and the community. Our unique recovery model and critical collaborations, have been featured on newscasts from KDAF 33, CBS 11, NBC-DFW Ch.5, and WFAA Ch.8.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
