25 Years of Solutions

Started in 1995, Solutions Outpatient Services began serving the Dallas community and beyond with its intensive outpatient treatment program. Over the past 25 years, Solutions has helped thousands of people on the road to recovery.

Each year we celebrate the recovery of our SOS Alumni, friends, and those that support Solutions with an annual banquet and guest speaker.

25th Anniversary Banquet

In response to COVID-19, Solutions Outpatient Services has postponed the 25th Anniversary Banquet.

Thank you for your support!
