T.C.M.E.R.F.

History

We opened our doors in February of 1971 at its original location of 900 Southland. Our executive offices and methadone dispensing clinic remain at this address today. The counseling unit is located in an adjacent building at 904 Southland. Our Board of Directors is comprised of various professionals from throughout the community who give of their time and effort to ensure that the therapeutic needs of Tarrant County’s indigent drug abusing population are met with respect to opiate abuse.

TCMERF owes a debt of gratitude to the Tarrant County Medical Society for providing initial seed monies, and to the Sid Richardson Foundation for helping to sustain its programs while a NIDA grant application was being prepared and submitted.  Other concerned individuals including former State Senator Mike Moncrief, other local politicians and agencies also contributed vital support.

While the foundation has offered a variety of substance abuse treatment related services throughout its years of operation, opioid has always remained its constant modality. TCMERF has established its presence in the local mental health field and is, today, a respected entity in the community’s network of service providers. 

Its Board of Directors is comprised of physicians and other professionals who give of their time and effort to ensure that the therapeutic needs of Tarrant County’s drug abusing indigent population are met with respect to heroin and other drugs of abuse. TCMERF’s continuum of care offers its indigent clients professional treatment services that may be otherwise unavailable to them in the area.  Dedicated staff offers therapeutic treatment with a holistic approach, attending to all of the clients’ needs.

TCMERF networks with many service agencies and refers its clients to these programs to ensure that their needs are met.

You are encouraged to call and/or visit our facilities.  Our President/CEO and/or Program Coordinator will be happy to further discuss our services with you.
