My son was at a place in his life that he was ready for help. DPR was able to give him the help he needed. I believe (from the time I visited) that the people at this facility truly cared about him - and that made it a lot easier on this mom. They also had family sessions where they answered our questions and sometimes just gave us the hug and encouragement that we needed.

This is a beautiful facility. My son received the help that he needed. The staff aren't just there for a paycheck - they actually care about these people. His case manager went above and beyond. She included me in so much of what was going on, even though my son is an adult. His therapist worked with him and also had sessions that included me and his dad. The chef made him feel good about himself - she served 5 star meals and they knew it was made with love. Two staff members actually went to court on behalf of my son several times. I feel like these people and this place became an extension of my family. My son worked the program and when he discharged, he went to DPR Sober Living. It's not in the best part of town, but the people there cared about him and kept him accountable. He is working hard and knows he has a community that is there to support him. He attended an alumni get-together with DPR and had so much fun. When he initially went to the Sober Living facility he also had to attend IOP several days a week and I believe that helped him tremendously. I honestly don't have one bad to thing to say about this place - they saved my son's life and helped him create a life that he is proud to be living.

They Accomadated every need for My Son from Day he made his decision to seek help. He flew to Texas and was picked up at the airport by staff. I was allowed to see him the very next day, visitation were just about over but they let us have a visit anyways. Rooms are spacious and may not be a facility as someone stated but the House is Large,spacious, clean, and just has that home,secure, quiet, inviting feel. The are is perfect quiet and serene. Therapy and couseling on site my son loved everything about the way the had control of everything that was in his best interest. The staff, The Chef, The People i always knew how his progress was coming along and even included in therapy sessions. My son understand about addiction,the triggers,the control and the reason and maintains his sobriety, contact with others that were also in treatment with him, He considers all of them as family. Everyone there made him feel so comfortable, important and loved. At check out it took us all day for him to get everything together because he was truly going to miss Everything and Everyone, ( The Food) The outings, The Therapy, The couseling . The Owners, Management, The Staff I commend on The excellent job they are doing The are all Truly a Blessing. Strengths: Their knowledge in all areas of helping everyone. Knowing exactly what each persons individual needs are from The addiction ,the emotional, therapeutic, dietary. Weakness: Sober Living facility. I think my son was probably sent to the worst one. Was told he had to have a job within 2 weeks or going to be kicked out while another individual was there before him, still there and still unemployed. My son working 3rd shift going to sleep at 6 a.m. was woken up anyways for meditation at 7 even though he just worked at 12 hour shifts ( inconsiderate) people were eating his groceries. And managers of the house had dogs and dog hair everywhere and were offended that he mention about the dogs being all over furniture. Cardinal House of Dalls/Garland definitely Not recommended and was really in awe that Discovery Point Retreat would even be affiliated with a place like that. That would be the only negative on them with me.

This place saved my life! I've tried other places before, but Discovery Point stood out from the rest. The staff TRULY cares about you & your recovery and I couldnt have asked for better people. Even the other patients went above and beyond to help me. If you're looking for a relaxing and peaceful place with great food, comfortable beds, cleanliness, and a REAL chance at recovery, look no further. I promise you wont regret it!

Wow, I'm glad I went. I have been to several recovery programs and this is the first one that really took. Very professional staff. Everyone there had something to offer me and I am eternally grateful. The food was very good, the house and grounds were extremely nice and the administration staff very supportive and caring. They definitely have people's well being in mind. I will definitely be returning for Alumni events!!

The food served was almost always over cooked or under cooked and the girl claims to be a fhead chef smh. I thought they were clients as well because surely if they were Management they would be professional. This place is a real joke. I would never suggest sending anyone here. They do not care about anyone’s recovery they are all about the money. They didn’t help my son at all.

Everything Sharla said was true. My child was there at the time. I personally took my child to this place & did not rent a car because I was told by their telephone person we would be provided car transportation to and from Discovery Pointe. We arrived at DFW at 11:30am, were transported 1 hour south, where they took 6 hours to in-process my child. No one discussed anything with me about how long most patients stay or what their process is. They just gave me 9 different telephone numbers. I did get the tour of the facility (house) that I had demanded from the telephone guy --but my child didn't. Then I asked 6 times about who would be taking me back to the airport? Never got an answer but as , one of the owners, was leaving for the day, she said I should try to find someone soon or there would be no one available to take me to DFW. I was eventually dropped off in a very deserted part of the airport & had to find a bus to take me to the airplane departure area. Staff sat on the dirty floor in front of the door while going through my child's luggage for contraband, placing all the clean folded clothes on the floor, then shoving the clothes back in a messy pile. I was very uncomfortable leaving my child there but my child insisted they would be ok bacause they wanted to at least go through Detox. Upon my return home, I was still upset so I sent the owner a very long email stating all my concerns. I NEVER got an email or telephone response from her or anyone but I did get call from the director of admissions for Niznik Health Systems. He tried to waste my time telling me his story of how he was an addict--to which I said I was not interested. During one of my child's few/rare calls, I was told that during Detox my child vomited in bed, no one came to clean it. My child had no shower for first 2 days there because they had no towels & toothbrushes available & would not give access to the brush that was brought in the luggage. These people are the most unprofessional, immoral & unethical people and are just in it for the money At exactly 4 weeks, after our child's admittance, they called my husband to offer to pay for our child's ticket if they stay at least 45 days. When we refused, they denied all contact with our child for 10 days and told our child we were dysfunctional people & our child should consider abandoning their familys, & go to their "sober-living homes" (only partial or no insurance coverage) in Calif.- they offer to pay for the airline ticket, with the intention of patients getting re-addicted & returning to this place in 6 mths,. The patients promised 2-->15 min calls per day--my child went days with no phone calls, they gave us 9 phone numbers & never got an answer to calls, vm, texts & emails. Doctor has no bedside manner--tells patients, "you're an addict, it doesn't matter if you're in pain." My child is lactose intolerant & they promised to buy "lactaid milk" but everytime they tried to buy food & supplies for the facility, their "corporate card" was maxed out. My list of things they did wrong is too long for this review but now that my child is home.

I came here six months ago to do something about my meth addiction. To be honest I didn’t know what I was getting myself into but I took the chance. With the help and great support from all the therapists and case manager I finished the whole program without leaving.

My daughter and her boyfriend were discharged early with no notice and dropped off at the airport with no transportation provided to get home although it was promised at admission. They were taken to Love Field instead of DFW with no airlines flying to the city they needed to get home. They were stuck at the airport with no money and no way to get home. Apparently they were kicked out for holding hands and hugging. My daughter was abandoned at the airport with no money or phone, I wouldn’t trust them with your child.

My son came into this facility after having a seizure. He was withdrawing from benzos. I was worried about his health as you would imagine. They safely detoxed him before putting him in their treatment programs. I noticed a difference in my son just after a month.

Thanks to the people of Discovery Point for making it possible to change my life after it became unmanageable. I became powerless over alcohol. It was a gift that through your treatment and therapists, I was able to stop all my bad habits. I never have to be alone again.

This was the first rehab that I went to and I am glad to say that this will probably be my last. It was great that this facility had detox and all the other levels of care since many of my friends had to go to 2 separate places. It was really a comfortable and enjoyable place to be at.

Discovery point retreat changed my life. I came in broken, angry, and miserable. I was at the lowest I had ever been. Not only had i lost everything and everyone i had also lost who i was as a person. Discovery point and the staff there have given me hope and a chance at a better life. I would highly recommend this treatment center to everyone and anyone that who wants to change their life and learn how to be a better person. The building blocks discovery points gives you is truly a blessing. The recovery coaches helped push me through to the end. It was such an accomplishment and a long journey and I couldn�t have done it without everyone there. If you are looking for help you have come to the right place. Thank you discovery point for all the amazing things you have done for me. Love you all!

The friends I made while during my stay I still talk to daily and we support each other and have friendships that will last forever. The food is really good so hats off to the chefs! The house is really comfortable and always clean. I truly was able to find myself because I was lost and broken but now I am centered and sober and taking big steps in life! I highly recommend this spot if you want to help yourself and start recovering. Thank you Discovery Point for changing my life. I love you guys!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Discovery Point Retreat for their amazing work, it's only because of them that I am alive now. I would like to thank all the staff who stood beside me throughout my journey. It wasn't easy, but it was the best thing I did for myself in a long time. Before I met the counselors at Discovery Point, I was a lost soul and so hopeless, I was not even sure if I will survive the next day. Without the help of this amazing rehabilitation center it would never have been possible for me to regain my faith in life.Before coming to Discovery, I was highly skeptical about the methods used in most rehabilitation centers. However, now I am so thankful and happy to make this choice. I would recommend this Discovery Point Retreat to everyone who would like to have a life-transforming experience and want to have a safe environment away from drugs/alcohol. I felt so uplifted when I arrived, I knew I was at the right place, and not once I doubted my choice, Thank to the amazing best drug rehabilitation center called Discovery Point Retreat for saving my life and giving me a second chance to make everything right and this time over have a good go at my life. Thanks to all stuff.
