Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome trauma. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
    Long-term taper options like Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) can increase success rates by reducing cravings, urges, and withdrawal symptoms. Managing these symptoms strengthens long-term recovery and prevents relapse, which can be lifesaving.

ABOUT DISCOVERY POINT RETREAT

Located outside the pastoral community of Waxahachie, 30 miles south of Dallas, Texas, Discovery Point Retreat is an upscale treatment facility offering a full continuum of programming for adults seeking treatment for chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. The facility offers a residential treatment program, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). The facility also provides on-site medical detox services, which only 36 (8.4 percent) residential facilities in Texas provide.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, clients participate in an initial substance abuse and mental health assessment to help clinicians determine an appropriate level of care and individualized treatment plan. If necessary, clients may first undergo the facility's detoxification protocol. Discovery Point Retreat utilizes non-addictive medications to alleviate the discomfort of withdrawal. This Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT) program can make detox easier. In Texas, 11,701 (2.8 percent) clients participated in MAT programs in 2017. The supervised detox process typically lasts approximately seven days.

If a client requires a highly structured schedule and supervision to obtain and sustain initial sobriety, the client may be referred to the residential program. Discovery Point Retreat utilizes evidence-based modalities, namely cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), 12-step immersion, and recreational therapy to treat its clientele.

Through CBT approaches, clinicians help clients to increase mindfulness, identify patterned behavior, and modify irrational thinking. During residential treatment, clients participate in both group and individual counseling sessions to identify the links between destructive thinking and behavior. Clients are also introduced to the principles and practices of the 12-step program. Along with attending 12-step meetings, Discovery Point Retreat emphasizes surrendering to a Higher Power. Clients attend off-site chapel services, 12-step group sessions, and daily Bible study classes.

In addition to evidence-based approaches, Discovery Point Retreat facilitates a range of therapeutic recreational activities for its residents, which includes music, art, equine, and dance therapy sessions. Residents also have access to the nearby walking trails, a fishing pond, and a fully equipped gym, and clients also regularly enjoy off-site outings to Dallas for concerts, sporting events, and more.

Before completing the program, clinicians help clients form acomprehensive discharge plans, which may include encouraging the client to utilize one of the facility's outpatient programs as a "step-down" aftercare service and/or referrals to community-based resources.

Discovery Point Retreat's PHP caters to individuals with co-occurring disorders and a history of relapse. It is one of the 232 (53.8 percent) of facilities in Texas that offer mental health services as well as substance abuse treatment. Although programming is similar to residential care, clients reside off-site each night. The facility's IOP is less intensive and involves group and individual therapy, as well as regular drug testing.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Discovery Point Retreat's treatment services are provided by a team of masters level clinicians, which includes psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors, specialized recreational counselors, and case managers.

Clients also have access to the facility's private fishing pond and nearby hiking and horseback riding trails.

I had a family member get admitted was promised a phone call the following day, no phone call. Sat I called the 1-800 and left a message to receive an unprofessional return call from the CM Supervisor. Its Monday now, impossible to call the facility directly and every person I have spoken to over the phone has been unhelpful and way below any level of compassion that I have ever experienced. When you call the 469 number there is only a voicemail. This facility is scary its out in a rural area with no direct dial phone number nor anyone to answer their phones. Additionally, they refuse to acknowledge consent forms signed during admission they were really fine with speaking to me. Its not professional

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.

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!
