How Common is Substance Abuse in Texas?
According to a 2019 study by the University of Texas Addiction Research Institute:
- Methamphetamine is the top drug threat reported by the DEA Field Divisions that cover Texas.
- Methamphetamine and cocaine problems continue to increase throughout the state of Texas, especially in major metropolitan areas like Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
- Cocaine is ranked as the #2 (Houston), #3 (El Paso), and #4 (Dallas) threat by the DEA Field Divisions covering Texas.
- Over half (51%) of marijuana treatment admissions in Texas involving a primary problem with cannabis in 2018 reported no other drug use, although 20% also reported use of alcohol. For the first half of 2019, cannabis ranked as the #2 drug seized and identified by toxicology laboratories at 26% of all drugs.
What Are the Signs of Substance Abuse?
It’s not always easy to recognize the warning signs of addiction and substance abuse.

How to Help Someone Struggling With Substance Abuse
If you’ve observed changes in physical appearance or behavior that suggest substance abuse, you may be uncertain about the best way to proceed. That’s understandable. After all, you may not want to cause conflict or risk pushing your loved one further away. But it’s worth having a conversation — and sharing your support. At Discovery Point Retreat, we can help you with intervention support, so you have the tools needed for a more productive discussion. Remember, your overall goal is to get your loved one to agree to substance abuse treatment so he or she can begin to heal and recover.
What Can You Expect from Substance Abuse Treatment at Discovery Point Retreat?
First of all, you can expect our full commitment to your recovery. Many of the staff here have experienced addiction firsthand, and we understand the challenges that come with it. Our compassionate team will begin with an intake assessment and get to know you (or your loved one) a little better, including your medical history, addiction history and any known mental health disorders. Then, we’ll work together to develop an individualized recovery plan just for you.
In many cases, treatment will begin with medically assisted alcohol or drug detox to help rid your body of addictive substances. Don’t worry — we’ll manage your withdrawal symptoms throughout the process, so you’re always safe and comfortable during this important phase.
Then, depending on the recommendations outlined in your recovery plan, you may move into residential inpatient treatment, where you’ll have the opportunity to live on-site and experience total immersion in healing therapies. Or, you may be ready for our partial hospitalization program or intensive outpatient program — which involves participating in rehab a certain number of hours per week but returning home at the end of the day.
Along the way, you’ll have so many opportunities to explore and enjoy your newfound sobriety. In addition to traditional substance abuse treatment, you can experience holistic options like equine therapy, recreational therapy, wellness and more.
At Discovery Point Retreat, we understand the complexity of addiction. And we’re dedicated to helping every person we encounter through this journey of healing and recovery. The core of our accredited drug rehab program is our behavioral therapy treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and more.
A comprehensive, holistic approach to treatment is best for long-term success in alcohol recovery. Our alcohol rehab is about treating more than just the harmful behavior or withdrawal symptoms; it addresses all of the aspects of your life, so you can build a solid foundation for long-term sobriety.

Substance use is often a way of self-medicating to reduce symptoms of underlying mental health conditions. For co-occurring mental disorders, we provide dual diagnosis treatment, which treats substance abuse and mental health disorders simultaneously.
