Drug and alcohol abuse is a serious problem nationwide, and Grapevine is no exception. Tarrance County has recently seen an increase in drug abuse, and Harris County has seen the most opioid-related poison control calls in the state.
The realization that you or someone you love has a substance use disorder and needs help to recover can be distressing. But it’s important to think optimistically about overcoming an addiction. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, hope is the foundation of recovery, and holding onto hope for a better future helps you stay motivated and energized along your journey.
Our holistic behavioral treatment programs at Discovery Point Retreat in Dallas instill hope by helping you develop the skills and tools you need to enjoy a life free of drugs and alcohol. We use a combination of traditional and complementary, research-based treatment therapies to help you learn better ways to cope with negative emotions, stress, cravings, and other triggers that can cause a setback. Cognitive-behavioral therapy helps you identify and change problematic thought and behavior patterns that lead to unhealthy habits and a cycle of recovery and relapse. Complementary therapies like art therapy, mindfulness and meditation improve your confidence, self-awareness, and self-esteem. Additional services address other issues like mental health conditions, legal problems, and unemployment.

Once you realize and admit to yourself that you need help stopping your drug or alcohol abuse, your path to recovery comes into focus. If you can’t stop using drugs or alcohol even though you want to or have tried to, treatment helps you identify and develop certain critical coping skills and address underlying issues that keep you from sustaining sobriety on your own for any length of time. Through your program, you’ll learn all about addiction and what it takes to recover, and you’ll make essential lifestyle changes that support recovery. You’ll improve your mental health, develop positive thought patterns, and begin to create the life you envision for yourself.
A comprehensive behavioral healthcare treatment program at Discovery Point Retreat has many benefits over trying to recover on your own using sheer willpower. Treatment helps break the cycle of addiction at its roots. During your program, you’ll identify your triggers and learn to cope with them. The skills you learn, such as setting personal boundaries, changing negative thought patterns, and staying present in your emotions, will improve your life in far-reaching ways, positively impacting your relationships and your level of happiness and satisfaction in life.
Drug rehab begins with detox, which involves withholding all drugs so that your brain function can normalize. During detox, which only addresses physical dependence on drugs, your care providers will create an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan to address the addiction. Your treatment plan will indicate the best level of care to meet your needs. Discovery Point Retreat offers a full continuum of care, from detox to residential and outpatient programs.
Residential treatment is the most intensive program we offer. It involves living at our recovery residence while undergoing treatment. Residential treatment is ideal for people who need a lot of support and supervision in the early weeks and months of recovery. Our residential programs take place in comfortable, modern facilities that feel like home, where your peers in recovery come to feel like family. Once you complete your residential program, your aftercare plan will likely include ongoing outpatient treatment.
Outpatient programs involve attending programming at our facility during the day or evening and returning home each night to sleep. Outpatient treatment works best for people who have a high level of motivation to recover and who have ample support at home and in the community. Discovery Point Retreat offers three levels of outpatient behavioral treatment. The most intensive is our partial hospitalization program, or PHP, which involves the most programming hours each week. One level down is our intensive outpatient program, which involves fewer weekly hours and is less restrictive than PHP. The least restrictive program is outpatient treatment, which may involve just a few therapy sessions a week.
Aftercare plans are an integral part of all of our treatment programs. Your aftercare plan will be individualized to reflect your ongoing needs. Aftercare plans may include ongoing therapy, help with housing or education, and continued monitoring of any co-occurring mental disorders.
Because drinking alcohol is both legal and socially acceptable, a common misconception is that alcohol abuse is less harmful than illicit drug abuse. But alcohol addiction causes problems that are just as intense as those caused by drug addiction, and it can have devastating health effects. Alcohol addiction, like drug addiction, can lead to relationship, financial, and legal problems, and it almost always progresses if it’s not treated.
Alcohol addiction treatment helps you stop drinking once and for all by helping you develop the mindset and lifestyle that supports a life of recovery. Like treatment for drug addiction, alcohol rehab starts with detox, which involves medical supervision and FDA-approved medications to ease withdrawal symptoms. Treatment ends with aftercare, which offers support and services during early solo recovery.
At Discovery Point Retreat, your recovery journey takes place in a large homelike facility surrounded by serene green spaces for recreation and relaxation. In these lush surroundings, you’ll explore a range of issues and develop a higher level of self-awareness. You’ll dream big and set achievable goals, and you’ll learn how to have fun and relax again without needing alcohol to do it.
If you find that you spend a lot of time drinking or recovering from drinking, or you want to quit but can’t seem to do it, it may be time to get help through Discovery Point Retreat. Contact us today at 855-306-8054 for a free and confidential consultation.
Discovery Point Retreat is an easy commute from Grapevine. While many people choose an out-of-state rehab for a variety of reasons, staying put at home when possible can be great for your recovery in a number of ways.
For many people, family involvement in treatment can help improve the chances of long-term successful sobriety. Discovery Point Retreat offers family therapy and other family programming to help family members learn more about addiction and how to support you in the best ways possible while taking good care of themselves. The close proximity of Discovery Point Retreat to Grapevine makes it easier for your family to participate in your recovery, whether you’re in a residential or outpatient program.
Attending a treatment program close to home also gives you the opportunity to develop new relationships with other sober people. Having a solid support network is essential in recovery, and while you’re at Discovery Point Retreat, you’ll meet lots of other people who can relate to what you’re going through. You’ll develop strong bonds with others in recovery, and these bonds often transcend treatment and turn into strong friendships that offer mutual support and understanding for years to come. During treatment, you’ll also set out to explore ways to have fun at home without drugs or alcohol, so that by the time treatment ends, you have a list of local activities that offer healthy ways to relax and enjoy life.
Outpatient treatment near home gives you the opportunity to put into action right away in the “real” world the skills you’re learning in rehab. Changing your lifestyle is central to successful recovery, and outpatient treatment allows you and your family to make those changes in real time. Once treatment ends, your new habits are in place, and your chances of long-term success increase.
There is no single, set cost for drug or alcohol treatment. How much treatment costs depends on the type of program you need, how long it lasts, and whether you require additional services, such as medical or mental health care.
It’s important to consider the cost of rehab an investment in your health and in your and your family’s future. Without treatment, addiction almost always worsens, but with treatment, your chances of ending your addiction for good and restoring function to your life dramatically increase. In recovery, you can find purpose and meaning in life and enjoy authentic happiness.
If you have health insurance, your policy may cover some or all of the costs of addiction treatment. To learn whether your insurance plan covers rehab, contact your insurance company, or visit their website. You can also contact us at Discovery Point Retreat. Our helpful staff can verify your insurance and determine what it will cover.
If you don’t have health insurance, or you are under-insured, call us at 855-306-8054. We can help you explore a number of alternative options for covering the cost of treatment. The most important thing is that you get the help you need to end your addiction and restore your life.
The first step of any treatment plan is detox. Discovery Point Retreat offers medical detox, which involves supervision by medical personnel as well as medications that can be given to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms that may occur. During drug detox at Discovery Point Retreat, comfort and safety are the top priorities as your body rids itself of drugs and your brain function begins to return to normal.
Detox starts with an initial assessment during intake that helps your team of care providers develop the best detox plan for your needs. It’s important to be honest about the substances you’ve taken and in what amounts so that providers will know how to make detox as safe and comfortable as possible.
During detox, you may experience certain withdrawal symptoms. Opioid withdrawal can cause flu-like symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, and muscle aches. Withdrawal from stimulants like cocaine and meth can produce severe depression, insomnia, and agitation. FDA-approved medications can be administered as needed to reduce these symptoms. Medication-assisted treatment for an opioid use disorder can help normalize brain function and reduce cravings during detox and beyond so that you can focus on addressing the complexities of the addiction.
Detoxing from prescription medications like Klonopin, Valium, or Xanax, which are classified as benzodiazepines, can produce dangerous symptoms like elevated blood pressure and heart rate. Detox for these medications will involve tapering off doses to prevent withdrawal altogether.
During detox, you’ll participate in a variety of assessments and therapies to help your care providers develop a comprehensive treatment plan for addressing the addiction once detox is complete. Your treatment plan will be tailored to address your specific needs and issues. Once detox is complete, you’ll transition to treatment, starting at the level of care that’s right for you.
Detox at Discovery Point Retreat is anything but cold and clinical. Our warm, welcoming detox center promotes feelings of wellness, and our program includes a variety of complementary therapies that help you relax and experience positive emotions during detox. If you have questions about the detox process or other aspects of treatment, call us at 855-306-8054 to speak with a knowledgeable and compassionate staff member. All calls are confidential.
Alcohol detox works similarly to drug detox. The primary difference is that unlike opioid and stimulant detox, withdrawing from alcohol can be dangerous or, in rare cases, fatal. Supervised medical detox is essential for your safety and wellbeing during alcohol detox. Discovery Point Retreat’s alcohol detox program involves FDA-approved medications to alleviate the severity of withdrawal symptoms like nausea, headache, insomnia, and anxiety.
In some cases, severe alcohol withdrawal may occur. This is known as delirium tremens, or DTs, and it can produce symptoms like seizures, hallucinations, and dangerous shifts in blood pressure and heart rate. During medical detox, a team of physicians and nurses will monitor your condition and provide clinical interventions as needed to ensure your safety.
Once drug or alcohol detox is complete, treatment for the addiction begins. Addiction is a complex disease of the brain, and it almost always has underlying causes, such as a history of trauma, chronic stress, or a co-occurring mental illness. In order to successfully treat addiction, these underlying issues must be addressed. In doing so, you’ll let go of negative thoughts and feelings about yourself and the world, and you’ll learn to effectively cope with the inevitable hardships that life brings. Treatment will empower you to create the life you want for yourself by helping you develop the tools and skills you need to achieve your sobriety and life goals.
Just as there is no set cost for rehab, there is no set time limit. The length of your rehab program will depend on your unique needs and issues as well as on factors like whether a mental illness co-occurs with the addiction and how engaged you are in your treatment program. A typical treatment plan can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
If you have a mental illness like anxiety or depression that occurs along with your addiction, you’ll require specialized treatment from Discovery Point Retreat. Our dual diagnosis program addresses the addiction at the same time as the mental illness to promote long-term recovery from both. Depending on your unique circumstances, a dual diagnosis may require more time to treat.
How involved you are in your own recovery journey also has an influence on how long treatment might last for you. The more fully you participate in therapy and practice the skills and strategies you’re learning, the more likely a shorter rehab stay will be.
To get a better idea of how long you might need to stay in treatment, contact Discovery Point Retreat at 855-306-8054. We can help you better understand what factors into the length of your stay in treatment.
One of the things you’ll learn in treatment is that having fun and spending time each day engaging in recreation and relaxation is fundamental for successful recovery. Boredom and isolation can lead to relapse, so having a list of activities you enjoy will go a long way toward success. Here are some sober things to do for enjoyment in and around Grapevine.
