Treatment Insights

Decision Point takes a contemporary view of addiction as a chronic disease, not a choice. And like any chronic condition, addiction must be managed throughout one’s life. But this does not mean having to live life any less fully or with limitations. On the contrary, we believe that by learning to manage the condition of addiction and its associated disorders, people become better at learning to overcome the many other adversities they will encounter throughout their lives. We believe that treating addiction should be seen as a positive and healthful path of hope and growth.

Areas of Focus
Detoxification Services

The Decision Point Detoxification Center provides detoxification services in an Arizona state-licensed facility accredited by the Joint Commission. Medical detoxification is provided under the direction of our board-certified physicians and a team of specialized nurses who supervise our clients' safe withdrawal from a myriad of addictive substances including but not limited to; alcohol, benzodiazepines, heroin, methamphetamines, methadone and a variety of opiate medications, including fentanyl, carfentanil and prescription “pain pills”. We also specialize in some of the more popular emerging drugs of abuse: kratom, ketamine, piperazine, bath salts, synthetic cannabinoids, salvia divinorum and other psychoactive drugs. Our physicians have developed detox protocols based on peer-review research that emphasizes the use of today’s latest and most efficacious medications such as buprenorphine (Subutex/Suboxone), diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan), clonazepam (Klonopin), chlordiazepoxide (Librium) and phenobarbital. At the end of our detoxification protocol our medical staff can foster a smooth and comfortable transition to our 45-Day Residential Treatment Program for clients who choose to seek additional care. .

45-Day Residential Treatment Program

Treatment for drug and alcohol abuse in our 45-Day Inpatient Treatment Program involves a combination of behavioral and holistic therapies designed to achieve cessation from alcohol and drugs, an understanding of the causes of the disease of addiction, the ability to identify “triggers” for relapse, and the wherewithal to navigate one’s way back on track by seeking appropriate help should relapse occur. Should the client or the clinicians at Decision Point Center determine that deeper therapeutic work on underlying mental health issues, and/or educational and vocational counseling be of significant benefit to the client, he or she may elect to stay on for our 45-day Extended Residential Treatment Program. All 45-Day Residential Treatment clients live and receive treatment at Decision Point’s Prescott, Arizona treatment center.

Extended Treatment Program

In some cases, clients, their families, and the treatment team agree that a longer term stay may be warranted. This is extended period of treatment allows for further stabilization from addictive behaviors and in some cases, more in-depth treatment of mental health and trauma-related issues. However, the 45-Day Extended Treatment Program also provides additional therapies and services focused on each client's individual issues as well as the development of life skills such as money management, banking skills, resume writing and interviewing skills, and educational and vocational consulting, and more. We find that for many clients, addiction and substance use disorder are accompanied by a perceived inability to engage with life on life's own terms. We believe that this perception is due to a lack of emotional maturity and an inability to take responsibility for one’s self and future. The Extended Program gives each client an opportunity to develop these traits, in some cases, for the first time.

Alumni Testimonials
  • Robert (name changed) returned home on Monday almost unrecognizable to us. He is more focused, calm, able to articulate his thoughts... I could go on and on. We are so grateful that we found Decision Point - and you helping us get Robert there was crucial. We could not have done it on our own, nor Robert on his own. His therapist seemed to be able to really get into his head and he can't stop talking about how wonderful she was. Thanks again for everything.
    Heidi, mother of a former client
  • I was made to feel that the staff cared for me as a person, not just as another addict. Everyone was kind, compassionate, understanding and professional.
