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.

Facility Highlights

  • Treatment for Adults 18+

Specialization

  • 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.

ABOUT DECISION POINT CENTER

Set in the Bradshaw Mountains of central Arizona, Decision Point Center provides dual diagnosis treatment for individuals struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental illness or trauma. The Prescott residential rehab center is one of only 5.9 percent of Arizona treatment facilities to provide non-hospital residential detox services. These are followed by an extended assessment program, evidence-based psychotherapy, and outdoor recreational therapies. Having opened in 2002, the facility significantly redesigned its programming in 2016, placing high priority on serving clients in a shame-free environment that supports whole-person recovery.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The standard 45-day residential program at Decision Point Center begins with a 14-day comprehensive assessment process, according to the facility’s website. Clients in need of immediate physical care can be admitted to the detox program for access to 24/7 medical support during withdrawal from substances including heroin, cocaine, alcohol, and benzodiazepines. Once a client is stabilized, they are typically transitioned into continued residential treatment.

Programming is designed to address each client’s nutritional, medical, psychiatric, psychological, relational, and vocational wellness. In keeping with a therapeutic community recovery model, Decision Point’s introduces recovery support groups involving traditional and newer 12-step principles, such as Alcoholic Anonymous and Celebrate Recovery, and non-12-step approaches, such as SMART Recovery.

Trauma-oriented therapy at Decision Point primarily utilizes eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), while cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) serves as a core modality. Also practiced are motivational interviewing and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Outdoor recreational therapy is a distinctive part of the Decision Point program, too. The center’s location supports hiking, rock-climbing, backpacking, and equine therapy. Alternative activities for residents with physical limitations are provided. For clients participating in long-term programs, up to 90 days, career counseling and financial education are included, designed to address failure-to-launch challenges. Family therapy is encouraged. Case managers assist clients during treatment with legal obligations and family meetings and provide one year of follow-up.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team at Decision Point Center includes a certified EMDR therapist, recreational therapists, nursing staff, and master’s-level counselors. Some staff members are in personal recovery. The center is one of the just 20 percent of facilities nationwide to hold Joint Commission credentials.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Residents at Decision Point Centers live in comfortable, apartment-style spaces in separate women’s and men’s buildings. Website photographs feature multiple outside meeting spaces, shared bedrooms, media rooms, a computer room, and a game room with a pool table.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

To date, of the 51 alumni reviews received by Rehabs.com for Decision Point Center, 76 percent were strongly favorable and 12 reviews were critical. All feedback was collected within three years of this writing; however, former clients didn’t always indicate whether their treatment experience was before or after the facility’s major programming changes.

Alumni frequently reported the life-saving effects of their treatment, citing ongoing sobriety and application of tools learned. They also complimented staff and the value of outdoor therapy at Decision Point. Eight alumni polled more extensively by Rehabs.com gave positive-leaning, but mixed opinions. The two highest average ratings were for metrics evaluating elements the facility’s website emphasized, while one significant area received a few complaints.

Note that the center’s CEO addressed these concerns in response to critical reviews, citing significant changes in philosophy and staffing.

Elsewhere, feedback for Decision Point Center trended more solidly positive. On Google, 32 individuals contributed to an average rating of 4.3 out of five stars, and several reviews echoed praise for supportive staff.[1]

Multiple reviewers appreciated the EMDR therapy especially. A few critical reviews duplicated ones on Rehabs.com. The center’s official Facebook page, which its staff may monitor, followed similar trends, with an average of 4.4 out of five stars based on the opinion of 45 people.[2] Yelp reviews fell more in line with Rehabs.com reviews, split two-to-one, positive-to-critical.[3] [4]

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

To date, feedback for the facility from 18 loved ones polled by Rehabs.com was also mixed. Opinions from nine individuals polled more extensively by Rehabs.com agreed with alumni on one area of strength, while offering much lower ratings for other priority areas.

Cleanliness and Upkeep: 4.1/5
Dual Diagnosis Treatment: 2.8/5
Holistic Offerings: 2.4/5

Family members were most satisfied with the staff, though were more critical of the facility's counseling options and level of family participation.

Staff Experience and Training: 4.1/5
Family Participation: 2.8/5
Counseling Options: 2.5/8

Of about half-a-dozen Google reviews by loved ones, all but one were positive, most commonly reporting extra efforts the staff made to make their family members comfortable.

WHAT STAFF SAY

All nine employees of Decision Point Center polled to date by Rehabs.com offered highly positive feedback. Many emphasized significant changes and improvements, including reviving outdoor and holistic activities, which had not been prioritized prior to 2016. Four Indeed reviews also tended to focus on management and programming changes as positive aspects of the facility.[5]

FINANCING

The Decision Point Center website lists a few insurance plans that are accepted in-network at the time of this writing, including TRICARE, Humana, and Viant.

I went to Decision Point Center almost 9 years ago. I had gone to multiple 30 day facilities that didn’t work for me. The long term care and attention to why I used is what worked for me. I just celebrated 8 years sober

Do NOT consider this treatment center. Everyone working here is ex convicts with tattoos and bad attitudes. They are extremely unprofessional. The operational systems are a disaster and living routine is the same as if they just opened, let alone aN operating facility with years of so called experiance.. Give yourself a chance elsewhere. I attended and left after 2 weeks and went to another place in Tucson that was simply amazing.
