Discovery Place Helps Those Affected by Substance Abuse

According to, “substance abuse, also known as drug abuse, is a patterned use of a substance (drug) in which the user consumes the substance in amounts or with methods neither approved nor supervised by medical professionals.”  Substance abuse affects people from diverse geographic, economic and cultural backgrounds.  In the majority of cases, the person afflicted with substance abuse problems causes emotional turmoil in family, friends and society.  These drug and alcohol related issues are becoming increasingly pronounced in the United States.

Fortunately, society’s perspective of people suffering from substance abuse issues is becoming more open and tolerant.  Today, virtually all medical professionals recognize substance abuse as a disease (or illness) due to years of meticulous data, research and studies.  With a push towards rehabilitation instead of incarceration, many people are actively seeking help for substance abuse.  Unfortunately, as noted by Hazelden’s William Cope Moyers, eight out of ten substance abusers will never find treatment for addiction.

Why Discovery Place for Substance Abuse Rehab?

Discovery Place offers highly effective, affordable substance abuse rehabilitation services for those seeking freedom from a life of slavery to substances.  Our recovery programs offer hope to the hopeless, and love for those who have often stopped loving themselves.

In partnership with the Baptist Healing Trust, we have tracked the outcomes our programs produce.  Our statistics are published openly on our website.  They continue to demonstrate Discovery Place as one of the premier recovery program providers in the nation for those suffering from substance abuse.  In fact, 61% of our alumni report sobriety one year after leaving Discovery Place.

Discovery Place is also a non-profit organization with no commissioned staff.  No member of our staff owns a recovery-related business, such as a sober-living (halfway) house.  You can be assured we are an organization operating with the right motives.  Our staff works at Discovery Place because they love recovery and helping guests find a path to happy, useful lives.  The generous donations of major non-profit organizations and friends of Discovery Place allow us to offer our 30-day residential program for a price many  families can afford.  We also have partial scholarships available for guests with demonstrated financial need.

Discovery Place is not a substance abuse rehab in the traditional sense of the term.  We are, instead, a recovery retreat that introduces guests to recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism as a way of life.  We operate under the original recovery principle of one alcoholic/drug addict helping another to stay sober.  Our recovery programs can help even the most desperate substance abusers.  We have experience in all areas  of drug  addiction and alcoholism.  With 16 years of incredible outcomes, let Discovery Place introduce your loved  one to  a life of recovery.
