Frequently Asked Questions

  • I may have a problem, but I can’t leave my life for 30 days.

    It’s true, the prospect of taking 30 days away from typical, daily life, can be daunting. However, alcoholism and addiction is a progressive illness – meaning, the symptoms and their consequences tend to grow in severity. Unfortunately, you can’t afford NOT to focus your undivided attention upon your recovery. The tools, fellowship, and internal shift found in our program will equip you for dealing with life in an entirely new way.

    This may surprise you, but when we are using and drinking, no matter what we think is true, we’re much more of a burden on our families than a source of support. Our programs, ranging from 30 days to one year, are designed to create long-term sobriety because reliability of character is what your loved ones need most. When you return home from your work with us, those seemingly overwhelming challenges from before, will no longer be impossible to move through.

  • Maybe your program is great, but I’m not sure it’s the fit for me.

    It’s true, our programs have produced long-term sobriety for 83% of participants. But you probably think what you have going on, or the details of your specific circumstance, are a recipe for failure. We felt that way, too. Every one of us. Our disease not only tells us we don’t have a disease, but that we’re also the only ones on earth dealing with what we’re dealing with. Trust us. We were there. We can help. You are not alone, and you don’t have to live as though you are, anymore.

  • My husband, son, father, brother or friend needs to go to Discovery Place, but he won’t.

    You may be surprised by how much influence you actually have! Most of us came to Discovery Place because of decisions made by our loved ones. This is actually a big part of what we do. We were the fathers and sons in the same position as your fathers and sons. Call us, and we will tell you about effective means of communication, emphasize expressions of love and concern, and answer any questions pertaining to your specific relationship.

    If your loved one accepts the prospect of Discovery Place, it’s important to move quickly. We’ll help you with all the next steps. And if your loved one isn’t interested in accepting help, it’s a good time to consider the choices you can make to protect yourself and to prevent any actions that make a life of addiction comfortable and possible.

  • How do I know which treatment option is best?

    It can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be fruitless! Our suggestion would be to back up your internet research with real, human phone calls. Ask for testimonials, or even to speak with alumni. Here are some questions you should be able to ask any facility’s Admissions team:

    • What do people who have been through your program say about it?
    • How do you determine the success of your program?
    • dWhat protections do you have in place to prevent unethical charges or billing practices?
    • What kind of long-term or after care programs do you provide?
    • Are you a for-profit or not-for-profit program?

    This is a big decision. The disease of addiction is real, and you’re witnessing the symptoms and consequences.  We want to talk through your situation and our solution, but most importantly, we want to help the suffering alcoholic / addict and his or her family. If Discovery Place is not the program for your loved one, that’s okay! We have made it our business to form relationships with upstanding, earnestly motivated, safe, and successful programs throughout the country. We will personally introduce you to the staff of those programs which best address your circumstances and timeline.


  • Discovery Place was the answer for my son. He did the 90 day and then the step down program and sober living. We give this organization 10 stars. They met my son where he was …emotionally, mentally, physically. They helped him put his life back on track. Discovery Place employees care about their guests. If your son, brother, nephew, grandson or husband needs excellent supportive care THIS is indeed the facility.

  • I have remained sober and it is because of DP. DP is the best place there is, hands down. I keep everyone there in my prayers, and I encourage everyone there to take what they are practicing and do it in their lives, after.

  • Over the past year, I’ve been putting into actin what Discovery Place taught me, and I have experienced a complete perspective change of the world, and the people in it. I get to be a man of service and love today, and for that I am grateful to Discovery Place.

  • Discovery Place means the world to me. They showed me the tools that I’ve tried to use everyday in my life to think less often of myself, and more frequently of others. I am learning to lend a hand when I am able and to have a honest and humble relationship with God and the people around me. Not only am I clean and sober, but also I am happy and fulfilled.

  • When I got to Discovery Place my whole life was in shambles, but I didn’t know it. I spent 6 months in their programs, participating in all three phases, and was met with kindness and love all along the way. It is unbelievable to me, where I am now relative to where I was when I arrived at DP.

    Lance Duke
  • I can never say enough good things about Discovery Place and the people who work there. Before checking in to DP, I was out of options and out of answers. Fortunately, Discovery Place has a solution. Taking suggestions from the staff at DP saved my life, and as a result, I’m now more content and hopeful about life. I’m grateful for Discovery Place showing me how to live a healthy life so that I can become a better man and help the next guy.”
