Phase 1: The first 30 days
Discovery Place’s initial program, or “main campus” as we call it, is a 30-day residential retreat that sets the stage for lifelong sobriety. Resting quietly in an idyllic countryside, men get the highly needed separation from drugs and alcohol to start their new life of sobriety.
Most people begin treatment with a “detox plan” to safely detoxify from alcohol and other drugs. Then they are ready to move into a treatment program like ours. Our admissions team works closely with several detox facilities statewide to help facilitate a safe, “door to door” transition to sobriety.
Intro to the 12 Step Immersion
Discovery Place’s program of recovery is called 12 step immersion. Phase 1 of our program gives you an in-depth introduction to the 12 Steps. We teach you how to work the steps and apply the spiritual principles behind them in daily life. Working directly with their guides as well as with each other, guests will learn how to stay sober, live a useful and purposeful life, and be free to make healthy, responsible choices.
The disease of addiction never takes a day off. Guests learn how to identify the root causes and conditions of their addiction. They learn to understand the thought process that precedes a relapse, therefore avoiding another downward spiral into addiction. We also guide them towards healthy habits, sometimes as simple as making their bed every morning.
