At its very core, Discovery Place exists to guide men from the depths of addiction to the joy of recovery.

Our Mission

Discovery Place is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing affordable drug and alcohol addiction recovery programs for men. Our experienced staff introduces each guest and his family to the principles of the 12 step recovery program in a beautiful countryside setting. We believe these principles-honesty, perseverence, discipline, tolerance and love-are the foundation for a sober, happy, useful and whole life.

Our Vision

It is our vision that each guest completes his stay at Discovery Place with a clear understanding of the disease of alcoholism and drug addiction, and more importantly, that he will discover how to recover through the practice of the 12 step principles as a way of daily living, one day at a time.  We believe these principles, when actively applied on a daily basis, contain the ability to alleviate the desire to drink and abuse drugs.

Our Guiding Principles

• Discovery Place will use literature approved by the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous for the 12 step approach.
• Discovery Place is a recovery retreat, and as such, does not endorse nor oppose any particular religion or denomination.
• Discovery Place will endeavor to create an environment that encourages and promotes physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. 
• Discovery Place is committed to insuring these services are accessible, cost-effective and of the highest quality.
