Discovery Point Retreat Review

Lying just beyond the southern suburbs of Dallas, Discovery Point Retreat is an upscale residential facility that treats substance abuse, addiction and co-occurring disorders. Discovery Point offers a full continuum of care that includes a medical detox, residential programming, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), outpatient services and aftercare. The facility seeks to take clients through a “total metamorphosis” by treating the whole person rather than merely fixing symptoms. To this end, it utilizes a multi-theoretical approach to care that employs several therapeutic methods including evidence-based practices, the 12-step recovery model and recreational therapies. Medication management is also available for clients with co-occurring disorders.

Accommodations and Food

Situated in a beautiful ranch in the small town of Waxahachie, Texas, a 30 minute drive from Dallas, Discovery Point offers a serene and stress-free refuge from the hustle and bustle of big city life. The peaceful atmosphere is ideal for recovery. Residents enjoy plenty of amenities including an outdoor pool, an on-site exercise facility, basketball court, a fishing pond, horseback riding, swimming and hiking trails. The two-story house has 20 beds and is equipped with a spacious floor plan, several common areas and therapy rooms. Bedrooms are semi-private with two queen-sized beds, nice furnishings and TVs.  

Clients enjoy an open kitchen and an on-site chef that prepares healthy and delicious meals. Residents with dietary preferences or restrictions can be accomodated.

Treatment and Staff

Before entering residential treatment, clients undergo a comprehensive assessment that helps the Discovery Point team create the most effective personalized treatment strategy tailored to the specific needs and goals of the individual client. In many cases, residents immediately enter the detox process. Discovery Point provides a safe and comfortable medical detox that lasts between five and seven days. If needed, the treatment team utilizes non-addictive medication to curb any withdrawal effects and around-the-clock supervision. Upon completion of detox, clients typically transfer straight into the residential program.

Discovery Point seeks to treat the “whole client” with individualized programming that integrates an array of methods like evidence-based CBT, individual and group counseling and 12-step recovery meetings as well as plenty of recreational therapies. 

The multi-disciplinary Discovery Point team is comprised of licensed counselors, psychiatrists, addiction specialists and a nursing team. Medication management is available for clients in need of dual diagnosis support.


Residents frequently enjoy weekend getaways to concerts and sporting events in nearby Dallas.

Continued support is an integral component to the success of a sustainable, long-term recovery. To this end, the facility offers a strong aftercare program that includes relapse prevention and, if necessary, sober living arrangements.

In Summary

Discovery Point Retreat offers medical detox and comprehensive residential programming as well as a PHP and IOP in an upscale setting. Situated in a ranch and surrounded by a beautiful landscape, clients learn to enjoy life without the use of substances. The facility offers individualized treatment through the integration of the 12-step method, CBT and an array of holistic recreational therapies. For clients seeking a world-class home and comprehensive programming, Discovery Point is an excellent option.
