  • Decision Point Center
    They helped me to rebuild my self-esteem and confidence to become a man of integrity.
    As an addict of what many call the “hopeless variety,” I came to Decision Point Center in 2011 with a very grim outlook on life. My life experiences up to that point had led me to believe that sobriety, happiness, and peace of mind were simply unobtainable. Decision Point did an amazing job at meeting me where I was at without placing expectations on me of where I “should” be on the road to recovery. Their team of clinicians patiently guided me through the mess of early sobriety and provided me with clarity on the choices that had led me to that state of hopelessness and despair. They helped me to rebuild my self-esteem and confidence to become a man of integrity. Without Decision Point’s guidance it would be very difficult for me to navigate successfully through this crazy maze of life.

    Dr. Pieri has been essential to David's re-entry into reality.
    I am happy to be able to write this brief letter to applaud every single interaction I have had with Decision Point, from the Friday night in early November through this very day. You all have made me a very happy old Mother. Soon to see her very much healthier and steadier first child. David is my first child. Maybe not the best child, but a charming, civil, well behaved, hard-working (through the haze), intelligent man. I moved to AZ permanently in 2014, and became aware of how sick David might be. We all worried, his brother Stephen sent $5400 to help in at a sober house, but that did not work. It is true that we worried, but not enough, that David was in dire trouble. We were gentle and positive with and around him, which was not often because he always ducked away. We feared he would run away from us somewhere and never get well. He surrendered to me and his brother, Jonathan, on a Thursday night, and we were at Decision Point the next afternoon at 5pm. I write to anyone who needs testimony about Decision Point and its very hard working and dedicated staff. The jobs you are engaged in are so difficult, so emotionally draining, so long, and so important. Dr. Pieri has been essential to David's re-entry into reality. He might go to see her after he comes back to Phoenix. Lindy has been the best thing that ever happened, after me, maybe. And Kevin has kept me in the loop throughout, and it was very helpful and meaningful. I grew to look forward to reports (not so good in the beginning). If you ever need someone to speak on behalf of this fine success and care, please count on David Cowles, and/or me to help your promotions in any way we are able to speak to the decent and positive work everyone has done. We are eternally grateful, and never want to see you again ??????.

    The therapists were persistent and motivating in my progress.
    Before my stay at Decision Point Center, I had quite a few problems. While I thought my only problem was drugs and alcohol, I learned this was only a symptom of everything else underneath. The treatment team at Decision Point Center helped dig into that concealed part of myself that would eventually lead to rigorous work. The therapists were persistent and motivating in my progress. The recovery process was emotional, heavy, and even discouraging at times, but that was the work that Decision Point Center provided that allowed me to finally see a brighter “something” within me. That “something” has now developed into a variety of tools and methods I now have for enjoying life. Through personalized therapy, “EMDR”, and group support systems; Decision Point Center gave me the hope I needed to begin my still ongoing journey in recovery. As I continue my recovery today, I find myself doing things I previously thought were wishful thinking. I recently had an article I produced, published into an international magazine. As well as another article to be published in the coming months! But beyond that, I have found a new way of going about my everyday life. A life that is no longer engulfed in anxiety and fear, but optimism and motivation to continue to improve!

    Today I live a full life that I never thought I was capable of.
    When I learned, I was going to decision point I was so excited. I was sitting in the scariest detox I had ever been to in Denver Colorado and up until that point I had no idea where I was going to go and what I was going to do. For the first time, ever my friends and family had completely given up on me. No one was answering my calls no one wanted anything to do with me anymore. Arizona sounded far from home but I didn't care. When I got there, I was so broken down and scared I thought I was the only person who had ever felt this way. Upon my arrival, I was taken in immediately by the support staff until Monday when I met with my therapist and the rest of the clinical team. It was so refreshing to be around people who understood exactly what I had been going through without any judgement. Decision point not only comforted me and explained to me why I had done the things I had, they also helped me to recognize my part in my mistakes and the damage I had caused in the lives of the people I love. They were there for me when I reached out to those people weather it was well received or not. When My disease did catch up to me again and I forgot all the progress I had made, decision point showed up at my door and helped me remember why I didn't want that life. They truly care and did everything they could to get me back into a safe environment until I could see clearly again. When my family and friends had given up on me again and I had given up on myself decision point didn't and I'm SO grateful. The most amazing part of decision point and what set it apart from all the other treatment centers was the amazing clinical team and their ability to teach me how to live. I thought that the rules that they put in place were silly when I first got there but I realize now that's because I had absolutely no idea how to live my life. I didn't know what my values where I didn't know it was important to wake up and get out of bed in the morning because before I got there I didn't have any reason to. Today I live a full life that I never thought I was capable of. I go to work every day I go to meetings I am reliable and I help other people and I know that I will always have the support of decision point as well as the tools they gave me to get to where I am today. I am so so grateful to that place and all they taught me the life I had is not one I will ever go back to.

    Life is a rollercoaster to enjoy not the insanity of a merry go round and I am so grateful for that!
    When I arrived at decision point in January of 2015 I was broken ashamed and wanted to die. I came to treatment only for a place to sleep and to appease my family; for there was no way I was actually going to get sober and achieve any peace or happiness. I was hopeless and queen of playing the victim. It took me two months to surrender and accept someone else's way and/or suggestion; however, once I did my treatment changed dramatically. I gained friendships and life lessons I still keep with me. I learned what accountability and integrity meant and began to practice discipline and effective communication skills. I was introduced to the AA program here in Prescott which changed my life and am eternally grateful for. My therapists and techs supported me in having a program to take with me when I completed. In addition in the day to day therapy I had the opportunity to have my family come and do a 3 day session which was something that dramatically improved our relationships. I was able to complete Decision Point at 6 months with confidence and strength and will to live which I did not have before and the want to remain in Prescott and continue to work on myself and grow. I moved on to a sober living in town for another 7 months and worked at various places in town. I now am a residential tech at Decision Point and have just over two years sober. I am self-supporting and live on my own here in Prescott and continue to pass on what was so freely passed on to me with my sponsees. Most important I have my family back in my life and my freedom and happiness. Life isn't perfect but I now have the tools to work through the rough times. Life is a rollercoaster to enjoy not the insanity of a merry go round and I am so grateful for that!

    Decision point gave me the key to unlock a lifetime of happiness.
    I was dead inside, vile, crushed and exhausted. For many years I lived the painful life of an alcoholic and drug addicted person. I had no concept of a resolution because all I knew was a lifestyle of manipulation and survival. My cognizance and emotions had been paralyzed by my addiction; the sickness was consuming me from the inside out. My life changed the day I walked into Decision Point. I was greeted with a unique approach that identified my specific underlying issues. For the first time in a long time, I was treated like a person without judgement, shame, or guilt. Decision point gave me the key to unlock a lifetime of happiness. I no longer look in the mirror and shutter at the site of myself. The miracles I’ve experienced are due to the willingness to change and the exceptional staff and program that Decision Point provided me with.

    If it had not been for decision point and the staff members within I would not be here to write this.
    When I chose to check myself into decision point I was very unsure on what to expect. The first staff member I met immediately began to relate to my situation and began sharing his experience with recovery and treatment. This instantly gave me a sense of belonging and acceptance at decision point. I feel as though that was the vibe I got from all the staff, they constantly were helping me put my life back together while they gave me situations that were relatable to me which allowed me to be more understanding. There was a great mix of intense heartfelt therapy and having fun. Going on hikes and getting outside to play sports with all the other clients was one of my favorite aspects about decision point. Sports and recreation allowed for a small break from more serious things. On a more serious note we were expected to keep our rooms and apartments cleaned and everything in order. This, along with helping others to follow the rules has really helped me out in life since leaving decision point. Once my counselor decided that I was ready to move forward, I was able to begin looking for a job. Staff members helped guide me with my resume, what to wear, how to present myself, all of these things in which I hadn’t had much experience with prior to coming to decision point. Another incredibly helpful aspect was when we were required to put together a plan of action when for when we left decision point. This gave us something to hold ourselves accountable with. All of the staff members at decision point were beyond helpful and I honestly owe them so much thanks for saving my life. I believe it is very rare these days for people to genuinely care about someone else wanting nothing in return, but that’s is how the staff was at decision point. To this day I still use the advice and the tools they gave me to help keep my life in order. If it had not been for decision point and the staff members within I would not be here to write this

    I am eternally grateful for having been a client at a facility that never gave up on me, and for being employed at the same facility so that I can help others on their journey through the recovery process.
    On February 1st, 2012 I admitted to Decision Point. I was not serious about my recovery, extremely unwilling to accept suggestion or advice, and completely terrified of the idea of having to be open and honest with other people about how I felt and what my life had become because of my addiction. I was used to being tossed to the side in other treatment centers because of my “attitude” and my overt defiance. The first time I attended Decision Point I was a client for about 6 months and I did the bare minimum asked of me in order to remain a client (as I had nowhere else to go) but they never once gave up on me. It was at the 6 month point where I decided that I was ready to leave treatment, and essentially gave up on myself. I ended up leaving decision point and got high one last time. The last time I used heroin I came to the realization that it no longer worked for me. It didn’t take the pain away, it didn’t allow me to escape my reality, and it didn’t get me any closer to being someone who was worth the amazing life I now have today. I came back through the doors of Decision Point with my tail between my legs and finally accepted the help that they were always willing to give me. I embraced all of the therapies they had to offer and opened myself up to a new healthier way of living. After Decision Point I completed a sober living program and completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. As of now I am a year away from having a Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling, and am employed at Decision Point as a Primary Counselor. I am eternally grateful for having been a client at a facility that never gave up on me, and for being employed at the same facility so that I can help others on their journey through the recovery process.
