Overcome Drug Addiction at Decision Point Center

While our treatment plans vary based on the underlying issues that fuel the substance abuse issues, we address a wide range of drug addictions with our proven programs.
At Decision Point Center, you are our priority. We support a holistic recovery process and all aspects of your wellbeing. Addiction is a chronic illness and managing it can be a lifelong battle. There is no shame in asking for help.
Drug Addiction is an Epidemic in Arizona
Drug rehab centers in Arizona are fairly common due to the high number of individuals struggling with substance abuse in the state. According to 2018 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Arizona has one of the highest drug overdose death rates in the United States at roughly 23.8 deaths per 100,000 people. This has been steadily increasing over the past decade as more and more illicit drugs are smuggled over the southern border.
Drug addiction is a deadly disease, but it is one that can be overcome with the right treatment. In fact, studies have shown that more than half of all individuals who seek and stay engaged in drug addiction treatment for more than one year achieve lasting sobriety. At Decision Point Center, we have seen these success stories and have played a part in making them happen since 2004.
Do not become another statistic - get in touch with us today to get the compassionate help you need.
Types of Drug Addictions We Address
Drug addiction in any form can quickly cause your life to spiral out of control. Addiction can consume your thoughts, govern your actions, and take priority above all other aspects of your life, including your family, friends, your job, or the hobbies you once loved. Any substance can become addictive, but some drugs have a higher potential for abuse than others.

- Benzodiazepine addiction
- Xanax and Ambien addiction
- Cocaine addiction

- Opiate addiction
- Heroin addiction
- Meth addiction
- Marijuana addiction

If you struggle with any of the substances above, residential rehabilitation may be a good start. While it can be easy to blame yourself your addiction, it is important to remember that addiction is a disease, and like any disease, you need to seek treatment to overcome it.

Drug Abuse vs. Addiction
While often used interchangably, "drug abuse" and "drug addiction" have different connotations and meanings. Understanding the difference between these terms can be helpful when understanding the complex topic of addiction.
- Drug abuse refers to a person using a particular substance without being addicted to them. An example of this would be a person using cocaine for the first time, or a person continuing to take a prescription opioid pain medication long after it is medically necessary. Regular drug abuse can lead to certain patterns of behavior that result in addiction.
- Drug addiction is defined by the National Institute on Drug Abuse as a "chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite adverse consequences." Drug addiction is considered a brain disorder, as it involves physical changes to the reward, stress, and self-control areas of the brain.
Breaking the Stigma of Drug Addiction
There is often a very strong, negative stigma attached to individuals who struggle with drug addiction. Many people look down on addicted individuals as being burnouts, "lowlives," immoral, or that they deserve their struggles as a result of poor choices. The truth is that drug addiction does not discriminate. While a person's relationship with addictive drugs may begin with a choice, they cannot control when they become addicted. We understand this and offer our services without judgment or prejudice to all that seek help.
Signs & Symptoms of Drug Addiction
Not all drug addictions are easy to identify, both for the person addicted and the people around them. Some drug addicted people become very good at hiding their addiction from their loved ones and may even be in denial of the scale of their problem. While the signs and symptoms of drug addiction will vary depending on the type of drug or drugs involved, some warning signs are common.
Signs that a person may be struggling with drug addiction include:
- Changes in appearance or hygiene
- Uncharacteristically secretive or reclusive behavior
- Issues at school or at work
- Low energy or lack of motivation
- Personality changes
- Sudden and unexplained money troubles
