ABOUT CENTER POINT DAAC

Operated by the nonprofit agency Drug Abuse Alternatives Center (DAAC), Center Point provides a continuum of services for individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Depending on their needs, adult clients have access to non-medical detox services, residential treatment, outpatient care, and medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction. The center also runs specialized outpatient programs for teens and adolescents, pregnant and parenting women, and individuals with DUI convictions.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the facility’s website, Center Point treats addiction as a primary, chronic illness that, left untreated, can be fatal. Clients experiencing withdrawal symptoms may first undergo non-medical detox, a three- to five-day program that provides addiction education, relapse prevention education, and 24-hour support.

Once stabilized, clients may move on to residential treatment, which is offered in both co-ed and gender-specific settings. Clients enrolled in residential treatment receive comprehensive case management while participating in individual, group, and family therapy. Groups focus on topics including life skills, job preparedness, coping skills, and family dynamics. The facility offers specialized tracks for working clients and individuals who are enrolled in an opiate addiction program.

Outpatient programming also offers individual, group, and family therapy, but provides more flexibility than inpatient care. Outpatient treatment is offered five days a week, and bilingual/bicultural Spanish services are available.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The three loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com submitted universally positive reviews for the care their friends and family members received at Center Point. Both B.F. and A.D. offered strong recommendations and commented on the program’s efficacy and the cleanliness of the facility. “I know many women who have completed this program and enjoy lasting recovery and success…The housing is simple, clean and comfortable and a great place to learn how to live sober,” B.F. wrote in a representative review. M.T., a parent of a client, appreciated the facility’s treatment of formerly incarcerated individuals. “He spent more time in prison than out… Addicts need rehab, not punishment. Reps from Turning Point worked with him before he was released so he knew whom to contact & what to ask . He now has a job and has enrolled in school for the next semester,” M.T. wrote.

WHAT STAFF SAY

The two staff members polled by Best-rehabs.com provided mixed reviews. Susan praised the caring staff and supportive environment, but also cited a lack of adequate resources. “There is not enough staff training, staff support or incentives for staff. There needs to be more funding to purchase curriculum, computers for clients, exercise class for clients, things like that,” she wrote in her review.

David, a former addiction counselor at the facility, noted that he would not recommend the center to potential clients. While he highlighted the “strong staff unity,” he felt that programming had become inappropriately religious. “We had Buddhists, Muslims, Native Americans, who were not allowed to worship in their own ways and at time had to listen to christian theology. There was also an inability to allow for non 12 step treatment,” he told Best-rehabs.com. He also felt that the center’s “large population of criminal justice ordered clients,” often caused trouble for other clients.

FINANCING

There is currently no information provided on the facility’s website regarding its costs.”

  • I got sober here just over a year ago. I thought my life was over and couldn't imagine living sober or happy. I moved out a few months ago and my life feels like a dream. They just mailed me a letter they had me write myself a year ago. It was a letter of congratulations I wrote to myself for dreams I hoped to accomplish but didn't really think I would. I was blown away when I read it - everything I hoped would happen has happened in my life since I wrote that, after my experience at Turning Point. This is a beautiful, serene home environment for women in recovery and the staff genuinely care.

  • There are daily meetings, structure, family involvement, meetings held where others in recovery can come attend. The 12 step program is used and enables women to move forward and live meaningful, happy lives. I can't say enough wonderful remarks about my experiences here. And I know many women who have completed this program and enjoy lasting recovery and success. This is a beautiful residential program for women with a tight support system in place. The housing is simple, clean and comfortable and a great place to learn how to live sober.

  • It's hard to share the internet and live with restrictions of phone and freedom but it works. And I can see why the do this. Overall, it's a lovely recovery program. The staff are very sweet and genuine and encouraging. It's clean and there's a strong bond between women here.
    The intake department was more concerned with bodies in the beds than people who could possibly benefit from the program. Some clients were not appropriate for the level of staff training or expertise, also a large population of criminal justice ordered clients, they did not want to be there and were trouble makers. Staff changes brought in more religious centered treatment, it made for high tensions with white gang members who considered themselves Ohdinists. We had Buddhists, Muslims, Native Americans, who were not allowed to worship in their own ways and at time had to listen to christian theology. There was also an inability to allow for non 12 step treatment. However, there was strong staff unity.
    My son has fought with addiction for years. He spent more time in prison than out. California parole department is now funded to provide rehab programs like this that weren't available before. Addicts need rehab, not punishment. Reps from Turning Point worked with him before he was released so he knew whom to contact & what to ask . He now has a job and has enrolled in school for the next semester. The treatment was 24/7 and very intense. It gave my son help and hope for the future. It works. It saved my son's sanity.
    This is a good program, with 112 residents. We provide a safe, supportive environment for the residents. We have caring staff and we all want to help the residents be successful. We allow clients to be themselves so we can work on that with them. However, there is not enough staff training, staff support or incentives for staff. There needs to be more funding to purchase curriculum, computers for clients, exercise class for clients, things like that.
