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.
There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff, but survey data collected by Best-rehabs.com indicate that the center employs addiction counselors and administrative staff.

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