Prescott’s Decision Point Acquires Carleton Treatment Center

Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire
10/13/2014 -ATIN – For Wade L’Heureux it was just a matter of getting away from it all. As an international businessman based out of Vienna, with stops in places like Yokohama, Japan, urban landscapes on a huge scale had come to dominate his life and he just wanted to go camping, he told Treatment Magazine . But Prescott, AZ-based Decision Point Center CEO Michael McGill saw a different near term future for L’Heureux. In his capacity as CEO and co-founder of Desert Cove of Scottsdale, McGill introduced L’Heureux to some Desert Cove clinical talent after giving L’Heureux a bunch of money to buy camping equipment. The long and the short of it turned out to be that L’Heureux and the Decision Cove therapist, as well as McGill, led a camping trip for Desert Cove clientele, McGill said.  And Wade L’Heureux, seeing a dangerous new international travel environment grow up around him that made his international business career seem a lot riskier, is now the highly qualified new outreach chief at Decision Point, where McGill is just returning in the senior role and which just mid-month last bought another Prescott treatment operation called Carleton Recovery Center.

New 100+ Bed Center

With the new purchase, Decision Point, which has been open for more than a dozen years in Prescott, will grow to 105 beds from just 45 previously. Over the past two decades, Prescott has grown into a treatment “hub” where centers tend to be more affordable than the ones like Sierra Tuscon, The Meadows and Cottonwood which exist on large high desert properties and have made Arizona world famous as a place where ultra high-end addictions and mental health services are available. CEO Michael McGill said in a prepared statement that Decision Point would continue its mission of “cognitively clarifying clients concerns” while also introducing them to 12-Step philosophies. “With this acquisition, Decision Point Center will become the largest residential treatment center in Prescott … including 8 beds for detox services.”

Carleton Says it’s Win-Win

“Decision Point Center’s acquisition of Carleton is a win-win for our clients, present and future, as well as our employees.  Our culture is one of collegiality and sharing where each clinician knows they not only have my support but the support of every member of the team.”  states Gary Hees, Decision Point Center’s Clinical Director. “The addition of the years of expertise and experience of the Carleton team will greatly enhance our ability to effectively address the developmental and spiritual malady of addiction.”
