Substance Abuse Treatment Arizona

Substance abuse is believed to be a disease of the brain. People often indulge in drug use as a part of prescription medicine which eventually progresses to extreme cravings for the drug and results in addiction. Once addicted, they undergo a lot of emotional, physical, economic and social complications. Therefore, it is essential to treat the addiction before the situation goes out of hand. Substance abuse treatment may vary depending on the type of drugs used, patient's needs, severity of the condition and prior treatment methods (if any).

Drug abuse is treated by combining medications and therapies. Medications help to reinstate the brain function and cope with the withdrawal symptoms, whereas treatments assist in developing self-assurance, awareness, mental strength and aid the patient to resume a healthy lifestyle. It is, for this reason, we have built and designed the Arizona Addiction Recovery Center to become a place where more effective substance abuse treatment in Arizona would be affordable.

The recommended types of substance abuse treatment methods are as follows.


Detoxification is a procedure that helps the addicts to stop taking drugs as safely and quickly as possible. Detoxification is the first step toward abstinence as it involves a gradual reduction in the number of medications administered to the patient. This implies that the drug is discontinued safely, under medical supervision. It is a form of substance abuse treatment that concentrates on providing supportive care while the drug abuser undergoes the withdrawal process. Frequently, medicines are also administered to prevent potentially lethal withdrawal complications and what’s more fascinating is our substance abuse treatment in Arizona has a detoxification center. The entire detoxification process can take from two to fourteen days, based upon the intensity of drug abuse, the dosage that was taken and the extent of time it was abused.

Behavioral Therapies

Many people experience psychological strain related to work, illness or family problems hence, they often look upon drugs as a coping device, which offers a brief escape from daily problems. Behavioral therapy sessions, whether in private or social settings, teach addicts various methods to manage pressure and stress without turning to drugs. Some of the typical tactics involved in this therapy include approaches to resist cravings, motivation to take part in treatments and techniques to prevent relapse. Behavioral therapies can also help to enhance relationships, communication and develop coping skills.

Individual Counseling and Family Therapy

Counseling is one of the essential recovery techniques included in our substance abuse treatment plan in Arizona. Individual counseling is intended to recognize the feelings that induce an addict to use drugs. As the patient realizes the triggers to his addiction, his physician may include family therapy as a part of the treatment plan. Family therapy is effectual in offering significant support to the patient as he strives to conquer his addiction. Additionally, family support can be vital as it can help to prevent relapse.

Support Groups

Most patients obtain immense support from the support groups as they get to connect with others who share the same experience. This helps to create a broad network of support when they find it difficult to refrain from taking a drug. The support groups are usually recommended to participate in the Twelve Step Programs like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous which are known to be highly beneficial substance abuse treatment programs.

Holistic Therapy

Holistic therapies are combined to educate recovering addicts how to evaluate their emotions and cope with the associated stress. Thoughts can often cause stressful physical sensations, and holistic treatments help in identifying negative thoughts that cause anxiety, depression which leads to addictive behavior. These therapies include nutritional therapy, exercise, meditation, spiritual counseling, creative arts therapy, animal therapy, acupuncture, and massage.

Overall, it can be hard to see a loved one turn drug addict. So, if you are concerned about drug abuse by a dear one, then you can make conscious attempt to get him out of the clutch of drug addiction by seeking our professional guidance on substance abuse treatment in Arizona as soon as you can. Quick medical support and effective substance abuse treatment method can go a long way in tackling the addiction successfully.

I’m 32 years old and had been to at least 5 or 6 drug rehabs in the past 10 years or so. After having been here for almost 90 days, I can sincerely say that I’ve never experienced such an awesome way to get sober and learn how to live and enjoy life without the use of drugs. Thank you everyone!

My son Jordan was here for 6 weeks and the changes I’ve noticed in him are astounding. Even beyond the drug abuse, he has for the first time in his life really taken on the responsibilities a man in his 20’s should. He’s now back in college and our family is as wonderful as ever…thank you to Chris and Alex, you guys are wonderful!!!

A coaching client of mine was really struggling with heroin addiction and unfortunately became hooked beyond belief. I investigated a number of treatment facilities throughout Arizona and determined this was likely the best option given his age and addiction. He went through detox and residential treatment here for 3 months and today I must that I have been truly impressed every step of the way. I definitely recommend AARC…
