Phoenix Drug Rehab Resources for Addiction Treatment
Contact Us to Learn More About Our Comprehensive Programs
Famed for scorching heat, lavish hotels, and sprawling golf courses, Phoenix, AZ can seem like an untroubled paradise. However, substance abuse and drug addiction cause problems for people of all ages in The Valley of the Sun. Arizona’s proximity to Mexico gives way to abundant sunshine and picturesque sunsets, but it also means the area is close to some major drug trafficking hubs, which amplifies ease of access to illicit drugs. Ports of entry into Arizona account for 7 out of 10 of the top 10 points of entry with the most drug busts in the U.S. As such, there is an influx of illicit substances flowing into the area each day.
Like the rest of the U.S., Arizona is facing an escalation of substance abuse and drug addiction, with a 53% increase in drug-related deaths between 2007 and 2019. In the Phoenix–Mesa–Glendale MSA, 16% of the population admitted to having used illicit substances in 2010, compared to 14.7% of the overall population.
In America, 4.9% of people used prescription pain relievers non-medically in 2010, whereas 6.1% of people in the Phoenix–Mesa–Glendale MSA illicitly used that type of medication. A startling 10% of the population of Arizona was diagnosed with a substance use disorder — 1% more than the country as a whole.
Addiction sneaks up on people who think they’re immune to it. It devastates the life of those addicted as well as their family, friends, and loved ones. The good news is that anyone can seek drug and alcohol treatment by sourcing quality rehab services in the greater Phoenix area.
It may sound like a cliché that the first step towards addiction recovery is accepting that there is a problem. But if you’re worried that you or a loved one might be suffering from a substance use disorder and are looking into treatment services, you are taking that vital step. Residents of Phoenix who are looking for addiction treatment — and desire to get away from the area to avoid temptations such as ease of access to drugs, alcohol, or negative influences — can find help at Holdfast Recovery in Prescott less than 2 hours away.
Partial Hospitalization Program
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a full-time program during which clients usually attend therapy and other sober activities for around 30 hours per week. For the best results, we recommend taking part in a treatment plan that lasts 90 days. Depending on your individual needs, you’ll attend PHP for 2 of the 3 months and then drop down to an intensive outpatient program for the last month.
During the PHP, you’ll attend sessions such as group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing for trauma. Exercise is also included since it’s an integral part of the recovery process because of the strong correlation between physical fitness and better mental health.
It’s integral that you live in a healthy environment while you attend treatment. Staying in a sober living facility while you’re in a Phoenix-area drug rehab (just north in Prescott) keeps you away from triggers and helps to curb temptation. It also gives you a structured routine to follow and learn to incorporate when you resume your daily life.
Intensive Outpatient Program
The last portion of your stay at our rehab center will consist of 15 hours per week in an intensive outpatient program (IOP). In some cases, you may decide with the clinical team that this level of treatment is appropriate for the entire duration of your stay at rehab. Besides continuing with the same types of therapy sessions and sober activities you would attend, the team will support you as you make your way back into education or employment.
Recovery is an ongoing process that requires maintenance, patience, and persistence. Once you’ve successfully completed a drug or alcohol rehab program, we recommend that you continue attending some form of long-term aftercare treatment. Rehab is an integral part of recovery, giving you tools, tricks, and insights that help you to stay sober — but it’s not a cure. Addiction is a chronic disease, and the best addiction treatment programs provide options for ongoing support and guidance.
Help for Veterans and First Responders
The heroes who serve our country, whether in the armed forces or by providing vital public services in times of everyday emergencies, face unique challenges that most people can’t begin to understand. At Holdfast Recovery in Prescott, we oversee a specialized treatment program that addresses the specific needs of these brave people. If you’re a first responder or veteran attending rehab in or around Phoenix, you’re guaranteed to be surrounded by a like-minded peer group who understands what you’ve been through.
Help for Christians
People who come from a Christian background often carry additional grief surrounding addiction. Reconnecting with your faith can be an incredibly positive experience while you’re in recovery. Jesus fought hard to teach his disciples the importance of forgiveness and preach the message that God is loving and never abandons His children. At our Christian rehab facility, you’ll attend Bible study and have access to clergy and religious education services.

There are various free-to-attend peer support groups in Phoenix and nearby areas that can help you along your recovery journey. Most people who maintain abstinence long term participate in outpatient services in some form for at least 2 years after finishing a rehab program, but often attend groups indefinitely.
AA is the original incarnation of the 12-step program, having helped millions of people suffering from substance use disorders since its inception in 1935. It gives people who have struggled with alcoholism a platform to share their stories and listen to what others have been through, picking up friends and highly valuable knowledge along the way.
NA is the sister of AA, founded in 1953; it helps people who are struggling with drug abuse to understand their condition. During meetings, you get the chance to learn from your peers while opening up and sharing your own insights and experiences.
Alcohol use disorder is a family disease. If you’ve come here because you’re seeking advice or help for someone close to you who is struggling with alcohol addiction, Al-Anon could be life-changing. This 12-step program helps the loved ones of problem drinkers understand and learn to cope with their emotions about, and encounters with, the disease.
Celebrate Recovery is a 12-step program based on Christian principles. The organization helps those dealing with substance abuse and other types of addiction, such as sexual, gambling, and food addictions, as well as survivors of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse.
