Adult Intensive Outpatient - Alcohol and other Drug Addiction


24-Hour Helpline
(602) 254-HELP (4357) or
(800) 254-4357 within Arizona

Our licensed therapists have experience in recovery programs. The primary goal is to "get into the solution" which includes becoming fully functional in AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), NA (Narcotics Anonymous), and CA (Cocaine Anonymous).

Our group therapy provides education on addiction as a disease; craving management skills, relapse prevention, and 12-step education. In this program, we teach the skills and provide the tools necessary for lifelong recovery. Random urine drug screens and breathalyzers are also provided.

Family Involvement
Included in the cost of the program is our separate, adult family group, meeting weekly with our family therapist. Alcoholism and other drug addiction are family illnesses. Families can and do heal together with proper guidance. Unrealistic expectations of each other can be a challenge in recovery. Sometimes basic communication skills and having an accurate picture of what recovery entails can ease the most troubled situations. We also encourage family members to attend scheduled group sessions with their loved one.

Relapse Prevention
Upon graduation from IOP, we provide, at no charge, continuing support in our Relapse Prevention Group that meets weekly. 

Program Costs
Our IOP program is covered by most insurance plans. Please contact your carrier, or we will be happy to assist you with this.
