As an integral aspect of our recovery center’s holistic treatment approach, spirituality serves as a vital tool for individuals seeking to rediscover their true selves and find inner peace.

By fostering a deeper connection to one’s spiritual core, clients are better equipped to break free from the shackles of addiction and forge a new path towards lasting recovery.

Learning Critical Life-Skills

Addiction recovery involves more than just addressing the substance abuse issue itself. 

We believe in providing our clients with the essential tools to live confidently, responsibly, and succeed once they’ve graduated from our program. 

The inclusion of life skills education in addiction treatment at our Scottsdale facility is essential to long-term success. By equipping clients with these skills, we set them up for a more stable and independent life, reducing the chances of relapse. 

Life skills taught during treatment include financial management, effective communication, problem-solving, goal-setting, and time management. 

Even following the completion of treatment, our clients continue to enjoy access to our Recovery Coaching. This indispensable initiative offers personalized support, with each client being assigned a recovery coach to assist them in navigating essential life skills.


At Cornerstone Healing Center, the Common Ground family therapy program offers a unique approach to addiction treatment by incorporating the client’s family and loved ones into the recovery journey.

Recognizing that addiction impacts not just the individual but also those around them, Cornerstone believes in fostering strong, healthy relationships through communication and understanding.

At Common Ground, family members such as spouses, partners, parents, and children are encouraged to attend sessions that delve into the nature of addiction as a disease, while teaching participants how to establish boundaries and heal from past breaches of trust.

This comprehensive program creates a safe and supportive environment for all parties involved to get vulnerable, openly discuss their pain and experiences, and envision a hopeful future for their relationships.

By including the entire support network in the healing process, Cornerstone’s Common Ground program strives to build a lasting foundation for recovery and success. Common ground takes place at our rehab in Scottsdale and at the rehab center in Phoenix.

Arizona Drug Use Continues to Rise

Report findings show that 7.5% of Arizona adults used drugs in the past year. Arizona has seen an increase in fentanyl, cocaine, meth, and heroin use.

The increase in drug use is due to many factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the availability of drugs, socioeconomic factors, and changes in public attitude. Whatever the cause, it is clear that drug use is a growing problem in Arizona. We provide addiction treatment services to those all over the state of Arizona.
