What We Treat at Our rehab program

Our North Scottsdale rehab location specializes in residential rehab services helping clients to recover from drug and alcohol abuse. We also provide outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, and residential services to customize your treatment plan based on your needs.

The North Scottsdale rehab facility treats a variety of substance use disorder cases, including:

  1. Alcohol
  2. Methamphetamine
  3. Benzodiazepine
  4. Cocaine
  5. Fentanyl
  6. Heroin
  7. Inhalants
  8. Marijuana
  9. Prescription drugs
  10. And more!

Alcohol dependency occurs when someone relies physically on alcohol, usually to self-medicate emotional and mental health issues. In other cases, alcoholism may manifest due to heavy reliance on alcohol for stress-related issues at work or home. 

Alcohol, though legal, is a formidable addiction to have. Over time, your brain, liver, kidney, heart, lungs, and nervous system can suffer because alcohol degrades these organs in the body. Early intervention for alcohol addiction is essential.

While methamphetamine is a stimulant that can elevate your mood. If you use meth, you will eventually experience meth psychosis, meth rage, and other disturbing side effects. If you are a person with bipolar, depression, anxiety, or schizophrenic disorders, you’re likely to experience these episodes more intensely.

Benzodiazepines, known as benzos, are commonly prescribed to treat short-term anxiety. Benzos are extremely addictive and difficult to detox from.

You may develop depression, anxiety, tremors, and other physical and mood disorders when trying to withdraw from a benzo dependency. Benzo detox should never be attempted without medical supervision, ever. The results of unassisted benzodiazepine detox can be fatal. 

Fentanyl and heroin are the top two most addictive drugs on this list of what we treat at Cornerstone Healing Center. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that mimics morphine. However, it is 50 to 100 times stronger in comparison to morphine. Too much fentanyl in the body can slow your breathing or stop it completely, ultimately leading to death.

How We Treat Drug and Alcohol Addiction at Our rehab Location

We treat patients at our residential facility via many methods. Our main avenues are EDMR, group therapy, family therapy, and individual therapy. We also provide nutritional support, exercise treatment, yoga, and meditation.


EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy. It’s a psychotherapy technique that combines group therapy and the 12-step program for effective results. Rather than verbal discussion, EMDR takes more of a physical approach to rehabilitation treatment.

Group Therapy

Group therapy brings clients together to go over important topics for all who struggle with addiction to learn. Presentations can range from videos on addiction, therapist presentations, and demonstrations of stress or anger coping skills.

Family Therapy

Transitioning from addiction or dependency to sobriety is a challenging task. You need a grounded support system to guide you through. Family therapy is essential for rebuilding bonds during the drug and alcohol rehab process so that you have people who care about you surrounding you during your recovery.

Your therapist will help you to work in time for family therapy during your residential rehab treatment. Family therapy sessions may last for 1-2 hours and involve you and your family member(s) discussing how you will maintain sobriety. Clients who include families in their treatment process are more likely to stay sober or clean long-term. 

Individual Therapy

One-on-one therapy with your assigned therapist is focused on you. Therapy sessions are immersive, confidential, and healing.

Your therapist will walk you through what is on your mind during your rehabilitation journey. You may have doubts about whether you will relapse or not. Perhaps you may be afraid to work things out with a family member because you believe they hate you because of the things you did during active addiction. No matter your needs, your therapist will talk you through everything and reassure you that if you keep doing the right thing, it will all work out in time. 

What to Expect in Treatment

Cornerstone does not provide a cookie-cutter experience for our clients. We focus on listening and fulfilling the needs of each client so that they heal on their terms with our support.

You can expect the following when receiving treatment at residential drug rehab:

  • Group therapy sessions daily.
  • Supportive therapy staff every step of the way.
  • A caring environment that is a judgment-free and stigma-free zone.
  • Treatment to enhance your physical health.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to increase your emotional intelligence.

Daily Group Therapy

Group therapy will help peers collaborate, learn about their dependency stories, and help each other through rehab pathways. During group therapy sessions, you will:

  • Have discussions at the initial group meeting about your dependency stories. 
  • Talk about a topic that the therapist chooses for the session:
    • What you are grateful for.
    • What do you want to work on in your rehab journey?
    • Your chosen procedure for reconnecting with family members.
    • Your relapse prevention plan. 
  • Independent activities:
    • Art 
    • Journaling
    • Meditation
    • Listening to soundscapes
  • Group activities:
    • Team building activities
    • Team games
    • Outside excursions

Physical Treatment

Physical therapy such as exercise in the fitness room and EMDR will help you get in tune with your body to connect more to your soul. Physical activity will reduce the nervousness and anxiety you may feel during rehabilitation while positively affecting your heart, brain, and mood.

Yoga, Tai Chi, and other modes of Chinese physical fitness combine slow and mindful movements with a spiritual connection to self. Each move has a special pose with varying difficulties that will take practice and dedication to perform correctly.

Emotional Treatment Via Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is crucial for increasing your emotional intelligence, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation. There are four steps of DBT are outlined below:

  1. The patient feels unable to control their emotions and feels intense distress.
  2. They may have better control of their emotions than in the first stage, but they do not discuss what they are feeling.
  3. Patients feel much more in control of their emotions while feeling emotionally healthy to communicate their feelings.
  4. Think of stage 4 of DBT as the self-actualization of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Reaching this stage of DBT therapy will help you intertwine your emotional intelligence with your inner spiritual connections.
