Scottsdale Alcohol and Drug Rehab Programs

Highly-Rated Addiction Treatment Programs in Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ


Why Choose Cornerstone Rehabilitation Programs?

There are many Arizona addiction rehab programs to choose from, but what sets our program apart is its core focus on three fundamental elements: the power of human connection, the application of evidence-based substance abuse treatments, and the commitment to fostering long-term relationships with our clients.

We understand that overcoming addictions and dual-diagnosis conditions requires more than just not using or drinking. The underlying causes of the substance abuse, such as trauma, must be addressed to pave the way for successful sobriety and recovery.

However, at the same time, there must be a safe and nurturing environment to dig into and begin healing from the past. Cornerstone provides a rehabilitation environment where healing and change can occur at a core level.

More importantly, we don’t only focus on clients. We focus on the critical support system surrounding our clients, such as their loved ones, friends, and family.

Family involvement is an integral part of the recovery process. Studies have shown that family involvement in substance abuse rehabilitation can drastically increase the chances of long-term success in recovery1.

  • What is the main focus of your programs?

    At Cornerstone Healing Center, the spotlight isn't just on treating addiction; it's about treating you, the whole person. We understand that substance misuse often has deeper roots, perhaps in trauma or other underlying issues. We aim to dig deep, get to the core of your addiction, and help you heal from the inside out. Our rehabilitation programs' primary focus is you—your healing, your family, and your long-term success. We arm you with the tools and community you need to live a fulfilling life free from chemical dependencies.

  • What types of substance abuse issues does your program treat?

    Our programs are designed to treat all forms of substance abuse, from alcohol and opioids to prescription drugs. For a comprehensive list visit addictions we treat. If you're dealing with behavioral health issues like depression or anxiety, our residential treatment program can help with that, too. Cornerstone offers comprehensive care that addresses your substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions. The goal is to help you live a fulfilling, sober life.

  • Do you offer residential and outpatient programs?

    Yes, we offer a range of substance use disorder treatment options to fit your unique needs and lifestyle. Whether you require round-the-clock care or the flexibility to balance treatment with other responsibilities, we’ve got you covered. For those seeking an immersive residential experience, our residential program provides a structured environment where you can focus solely on your recovery. On the flip side, if you're looking for treatment that allows you to remain engaged with work, school, or family, their outpatient options might be just what you need.

  • How long are your rehabilitation programs?

    The duration of rehabilitation typically ranges from 30 to 90 days. However, it's essential to understand that recovery is a personal journey, and what works for one person might be different for another. While some individuals might benefit from a month-long program, others may require a more extended stay to address their needs thoroughly. We always strive to strike a balance. We understand the realities of medical necessity, financial constraints, and insurance considerations. Our team works diligently to create a plan that offers the best possible care while also being mindful of your financial situation.

  • Are your programs evidence based?

    Yes, our programs at Cornerstone Healing Center are rooted in evidence-based practices. We blend the wisdom of leading mental health professionals, teachers, and philosophers with proven curricula to offer effective rehabilitation. Our focus is on delivering the kind of care that has been scientifically shown to work so you can trust you're getting the best shot at a fulfilling, sober life.

  • Are your programs licensed and accredited?

    Cornerstone is fully licensed by the state of Arizona and are proud to be accredited by JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations). At Cornerstone Healing Center, meeting high healthcare standards isn't just a requirement; it's a commitment we take seriously to ensure you receive top-quality care.

  • What is Cornerstone's success rate?

    Our clients achieve remarkable progress in their journey to recovery, with outcomes that are twice as effective as many other drug and alcohol treatment programs. Despite facing complex challenges like long-term substance abuse or dual-diagnosis mental health issues, our patients consistently surpass typical success rates. This underscores the power of our holistic, evidence-based approach to addiction treatment and rehabilitation, offering a beacon of hope and healing for those grappling with addiction.

  • Do you offer relapse prevention and aftercare programs?

    We understand that recovery doesn't end when you leave our facility. That's why we offer a Sober Coaching Navigation Program to provide you with much-needed support after rehabilitation. We'll be there to help with practical needs like grocery shopping, job applications, and resume building. In addition, relapse prevention plans are a standard part of all our programs, ensuring you have the tools to maintain your sobriety in the long run. Each client is tasked with creating an individualized relapse prevention plan before discharge.

  • Do I need inpatient or residential treatment?

    Residential treatment, similar to inpatient rehab, is highly effective for severe addictions impacting key areas of your life, including work, school, and relationships. Our residential programs provide a 24/7 supportive and structured environment, away from daily distractions, focusing solely on your recovery. This setting is particularly advantageous if you're dealing with dual diagnosis issues requiring simultaneous treatment, or if outpatient programs haven't been successful for you. Our residential rehab offers comprehensive support, essential for overcoming addiction and embarking on a path to long-term sobriety. While we don't offer traditional inpatient treatment, our residential option provides similar benefits, creating a nurturing and supportive recovery journey.

  • What type of program do I need?

    Choosing the right drug rehab program depends on several factors like the severity of your addiction, your daily responsibilities, and any other mental health issues you might have. In many situations, it's recommended to progress through each level of care in sequence, starting with detox. This step-by-step approach allows you to build on the gains made at each stage, offering a more comprehensive and effective path to long-term recovery. If your addiction is severe, an inpatient program could be best. But if you can't take time off work or school, an outpatient program may suit you better. Also, if you have other mental health concerns, a dual-diagnosis treatment center like Cornerstone would be your best option. The key is to find a program that fits your specific needs so you're more likely to complete it and achieve long-term sobriety.
