Canyon Crossing Recovery for Women Philosophy
Located in Prescott, Arizona, Canyon Crossing Recovery is a transitional living facility designed exclusively for women. The 12-step based program combines a structured living environment with intensive outpatient care to address the core issues that contribute to continued drug and alcohol abuse. Women are taught how to change self-destructive behavioral patterns, manage cravings, identify triggers, and live a life filled with confidence, self-love, and grace. Living in a nurturing and supportive environment with their peers, clients become self-empowered, learn how to establish meaningful relationships, and begin to build a solid foundation for long-lasting recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
A form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

12-Step Based Therapy
Canyon Crossing Recovery is capable of completely changing lives of women fighting drug and alcohol addiction. I learned this through complete surrender of self will and trust in the staff. It was not an easy task, and I resisted the program my first few months in the house, but when I became willing to be helped, my life completely turned around for the better. The main goals of CCR are to teach women to be independent and to be able to walk with integrity and grace no matter what comes up in life. I can honestly say that I was able to do all of those things when I graduated Canyon. Now it doesn't matter what happens in my life, I can handle any situation with grace and know what is right and wrong. The program also uses a very effective combination of outpatient therapy and recovery tools. While I was at CCR, I was introduced to the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Initially, I was unwilling to work the program and felt very lost in life. Once I began to trust Canyon and AA, I immediately felt relief. The therapists and the housing staff were such a large part of my recovery in the first few months because they were there to help me until I could help myself. The staff is so genuine and willing to help anyone that has a desire to be helped. I realized that I could trust people and feel happiness for the first time, which was a miracle. I was able to experience a lot of self discovery through CCR, and recover through the help of AA. One of the best parts of Canyon Crossing is the relationships that are formed with the other clients, and the women in AA in the town of Prescott, AZ. I have met so many amazing women that share my story, and have made to the other side as well. The bond that is formed between the women in the house is indescribable. I have never felt so closely connected to any single group of people in my entire life. After I graduated I had the opportunity to go home, but I decided to visit CCR to celebrate one year of sobriety. I was able to stay with many of the women I went through the house with and it felt so natural. I can't say enough great things about CCR. It has truly changed my life and given me the motivation to try to make a difference in other people's lives.- Kiki R
Our daughter has found her way out of the dark forest because of her help from Canyon Crossings Recovery. We were in despair and agony at the recognition of her addiction. We needed help; she needed immediate help. After her detox program, she was referred to Erin's program at Canyon Crossings. Through their practiced and proven program of surrender and recognition of the addiction, she has become strong again. There is accountability, structure, counseling, relationship advice, and support. Some of the experience was uncomfortable for her and this was needed for her to come to terms with her distorted reality. She is encouraged, loved, and given the skills necessary to embrace herself again and be a part of a productive society. She will now move into the alum house where her growth will continue. We are extremely pleased with the Canyon Crossings Recovery program and we are eternally grateful for the help and guidance it has given our family.- C and G
When I came to Canyon Crossing Recovery from an inpatient detox center, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew that I was an alcoholic and a drug addict and that my life, up until this point, was completely unmanageable in every regard. My life had brought me to the point of IV drug use in which I was living a double life. For years I had worn the façade that everything was alright. I was working as an RN in an Emergency Department yet had so much self loathing and hatred towards the world, the best choice outside of numbing myself to oblivion, with drugs and alcohol, seemed like suicide. Most people saw me as a woman who had everything together; a career, a relationship, financial success, intelligence, education, and professional accomplishments. However, the reality of the situation was that I had absolutely no coping skills and no understanding of anything besides the hell I was living in on a day to day basis. I believed that my sheer will power, intelligence, and strength would be enough to get me through life. I believed that I deserved the misery I was living in and that I did not deserve to be happy. I had come to the conclusion that no one would ever understand me, accept me, or love me, and that I didn’t fit in anywhere. I had internalized everything in my life believing that I could only ever rely on myself and lived in a constant state of shame and guilt in which I was honest with no one. Not even myself. I lived in fear that if people knew the truth about me and my life, I would be locked up an institution somewhere. The truth is, I was suffering from an untreated disease, that even as an RN, I didn’t recognize until it was almost too late. Canyon Crossing Recovery allowed me to step back from the things I believed defined me, and take an honest and true look within myself. To see who I was as a person. Not as a nurse, not as an over achiever and perfectionist, and not as “just” a drug addict and alcoholic. I was encouraged and guided to see and accept myself as a person or worth and value with dignity and grace. I was given support in areas of my life that I had never dealt with before. I was shown ways to deal with the trauma and abuse I had suffered in my life so that I could realize that I am not a victim; I am a survivor. I learned to trust other women who had been through similar struggles and loved me until I could love myself. I learned to get vulnerable with people who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. I found a new understanding of life in which slowly yet surely, my outlook on life changed from one of depression and hopelessness to gratitude and joy. I learned to be kinder to myself, more compassionate with myself, and be honest with myself. I learned to embrace my heart and allow it to guide me towards happiness and peace. The illusion of judgment I had placed on myself and believed others viewed me with seemed to slowly dissolve. I could accept pain as a touchstone to growth, and not live in a constant state of fear that only perpetuated my shame spiral. Today, because of Canyon Crossing Recovery, the women I have met through the program, and the support I have had, I can truly say that today I am a grateful alcoholic and drug addict. I can look at my past, in hindsight, and see that there are no coincidences. Synchronistic events, in my life, have unfolded in a way that the universe has had planned for me. So that I can help some other woman down the road, who comes in broken and desperate, like I was, and love her until she is able to love herself. Without knowing death I would never have learned to love life. Without having endured suffering, pain and sadness, I would never be able to feel true happiness. We all have a story to tell. This just happens to be mine.- Amanda W
