Embark Recovery Philosophy

Teaching men honesty, integrity and recovery through compassion, dedication and excellence. Our staff has been successfully helping those with addiction for many years. Embark Recovery Center is owned and operated by individuals who have suffered from the disease of addiction first hand, and know the struggles our clients deal with day in and day out. Our vision is to give back to our community by leveraging our experience and providing the same opportunity for success that was given to us. Our staff shows our clients a path to recovery using proven methodologies, access to experienced professionals and by utilization of real life examples of their own successes.

Areas of Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy
    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.

  • Family Program
    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.

Rehabs.com Editorial Review

Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Located in a serene, forested area outside of Prescott, Arizona, Embark Recovery Center offers long-term residential treatment and intensive outpatient (IOP) programs for adult men seeking addiction recovery.


The residential program provides clients with a safe, structured environment in a homelike setting. Along with primary treatment services, men also learn essential life skills, such as budgeting, conflict resolution, emotion regulation, and employment training. In fact, along with achieving sobriety, one of the center’s primary treatment goals is to help clients find a job.

Upon entry, all clients undergo an initial evaluation that helps inform a tailored treatment curriculum. When appropriate, medication management is available to assist with any psychiatric issues. With treatment based in the 12-Steps, programming features community-based AA and NA meetings, daily group therapy, weekly individual counseling sessions, trauma workshops, and relapse prevention education.

Recreational therapy is also integral to the center’s treatment plan, and men participate in weekly adventure outings, which may include equine therapy and hiking the nearby area. Upon completion of the residential program, residents may enroll in the IOP track as a step-down service. Referrals to sober living homes in and around Prescott are also available.


Embark Recovery is headed by management who have first-hand experience with addiction along with a team of experienced psychiatrists, behavioral health counselors, therapists, and administrative directors.


Embark Recovery has 28 beds total, and residents enjoy spacious rooms, comfortable living areas, and sweeping views of the nearby mountains. The home boasts lots of natural light, a second-floor balcony to enjoy the view, and benefits from Prescott’s mild climate, light mountain breeze, and bright sun.

While contact with friends and family members outside the residence is limited at first, a liaison is on staff to make weekly phone calls to keep loved ones informed of the resident’s progress.


Embark Recovery Center is a relatively new treatment facility, and alumni reviews are scarce. The single former client polled by Rehabs.com gave perfect five-star ratings for the center’s treatment effectiveness, accommodations, and meal quality, and wrote: “Great staff! A place where you will get results!”

Additionally, on Google, where four individuals each awarded the center a perfect five-star rating, alumni credited the center with saving their lives. “My experience at Embark Recovery was phenomenal. While at Embark I made friends that I will have for life and memories that I will always cherish. The therapeutical team at Embark was also very helpful in group sessions and one on one therapy,” Joe posted in a representative statement.[1]


In a less positive review, the spouse of a former client shared their family’s disappointment with Rehabs.com. “The case managers...don't make sure clients are treated properly...Treatment length is longer than it should be. And finally, the over night house managers sleep when they're supposed to stay awake in case something happens. My husband broke his foot while rock climbing one day there...This place is a joke.”


The facility accepts private insurance such as Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna, and can offer up to 100 percent financial aid to qualified clientele. For specific pricing, the facility recommends that prospective clients call to speak with an admissions specialist, available 24 hours a day.

Embark Recovery is the best treatment center to attend in the US! I am from New Jersey and I had the best possible help from the peers and therapists. They taught me basic life skills and how to cope with everyday life. The therapist helped me through my toughest times and taught me how to move through traumatic experiences in my life. My Case Managers were attentive and made sure all of my needs were met. They arranged all doctors appointments and coached my family through this entire process. I am extremely grateful for everything they have done for me!

Wonderful place! Taught me a lot of things not just about my addiction but also real life issues i needed to overcome.

No strengths. The case managers...don't make sure clients are treated properly...Treatment length is longer than it should be. And finally, the over night house managers sleep when they're supposed to stay awake in case something happens. My husband broke his foot while rock climbing one day there...This place is a joke.
