Treatment Center Setting
Fountain Hills Recovery Philosophy
Our program strives to uncover, acknowledge, and address the individual needs of our clients through a variety of therapy and treatment options. Our treatment approach matches the strengths from both client and staff to formulate a workable plan for recovery. We recognize that the impact drug and alcohol abuse has on an individual can vary, so our admissions process begins with developing a clear understanding of every client's current situation. After our initial assessment, a variety of therapeutic approaches are available to maximize the probability of a positive long term outcome for the client.
Areas of Specialization
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Process Abuse Treatment
Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
I saw myself in other places more as a statistic rather than an actual person . . . Having people really stand by my side and do anything in their power to see me succeed- it meant a lot to me that people actually cared.
