Review by Contributors


With a strong focus on young adults, relapse prevention, and ongoing sobriety and health, Scottsdale Recovery Center is a Scottsdale, Ariz. treatment facility dedicated to long-term solutions for men and women struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. Its gender-specific, residential-style PHPs (partial hospitalization programs) strive to provide a lifestyle template for living a sober and fulfilling life. Scottsdale Recovery Center also provides outpatient treatment services, as well as medical detox.


To develop an individualized treatment plan, clients undergo an initial assessment and evaluation. Scottsdale Recovery Center’s approach to programming includes evidence-based treatment, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), life skills and relapse prevention workshops, psycho-educational groups, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Family therapy is also a component of treatment.

The facility’s gender-specific programming addresses the unique needs of both men and women and allows for an added level of comfort and relevance. Also, 12-step principles and practices are integrated into the overall treatment approach, and clients receive one-on-one therapy, either once or twice weekly, depending on his or her personal needs. Individuals also participate in holistic therapies and recreational activities, such as yoga, weekly guided meditation groups, and equine therapy. Scottsdale Recovery also offers specialized holistic programs and treatment tracks for LGBT individuals and executives.

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) and other step-down outpatient services are offered to clients who wish to continue their care.


Scottsdale Recovery Center is led by a team of therapists, licensed substance abuse counselors, clinicians, medical doctors, certified life coaches, wellness practitioners, and specialized counselors. The program is also supported by yoga instructors, house managers, and equine therapists.


Clients live in gender-specific housing located a short distance from the treatment center. House managers provide daily transportation to the treatment center, as well as to 12-step meetings, the gym, organized recreational activities, and doctors appointments/court and probation/parole visits if needed.

My son is a recovering heroin addict. After a 7 day in detox, he spent 90 days in Scottsdale Recovery Center as an inpatient. He is living a happy drug free life now. I cannot thank the staff and his therapists enough. They know what they are doing and they do not give up on a person with an addiction. Do you want to help yourself, they will help you. Are you looking for a place for your loved one, this is the place.

Scottsdale Recovery Center is definitely an amazing treatment experience! My son had been to 3 other inpatient drug rehabs over the past few years, all of which made many promises and rarely followed through. After spending 4 months at SRC I have seen changes in him unlike anything ever before...thank you for giving me my son back!

I cannot say enough good things about this facility. It may not work for everyone because everyone handles treatment differently. But for my daughter this program worked! After her 90 days she didn't want to come home and decided to stay for 90 more days and attend their Phase 2 which allows a little more freedom such as being able to maintain a part time job. Would definitely recommend this facility very highly! My daughter never wanted treatment when we thought she would benefit. This time it was HER decision and I cannot believe how healthy looking and happy she is!
