Review by Contributors


Scottsdale Recovery Center (SRC) operates multiple residential rehab facilities throughout Arizona and a partial hospitalization (PHP) treatment center that offers distinct tracks for young adults and individuals over the age of 35. Clients struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders stay in gender-specific, luxurious sober living homes and participate in individualized treatment plans integrating evidence-based psychotherapeutic and holistic modalities. Medical detoxification services are available on-site.


Both medical and holistic treatments to support clients’ withdrawal process are offered, including medication-assisted therapy involving Suboxone, Naltrexone, or Naloxone. Sessions with a physician are scheduled throughout the long-term rehabilitation process.

All clients follow treatment plans tailored to meet their specific needs and situations. Some group and individual therapy sessions are gender-separated and others focus on such topics as LGBT and executive client experiences, repeated relapses, “failure to launch,” and mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, and bipolar disorder.

In addition to common treatment modalities, which at SRC include cognitive behavioral therapy and 12-step concepts, clients also participate in yoga, guided meditation, and other experiential practices such as equine therapy. Family therapy is also a component of treatment.

SRC offers intervention, life coaching, less intensive outpatient treatment, drug testing, and alumni support meetings as well.


Scottsdale Recovery employs several master’s level therapists, licensed substance abuse counselors, certified life coaches and yoga instructors, and house managers.


Website photographs feature private and shared bedrooms, high-ceiling living spaces, large, modern kitchens and bathrooms, swimming pools, and sunlit group meeting rooms with plush furnishings. Residents participate in weekly recreational outings, including bowling, movies, hiking, and fishing.

Clients of the intensive treatment programs live in gender-specific housing and are transported to a centralized treatment center. Transportation is also provided to 12-step meetings, a gym, organized recreational activities, and appointments with healthcare providers or court officials if needed. The center’s website references locations in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, and Chandler and indicates that pet-friendly accommodations are available.


The one former client who had submitted feedback to at the time of this writing characterized the program as life-saving, rating the effectiveness of treatment five out of five stars.

Likewise, 12 Google reviews written by a mix of alumni and loved ones provided an average rating of 4.8 out of five for SRC. In a representative review, Shelbie wrote that the treatment program “turned my life around” and that she regained custody of her child. Another alum, Colleen, also reported reconciliation with family members.[1]

Yelp reviewers provided similar, overwhelmingly positive feedback and recommendations. Of 33 reviews, most by former clients, only three were critical. Two mentioned administrative issues related to scheduling and billing, and one focused on their experience of insufficient one-on-one therapy and dual diagnosis treatment. The remaining 30 reviews reflected strong satisfaction with staff, accommodations, and treatment and several described improved family relations and employment situations.[2]


All five loved ones providing with reviews gave the center excellent feedback. The sole survey respondent, Valerie, awarded all metrics measuring accommodations (including meals, nutrition, opportunities for exercise and leisure, and the facility’s cleanliness and upkeep) five stars. The staff’s supportiveness, the program’s involvement of family, treatment’s effectiveness, and cost also received five-star ratings. She wrote that her daughter was able to experience purpose, happiness, and health as a result of rehab at SRC.

Other parents also noted the staff’s dedication to helping their clients.


More than a dozen accepted insurance providers are listed on the facility’s website; most coverage is through PPO plans. Scottsdale Recovery Center also partners with My Treatment Lender for treatment financing options.

I want to personally thank two individuals for all of the hard work they do. My son was heading down a terrible path before he finally hit his bottom. I watched his addiction destroy everything including our family. If it wasn't for Scottsdale recovery center my son would not be alive! There are not enough words that I could write to thank you guys for all you have done and what you continue to do!

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!
