Valor Behavioral Healthcare: Addiction Treatment Center Philosophy
VALOR BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE is a full-service, long-term substance abuse treatment facility located in the heart of Scottsdale, AZ. Valor provides a unique approach to recovery focusing on drug and alcohol addiction along with a specialization in dual diagnosis patients suffering from other mental health disorders. We offer powerful and effective methods of treatment for those suffering from substance abuse disorder.
Our main goal is to offer our clients an upscale, safe and structured environment while providing them with support, respect, inspiration and a sense of belonging. We focus on the importance of education and empowerment to not only the suffering addict but the families who are also affected by addiction; with the purpose of reuniting them with their loved ones, leading them on a path of harmony, serenity, and a well-balanced life.
At valor, we understand the importance of individuality. Although we run a very well structured program we allow room for individuality for each and every client. We clearly identify the needs of each individual by assessing various aspects of their life, such as addiction patterns, external factors, client’s intentions, etc., so that we may ensure effective personal growth as well as a positive and successful recovery.
Valor’s primary mission is to provide our clients with relapse prevention tools and give them the support needed to manage their long-term sobriety.
We hold our client’s life and future to high standards. We focus on preparing them for a positive and healthy life outside of recovery and actively work with them to become contributing members of society.
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.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
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.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

Having spent many years battling my own addiction and working in the treatment field, I have experienced many addiction treatment facilities across the country. Valor has built one of the premiere treatment centers in Arizona and anywhere across the United States. The staff at Valor has the experience and credibility to help suffering addicts get the help they need. From the beautiful facility they have built for treatment to the upscale home that clients live in, they provide a safe and comfortable environment to allow clients and their family the opportunity to begin the road to recovery. I would recommend Valor to anyone needing treatment for drug/alcohol addiction. There is no treatment center in Arizona that can match the experience or program that Valor has built.
When I was looking for treatment for my son, a struggling heroin addict, I was at a loss as what to do. I called places over and over again. Most places were not willing to help, did not answer my questions, and gave the runaround with insurance and finances. When I found Valor's website, it was a last ditch effort to find help. The staff at Valor answered the phone immediately and were quick to assure me that they would help whether it was at their center or another one. They immediately ran my son's insurance which they took, arranged detox, and gave us all necessary instructions on where to take my son. The entire process was smooth and my son is doing fantastic as a client of Valor Behavioral Healthcare. Valor is there to help the next struggling addict, not just take their money as so many other treatment centers were from my experience. I would recommend Valor to anyone who is i need or knows someone in need of beating their addiction.
I have recently been seeking out treatment centers for my wife, a struggling alcoholic. After visits with multiple centers face-to-face, I can say that I am highly impressed with my experience with Valor. The second I walked in the door I was greeted by friendly staff members, and a setting that was warm and comfortable for any client/family member. I got time with 2 of the therapists to talk about my wife and was given a ton of direction and insight on what I can do to help her. They ran insurance while I was there and laid out what finances, the program and the entire experience would be like not only for my wife, but myself as well. My wife is in detox as of today, and I look forward to her getting her life back, my kids getting their mom back and she and I rekindling our marriage with a life of sobriety. Thank you so much Valor. I look forward to the experience.
They truly care about helping others! I would recommend them to anyone. When you are in need of a place like this, it is critical to feel like you are in good hands, like you are taken seriously, like they understand you and are here for you. Addiction is a very hard thing to go through, whether you are the patient of a family member of the patient. It is very important to know that you will be taken care of in such a critical time. What a wonderful facility.
Immediately upon walking in I could not believe my eyes, this center is absolutely gorgeous! Everything is perfect: the ambiance, the flow, and the facilities are all brand new and state-of-the-art. Everything has clearly been arranged with the clients and their healthy recovery in mind. The staff is amazing! They are all so friendly and bring decades of experience to the table. I've never seen such a gorgeous center and united, dedicated team all in one place like this before. I would absolutely recommend Valor to anyone who wishes to take their recovery seriously with a team of accomplished professionals in the most comfortable and functional center available in the Valley!
Valor Behavioral Healthcare has been an amazing experience for me. I gained a lot of knowledge to help me maintain my sobriety, helped me save my marriage, and has created a path that is destined for success. I recommend this program to anyone who needs help for addiction. The staff at Valor are helpful, knowledgeable, and very friendly. You will not want to leave the facility. I owe my life to Valor Behavioral Healthcare and will forever be grateful…
