Areas of Specialization
Equine assisted therapy has shown evidenced-based efficacy in clients with substance use and co-occurring disorders, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. Research currently reveals that the human animal bond can enhance a person’s life on many levels including emotional growth, increasing concentration levels, boosting self confidence, anxiety reduction, and increasing self-efficacy.
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.

ABOUT A SOBER WAY HOME
Located in the scenic Arizona city of Prescott, A Sober Way Home offers long-term, gender-specific residential substance abuse treatment for men and women ages 18 and older. There is a specialized program for young adults, which includes men and women between the ages of 18 and 27. Detox services are available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
A Sober Way Home offers three phases of treatment: a stabilization and foundation building stage, a primary stage, and a transitional stage. Individual counseling sessions, group therapy, and holistic treatments such as yoga, massage, and equine therapy comprise treatment. Neurofeedback is provided at the facility’s cutting-edge Brain Center. Clients are also encouraged to work the 12-Steps and attend the area’s multiple Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings.
Weekly groups focus on nutrition, expressive arts, and spirituality. Time is set aside each day of the week for chores, physical fitness, or off-campus excursions.
Families are invited to participate in monthly workshops on Fridays and Saturdays. In addition, the facility addresses co-occurring disorders and offers additional treatment tracks for gambling, Christ-centered recovery, pregnant women, and young opiate users.
The clinical team provides an individualized and comprehensive aftercare and relapse prevention plan for each client to follow upon leaving treatment.
A Sober Way Home’s team includes a psychiatrist, a naturopathic physician, licensed clinical social workers, licensed family therapists, certified drug and alcohol counselors, a trauma therapist, a yoga teacher, and a chef. There are also large teams of residential managers for both the women’s and men’s facilities. The facility has a staff-to-client ratio of 1:8.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
A Sober Way Home does not operate on a campus. Rather, residents stay in one of the facility’s monitored, gender-specific sober living homes that are separate from, but within easy reach of the treatment facility.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the ten former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, six offered positive reviews, one offered a mixed review, and three provided negative feedback. The clients who reported positive experiences praised the staff highly, and all awarded them five out of five stars for their level of training and experience. “My therapist was outstanding, worked with my needs that I did not think could be met, regarding self-forgiveness, self-worth, and spirituality,” wrote Justin in a representative review.
The client who provided the mixed review attended the gambling program and noted that while the groups and feedback from other clients were helpful, the staff seemed overworked. “I felt like I was just a number and not a cared about client,” they wrote.
Complaints from the three unsatisfied alumni included objection to the facility’s focus on AA, treatment that was not helpful for clients under 30, and a claim that the rehab was just in the business for monetary purposes.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
All three loved one surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing offered the facility positive feedback, commenting on the helpfulness of the family program and the variety of activities. “Overall it helped a lot and is a great place for rehabilitation,” an anonymous loved one wrote in a representative review.
WHAT STAFF SAY
The two staffers surveyed by Rehabs.com gave the facility positive reviews. One anonymous reviewer, who was a house manager, gave the facility almost all four and five out of five stars across 15 different evaluated metrics, including the facility’s willingness to put clients’ interests first, its respect for protocols surrounding client privacy, and the experience and treatment credentials of the facility’s staff. Despite noting that the facility could use a stronger transitional program, the reviewer wrote: “Many of the staff members are also in recovery and are able to share their own experience, strengths and hope. Staff has the ability to relate with compassion and empathy.”
E.W., who is in recovery herself, described the facility as an “amazing company to work for. The clients are treated with love and respect.”
