Canyon View Treatment Centers Philosophy
Canyon View Treatment Center is an alternative to “fixed length” residential treatment center programs. These often run a set 30, 60 or 90 days, are prohibitively expensive for most families, and offer little in the way of individual guidance. As a Client Centered substance abuse treatment program we address the root causes that led your loved one to self-medicating, acting out, and making negative lifestyle choices. These are almost always accompanied by mental health issues and disorders which keep the cycle forever spinning downward. By placing our focus, and our mission, on our clients and their families, we have found that addicts and alcoholics alike respond, relate, and become engaged.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
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.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Prior to admission, clients must complete an intake evaluation, which can be done by phone. Treatment at Canyon View is highly individualized and designed to focus on each client’s “independent thinking modality.”
Utilizing a process called “cue extinction,” the facility helps clients to better understand and interpret their thinking patterns via CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and CBR (cognitive behavioral renewal) techniques, so they can learn to identify the negative, self-defeating thoughts that lead to poor decision-making and substance abuse.
The program includes gender-specific group therapy, one-on-one counseling, nutritional education, life coaching, and experiential activities such as hiking (trips are frequently taken through the Weir Canyon Wilderness).
Canyon View Treatment Centers' treatment team includes a staff of clinical therapists, including a certified addictions treatment counselor who has been in the substance abuse treatment industry for more than 20 years.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, four alumni provided opposing feedback for Canyon View Treatment Centers. Ted reported to Rehabs.com: "The staff were amazing food was wonderful and the quality of care was on point. I have the tools to stay sober today that I didn't have before!" He gave five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, as did former client B.F., who added, "very caring and made me feel special."
Contrastingly, alum S.Y. felt the facility was "not run well," adding, "They just want your money." Former client J.W. cited even more criticisms, feeling that insurance was over-billed and expressing concerns about the inappropriate interactions between clients. "The nurses have no idea what they are doing, they don't have a doctor available," J.W. added.
According to the facility’s website, some private insurance are accepted.
