Pathfinders Recovery Center, Scottsdale Philosophy
At Pathfinders Recovery Center, we are committed to helping addicts across The Valley overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Our team of highly qualified clinical and medical staff have been working with clients struggling with addiction for decades. Many of us have been through the fight against addiction ourselves. We know just how difficult this time can be and how important it is to be surrounded by a supportive, positive environment during early recovery. With the knowledge and experience to help our clients fight their battle against addiction, Pathfinders has the most effective rehabilitation program in the state of Arizona.
Areas of Specialization
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
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.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
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.
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.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
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.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
The owners at Pathfinders are some of the most compassionate and amazing people I have ever met. They are all experienced, well educated, and connected with the recovery community. My husband went to the facility in late January and received more help than we could have ever imagined. Even after he completed his program, they all stay in touch with him. Lawrence, Matt, and Lucas have become a part of our family and we are so grateful for all of their help!
I checked into Pathfinders Recovery Center in late January 2017, and after graduating 90 days later, I can sincerely say that their reputations precede them. I would trust the whole staff with my life; they prioritized my needs and safety while maintaining the important relationship dynamic that saved my life. They addressed my problems where I was unable to see them, they urged me to take action on my recovery, and most importantly they loved me and taught me to love myself. I would highly recommend their treatment program to anyone struggling with addiction. Lucas and Lawrence have an immense amount of experience in recovery and have the rare gift of being able to empathize with anyone put in front of them.
I can speak VERY highly of this facility. I was nervous at first because I had never been to a treatment center before and I am not from the area. But I can honestly say that they made the transition I wanted make a lot easier. Thank you to the Pathfinders team and all their help
I've never seen a more dedicated facility and team that goes out of their way to help those in need! Definitely a top notch rehab facility
