Pinnacle Peak Recovery Philosophy
Pinnacle Peak Recovery provides a comprehensive approach to overcoming chemical dependency, alcoholism, process addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders by providing nationally recognized evidence-based treatment options in a safe, confidential, and supportive environment. Our services consist of Extended Care Treatment, Outpatient Treatment, Family Programs, and Alumni Services.
Areas of Specialization
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.
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.
I reached out to Pinnacle Peak Recovery when I had lost all hope and had no where else to turn. Their caring staff took me in and showed me that it is possible to live a fulfilling life without using drugs or alcohol. Since completing this program, I got my family back, started working and have finally achieved long term sobriety. I am eternally grateful for what this program has done for me and I would recommend it to anyone struggling!
Pinnacle Peak saved my life. I had nothing left. I had lost my job, home, family and friends. My addiction had won. The team at Pinnacle showed me that I could turn my life around. I am eternally grateful to their loving team. - Ryan

My Son went through Pinnacle Peak Recovery last January. After 3 long years of watching him suffer from addiction and 4 different inpatient programs, I am happy to say that his treatment was successful. He is now helping others in the community, working full time, and enrolling into ASU for summer sessions.
I would highly recommend pinnacle peak recovery to anyone struggling with chemical dependency issues. The majority of the staff have once been in the same boat and have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. They share their experiences with others who are still suffering and show people how to make it to the light.
