Located in Temple, Ariz., the Pathway Program provides a range of treatment services for young adults and adolescents struggling with substance use disorder.

The center is one of the 165 (48.4 percent) of Arizona treatment centers that offer intensive treatment programming (IOP).

In addition to residential programs, the facility also offers outpatient options and support groups for clients and parents.


The Pathway Program has two specialized residential programs -- one for teens ages 13 to 17, and one for young adults ages 18 to 25. The center is one of the 109 (32 percent) of Arizona treatment centers that treat adolescents.

Treatment at the adolescent program, which is called the Step Two Recovery Center, lasts 45 days and includes individual counseling, group therapy, and regular family involvement. Residents are also given the opportunity to attend 12-step meetings, which are used by 59.2 percent of Arizona treatment centers, and interact with same-age individuals in recovery.

Residential treatment for young adults is provided in partnership with Step One, a local sober living treatment facility. The three- to six-month program combines Step One's structured living and 24-hour supervision with Pathway's intensive outpatient program (IOP).

In addition to the IOP, which clients may choose attend separately from sober living, Pathway provides two specialized six- to 12-week outpatient programs for teens and young adults. Both programs meet five days a week and include counseling, 12-step support group facilitation, skill-building and coping skills groups, and aftercare options. Support groups for parents and families are also offered.


According to the facility's website, the treatment team includes licensed and certified substance abuse and addiction counselors, as well as an adolescent and adult certified psychiatrist and a residential program manager.


The Step Two Recovery Center for teens has eight beds and is located on a rural property in Gilbert, Ariz. The Step One program provides sober living for young adults in Phoenix.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has received one review from an alum who wrote: "Staff was amazing, treatment was very successful. Clean, organized, great staff."

On Google, the Pathways Program earned an average rating of 4.8 out of five stars based on 44 reviews.[1] "This is an excellent program! The staff is awesome and super helpful. And they really make sure you get the help you need," wrote Cody in a representative review.


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs, however HealthGrove reports that the Step Two Recovery Center for teens accepts Access to Recovery vouchers and state insurance other than Medicaid.
