Vogue Recovery Center Philosophy

Vogue Recovery Treatment Center is a comprehensive multi- level substance abuse treatment center for adult men and women whose primary diagnosis is chemical dependency. We believe in treating the individual with a holistic program, offering individual therapy and case management, psychoeducation, group therapy, and evidence based neurocognitive treatment modalities (Brain Paint neurofeedback, Cranial Sacral/Polarity) . Clients entering treatment meet with our medical doctor within hours of intake and continue to be monitored and assessed with weekly visits for the entirety of their stay. We have registered nurses and licensed vocational nurses on staff to work closely with our medical team to provide the safest physician assisted withdrawal symptom management protocols possible. Clients will also meet with our psychiatrist on an as needed basis to address their mental health needs. Therapy is provided by our clinical team, headed by our Executive Clinical Director, Steve Longhi, LPC, LISAC. Our team of professional case managers and experienced Behavioral Health Technicians also provide 24-hour support to ensure that clients experience a nurturing and safe treatment process. Vogue Recovery Treatment Center utilizes a blend of treatment modalities that include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, Systems theory, Trauma Focused - CBT, and Motivational Interviewing; craniosacral and polarity therapies and neurofeedback; in addition to traditional 12 Step recovery, to encompass the needs of each client.  We encourage family participation and assist each client in formulating a comprehensive discharge plan that provides the best chance for long-term sobriety.

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.

  • Family Program
    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.

Vogue Recovery Center in Phoenix, Ariz. is a luxury residential treatment facility for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. As a small luxury center, Vogue provides clients with medical detox services and access to a full range of upscale therapeutic treatments and amenities, including yoga, deep tissue massage, gourmet meals, and more. According to a 2016 SAMHSA survey, the facility was one of only 5.3 percent of facilities in the state to offer non-hospital, residential detoxification. Vogue Recovery Center also operates a facility in Las Vegas.


To identify individual needs, clients typically begin treatment with an substance abuse assessment that considers their physical health and addiction history. If necessary, the facility specializes in detoxification services to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal from alcohol, prescription pain killers, and other substances.

Holistic in nature, treatment at Vogue Recovery Center aims to address the client's mind, body, and spirit. To support physical, mental and social recovery, the center provides group therapy and individual counseling, case management services, mentorship opportunities and supportive coaching, family support and counseling, and technology-based learning. The facility may also incorporate hypnotherapy and neurofeedback sessions to address trauma-related concerns.

Along with evidence-based treatment approaches, residents may participate in daily yoga or schedule a therapeutic massage. Other holistic options include music therapy, guided meditation, and nutritional counseling.


On staff at the facility in Arizona is a naturopathic medical doctor, master’s-level and board-certified addiction counselors, case managers, a 24-hour nursing staff, and an executive chef. According to the facility's website, the center offers a staff-to- client ratio of 5:1.


The luxury facility hosts a maximum of 10 clients in semi-private rooms. The home features comfortable, well-furnished common areas with a flat screen TV, and clients enjoy gourmet meals. Cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices are not permitted, nor are personal phone calls during the first week of treatment. Clients also participate in regular weekly outings, which may include nature hikes and recreational activities within the community.

It should be noted that the facility can monitor its Facebook page.

This place was a bad show. Showed up already detoxing like they said I should do I could be medicated right away. I ended up having to wait two days before they even got my meds in and all they kept saying was they were sorry and were trying. They couldn't care less about you they just want that insurance money like most treatment centers. They say they are better because they are smaller but dont let that little lie fool you. Also the food sucked. If they call the food they serve there 5 star I guess mc Donald's is a ten star restaurant. Also you stay locked up in the same building for 30 plus days besides on Saturday when you get to go on a "outing" for 2 hours. Other than that you dont ever leave the building and it's not that big. All you have to do to kill time is smoke and watch tv.. you may not believe me when I say this place sucks, but all the reviews you see about this place are all by the employees which are all friends by the way so they are more interested in talking with one another and what they are gonna do after they get off.. ... again dont believe me but when you go there and everything I've said is true dont say you weren't warned!!
