Important Things to Know When Choosing an Addiction Treatment Center

Finding the best recovery treatment center for yourself or a loved one can be a difficult and confusing process.

However, knowing what to look for simplifies the process and makes choosing the best facility much easier.

Accreditation, Licensing, and Staff

Checking the accreditation of the treatment centers you are considering is essential. Addiction recovery centers, just like educational institutions, should be accredited. The highest level of accreditation for addiction and mental health service organizations is the Joint Commission.

Canyon Vista Recovery Center is accredited by the Joint Commission and several additional agencies, which ensures that it provides its residents with the highest standards of quality care, treatment, and services. Licensed behavioral health professionals, certified clinicians, and additional staff members are dedicated and caring as they work toward a healthy recovery for each individual.

The Importance of Evidence-Based Treatment

Not every substance addiction recovery center uses the same methods of treatment. Many facilities use methods that have not been scientifically proven to be valid. Evidence-based treatment means the various therapies have been proven scientifically valid through research and produce outcomes that are positive.

The highly skilled professionals at Canyon Vista use a variety of evidence-based methods for treating addiction and any coexisting disorders. Several of the evidence-based treatment methods used include motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), 12-Step programs, and other self-help groups.

An Integrated Approach to Treat the Whole Person

There are some drug and alcohol rehab facilities that use the same, or a select few, treatment methods regardless of the addicted person’s specific needs. Each person is different and there should not be a cookie cutter approach to treatment.

Canyon Vista Recovery Center provides an integrated approach to treatment focusing on the whole person and the specific needs of each resident. To prepare for long-term recovery, clients receive evidence-based clinical care along with holistic and psychiatric care ensuring that the whole person, mind, body, and soul, is treated. Holistic therapies help each individual learn how to nurture their body and mind as they heal from the damages of addiction. A few examples of different types of holistic therapies provided are nutritional therapy, therapeutic recreation, music therapy, yoga, meditation, and art therapy.

A Calm and Soothing Environment

For many people, going to a substance abuse treatment center makes them nervous and anxious. As the journey towards recovery begins, it is important that the recovery facility chosen is comfortable with a home-like feeling. There should be places to relax alone or gather with others. The facility should have a relaxing atmosphere and all areas, both private and common, should be clean and pleasing to the eye.

Located in historic Mesa, Arizona, the serene residential campus of Canyon Vista is made up of seven separate homes nestled between trees and beautiful grassy lawns. Each home is gender specific, comfortable, and spacious. The beautifully decorated houses each have seven bedrooms and three bathrooms stylishly decorated to provide a warm home-like feeling. There is a common area in each home with comfortable couches and a TV. Residents have private and common areas where they can relax and feel safe allowing them to focus on their sobriety. Clients enjoy a morning walk to a nearby 12-Step meeting and when they return to the campus, they help in making a nutritious breakfast before beginning their therapy for the day.

A Full Continuum of Care

Being addicted to drugs or alcohol is a chronic and complex illness. There is no cure. There is no quick fix. Just like diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure substance addiction is considered a chronic medical condition. Although it cannot be cured, it can be managed. Once you learn the necessary skills to maintain your sobriety, you must be vigilant and proactive in managing and protecting your sobriety.

Canyon Vista offers a full continuum of care including outpatient, inpatient, and extended care treatment programs. Each client is provided with the tools they need along with continuing support as they travel the road to recovery and a healthy and sober life.

Working with Your Insurance

Residential treatment centers for substance abuse can be expensive. Trying to read and understand an insurance policy can often be overwhelming. A quality treatment center should have a trained professional to help you determine what your insurance covers and what is the best way to pay for the needed treatment.

Canyon Vista Recovery Center provides a simple verification form that you can fill out and submit to find out if your insurance company will cover the cost, or partial cost, of treatment. Then, trained professionals will work with you to explain your coverage and minimize out-of-pocket expenses. At this time, Canyon Vista accepts most private insurance plans. If private insurance is not an option, a private-pay cash rate is offered and payment plans are available.
