Finding the right treatment for you or your loved one’s specific needs can be challenging. Substance abuse and mental illness does not respond to a “one size fits all” approach. Scottsdale Providence provides individualized treatment designed to address issues including drug and alcohol addiction, mood disorders, trauma and co-occurring disorders. Our goal is for every client to experience a profound change through cutting edge, evidence-based practices provided by an experienced, compassionate team, in a safe, luxurious Scottsdale environment. We know that true change is possible and sustainable.

We offer PHP, IOP and Evening IOP. Our therapists work with you to identify your goals and develop a program that fits you. Our comprehensive addiction treatment program includes individual and group therapy, psychiatric care and 12-Step Facilitation. The clinical foundation of our program is in Interactive Journaling, an innovative experiential modality that puts the client at the center of their change process. Our expert treatment team blends CBT, Motivational Interviewing, DBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, EMDR, Neurofeedback and Occupational Therapy to promote long term recovery. Psychiatric care, case management, discharge planning, acupuncture, yoga and fitness all make up a truly comprehensive treatment experience.


Regular family therapy sessions are built into our treatment program along with weekly visitation. We offer a monthly Family Meeting support group and a Family Workshop to provide essential tools for improving communication, establishing healthy boundaries and repairing damaged relationships.

Scottsdale Providence maintains a strong network of alumni. Our alumni program includes weekly aftercare groups, regular check-ins, alumni-run support groups, quarterly fellowship events and an annual camping trip.


EMDR stands for – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Scottsdale Providence offers EMDR therapy to clients suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder and other trauma-related distress. As trauma is common among those struggling with addiction and mental health disorders, this type of therapy is a natural fit for inclusion in a comprehensive treatment program.

Solution-focused therapy, also known as solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), is an approach that empowers clients to use their innate ability to find solutions to their own problems.

Narrative Therapy is a counseling modality used to help people gain new perspectives on past life events and issues. It aims to give people distance from the stories they have constructed or “narrated” in response to these events, in order to “rewrite” a new narrative that better reflects their identity, goals and ideals. This technique helps clients discover how their internalized reactions may have shaped their identity, take accountability for them and find more empowering narratives in order to move forward positively.

Treating this directly provides the best chance for a patient to thrive in sobriety.

Grief often plays a significant role in the lives of our patients and their loved ones. It is the natural response to a change in routine. Although many associate grief with significant life events such as a death or divorce, grief often accompanies other events—such as changes in lifestyle, loss of an addiction, or the loss of dreams or expectations. Facing and addressing grief through a healthy process is a vital component to a successful recovery plan.

For most people, successful readjustment after treatment requires support and learning how to re-engage with life in a positive way without substances. Occupational therapy aids in treatment by helping patients to reestablish roles and identities that are meaningful to them.
