About Pinnacle Peak

Pinnacle Peak Recovery is a residential and intensive outpatient treatment facility located in Scottsdale, Arizona. We offer nationally recognized, evidence-based treatment options. Our program focuses on a comprehensive and holistic approach to overcoming addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. Our rehab aspires to the highest level of care and is proud to have received accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

Clinical Philosophy

At Pinnacle Peak Recovery our  Clinical philosophy is one rooted in the fundamentals of Marriage and Family therapy theory (systems theory). We model a healthy family structure that includes boundaries, secure attachments, healthy communication, and an emotionally safe space for family members (clients) to get to the root of what is triggering their substance abuse disease.

We provide a wealth of psychoeducation partnered with innovative empirically
based therapeutic techniques that stimulate the change needed to break generational dysfunctional patterns of behavior that have lead to substance abuse issues.

Moreover, we understand that growth is a continuous process so we strive to equip our family members with realistic life skills to include critical thinking and community accountability.  

We believe that if we can help an individual understand their relational family of origin,self identity, and increased relational emotional IQ; there is an increased chance for long term recovery.

Full Continuum of Care and Personalized Treatment

At Pinnacle Peak we offer an extensive continuum of care. This includes extended care treatment, primary care treatment, outpatient treatment, family programs, alumni services and relapse prevention. Our personalized treatment experience starts with one of our master’s level therapists working with the client to construct a therapy program suited to their unique needs.

Our Caring Staff

Our caring staff dedicates their time to meet each individual’s unique needs by providing a client-centered approach. Our team of professionals includes a psychiatrist, medical doctor, psychiatric nurse, nurse practitioner, as well as master’s-level licensed therapists and case managers. Everyone on our staff, from our client care managers to our therapists, are committed to helping our clients achieve a successful recovery.

Comprehensive, Holistic, Evidenced-Based Therapies and Services

Pinnacle Peak offers the latest in cutting-edge therapies and services. We strive to provide our clients with the most effective treatments available. Our client care options include access to medical detox and physician-directed medication management. Our programs include therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, individual and group therapy, trauma therapy, family therapy, and others. We also offer mindfulness training, anger management, Tai Chi, Yoga, outdoor therapeutic adventures, 12-step, and non-12-step programs, and many more.

Independent Living Skills

In addition to evidence-based treatments, clients learn skills that they need to live a healthy, rewarding and productive life. Some skills that clients learn include relapse prevention, skills, nutrition education, career/education, path development, mindfulness training and stress management.

Therapeutic Activities

The activities that are offered in our program can help clients find happiness and joy in their lives without substances. Holistic treatments include rock climbing, hiking, team sports, bowling and yoga, as well as a gym membership. Our clients also have the opportunity to become involved with the recovery fellowship of Arizona and attend retreats, conventions and sober events. Learning new ways to have fun can help clients find an important element in not only healing, but also in preventing relapse and staying sober beyond treatment.

Primary Care Treatment

Pinnacle Peak offers a supportive and intensive 30 to 45-day primary treatment program for those who are unable to commit to our extended care treatment. This provides all our clients with the essential tools they need to begin their road to recovery and a life free of addiction.

Extended Care Treatment

Research states the greatest chance of success in treating a substance use disorder happens when clients attend an extended care program. Our unique extended care treatment program offers 45-day, 60-day, and 90+-day treatment opportunities. We have these options to not only address the challenges of reentering society, but to also ensure our clients are better equipped to live a healthy life of sustained recovery and happiness. In addition to clinical offerings, we provide an integrated approach to recovery that allows the client to develop a healthy and productive life.

Outpatient Treatment

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is offered for clients who live in the Scottsdale area and may not require (or desire) the clinical intensity of extended care treatment. IOP clients receive all the benefits of our integrated approach to recovery.

Alumnus Services

Transitioning from treatment into a life of continued recovery is a critical time. Our professionals continue to support our clients and their families throughout this transition process. Some clients who complete the extended care treatment program choose to stay in the Scottsdale area due to the relationships and support they build with our wonderful community. These clients often transition into the IOP program, allowing them to continue receiving support from their therapists during this critical time. We also offer weekly recovery meetings for our alumni living in the Scottsdale community.

Family and Loved Ones

We recognize that addiction is a disease that’s devastating both to the afflicted and to the people who love them most. Our therapists are committed to working with families and loved ones to help them understand addiction, develop new skills to re-build healthy relationships, and to support their loved-one in healthy ways as they transition into their new life full of hope.
