Outpatient Rehab Program in Arizona

As the fastest-growing state in the country, Arizona’s population is diverse and so are the people seeking addiction treatment.

Outpatient Treatment at Pinnacle Peak Recovery

We all need help at some point. No matter the reason, it’s perfectly fine to reach out for a hand that can guide us to our desired destination.

If you or someone you know is battling addiction, we understand just how hard that can be to handle alone. In fact, here at Pinnacle Peak Recovery in Scottsdale, Arizona, we don’t think anyone should have to address their addiction by themself.

In the 2018 survey, 9.52% of Arizona residents reported using illicit drugs in the past month, nearly 1% higher than the national average

Arizona currently ranks in the top 20 in the United States when it comes to problems with drugs, and 21st in the country when it comes to excessive alcohol use.

While inpatient treatment is typically recommended for those with severe addiction, outpatient treatment is available for people who have either completed an inpatient program or those who, for any reason, simply can’t stay at a treatment facility.

Outpatient treatment can give the person battling addiction the ability to maintain a balanced work and family life all while getting the help they need.

Here at Pinnacle Peak Recovery, we can help those who have:

  • Alcohol addiction
  • Adderall addiction
  • Benzodiazepine addiction
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Heroin addiction
  • Meth addiction
  • Ketamine addiction
  • Hallucinogen addiction

We understand there are many treatment facilities to choose from should you decide to seek help. At our facility, we are confident in the work we do, and we have seen, first-hand, just how effective our programs are. Each person who walks through our doors is unique, which is why they deserve a treatment plan that is tailored to their exact needs.

With decades of combined substance use treatment experience, our staff knows that typical treatment programs are not the way for clients to overcome addiction. Everyone has a unique set of struggles and needs. This requires a different combination of therapies and methods to achieve full recovery.


Intensive Outpatient Program for Addiction

Each of our clients will be assessed by our team upon entering the program. This will include discussing things like medical history, family history, past trauma, psychological situation, and treatment history. This helps in creating a unique treatment plan.

Remember, people battling addiction are never alone. Whether it’s you or a loved one who needs assistance, do not hesitate to reach out. We’re here for you.

What Is Inpatient Treatment Like, and How Does It Compare to Outpatient?

At Pinnacle Peak Recovery, we offer both inpatient and outpatient rehab programs. So what is the difference between inpatient vs outpatient?  Inpatient treatment is typically recommended for those with severe forms of addiction. However, outpatient treatment is still an effective solution for those who simply cannot afford to leave their family or job.

Here at Pinnacle Peak Recovery, we offer a setting designed to provide education, skills training, and comprehensive therapy for people who are struggling with drug or alcohol use. When it comes to inpatient treatment, clients usually stay at the rehab facility 24/7. Those who seek outpatient treatment options will still receive evidence-based treatments, but will be able to commute.

If you decide to pursue inpatient treatment, our facility is in a resort-like setting with luxury extras, scenic views, access to fitness classes, and adventure opportunities. We also value your privacy and confidentiality. We believe that getting treatment shouldn’t be something you are ashamed of.

Inpatient treatment also offers a structured environment to those who need it most. In turn, this will allow those who stay with us the opportunity to learn how to rebuild their lives free from any distractions.

If there are too many distractions in someone’s life, or they’ve tried an outpatient treatment program before but couldn’t find success with it, an inpatient program might be helpful.

Treatment Tailored to Men and Women

At Pinnacle Peak Recovery, we know how substance use affects men and women differently, and that the most effective methods of recovery are different. This is why we offer specialized treatments depending on the gender of the client.

We offer specialized treatment for men who are seeking to break free from the grasp of addiction. In order to allow men to be more open and vulnerable with therapists and their treatment group, they will be limited in their interaction with women to completely focus on treatment. By working strictly with other men, clients can focus on any issues that are affecting them on their road to recovery.

Similarly, Pinnacle Peak Recovery offers treatment programs created for women because women also benefit more from individualized care that meets their specific needs during treatment. Women typically make more progress toward recovery when they can get away from the stressors of everyday life.

Therapies Offered at Pinnacle Peak

We offer therapies that have been proven to work here at Pinnacle Peak, including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy.

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by helping clients learn how to change their thinking patterns and balance their feelings to produce positive behaviors rather than destructive ones. Individuals will learn how to anticipate things that could trigger their thoughts and break learned behavior patterns.

Dialectical behavior therapy focuses on both acceptance and change to help redirect learned behaviors when emotions and stressful situations are present. This form of therapy is used in both one-on-one and group environments, which allows those present to share their improvements and offer support to each other.

Learning how to manage addiction is a crucial part of the recovery process. By learning tactics and techniques to fight the urges to drink and/or use drugs, the chances of lifelong recovery improve.

Choosing an Outpatient Rehab Center

The road to recovery starts with you yourself, but a proper treatment center can guide you as you make the journey.

There are many stories about people attending a treatment facility and having a bad experience, whether that was due to not finding success or something else. However, it is possible to find a treatment facility that works for you.

Here are a few questions to ask when choosing a treatment center:

  • Will they use treatments tailored to an individual’s background?
  • Do they use evidence-based treatments?
  • Will insurance cover treatment costs?
  • Do they offer various therapies, including individual counseling, experiential therapy, and holistic therapy?
  • What is the success rate of the treatment facility?
  • Where is the treatment facility located?
  • Should I travel for treatment?
  • What extras do they provide to make the treatment experience more enjoyable?

No matter the question, Pinnacle Peak Recovery representatives will do their best to provide the answers. Our staff is dedicated to making sure all of the information needed is available for those prepared to take the first big step toward sobriety.

Signs of Addiction

The first step on the road to recovery is realizing that you might have an addiction to something. The signs of addiction can be different for everyone.

It’s important to take a step back and gauge whether you or a loved one is battling addiction because the earlier it’s treated, the better.

Signs of addiction can include:

  • Wanting to get sober but being unable to
  • Strong cravings for drugs or alcohol
  • Withdrawal symptoms when drugs or alcohol aren’t being used
  • Mood swings
  • Spending large amounts of time alone
  • Losing interest in activities that were once enjoyed
  • Irregular sleeping patterns
  • Problems at work or school
  • Problems with friends or family
  • Eating more or less than usual
  • Poor hygiene (lack of cleanliness)

What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ”Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD) and can help some people to sustain recovery.”

The following medications are currently approved by the FDA for MAT:

  • Naloxone (Evzio, Narcan)
  • Naltrexone (Revia, Vivitrol)
  • Buprenorphine (Belbuca, Buprenex, Butrans, Suboxone, Subutex)

An MAT program can be used to treat addiction to:

  • Heroin
  • Fentanyl
  • Codeine
  • Hydrocodone
  • Vicodin
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone
  • Carfentanil

Opioids help in eliminating the body’s perception of pain. However, they can also have negative impacts on other systems of the body, including altering mood, slowing breathing, and causing constipation.

MAT works by acting on the same targets in the brain as heroin and morphine.

Medications such as buprenorphine suppress withdrawal symptoms and relieve cravings. Naltrexone blocks the effects of opioids in the brain. Naltrexone is only used in clients who have already been through detox.

A Look at Co-Occurring Disorders

Having co-occurring disorders means having both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder at the same time. Over the years, it’s become clear that co-occurring disorders are common for those battling a substance use disorder.

The National Institutes of Health says, “Researchers have found that about half of individuals who experience a substance use disorder during their lives will also experience a co-occurring mental disorder and vice versa. Co-occurring disorders can include anxiety disorders, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and schizophrenia, among others.”

Just because you may have co-occurring disorders doesn’t necessarily mean one caused the other, but they can.

Sometimes, there are common risk factors that affect both substance use disorders and mental health disorders. Since both disorders can be passed down from generation to generation, genetics may play a role.

There’s also the possibility that your mental health disorder contributed to your substance use disorder. For example, those with a mental health disorder may turn to substances to escape whatever problem(s) they're dealing with. This can include things like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

On the other hand, a substance use disorder could contribute to mental health disorders. Some substances can cause changes within the brain that may cause you to develop a mental health disorder.

Is Now the Time to Seek Treatment?

Knowing when to seek treatment is one of the most important parts of the recovery process. Drugs and/or alcohol don‘t have to control you or a loved one.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, if you just can’t seem to shake the cravings, if it’s affecting your work and/or family life, Pinnacle Peak Recovery can help.

No one should have to walk the road to recovery alone. There is no shame in asking for help. In fact, it takes strength to admit you can’t do something alone. Tomorrow could be the beginning of a new chapter—a chapter free from the hold of addiction.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are co-occurring disorders?

Having co-occurring disorders means having both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder at the same time. These are actually common but often aren’t found until a person enters treatment. The National Institutes of Health explains, “Researchers have found that about half of individuals who experience a substance use disorder during their lives will also experience a co-occurring mental disorder and vice versa. Co-occurring disorders can include anxiety disorders, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and schizophrenia, among others.”

How do I know if I have an addiction?

Everyone is different, which is why signs of addiction are different for everyone. According to the National Institutes of Health, “People with addiction lose control over their actions. They crave and seek out drugs, alcohol, or other substances no matter what the cost—even at the risk of damaging friendships, hurting family, or losing jobs.” 

What are the differences between outpatient and inpatient treatment programs?

Outpatient treatment is available for people who have either completed an inpatient program or those who, for any reason, simply can’t stay at a treatment facility. This form of treatment can also give the person battling addiction the ability to maintain a balanced work and family life all while getting the help they need. Inpatient programs are typically recommended for those with severe forms of addiction and those who would benefit from a structured environment. Inpatient treatment does require a residential stay, but it provides around-the-clock care.
