In June of 2019, the Commonwealth Fund’s Scorecard on State Health System Performance released a 2019 report that looked at “deaths of despair”, or deaths caused by drug overdoses, alcohol, and suicide. The report found from 2005 to 2017, the death rate in Arizona caused by drug overdoses increased 57 percent. And when looking at deaths caused by alcohol for that same time period, the rate had increased 43 percent. In other words, 22.2 out of 100,000 Arizona residents died from a drug overdose and 16.2 out of 100,000 Arizona residents died from an alcohol overdose in 2017. For families, that meant losing a loved one too soon, struggling with their loved one’s outstanding financial debts and trying to pick up the pieces and returning to a life of normalcy without a key family member or friend.

The Arizona Department of Health Services tracks state-wide opioid data in real-time to see how opioid addiction, specifically, has affected the state’s communities. From June 15, 2017, to December 5, 2019, there have been 30,178 suspected opioid overdoses and 1,764 cases of neonatal abstinence syndrome.

At Fountain Hills Recovery, the mission is to provide compassionate and effective addiction treatment that helps families like yours find lasting recovery. 

  1. Family Therapy. We work with you to help your family overcome the pain and damage addiction has caused. We then work with both you and your loved one together to help rebuild your relationship and heal the family system.
  2. Evidence-Based Approach to Treatment. We leverage therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), group talk therapy, EMDR and many more that are proven to help people overcome addiction and dual diagnosis disorders.
  3. Highly Personalized. While millions of people struggle with addiction, your situation is still unique to you. There are underlying causes for your loved one’s substance abuse and there is pain and trauma that needs to be addressed. When your loved one comes to treatment, we take the time to get to know your loved one and family, allowing us to create a personalized effective treatment plan.
  4. Holistic Healing. Sometimes, people need more than individual and group therapy to really heal from addiction. Your loved one will participate in yoga, equine therapy, music therapy and other holistic treatments that help heal the mind, body, and spirit after addiction. These holistic therapies can give your loved one a new outlook on life that they can then take with them when they return to you after treatment.

This personalized and holistic approach can help your loved one find lasting recovery and bring some much-needed relief and healing to your family.
