Virtue Recovery Center Offering Residential Rehab in Arizona
Virtue Recovery Center Offering Residential Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Arizona
Completing a residential treatment program is one of the best ways to achieve long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. These treatment programs, available throughout Arizona, typically last at least 30 days, giving patients plenty of time to withdraw from substances and improve their mental health.
In Arizona, alcohol is the primary substance involved in more than half of all admissions to addiction treatment programs. Arizona residents also tend to use methamphetamine and heroin at higher rates than residents of many other states. Between 2004 and 2014, Arizona was one of the top five states in terms of increased admissions for heroin addiction. Patients are also admitted to treatment programs for addictions to cocaine, fentanyl and prescription drugs.

The Impact of Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Addiction takes a toll on your body and mind, and it can also damage your relationships with loved ones. The physical effects depend on what substances you use, how often you use them and whether you take more than one substance at a time. Chronic alcohol use may cause scarring of the liver, abnormal heart rhythms, high blood pressure and problems with the heart muscle. Alcoholism has also been linked to an increased risk of stroke and certain types of cancer.
Even if you never overdose on a drug, you can still develop serious heart problems or suffer damage to your vital organs, causing kidney failure, cancer, hormone imbalances, seizures and other serious medical problems. The risk of harm increases if you take multiple drugs or combine drugs with alcohol.
Alcohol and drug use can also cause serious changes in your behavior because of the effects they have on the brain. Alcohol, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and other substances all affect the way the brain communicates with other parts of the body. As a result, you may experience mood swings, high levels of anger and irritability or a loss of interest in social activities.
Personalized Substance Abuse Treatment Programs
Virtue Recovery Center focuses on developing customized treatment plans for drug addiction and alcohol addiction. To ensure every patient receives personalized treatment, we limit the number of patients admitted to our residential drug and alcohol rehab center at any given time.
Patients from all over Arizona, including Chandler, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson and Flagstaff, come to Virtue Recovery Center for intensive addiction treatment that reduces the risk of relapse.

Paying for Drug Addiction or Alcohol Addiction Treatment
The cost of residential addiction treatment usually depends on the severity of the addiction. If you have an addiction to multiple substances, or if you have any co-occurring mental health disorders, you’ll likely need to stay longer than someone with an addiction to a single substance.
Virtue Recovery Center works to make addiction treatment as affordable as possible for patients from all financial backgrounds. If you have private insurance coverage, one of our admissions counselors will verify your insurance benefits before you arrive, ensuring you know what’s covered and what’s not. We work with many major insurance carriers, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna and UnitedHealthcare.
If you don’t have health insurance, you may be able to take out a personal loan or use your credit card to cover the cost of inpatient rehab. Although residential substance abuse treatment costs more than outpatient rehab and other treatment options, it also has the highest success rate. Your recovery is well worth the investment in residential drug addiction treatment or treatment for alcoholism.
Substance Abuse Treatment in Arizona
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration collects data regarding rehab admissions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In 2014, alcohol was the primary substance of abuse for adolescents and adults admitted to substance abuse treatment facilities in Arizona, accounting for about 40% of admissions.
Methamphetamine/amphetamines accounted for more drug rehab admissions than any other illicit substance, edging out marijuana, heroin and cocaine. In 2014, more than 22,000 people were admitted to Arizona drug and alcohol rehab centers. Out of those 22,000, nearly 4,500 admissions involved methamphetamine/amphetamines as the primary drug of abuse.
Unfortunately, many people in Arizona struggle with substance abuse and never receive the treatment they need. Due to a lack of addiction treatment, just over 1,900 people died of a drug overdose in Arizona in 2019. Virtue Recovery Center is here to help you get the addiction treatment you need in a supportive, homelike environment.
Residential Addiction Treatment for Adults
Virtue Recovery Center offers residential addiction treatment, which differs slightly from inpatient drug rehab or alcohol rehab. If you’re admitted to inpatient drug rehab, you’ll receive addiction treatment in a hospital.
Many people are intimidated by hospitals and don’t feel comfortable discussing their addictions in such a clinical environment. At Virtue Recovery Center, you stay in a homelike environment with comfortable furniture and a wide variety of amenities. This residential atmosphere makes it easier to open up about your mental health and heal from any trauma contributing to your substance abuse.
You’ll also have access to a variety of treatment methods, including medication-assisted treatment, individual therapy, group therapy and medical detoxification. Instead of delivering a one-size-fits-all treatment plan to every patient, we offer a customized treatment program based on your physical and mental health needs.
Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders
Many people who struggle with alcohol or drug abuse also have depression, PTSD, anxiety and other mental health disorders. When one of these disorders occurs along with some type of addiction, it’s known as a co-occurring disorder.
If you have co-occurring disorders, we’ll customize your treatment program to include medication, therapy and other professional recovery services appropriate for your situation. For example, we offer EMDR therapy for patients with PTSD and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for people with severe depression that hasn’t responded to other treatment methods.
The medical professionals at our Arizona rehab center have extensive experience helping first responders and members of the military heal from service-related trauma. If you experienced a traumatic event while serving in a branch of the Armed Forces, we can help you process your feelings about the event and learn how to live in the moment.
Medically Assisted Detox
If you have a severe drug addiction or chronic alcohol use disorder, you may need to complete medical detox before you can begin residential addiction treatment at our Arizona rehab. Virtue Recovery Center is one of the best treatment centers in the state because we offer supervised detox to keep you safe as you eliminate drugs and alcohol from your system.
During medical detox, a team of treatment professionals is on hand to monitor your vital signs and determine if you need medication to help manage your withdrawal symptoms. Your treatment team may include an addiction specialist, a therapist and a medical doctor.
Therapy to Treat Addiction
Intensive outpatient programs and partial hospitalization programs can be helpful, but residential rehabilitation is usually one of the most successful treatment approaches. When you stay in a residential treatment center instead of receiving outpatient care, you have the opportunity to follow a structured program in a supportive environment.
You’ll meet other people struggling with substance abuse issues and learn from their experiences as you work toward your own recovery, improving your chances of success. Virtue Recovery Center offers several types of therapy to help you on your recovery journey.
Individual therapy is one of the most effective treatment options for patients with substance use issues. In one-on-one sessions with an experienced therapist, you’ll be able to explore the underlying causes of your substance use disorder. Your therapist will also help you change your negative thought patterns, giving you a new outlook that can help you abstain from drug and alcohol use when you finish your treatment program.
A drug or alcohol use disorder can damage your relationships with family members by changing the way you behave. People who struggle with drug or alcohol abuse often experience sudden mood changes or have trouble controlling their tempers. Addiction also causes some people to feel ashamed of their behavior, leading them to avoid family members in favor of spending time alone.
When you stay at our luxury rehab facility, you’ll have the opportunity to invite approved family members to attend therapy sessions with you. A trained therapist will act as a facilitator, helping you work through your family issues without resorting to personal attacks against each other. Your therapist can help you understand how your behavior has affected your parents, siblings, spouse or children, making it possible to mend broken relationships and strengthen your personal support system.
Group therapy is an important aspect of our Arizona rehab program. While individual therapy gives you an opportunity to work through your personal issues, group therapy gives you the chance to connect with other people who understand what you’re going through. Listening to and learning from others can help you achieve lasting recovery and reduce your risk of relapse.
At our Arizona rehab center, we also use EMDR therapy to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. During an EMDR session, you and your therapist will focus on helping your brain heal from past trauma.
Although EMDR is a type of psychotherapy, it’s different from behavioral therapies that focus on changing your behavior or replacing negative thought patterns with positive ones. The main goal of EMDR therapy is to prevent the fight, flight or freeze response from occurring when you think about a distressing event.
Treatment for Severe Depression
Some people struggling with substance addiction also have severe depression that doesn’t respond to other medications. If you want to achieve lasting addiction recovery, you need to address your depression while you’re getting help for your substance use.
Unlike many treatment centers, Virtue Recovery Centers offers transcranial magnetic stimulation to patients with treatment-resistant depression. During a TMS session, a treatment professional places a magnetic coil on your head. The device sends magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain, improving your mood and helping you manage other symptoms of depression.
TMS is an excellent alternative to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), which requires the patient to be sedated and may cause confusion, memory problems, increased heart rate and other worrisome side effects. In contrast, TMS is noninvasive and requires no sedation.
A Holistic Approach to Recovery
Virtue Recovery Center takes a holistic approach to treating substance use disorder, meaning you’ll get the support you need to manage your withdrawal symptoms, improve your mental well-being and learn how to cope with challenging circumstances without resorting to drug or alcohol use.
At our Arizona rehab facility, we offer gourmet meals prepared by a chef who specializes in meeting the nutritional needs of people struggling with substance use disorders. Our treatment facility also offers regular opportunities for meditation and physical exercise. As your behavioral health improves, so will your physical health, giving you the strength you need to abstain from alcohol, prescription drugs and illicit substances.
When you’re ready to leave our Arizona rehab center, we’ll provide ongoing support to reduce your risk of relapse and make sure you have the tools you need to continue your recovery. You’ll be able to attend 12-step support groups, get help with any legal issues stemming from your addiction and request referrals for outpatient rehab services.
Finding Accredited Addiction Treatment Centers
If you’re ready to seek treatment, it’s important to look for an accredited addiction treatment center. Each accrediting body ensures that a drug rehab or alcohol rehab follows strict guidelines for quality care, giving you extra peace of mind. Virtue Recovery Center is accredited by the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers and the Joint Commission, both of which have exceptionally high standards.
