Therefore, a multidisciplinary team of professional, highly-skilled staff utilize a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to create individualized treatment plans that address the whole person. Medical and psychiatric services combine with Twelve-Step philosophy and a full range of traditional and experiential therapies, including EMDR, Equine-Assisted Therapy, and Adventure Therapy. Integrative therapies such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Qigong, Reiki, Shiatsu, Somatic Experiencing®, Yoga, and Zero Balancing enhance the treatment process.

Family Program

The Family Program is a hallmark of Sierra Tucson's successful treatment. This dynamic four-day Family Program is included with each person's treatment to enhance long-term recovery and extend healing to the family. Invited family members are given the opportunity to participate in therapy, face their own issues, and work toward resolution. Young people begin to understand and emotionally process the turmoil they have experienced and learn new life skills. A Couple’s Workshop gives couples in the Family Program an opportunity to receive educational and therapeutic support for recovery. After this educational, healing experience, the family is uniquely prepared for new growth and healthy support of the primary patient’s recovery process.

12 Step Involvement

The 12-Step philosophy is utilized as a basis for the treatment programs at Sierra Tucson, and individuals are encouraged to use the 12-Step principles in their recovery. Twelve-Step meetings are held on campus, and patients may attend off-campus meetings, as well.
