Comprehensive Care

 At Sierra Tucson, our goal is to provide you with comprehensive services before, during, and after your stay.

As described above, our London-based clinical liaison is available for both phone and in-person consultations. In addition to determining if Sierra Tucson is the right fit for you, our representatives can answer all of your questions about residential treatment, and will ensure that you are fully prepared for a successful treatment experience.

Following completion of your residential programme, we will work with you and your UK-based general practitioner, consultant, and psychotherapist to facilitate a successful transition back home. Our clinical liaison can help set up continuing care services for you, and can meet with you to help implement your continuing care plan.

Also, a variety of groups, workshops, and London-based alumni gatherings can support your long-term recovery and help you stay connected with the Sierra Tucson family.

Family Programme

The Family Programme at Sierra Tucson is designed to create a recovery foundation for you and your family or significant others, aged 18 and over. Participation in this programme is included in the cost of the resident’s treatment; however, travel and accommodations to Family Week are not included.

  • This programme aims to expand self-awareness and knowledge of family dynamics, as well as increase communication skills.
  • Invited family members are introduced to a variety of self-care tools and various resources for continuing care.
