Decades of Experience
In December 2013, Sierra Tucson celebrated 30 years of providing world-class residential treatment. On the personal level, Sierra Tucson’s staff is made up of highly experienced men and women who have dedicated their lives to helping others. In the ever-evolving field of behavioral and mental health, Sierra Tucson is a place of consistency and stability.
The Sierra Tucson Model®
In the decades since Sierra Tucson opened, we’ve had tremendous opportunities to document the most effective treatment methods and hone our programs accordingly. The result of this effort is The Sierra Tucson Model, an innovative integrated approach to treatment that emphasizes strong diagnostics, evidence-based techniques, and holistic patient-focused care.
High Referral Rate
Eighty-seven percent of Sierra Tucson patients were referred to us by other professionals or by members of our alumni family. In other words, those who know us best – on both a personal and a professional level – are proud to recommend us to their friends, family members, and patients. We are happy to put you in touch with one of our alumni, who can answer your questions and give you a first-person account of life at Sierra Tucson.
Strong Medical Component
Our unparalleled treatment is provided by a team of experienced psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, naturopathic physicians, pain management physician, and nurses. Unlike programs that contract with local physicians to provide limited on-site consultations, Sierra Tucson features a team of full-time, on-staff doctors whose sole focus is providing world-class treatment to our patients.
When you enter treatment at Sierra Tucson, you will never be “just another patient.” The moment you walk through our front door, you become an active participant in your own treatment. You will collaborate with your treatment team of experienced masters and PhD level clinicians and other providers to develop and complete a personalized plan that has been customized to meet your unique needs – and you will make important contributions to the direction and progress of your treatment.
This unique program adds an additional 12 months of individual support to the treatment experience, helping patients continue and expand the progress they made while at Sierra Tucson. The program provides long-term support for both the patient and the patient’s family, allowing them both to continue to heal.
Extensive Family Support
Our Family Program is an essential component of The Sierra Tucson Model. Because family members and significant others are considerably affected by addiction and mental health disorders, their involvement is critical to the recovery process. Family week is often a life-changing time when relationships can begin to mend from confusion, hurt, and misunderstandings.
