At Sierra Tucson, we recognize the importance of incorporating a variety of different treatment modalities into the care we offer so that each need of our residents is sure to be met. In order to accomplish this, our skilled staff offer a blend of evidenced-based practices and integrative therapies so that residents experience cutting-edge therapeutic interventions that increase the likelihood of better treatment outcomes.

Sierra Tucson’s professional and caring staff develops individualized treatment plans, which will delineate treatment plan goals and the different types of treatment modalities and specific therapies that a resident will engage in during his or her time at Sierra Tucson in order to meet those goals.

Integrative Therapies

In conjunction with these evidence-based treatment protocols, residents will also benefit from integrative therapies, therapeutic recreational activities, experiential therapies, and a number of additional services, all of which will be tailored to meet each resident;s unique needs and skills set. By combining these different types of therapies, residents are afforded the opportunity to achieve a holistic, well-rounded, positive sense of self and all-encompassing wellness – physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
