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.

Our Treatment Modalities

Evidence-based treatment interventions are those that are based on sound, scientific evidence. The evidence has shown, in a systematic way that these therapies are successful. The different types of evidence-based treatment modalities that are incorporated into the care offered at Sierra Tucson include:

  • Equine Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Medically Assisted Treatment
  • Nutritional Therapy
  • Psychodrama
  • Continuing Care
  • 12-Step Facilitation
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)

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 their 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.

After several facilities failed, Sierra Tucson’s program saved my daughter’s life. The Family Program saved our family and helped the recovery of all.
