ABOUT CANYON VISTA RECOVERY CENTER
Located in the residential Phoenix suburb of Mesa, Ariz., Canyon Vista Recovery Center (formerly Women in New Recovery) offers long-term residential treatment to adult women struggling with substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders. It's among the 48.1 percent of treatment facilities in Arizona to offer programming specially tailored to women.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Canyon Vista generally last between two and 11 months. The facility is one of 67 residential treatment facilities in Arizona (19.6 percent of treatment facilities in the state) to offer programming that lasts longer than 30 days.
A typical day begins with an off-site 12-step meeting, followed by therapy and process groups on topics including self-esteem, grief, and trauma. In 2017, less than half (42.8 percent) of Arizona treatment facilities treated clients who have experienced trauma.
Treatment also includes individual therapy, a weekly family healing group, relapse prevention training, and life-skills work. There are also advanced therapies such as vibroacoustic therapy, alpha-stim treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and others.
Upon completion, all clients are connected to an alumni support network. The facility’s website states that an alum who relapses in her first year after treatment may re-enter the program free of charge for one month.
The staff at Canyon Vista includes a licensed independent substance abuse counselor, behavioral health technicians, a grief recovery specialist, a naturopathic medical doctor, a master’s-level group facilitator, and a yoga instructor. Many staff members are themselves in recovery.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Clients live in seven homes located on the facility’s campus. There are laundry facilities, a garden, and outdoor lounges on-site. A therapy dog also lives at the facility.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The majority of former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com (seven out of 11) gave Canyon Vista negative feedback. They reported that the rehab was more like a halfway house than a treatment center, and lacked trained staff and therapy programs. "No on site licensed counselors. All treatment done via AA mtgs and sponsors. Too many clients in too little space. Very overpriced for the facility not actually providing any treatment," J.W. wrote in a representative review.
Canyon Vista faired a bit better on secondary sites, earning an average rating of 3.9 out of five stars based on 20 Google reviews, and a 4.7 out of five star rating based on the opinions of 48 individuals on Facebook, which the staff may manage. Across both sites, the majority alumni who left comments reported that the treatment was effective. "WINR was my safe bubble I can not thank them enough for showing me another way of living and teaching me to be a productive member of society," Summer wrote in a representative review.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The majority of loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date (four out of five) gave Canyon Vista positive feedback. They reported that the program was a help to their family member and that they were included in treatment activities. "I was able to attend a family group each week where I learned so many valuable skills. I learned to interact with my daughter in a whole new healthy way. They saved my daughter's life," Katy wrote in a representative review.
According to Canyon Vista’s website, most private insurance plans are accepted, and payment plans are available for uninsured clients.
