Blueprints for Recovery

225 Grove Ave, Prescott, Arizona, 86301
At Blueprints for Recovery, we realize that young adult addicts suffer from a complex of issues that all need to be treated. There is depression, dysthymia, lack of motivation, lack of spiritual connection, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, trauma and affect dysregulation, inability to feel a part of or to be an integral member of a group, a deficiency in life skills and communication skills, as well as the near constant belief that drugs or alcohol can satisfy these disparities. We treat all of these over an extended period of time, giving the addict the best possible chance at a lifetime of recovery.

Facility Highlights

  • Relapse Prevention Program
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Anger Management


  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
