  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Individual Therapy

    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

  • David Sanchez
    David SanchezExecutive Director, RN
    David is the founder and Executive Director of Life Transformation Recovery. His involvement in the recovery community began through his work as a registered nurse at a psychiatric hospital where patients were frequently detoxed from drugs and alcohol. Later when he worked in the Emergency Department, addicts would often go to the hospital asking for help, and he noticed the need for a Christian support system in Prescott, Arizona. Along with several friends, David helped start a faith-based addiction recovery meeting in Prescott in 2012. This eventually gave way to establishing Life Transformation Recovery.
  • Renee Weyts
    Renee WeytsLPC, LISAC
    Renee grew up in a difficult home environment. Her parents were divorced when she was eight years old. At the age of sixteen she started using drugs and alcohol to seek relief from her emotional pain. After living in addiction for five years she fell on her knees and cried out to God in a desperate prayer. She became a Christian that day and her life began to miraculously change. As the years progressed she began to develop a desire to share God's love and healing power with hurting people. For this reason she decided to pursue an education to become a Professional Counselor. Renee has over twenty years of experience in the counseling field. She has worked in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings providing both mental health and substance abuse counseling.

Life Transformation Recovery, located in Prescott, Ariz. offers long-term, faith-based residential treatment for men, as well as outpatient treatment services for men and women. It is also one of the just 37 (10.3 percent) treatment facilities in the state with detoxification services available on-site. The facility is a non-profit organization that encourages individuals to grow in their faith as they also grow in their sobriety.


If needed, clients begin treatment with detoxification. The detox process consists of three main areas of focus including evaluation, stabilization, and transition into treatment. Detox typically lasts 3-5 days.

The men’s residential program typically lasts six to 12 months, although an accelerated program is available that lasts between one and three months. Each client receives an individual treatment plan developed by the doctors, nurses, counselors, and other treatment staff.

Overall, the residential program entails three phases. During the early stages of the program, clients participate in Bible studies, attend three church services per week, engage in individual and group counseling, and partake in an exercise regimen. During the second phase of treatment, the facility offers integrated family counseling. Secondary-source reviewers also indicated that the facility utilizes the 12-step model of recovery.

After clients have stabilized and become more accustomed to the program, they take place in skill-building services such as pre-job training and financial planning classes, as well as various team building activities. Once they complete their pre-job training course, clients are encouraged to either find work or attend school part time while they continue their treatment.

Outpatient options are co-ed and include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which runs Monday through Friday and includes substance abuse counseling and regular drug testing. The intensive outpatient program (IOP) includes three or more days per week of counseling depending on client need and typically lasts 90 days.

The key focus of outpatient programs is identifying relapse triggers and developing relapse prevention strategies. Once clients complete the IOP, they may step down into the less-restrictive outpatient program, which includes counseling two to three times per week, as well as drug testing.

An aftercare program is available to all clients who complete outpatient treatment and lasts from three to six months. Clients begin by attending weekly counseling. Sessions gradually become more infrequent until clients attend just once per month.


Life Transformation Recovery's treatment team includes doctors, nurses, counselors, and behavioral health technicians. There is a staff-to-client ratio of 1:2. In Arizona, 99.7 percent of all substance abuse treatment facilities have continuing education requirements for staff.


The men’s residential program is intimate, offering just eight beds, while the average number of clients in a residential treatment facility was 18 individuals, as of 2016. There is currently no other information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements, residents regularly participate in a range of outdoor recreational activities.
