Facility Highlights

  • 12 Step AND Non 12 Step Options
  • Holistic Treatment Options
  • Gender Specific Residences


  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term "medical detoxification" means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person's unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., Illuminate Recovery and Wellness Centers is an organization that operates several facilities in Scottsdale and Phoenix that each offers a full continuum of inpatient and outpatient treatment programs for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders.

Illuminate Recovery's outpatient offerings include partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP), services offered by 11.1 and 48.4 percent of rehabs in Arizona, respectively. The organization also offers aftercare services. In addition, Illuminate Recovery partners with local treatment providers to facilitate medical detoxification, if necessary, and sober living housing.


Before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial substance misuse and mental health assessment to help clinicians form an individualized treatment program. If a client requires a heightened level of care, the individual may be referred to the facility's partial hospitalization program (PHP). Clinicians may also recommend that the clients reside in a sober living facility. According to the facility's website, Illuminate Recovery offers comprehensive 28-, 60-, and 90-day PHP options.

Illuminate Recovery's programming blends evidence-based treatments with a range of holistic treatment methods. During PHP, clients participate in individual and group counseling sessions that utilize a variety of modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), the latter of which is offered at 62.5 percent of rehabs in Arizona.

These modalities are designed to identify the underlying factors that may contribute to addiction and modify behavior. To accommodate personal preferences, Illuminate Recovery offers both 12-step and non-12-step treatment tracks.

To treat dually diagnosed clients, Illuminate Recovery offers eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients overcome past traumatic events. In addition to evidence-based treatments, clients also participate in a range of holistic treatments, which includes art and music therapy, equine therapy, therapeutic recreation, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling.

While IOP offers similar programming, clients meet less frequently than in PHP. In some cases, alumni of PHP may utilize IOP as a step-down aftercare service. However, Illuminate Recovery also offers other aftercare services for up to six months, which include referrals to recovery housing, recovery coaching, and access to the treatment provider's alumni community, among others.


Illuminate Recovery employs a multidisciplinary team of masters-level substance abuse counselors and treatment technicians. Holistic services may be provided by specialists, while clients with co-occurring disorders may meet with consulting mental health professionals. According to the facility's website, the facility offers a staff-to-client ratio of 1:6.


The two alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date gave mixed feedback. Alum J. praised the facility, writing, "This was my 6th attempt at treatment for my drug addiction, and I cannot thank these guys enough for all they did for me." In an anonymous review, the other alum complained that the treatment was ineffective and too expensive.

Reviews on secondary review sites were more positive. On Google, 13 reviewers all gave perfect five-star reviews.[1] On the facility's Facebook page, which staff may manage, seven reviewers also all gave five-star ratings.[2] Most of these reviewers praised the staff and treatment effectiveness. "The staff made themselves available to provide genuine support and guidance for all their clients," alum Bliss wrote in a representative review on Facebook.


While Rehabs.com has yet to receive feedback from loved ones, five friends and family of alumni across Google and Facebook all gave positive five-star reviews. All five praised the treatment effectiveness for their loved ones. "My son is currently in sober living with 11 months clean," Mark wrote in a representative review on Google.


Illuminate Recovery and Wellness Centers accepts most private PPO health insurance plans, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, Aetna, and United Healthcare. According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 64.5 percent of rehabs in Arizona accept private insurance.
