Facility Highlights

  • Comprehensive Treatment Services
  • Detoxification to Transitional Living
  • Person Centered Treatment Approach


  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
  • 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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Founded in 1980 and located on a sprawling campus in the Hot Springs National Park,in Arizona, Quapaw House (QH) offers medically-assisted treatment (MAT) using Suboxone, medical detox, residential treatment, intensive outpatient (IOP), partial hospitalization (PHP), outpatient services, and sober living services to adults and adolescents seeking treatment for substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders. Mental health evaluations are available on-site, and the center can provide legal advocacy if required.


Treatment at Quapaw House begins with a needs assessment given by medical personnel. Clients in need of medical treatment or detox are enrolled in the detox program. Detox usually lasts up to five days. Clients are then enrolled in other services.

Clients who do not need medical detox can be enrolled in an observational detox program to determine their specific needs. Quapaw House is a part of the 9.3 percent of treatment facilities in Arkansas that offer detox services on site.

Treatment consists of counseling combined with medication management and recreational therapy. Physical therapy, fitness, and education courses are also made available in treatment programs. Evidence-based modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) alongside 12-step participation and individual, group, and family therapy are common parts of treatment plans.

In Arkansas, 72 percent of facilities in Arkansas use the 12-Step program. After the first 10 days, attendance at off-site 12-step meetings is mandatory.

Residential stays last between 14 and 180 days, and the average day includes six hours of group and individual counseling, meetings, and lectures. Adult educational services are available for those who wish to improve their literacy or obtain their GED. Other classes provided cover HIV, parenting, life skills, and relapse prevention planning.

Adolescent residential treatment uses the Matrix Model and emphasizes family participation and anger management. Within the state, 64.4 percent of treatment facilities in Arkansas use the Matrix Model.

Outpatient options include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), general outpatient care, and aftercare. Outpatient care offers the same modalities as inpatient programming but tends to emphasize peer support and self-help.

Family participation is encouraged throughout treatment. Families can participate in counseling and educational groups. Family members are also invited to seminars and lectures by recovery partner groups to help rebuild clients’ support networks.


The treatment staff at Quapaw House includes physicians, registered nurses, licensed therapists, and certified alcohol and drug counselors. An on-site physician and registered nurse can attend to minor medical needs. The staff also includes licensed therapists and certified alcohol and drug counselors. To date, the five individuals polled by Rehabs.com on the matter gave mixed opinions concerning the staff.

Another reviewer also noted that no mental health treatment was provided. Additionally, all three reviewers gave the center just one out of five stars for its holistic options.

Fees are determined on a sliding scale based on family size and income, but affordable care is one of QHI’s founding principles. The facility accepts private insurance and is in-network with Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and QualChoice. Financial assistance packages for uninsured or underinsured clients may cover up to the full cost of treatment.

Suboxone treatment costs $500 for an initial appointment, followed by $100 for each monthly appointment thereafter. To date, the five individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com were generally critical of the facility's cost.
