Rehabs 360 Guide


Pathfinders Recovery Center is a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program with multiple locations in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Lakewood, Colo. Building off more than 25 years of experience, the center makes use of supervised medical detox and holistic, evidence-based programs that range in length from 30 days up to an entire year.


Treatment begins with an initial screening and, where necessary, medically monitored detox to alleviate any withdrawal symptoms. Programming is geared towards treating individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Following their initial assessment and detox, clients then move on to tracks of 30, 60, 90 days, or one that goes six months to a year. Programs help clients overcome their issues by combining therapeutic individual and group therapy, medication, and training in skills development. Longer stays offer opportunity to learn skills in budgeting and financial management, and for career readiness and GED prep courses.

Program graduates are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings and find a local support group.


Pathfinders is led by two clinical directors - a licensed marriage and family therapist and a certified addiction counselor - and has multiple primary therapists on staff.


The facility is situated in a residential area of Colorado and has a maximum capacity of 12. Residents are expected to keep their space clean, though further details on the facility’s living arrangements and related offering are not provided.
