What is “rehab”?
Addiction rehab includes structured treatment programs that focus  on helping addicts form healthy habits to change their lifestyles for the better.

What happens when I’m in rehab? 
Our treatment programs are structured to meet the needs of each individual client so not one experience at Fountain Hills Recovery is identical to another.  However, a basic overview of what your rehab experience could look like would include detox (getting rid of the toxins on your body from drugs or alcohol), therapy (choosing from individual, group, or alternative therapies available), and finally aftercare (making arrangements for what the client will do after the treatment program to prevent relapse).

How long should I stay in rehab?
The length of treatment will depend on a variety of factors including the severity of addiction, co-occurring medical conditions, and the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the individual seeking treatment. Our center offers multiple length-of-stay options so you can find the program that meets your needs.

Will treatment “cure” my addiction? 
Frankly, there is no “cure” for addiction. Our treatment programs focus on building healthy habits by giving you the tools and resources you need to manage your addiction effectively. Recovery does not end when your treatment program concludes, it requires ongoing dedication for a lifetime of sobriety.

What will happen if I relapse? 
A relapse is not the end of your recovery journey. Think of a relapse as hurdle to overcome in your race to a life of sobriety. We can help you gain the skills necessary to help manage your addiction, but it is up to you to conquer the obstacles you encounter and not lose your motivation when you stumble or have a momentary lapse of judgement.

How do I know if a loved one is suffering from addiction? 
Changes in behavior, hygiene, energy levels, mood, appetite, and sleep patterns can occur when someone is addicted to a substance. If alcohol/drug use has had a negative effect on their social or professional lives, this can be a sign of a serious problem. A hallmark of addiction is when the person in question has attempted to stop using on their own and failed to for whatever reason. If you or a loved one are unable to stop using on your own seek help immediately or call: (800) 715-2004.
