Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment Centers in Arizona

You might be surprised to learn you are not alone in battling substance abuse in Phoenix and the surrounding areas. According to surveys from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, it was discovered that 16 percent of people in this area try an illicit drug each year.

This is just slightly below the statistic for the state as a whole (16.9 percent) but higher than what is considered standard for the United States nationally (14.7 percent).

Because substance abuse can be found in the sunny state of Arizona, as anywhere else, it is important to land in a thriving community built on the principles of sobriety. Here are a few of the reasons you might consider an Arizona drug and alcohol rehab like Purpose inpatient or outpatient programs.

Recovery Meetings for Unstructured Time

One of the most challenging aspects of recovery is what you should do with your unstructured time. Some research concludes that the most challenging parts of the day are those when you have no demands on your time. Instead, you should seek to fill these idle hours with helpful activities like a recovery meeting.

No matter what time of day is most tempting for you to turn to substances, you can find a recovery meeting that is available to support you.

In the Phoenix and Scottsdale area, there are hundreds of AA meetings where you can connect with others who face similar struggles with drug and alcohol addiction. This can be great when you are discharged from our luxury rehab center programs in Arizona but aren’t ready to return to life without the support of others who understand.

Sober Activities for Free Time in Phoenix and Scottsdale

When you step down from an inpatient to an intensive outpatient program, you will have more time on your hands to explore the Arizona area. Fortunately, there are tons of sober living activities to explore with friends, family, or even on your own when in early addiction recovery.

If you have some free time after graduating from our inpatient rehab or during an intensive outpatient program, you will need activities that occupy you. Explore the best that these cities have to offer. These places can take you away from reminders of substance use and keep you occupied.

Phoenix and Scottsdale Museums for Cultural Immersion

Many people who are going through our treatment programs at Purpose Healing want to find a way to explore the culture of the local area in their free time. One of the best ways to do this is through the museums in each city. Both Phoenix and Scottsdale have beautiful museums where you can take in their galleries.

Whether you want an afternoon stroll through the air-conditioned exhibits or an evening tour, the Phoenix Art Museum and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art have lots to offer. Each location has some evening hours, allowing you to fill time that might have previously been devoted to drug and alcohol misuse.

Admission is affordable, and you may even find free events at these locations during certain times of the month.

This watering hole is excellent for swimming and fishing, as well as other water activities like skiing. You can even scuba dive in this natural body of water to see the ghost town just beneath the surface.

When the water doesn’t call to you, there is still plenty of space to explore in Canyon Lake. You will find dinosaur fossils and footprints that have been perfectly preserved over the centuries.

Plus, Canyon Lake is home to a wide variety of wildlife that you can take in: foxes, roadrunners, and even lots of birds who come to Arizona during the winter season. It is a peaceful place to seek a little introspection when not actively involved in your addiction treatment plan.
