Can You Go to Rehab on Probation in Arizona?

Yes is the short answer here, whether in Arizona or another state. While it is true that every case is unique, it is almost always possible to go to rehab on probation. Not only can you go to rehab while on probation, but addiction treatment can be life-changing for people on probation or in any sort of legal trouble related to drug abuse.

Why? Seeking treatment will help you address the underlying cause of legal issues related to drug addiction so that you can move forward and avoid future legal consequences.

Sometimes in Arizona, substance abuse treatment is even required for those who engage in a drug-related crime. If drug court requires that you attend treatment, it’s called court-ordered rehab.

A re-offender may have a more challenging time avoiding incarceration or jail time than a first-time offender. It also depends on the specific details of the crime committed. However, if you can access addiction treatment, it’s worth it.

6 Well-Known Benefits of Attending Treatment During Probation

Probation Officer Support You to Enter a Rehab Program

A probation officer will nearly always support your choice to enter a rehab program while on probation. Just like we realize at Purpose, they know that someone seeking recovery and trying to better their lives is much more likely to successfully complete probation than someone who is not.

With that in mind, here are some of the benefits of going to rehab while on probation.

1) Staying Sober During Probation

One of the primary benefits of going to a rehab center for drug-related offenses is that it can help you stay sober during probation.

While you might get away with one (or even two) dirty urine results, continuing to fail drug tests during probation can have serious consequences, such as serving out the rest of your sentence in its entirety.

At Purpose, our rehabilitation programs provide a strong support system and expert clinicians dedicated to helping people overcome drug and alcohol dependence. It simply makes sense that people who get some form of help for addiction are more likely to remain substance-free.

2) Support for Clients With Pending Legal Issues

Our Arizona treatment facilities in Scottsdale and our facility located in Phoenix offer support for clients with pending legal issues. Purpose Healing Center is well-versed in working with clients in court-ordered treatment or who are navigating drug-related crimes committed due to addiction.

If you attend Purpose Healing Center while on probation or need help navigating legal issues, we can assign you to an on-site case manager as part of your treatment plan.

3) Sober Housing, Employment, and Education Help

An ideal addiction treatment program will help you create a sustainable life that you love, a life with purpose. As you can tell by our name, this is a core part of the mission at our Arizona treatment facilities, and we will walk with you throughout early recovery.

We can also help you navigate employment and education planning and can connect you with resources like sober housing. These services are vital and play a critical role in lasting sobriety for many people.

4) Communication and Interpersonal Skills

Substance abuse can affect the relationships you have with other people—for example, family members, romantic partners, and close friends.

In addition to group therapy, individual mental health counseling, life skills, and other treatments, addiction treatment can help you learn skills necessary for healthy relationships. 

5) Comprehensive Mental Health Treatment

It’s estimated that more than one in four people with a serious mental illness also meet the criteria for a substance use disorder.

If you have a co-occurring mental or behavioral health condition, our dual-diagnosis rehab program can help.

Our dual diagnosis programs address addiction and co-occurring disorders comprehensively for the best treatment outcomes.

6) Relapse Prevention and Aftercare Planning

Relapse Prevention and Aftercare Planning

Relapse prevention is a vital part of helping clients achieve ongoing sobriety. Before you graduate from one of the programs at our treatment center, we’ll help you make a customized relapse prevention and aftercare plan.

Aftercare plans are always unique to the individual but may include services like ongoing therapy, medication management, or staying connected to the support system you built while attending drug rehab services through an alumni program.

The alumni program at Purpose Healing Center lets you stay in touch with your team once you’ve completed treatment so that you can continue receiving recovery support.

What Kind of Treatment Program is Right for Me?

Purpose Healing Center’s full continuum of care allows us to help people with all levels of addiction or substance abuse issues. Treatment options at Purpose Healing Center include inpatient rehab, outpatient programs, and detoxification.

Some people start with a higher level of care, like inpatient rehab, and step down to an outpatient program as they make treatment progress. Others are able or prefer to start with an outpatient program.

Before you start treatment at Purpose Healing Center, we’ll give you an intake assessment and discuss your treatment options with you.

Does Insurance Cover Attending Rehab on Probation in AZ?

In many cases, health insurance is the only way someone is able to attend rehab. We understand that rehab can be expensive without insurance, and take pride in the fact that Purpose is accessible through a wide range of insurance carriers.

This is why Purpose Healing Center accepts many major health insurance plans as an in-network provider, including nearly all forms of Arizona Medicaid (AHCCCS and AIHP).
