Arizona is a pristine state with strong Native American connections, but despite its beauty, much like every state in the U.S., Arizona is impacted heavily by addiction to drugs or alcohol. Finding the best inpatient rehab in Arizona can be hard—there are many places and options to choose from. You’ll find different residential rehab options in locations such as Phoenix, Tucson, and Bisbee, but how do you CHOOSE the best program?

What is Inpatient Addiction Treatment in Arizona Like?
Getting help in Arizona at a rehab center that provides around-the-clock care focused on your needs is tough, but not impossible. A lack of resources is the leading cause for trouble in finding care that meets you or your loved one’s needs. Many state programs that provide inpatient rehab are overflowed with need and underfunded. Budgets are tight and there’s often little left to offer cutting edge, therapeutic care to those in vital need.
Treatment, at any inpatient rehab center, generally goes something like this:
- You call a helpline for assistance in finding a residential rehab center.
- You are assessed during intake and an evaluation is conducted in order to define your unique treatment needs.
- A case coordinator is assigned to ensure that you get the best possible care for you.
- If you’re addiction is paired with a strong instance of withdrawal, you’ll move into a medical detox facility in order to be properly monitored for your safety and for the safety of others.
- After a week, or more, in detox, you will begin to receive psychological counseling and therapy.
- Meals, housing, and other necessities are provided while you are in a residential rehab.
- You can have friends or family visit after a period of time has elapsed during which the treatment staff have come to learn your needs and feel safe that allowing visits will not hinder your recovery progress.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab in AZ
Deciding between inpatient rehab in Arizona or the many outpatient care options can be challenging. At first, you may feel pulled towards outpatient care because it is more affordable, or because maybe your insurance requires a trial run in outpatient care FIRST before you can try inpatient treatment.
However, studies show that residential rehab provides you with the best possible chance for long-term recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol. If you’re not sure whether you should choose inpatient or outpatient care, consider the following:
- Inpatient treatment is ideal for the hardest to treat addictions including heroin addiction and alcoholism.
- Outpatient rehab is generally acceptable IF you already completed a residential program.
- Inpatient rehab provides you with a safe place to live away from drugs or alcohol which reduces your risk of relapse.
- Outpatient rehab allows you to continue with work, school or home responsibilities so if you’re a primary caretaker, this option “could” be acceptable, but the lenience will require that you have a VERY strong support network at home.
If you need help deciding, call our helpline anytime. We’re here to make your decision to seek professional rehab easier on you so you can focus on what matters most—getting yourself well!
How Long Does Inpatient Drug or Alcohol Rehab Take?
Inpatient rehab for an addiction to drugs or alcohol generally takes a minimum of 30 days. SAMHSA recommends 90 days or more of total treatment in order to change behavioral processes so that you are not at risk of relapse. Remember also that the time spent in detox does NOT apply to treatment total time because everyone requires a slightly different detoxification process.
The following concerns arise when it comes to determining appropriate rehab length:
- Your age.
- Whether you have been in rehab before.
- Whether you have been addicted for a very long time.
- What drug you are addicted to.
- How many times you have tried to quit.
- Whether you have underlying health conditions such as dual-diagnosis or similar problems.
Don’t compare your treatment to that of someone else. Remember that we are all different, and therefore the amount of time each of us will need in an AZ rehab center will vary depending on very unique, and individual needs.
How Can I Pay for Drug or Alcohol Rehab in Arizona?
Many options exist to help you pay for treatment of a substance abuse disorder. The most common include:
- Health insurance which often covers 80% or more of the total cost of rehab.
- Help from family and friends who are often more willing to pay for treatment than to continue to fuel your addiction.
- Sliding-fee rehab centers that operate on a basis that bills you based on your ability to pay for care.
- Loans including medical care loans and direct financial aid from rehab centers.
- Free or low cost programs that are operated by the government or local state funding.
Never let your fear of paying for inpatient rehab prevent you from making the call for help—there’s always a way to get you into a treatment program that can assist you at a rate that is affordable to you and your family.
