What Makes Horizon Recovery Different

The Real-World Impact of Horizon Recovery


Horizon Recovery is more than a treatment center. It’s a sanctuary where adolescents can find a haven from their pressures and struggles. At our teen residential treatment center, they develop the skills, understanding, and self-confidence needed to navigate their way toward a healthier, happier future.

We emphasize more than just clinical therapy. We provide a variety of alternative and complementary therapies, in conjunction with traditional evidence based therapy, that can be customized to each individual’s needs. We strive to provide a variety of forms of therapy to provide a multi-targeted and comprehensive healing enviornment.

Our evidence-based therapies have effectively addressed mental health and addiction issues. The real-world impact of our unique approach is apparent in the positive transformations we witness in our adolescents — the smiles, the renewed hope, and the reclaimed lives.

A Nurturing Environment for
Growth and Stability


A supportive environment plays an integral role in the recovery process. That’s why we’ve created a nurturing, distraction-free space where adolescents can focus on healing. The residential nature of our program ensures they are continually supported, fostering a sense of safety and belonging.

What Makes Our Centers Different

Staffing Levels

While the Arizona Department of Health mandates only one staff member on-site at all times, we consider this inadequate. Relying on one staff member to serve 10 adolescents is not just ineffective; it’s also a safety concern. We’ve proactively chosen to staff our facilities at higher levels to ensure effective and safe treatment for every resident. During the day, we consistently maintain a staffing ratio of 5-6 staff members, and there are never fewer than 2 staff members on-site overnight.

Comprehensive Services

Our approach to treatment is founded on a robust, evidence-based program. We firmly believe that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Each adolescent responds uniquely to various therapeutic techniques and methods. By offering an extensive array of evidence-based tools, our highly skilled clinicians can tailor an individualized treatment program to best suit each resident.

Family Involvement

We commit to fully engaging the family unit in every aspect of our therapeutic programs. We go the extra mile to support families right from their initial contact with us. Small gestures, such as a comprehensive welcome packet that explains what to expect during residential treatment, go a long way in making families feel at ease. Moreover, as a pioneering step in our industry, we’ve introduced the concept of a single point of contact for the family: a Family Liaison (click here for more on the Family Liaison role) whose responsibility is to proactively communicate with families daily as their loved ones progress through treatment.

Culture and Values

We place a strong emphasis on hiring staff based not solely on their past experience but on their personal qualities. Our staff members have daily interactions with your adolescents, and we believe that the best way to deliver world-class treatment is by selecting individuals who embody our company’s values. We actively seek out individuals who are genuinely compassionate, caring, and patient. While we can teach someone to provide top-tier therapy, we can’t instill integrity and compassion, which are integral to our team.

Supporting Our Staff

It’s no secret that labor costs are a significant expense for any company. Nevertheless, we take great pride in compensating our staff with pay and benefits that rank among the industry’s highest. We acknowledge that our staff are the ones delivering treatment to your loved ones. We are committed to recruiting and retaining the highest-caliber individuals to ensure that our program consistently delivers excellent services. We promise never to compromise the quality of care at the expense of the dedicated staff who provide the crucial treatment your loved ones need.

Yes, we believe that family involvement is crucial to a successful treatment outcome. That’s why we include family therapy sessions in our treatment plans.

What age group does Horizon Recovery cater to?

We are only licensed to provide care through age 17 at our inpatient facilities, but we can continue to provide care to adolescents after they turn 18 through our outpatient treatment centers, which include our PHP, IOP, and standard outpatient services.

How does life skills training contribute to mental health?

Life skills training contributes to mental health by providing adolescents with tools to navigate challenges, make wise decisions, and build healthy relationships. This, in turn, promotes overall well-being and resilience.
