Located in Prescott, Arizona, Arrowhead Lodge is a residential treatment program dedicated to men over the age of 30. Founded in 2008 by Kenneth Chance, author and the creator of the Arrowhead Lodge Model, the program is inspired by Chance’s personal experiences with substance abuse and a co-occurring disorder. It uses both evidence-based and holistic methods to treat alcohol, drug and sex and love addictions. The programs include psychoeducation, individualized care and an introduction to the 12 steps.
Accommodations and Food
The Arrowhead Lodge treatment facility is situated in the Rocky Mountain pines of Prescott National Forest. It can accommodate a maximum of eight clients at a time in double-occupancy rooms; furnished with full or twin beds, dressers, a small desk, lounge chair and some storage space. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and provide a quiet place to unwind at the end of the day.
The large lodge-style home features luxurious amenities, such as leather couches, a huge stone fireplace and a wrap-around deck. The media room has a huge flat screen TV mounted on the wall and a ping-pong table. Residents collaborate to cook meals that are designed by a nutritionist who specializes in healing through food. All meals are healthy and hearty; made from only the freshest ingredients.
Treatment and Staff
The individualized treatment programs offer group therapy, educational lectures and classes throughout the day. Individual sessions are scheduled as needed. Treatment begins with a stabilization period that lasts 45 days. If detox is needed, clients are referred to a nearby facility and provided with transportation back to Arrowhead. The stabilization period aims to address any physical and mental issues that may prevent clients from moving forward in treatment. The second phase is another 45-day period dedicated to action. The focus is on mental and emotional health issues including trauma, grief, loss, shame, guilt, professional boundaries and cross addictions, such as sex addiction. Clients are encouraged to talk about and resolve issues they may have never talked about before.
Treatment is client-centered; focusing on self-care, coping skills and relapse prevention techniques. Depending on the client’s specific needs, therapists use CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and/or EMDR, as well as holistic methods like mindfulness and meditation. While the program isn’t exclusively based on the 12-step philosophy, there are AA and NA meetings each week that clients can attend off-site.
The staff of Arrowhead includes an MD, a psychiatrist and Master’s-level therapists.
As aftercare, or the third phase of treatment, Arrowhead Lodge recommends structured living for an additional three to six months and it runs an executive sober living home in Prescott as well. For clients who are unable to stay local, referrals are offered to select transitional care homes throughout the country.
Arrowhead Lodge also has an intensive family program for partners and children who are 16 years and older. This three-day retreat includes counseling and educational lectures.
Arrowhead Lodge offers a perfect retreat for men who are struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. The serene location and highly-trained staff help residents feel comfortable and encourage them to open up and resolve long-buried issues. For adult men who are looking for a long-term program in a beautiful location without distractions of city life, Arrowhead Lodge is a great choice.
