A Better Today Recovery Services


A Bettery Day Recovery FINALThe Basics

A Better Today Recovery Services is a substance abuse treatment facility in Scottsdale, Arizona that first opened its doors in 2009. ABTRS offers inpatient treatment in luxury residential homes that are monitored 24/7, as well as an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). ABTRS is a 12-step based program and transportation is provided to AA/NA meetings. ABTRS offers CBT, detox and dual-diagnosis services.

Accommodations and Food

ABTRS runs five houses which range in size from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet. Each house has four bedrooms with two clients per room and up to three bathrooms (depending on the property.) There are only a total of seven private rooms among the five properties. Each resident receives his or her own drawers and closet space as well as towels and linens. All of the homes have a formal dining room, family room, free washers and dryers, cable TV and free local and long-distance calling. Each house has its own backyard area with a pool and some of the houses also come with a covered patio accessorized with an outdoor TV, ping pong tables and gas grills for barbecuing.

All meals are provided but clients are responsible for their own snacks. Trips to Walmart happen once a week so residents can stock up. House members can anticipate home cooked breakfast and dinner but are expected to take care of lunch themselves, usually deli sandwiches or leftovers.

Treatment and Staff

Entry to residential treatment at ABTRS first requires a stay at the ABTRS stabilization house where prospective residents are monitored by a staff nurse while undergoing detox. From there, clients move into one of the houses and a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), where they work with a therapist daily and a life coach once a week. Following that, residential group and individual therapy occurs Monday through Friday for a total of four hours daily. Although attendance is not required, many clients attend the North Scottsdale Fellowship Club for off-site AA/NA meetings.

ABTRS also offers its evening IOP, which clients attend one to three nights per week for group and may also request to have individual sessions. Clients may choose to attend the evening IOP, while staying in a local sober living house with which ABTRS collaborates. There are also alumni meetings provided as a form of aftercare.

ABTRS has a psychologist on staff, as well as a medical doctor who specializes in addiction, an art therapist, a Master’s-level therapist and three LADCs.


Specialized treatment methods at ABTRS include EMDR for those dealing with trauma issues as well as music and art therapy, strength training, yoga and even equine therapy.

In Summary

A Better Today Recovery Services is a well-rounded rehab facility with a variety of treatment modalities at its disposal. It has over six years of experience and boasts a well-established partnership with sober living houses. Although the cost for inpatient treatment falls within the range of an economical rehab, it should be noted there is a minimum 45-day stay for residential services. ABTRS does accept insurance and the facility director sets a flexible price for outpatient services according to the number of times that a client wishes to attend per week.

  1. Not a professional business. Staff was disrespectful towards clients. I am 57 years old and easy going; but staff hollered at me twice because they were in bad moods. Clients spoke with prejudicial remarks and staff did not say a word yet small rules were strictly enforced. Made me say what is important here. God was disrespected in the Lords prayer and staff again said nothing.
    We had to cook our own meals. Apartments not cleaned well in between clients. Carpets nasty. TV only in community room. I left after 47 days and since it was not the length they wanted me to stay, accommodations were not made for me to go to the airport. I had to walk down to the corner and catch a cab in the dark because they wouldn’t give me the address of the quarters for the cab I was paying for to pick me up.

  2. your only in the houses for a few days till they ship you off to apartments and you are responsible for cooking everything no meals were cooked by staff the whole time I was there you just grab what you can when you can this review is completely off base with this place sorry to say. there was one tv for the entire apartment complex this was such a horrible experience
