CODAC: Behavioral Health Services Outpatient Review

CODAC Behavioral Health Services has been providing treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders for residents in Pima County, Arizona since 1981. With a comprehensive system that includes detox, outpatient services for adults and adolescents and residential services for pregnant women, CODAC encompasses a wide spectrum of treatment options in multiple locations.

Treatment and Staff

CODAC offers two methods of outpatient detox for opiates from its clinic on Fort Lowell Road in Tucson. Clients receive either methadone or Suboxone and must agree to group therapy while detoxing.

CODAC’s Adult Outpatient Services are offered out of its Alvernon location. The 16-week co-ed Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for adults 18 and older. Clients meet for group therapy three days a week and once a week for individual therapy for a total of nine hours. Clients with co-occurring disorders are assigned to groups specific to their issues. All sessions are 60 minutes and topics include addiction studies, anxiety management, coping skills, communication skills, dealing with depression and recognizing triggers.

CODAC’s Men’s Recovery Services provides outpatient treatment for men with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Clients in this group meet for an assessment and a program schedule is outlined from that point. Clients are re-assessed weekly to ensure progress and, if needed, additional sessions are added. Group topics include anger management, relapse prevention, healthy relationships and sexuality, recognizing triggers, anxiety and depression strategies, coping skills and gender and communication.

Therapeutic techniques in all programs include MET, CBT and trauma-informed care. The CODAC staff consists of Master’s-level therapists with degrees in psychology and addiction studies. In addition, people in need of medication management see a psychiatrist.

Step Forward is the adolescent treatment division of CODAC’s outpatient services, treating clients between the ages of 12 and 17 out of their Broadway location. There are two outpatient programs that meet after school for 12 weeks. The Substance Use Disorder Program is for those struggling strictly with substance abuse. It meets twice a week for two-hour sessions. Using MET and CBT, a combination of individual, group and family therapy sessions are offered. Group topics include peer pressure, family systems, addiction studies, emotional and physical health, skills development, communication groups, healthy decision making and peer pressure.

The Co-Occurring Disorder Program is for young people experiencing substance abuse and mental health issues. This intensive outpatient program meets nine hours per week and includes group, individual and family counseling. Group topics include anxiety and depression, anger management, peer pressure, family dynamics, addiction and mental health, goals group and peer talkback sessions.

The Step Forward treatment team is made up of Master’s-level therapists with a focus in mental health, substance abuse, family dynamics and child adolescent development.


CODAC hosts aftercare meetings based on the SMART Recovery model for adolescents who have completed outpatient treatment.

Parents are encouraged to attend individual counseling along with weekly family group sessions in the adolescent program.

In Summary

Organizations like CODAC Behavioral Health always have potential because they provide the full continuum of care, from detox to outpatient services. Clients looking for non 12-step specialized care and dual diagnosis support in Tucson would be wise to consider CODAC Behavioral Health Services.
