Horizon Health and Wellness is a residential substance abuse facility, providing inpatient and outpatient treatment in Arizona. Services are provided in Pinal, Gila and Yuma Counties. Transitional housing services are available in Cochise, La Paz, Maricopa and Santa Cruz Counties. All clients are encouraged to sign up for AHCCCS, the state-provided health insurance provider, which allows treatment to be of no charge to the client.
Accommodations and Food
The substance abuse treatment program accommodates 10 clients in one co-ed residential location. Two or three clients stay in gender-specific rooms, sleeping in bunk beds. Home-cooked meals and snacks are provided, and no outside food or beverages are allowed on-site. Clients are required to attend the gym three times a week, and smoking and electronic devices are not allowed.
Treatment and Staff
Clients are admitted after a thorough assessment during which individualized treatment plans are created with the assistance of a psychiatrist, doctor and case worker. Inpatient treatment ranges from 30, 60, 90 to 120 days. Horizon specializes in treating clients who require dual diagnosis support and offers medication management as well as daily doctor visits and individual therapy. Detox is not provided, and clients need at least 72-hours free of substances before admission.
Group therapy is held throughout the day, and clients are also required to attend 12-step meetings. Some are held on-site, while others are in the surrounding community. Clients are transported to and from the off-site meetings. The evidence-based program is used to help clients identify the causes and conditions that led to their addictive behavior, and then give them tools to overcome these habits. Modalities include CBT and DBT. They aim to replace dysfunctional behaviors with new, healthy ones, helping re-establish clients among their family and community. Treatment goals are frequently reviewed with the assistance of their case manager, and clients participate in the creation and discussion of them.
Upon completing the inpatient program, clients step down into outpatient treatment. The various stages last four, 12 and 16 weeks. The intensity and frequency of treatment during these phases is discussed with the client’s case manager. Group and family therapy is the focus during this time, as is consistent participation in 12-step programs.
Family therapy and aftercare are offered as part of the continuum of care, and clients also benefit from a variety of community resources to help reintegrate them. Educational and workplace services are offered.
Clients may be provided referrals to safe and affordable transitional housing that is operated by Horizon on the completion of one of the programs. These homes are monitored and supervised by a licensed staff, and an expectation of continued sobriety is maintained. Residents may stay for a minimum of six months.
Horizon also operates a DUI program, which focuses on treatment and education. This program meets the mandated 16-hour treatment minimum and provides services to assist those that have had their license revoked.
Horizon Health and Wellness provides a strong basis for recovery for those with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders disorders. The small residential facility means residents benefit from more personalized treatment, while the length of treatment offers a greater chance of maintaining long-term sobriety. The various phases of outpatient treatment also mean that clients will not be left without support once released from residential care. This facility does not accept self-pay, and clients without insurance must be part of AHCCCS. This program means that all treatment will be of no cost to those in need. However, spaces are limited, and bed are awarded based on the severity of the applicant’s condition.
