About Sierra Tucson

Ranked #1 in Newsweek’s list of Best Addiction Treatment Centers in Arizona for 2023!

Sierra Tucson, in Tucson, Arizona, has placed an emphasis on resident-focused treatment for over 33 years with world-class continuing care. Through our Sierra Tucson Model®, we have been able to provide strong medical assistance as well as a complete mind, body, spirit, and emotional renewal by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable doctors and physicians. Every treatment we offer is shaped by our model and catered to each patient’s needs.

Placing an importance on family throughout the recovery process, Sierra Tucson encourages family involvement during the patient’s treatment. Family members are allowed and encouraged to participate in activities that build back bonds between members. Being able to collaborate with family members throughout the process ultimately helps heal broken relationships caused by the initial addiction. It not only helps the patient feel unconditional support, but it also helps the family members understand the recovery process and feel more involved in healing their loved one.

Known for a place of consistency, stability, and effectiveness, a majority of Sierra Tucson’s residents have been referred by professionals and past alumni who are more than willing to recommend the facility’s treatment to heal another’s life.

Being a patient of Sierra Tucson, you will learn how to discover the underlying causes of your emotions and behavioral patterns that affect your everyday life. Sierra Tucson’s therapies provide insight to identifying core issues and identifying the best ways to overcome them.

I would recommend this facility to anyone in need of treatment, it truly changed and saved my life. The level of care is spectacular, the staff is extremely helpful and will work with you to individualize your treatment, the therapists and doctors were fantastic, and the food was really great. The community feeling there was so positive and uplifting, the facility grounds are beautiful as well. I went there in 2017 and still look back at my experience there with nothing but gratitude and joy.

I went to Sierra Tucson in 2009. It was the best experience I have ever had. I loved the staff, the residents and the therapists. They all contributed to a deep change in me. I gained a lot of insight and was able to let go of 17 years of resentment and anger. The after care for the Alumni is great.

Therese M.

What I appreciated most about going was the community support I experienced. The benefit of community support made me feel like I was never alone as people were empathic, rooting me on as I recovered from my emotional instability. Also helpful was the definitive amount of time I was given to improve, offering me a light at the end of the tunnel, something concrete to work towards. I don't expect to return, but if I ever needed to, I would feel right at home at Sierra Tucson.

The staff makes or breaks your experience. My staff from the housekeeping to the Dr’s was 5 star. Empathy is the best way to describe the experience. We come in broken and they know that we leave a little less broken. I am so happy to have gone here. Recommend highly.

I went to Sierra Tucson about a year ago, and it truly saved my life. Amazing staff, great food, tons of wonderful people I met and am still friends with, and my therapist Carly was SO WONDERFUL. So blessed. Ps... it’s a beautiful place. Sunsets are the most beautiful
