Canyon Vista Recovery Center

Canyon Vista Recovery Center Mesa Arizona

At Women In New Recovery (WINR), women are given the opportunity to engage in treatment for alcohol and drug abuse in a single-gender environment. This type of treatment setting has been proven to reduce the chances of relapse and increase the probability of long-term sobriety. Using a combination of evidenced-based treatment, 20-plus years of experience, and holistic therapies, WINR provides clients with comprehensive addiction treatment in a safe and supportive setting. Upon completion of the program, alumni have numerous opportunities to stay involved and are provided with continuing care support for at least one year.

ABOUT CANYON VISTA RECOVERY CENTER

Located in the residential Phoenix suburb of Mesa, Ariz., the nonprofit Canyon Vista Recovery Center (formerly Women in New Recovery) offers long-term residential care, transitional programming, and sober-living facilities for adult women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Medical detox is not available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment programs generally last between two and 11 months. A typical day begins with an off-site 12-step meeting, followed by therapy and process groups on topics including trauma, self-esteem, and grief. Afternoon programming consists of physical or holistic activities, such as yoga, dance, working out at the gym, neurofeedback therapy, or drum circle. Evening programming ends with another 12-step meeting and house-facilitated meeting.

Treatment also includes individual therapy, a weekly family healing group, relapse prevention training, and life-skills work, including nutrition planning and budgeting. The sole alum polled on the amount of group counseling offered at
Canyon Vista Recovery Center indicated that they attended group therapy four times per day. They also indicated that they received adequate medical care while in treatment.

Treatment also includes advanced therapies such as vibroacoustic therapy, alpha-stim treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and others.

Upon completion, all clients are connected to an alumni support network. The facility’s website states that an alum who relapses in her first year after treatment may re-enter the program free of charge for one month.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The staff at Canyon Vista includes a licensed independent substance abuse counselor, two behavioral health technicians, a grief recovery specialist, a naturopathic medical doctor, a master’s level group facilitator, and a yoga instructor. Many staff members are themselves in recovery. The three individuals polled on the staff’s level of training and experience provided mixed feedback, offering a one-, a three-, and a maximum five-star rating.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The two alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com to date gave mixed reviews. Alum J.W. provided only two out of five stars for exercise and leisure provisions, holistic treatment options, and the efficacy of treatment for co-occurring disorders. They also provided two out of five stars when asked if they would recommend the facility, and wrote “Too many clients in too little space. Very overpriced for the facility not actually providing any treatment.”

As for strengths, however, J.W. did rate the treatment effectiveness, connectivity/visitor policy, and quality of family programming four out of five stars.

Alum D.K. felt very positively about the facility. They gave maximum five-star ratings for the respect shown toward clients, the staff’s level of training, the connectivity/visitor policy, the level of staff support, and the quality of holistic treatment options. “This program saved my life,” D.K. wrote, “I began to think I would never get better. I never knew the type of life I could have until I got better here.” D.K. also indicated that marketing materials were accurately reflective of the treatment they received while at Canyon Vista Recovery Center.

Reviews on third-party sites were similarly mixed, with an average 3.3 out of five stars from nine Google reviews at the time of this writing. [1] Positive reviewers praised the educational treatment that bettered their behaviors, although negative reviews accused the facility of being money-oriented. Reviewer Amanda wrote: “The classes are insightful, educational and intriguing and really help us to understand ourselves.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The two loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com to date gave Canyon Vista polarized reviews. One anonymous reviewer gave the facility one out of five stars in most categories, including staff’s level of training and experience, and accommodations and amenities. “Lack of caring, a scam to get people’s money,” the anonymous loved one wrote, “nothing offered to handle depression, co occuring addictions… please don’t use this place.”

The other loved one however, whole heartedly recommended the facility. “This facility is a life experience to attend to. It fixes you, and leads you on the right path,” the reviewer wrote. They gave Canyon Vista a five out of five star rating when asked if they would recommend the facility.

  • This place guided me back to the authentic person that I was before my addiction took over my life! The classes and Therapies gave me the tools I needed to keep the freedom, integrity and peace that I have today! I am forever grateful!
    These reviews are a load of doggy refuse (sorry Lily - awesome therapy dog) But the accomodations were not as good as a homeless shelter, policies were enforced by staff prejudice

  • I stayed at WINR September 3-October 4, 2009. I am grateful for the fellowship of the women to help me build a firm foundation and to learn respect for others and myself. I have 8 years clean and am a productive member of society. Thank you

  • My parents sent my to a WINR home is scottsdale when I was 19. Worst possible place to send me. It wasn't anything near as nice as the pics shown on the site. They were not supportive of my then unknown mental disorder and kicked me out on the street simply because I did not get along with the other girls...From what I recall their whole system is based on tattling on each other. Not for drug abuse, but every stupod thing you can possibly imagine. Like getting out of bed five minutes late. And any of these little things was just one more level to booting you out. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. And no one there cared or helped. Surrounding someone who needs help with nothing but screwed up people to monitor and tattle on them is no way to run a rehab. Do not go or send your family here. You are wasting your time.
    A year after I attended WINR, I recieved a bill from a toxicology lab in Texas for $24,000 for drug screens I recieved at WINR, to the tune of $2,100 PER SCREEN. When I called WINR for help, their response was to offer to show me the fine print on a paper I signed ...upon arrival. Do not send yourself here.
    WINR, has been the best recovery for my daughter. She was very sick and needed a lot of help, love and direction. Her doctor's told me to plan her funeral because they didn't think she would make it. At that point I call WINR and told them my daughter situation. We lived 15 hours away from where WINR was, but God made sure we found away to get her to WINR. She was there for seven months and learned a great deal about how to live,love and laugh again. There counselor was the best we could have ever asked for her. The owner show the girls a lot of successful direction to live again, not to be codependent. They teach the twelve step program along with meditation, and prayer. This is exactly what my daughter needed to get sober and stay alive. On May 17th she graduated and not is in there sober living program. WINR gave my daughter hope, life and her family back. My daughter is now happy and uses her tools everyday when needed. I want to thank WINR owe the owner and her staff for everything they have done to help Chelsea and other women in this situation. I also want to than my daughter for listening and opening up to get the help she needed. I would highly suggest anybody with a friend, sister daughter or mother to call WINR so they can get the help they need.
    10 yrs ago my precious daughter was in the throes of Meth addiction. She had tried a 30 day program with no luck. On May 19,2006 she courageously left Texas and went to WINR. WINR not only saved her life, but gave her life back to her! She has never look back. Never stumped her toe, which is pretty fantastic if you look at the stats. She has a great career and is living the dream. Thank you Jesus and thank you WINR!

  • Very Structured. Clients are held accountable at all times. Very strict. it is not a treatment center. It is a halfway house. No on site licensed counselors. All treatment done via AA mtgs and sponsors. Too many clients in too little space. Very overpriced for the facility not actually providing any treatment WINR claimed to have a fairly high relapse prevention rate comparatively on their website. Upon arriving to the program from out of state, I was shocked that it wasn't a treatment center and had no licensed staff our counselors on site, as it's website eluded to. Instead each woman was responsible for paying almost 800 a month. No food provided. Spent endless hours on chores and finding jobs, in order to pay rent, and each resident had to attend an aa or an meeting daily. There was no counseling to speak of, unless each woman went out and found counssling and treatment on their own.

  • I attended the WINR and kids program (which they currently do not have, but I wish they did). It definitely saved my life. I learned so many life skills that I use every day. I had been using drugs for many years and lost all of my kids. To this day I am a manager and my life is great. Thank you. I have been clean now for 8 years. And for everyone that truly wants to change your life this is the program for you!

  • My daughter attended this program. She had been to 4 other treatment centers. This program is the best treatment center by a long shot. They said individualized treatment and they meant it. I was able to attend a family group each week where I learned so many valuable skills. I learned to interact with my daughter in a whole new healthy way. They saved my daughter's life.
