Clean Adventures Prescott Arizona

Clean Adventures has a visionary approach to provide the best treatment possible in a safe environment utilizing the 12 steps, a full time clinical staff and an extensive Adventure based program to develop a life of recovery.


Located about one mile above sea level and 100 miles from Phoenix in the Arizona city of Prescott, Clean Adventures is one of just 82 (22.9 percent) residential treatment facilities in the state. For adult men addressing drug and alcohol abuse, this program takes a very specific approach to treatment. Clients who struggle with addiction participate in structured supportive housing, intensive cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and outdoor adventure excursions. According to the facility’s website, the “adventure-based” treatment is designed both to challenge clients and to provide opportunities for them to learn to enjoy sober lives. This is also one of 205 (57.3 percent) facilities in Arizona to offer treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression.

No detox services are provided on-site.


The six-month program builds on 12-step meetings and evidence-based modalities including CBT, rational emotive behavioral therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Clients meet individually with a psychiatrist once a week and, according to the facility’s Facebook page, participate in about 10 hours of group processing sessions. Clean Adventures provides training and practice in life skills, covering vocational preparation, budgeting, and communication. Random alcohol and drug screenings are also conducted weekly.

Experiential and recreational therapies play a key role. Six off-site, multi-day trips offered per year include activities such as white water rafting, snowboarding, and canyoneering. During the time period when clients are in treatment in Prescott, local activities include rock climbing and hiking.

Clean Adventures encourages loved ones to be involved in the recovery process through a weekend family program that prioritizes networking, experiential therapy, communication, and family sculpting.

In Arizona, 99.7 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities have continuing education requirements for staff.


The program has space for 27 residential clients, who stay in comfortably furnished homes. This allows for slightly more clients than the national average number of people in residential treatment at a time, which is 18 individuals. These clients are assigned chores and work with peers to maintain their living environment.
