ABOUT CPLC CORAZÓN TREATMENT CENTER
Located in Phoenix, Ariz., Corazón Treatment Center is a multicultural and bilingual residential substance abuse treatment center for adults operated by Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC). Corazón is the Spanish word for heart, which reflects the personal recovery journey from addiction to sobriety. Short-term treatment and long-term transitional living programs for men are available, as well as a few holistic healing extras.
In addition to health and human services, CPLC’s multimillion-dollar budget goes toward economic development, education, and housing for residents in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, the residential program lasts between 30 and 60 days. Treatment consists of daily group therapy and educational sessions on topics such as the addictive process, stages of change, and building recovery social supports. Individual therapy is provided each week.
Clients are taught about community support groups including the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and are encouraged to attend meetings while in treatment. Staff and visiting athletic trainers facilitate alternative healing therapies, including morning meditation sessions, daily yoga and Tai Chi, and a sweat lodge rejuvenation experience.
Men who complete the treatment program and wish to remain in a supportive recovery environment can apply for admission into the facility’s transitional living program. Transitional living lasts between three and six months.
CPLC’s website indicated support services include assistance with finding employment, pursuing educational goals, finding permanent housing, and reconnecting with family. The facility’s website also mentions transportation to assist in achieving these goals.
The center’s website notes CPLC is governed by a multidisciplinary advisory board and executive leadership team. Few details on the clinical team are available, but the organization’s website states that most staff are bilingual and able to provide therapy in both English and Spanish. The lone alum polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave five out of five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience.
