Flagstaff Medical Center


Northern Arizona Healthcare’s Flagstaff Medical Center offers patients a range of medical and behavioral health services, from short-term inpatient care to intensive outpatient (IOP) programming.


According to its website, the inpatient program at Flagstaff Medical Center treats individuals with emotional and behavioral disorders – such as depression, mood disorders, suicidal or homicidal thoughts, psychosis – or a substance abuse problem. Group therapy sessions are led by a master’s level clinician.

Meeting three evenings a week for group therapy and educational sessions, the IOP track covers a variety of themes central to long-term recovery. Topics like nutrition, early recovery skills, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) help those chemically dependent develop coping and communication skills necessary for long-term abstinence. Aftercare takes place according to need, and can last up to six months.

The center’s outpatient program offers individual, couples, and family therapy for all ages as well as psychological testing, presurgical bariatric psychological evaluations, treatment for gambling, and treatment for child trauma.


Members of the Behavioral Health treatment team include master’s level clinicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and licensed professional counselors.


There’s currently no information provided by the center regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. However, the single individual surveyed by Best-rehabs.com to date gave the center a perfect five stars for its accommodations and only one star for its quality of meals.


Rhonda, an IOP alum who liked the flexibility of the program, told Best-rehabs.com: “The most important part of recovery is a spiritual program. One must find a higher power in order to stay Clean and Sober, try Alcoholics Anonymous. It works!!!!!!”

Secondary sources also revealed positive recovery experiences throughout Flagstaff Medical Center. As of this writing, it has average ratings of 4.4 stars out of five from nearly 700 reviews on Facebook (which it can manage), 3.3 stars from 80 Google reviewers, and 3.5 stars from 43 Yelp reviews. [1][2][3] Note, however, these ratings cover the entire center, not just its behavioral health department.


On its webpage, the Flagstaff Medical Center maintains that “Many insurance plans now cover CD-IOP programs.” Prospective clients may call the center directly with questions related to insurance.
