Conveniently located in in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, our 55 bed addiction treatment facility has served the area since 1986. Since its inception, we have helped thousands of individuals and family members across the Southwest recover from the chronic disease of addiction. Chandler Valley Hope provides a variety of addiction treatment options to adults ages 18+ including medically monitored detoxification, residential and partial/day levels of care. We also offer free professional consultations and would be happy to arrange a tour of our facility.
Our program is grounded in the 12 Step principles of recovery.
Many of our highly qualified staff have made their own personal journeys to addiction recovery and now dedicate themselves to helping others. All of the staff at Chandler Valley Hope are deeply committed to serving our patients and their families with love, compassion, understanding and most of all HOPE.
Treatment is highly individualized, as is our length of stay. Each patient is assigned an individual counselor, a small group counselor and a non-denominational chaplain to guide them through the 12 Steps. Lectures, groups and interactive activities are conducted daily, taking advantage of the healing power of group milieu therapy. Patients work with their individual counselor to develop a continuing care plan so that they continue to receive the treatment and support they need, long after leaving the residential treatment center.
At Chandler Valley Hope, we are well-connected with the thriving addiction recovery community in the Phoenix metropolitan area, which offers over 1,500 12 Step meetings per week. We host on-campus meetings and have active alumni communities in Chandler, Tempe and Tucson who are constantly reaching out to help those new to addiction recovery. Through our strong referral network, we help our patients find meetings, sober living, and sponsors as well as ongoing support with physicians, counselors and other continuing care. Our admission staff is available 24/7. We accept most forms of private insurance. Self-pay options are also available.
H.E.A.R.T. Family Program
Helping Everyone and Recovering Together
Valley Hope has always recognized the importance of family involvement in the process of addiction recovery. An addiction destroys families as much as it destroys the individuals who are coming for treatment. Living with an addict is heart-breaking and exhausting. Families and loved ones of alcoholics and addicts often feel helpless and hopeless, as they struggle to help the addicted individual without becoming lost in their world. Chandler Valley Hope recently implemented the H.E.A.R.T. Program which helps alleviate these feelings and supports the family members as they discover new and healthy ways of coping.
The four-part H.E.A.R.T Program is a powerful series of group process and psycho-educational lectures designed to bring about healing and understanding. The H.E.A.R.T. program meets on Friday evenings from 6-8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1-3 p.m., and Monday evenings from 6-8 p.m.
