Traveling for Detox Treatment

Get the right treatment you need for long term recovery. Your life is worth it.


Supporting a Loved One Through Detox and Addiction

At Scottsdale Detox Center, we know that addiction is a family disease and by the time people consider finding themselves or their loved ones’ treatment; relationships are stressed and feelings are hurt. Let us help you heal your family.

Addiction is caused by a combination of psychological, genetic and social factors. Having many factors contributing to the depth of the addiction means comprehensive and individualize care is needed for a long-term recovery.

We specialize in individualized care, providing master level therapists and a safe and comfortable environment for detox treatment. Placing yourself or your loved ones in our care will give your family time to heal and you (or your loved one) time to reflect and discover a better future. Trust that the moment they step through our doors, our patients are in good hands.

Traveling for treatment is a wise investment because it removes the the patient from an environment they know they can obtain and abuse drugs and from the environments, habits, and triggers that encourage and promote substance use.

Our approach to treatment has many benefits that encourage success and are proven effective. Let us help you take control before it is too late.

Going to detox out of state can provide several benefits that may not be available in your local area. Here are some reasons why someone may choose to go to detox out of state:

  1. Privacy and anonymity: Going to detox out of state can provide a level of privacy and anonymity that may not be available in your local area. This can be especially important for those who are concerned about the stigma of addiction and want to keep their treatment private.
  2. Removal from triggers: Being away from familiar people, places, and situations that may trigger drug or alcohol use can be helpful during the early stages of recovery. Detoxing in a new environment can provide a fresh start and remove the temptation to use.
  3. Access to specialized care: Some detox facilities may offer specialized care or treatment options that are not available in your local area. This can be especially important for individuals with complex medical needs or co-occurring mental health disorders.
  4. Increased motivation: The decision to go to detox out of state can be a significant commitment and can increase motivation to stay sober. Being away from home can help individuals fully focus on their recovery and make a fresh start.
  5. Support system: Some individuals may have a toxic or unsupportive social network in their local area. Going to detox out of state can provide an opportunity to establish a new support system of peers and professionals who are dedicated to sobriety and recovery.

It's important to note that going to detox out of state may not be the best option for everyone. It's important to carefully consider all of the factors and discuss your options with a medical professional before making a decision.

Promote Long-lasting Recovery

Traveling for Drug & Alcohol Detox Promotes Long-lasting Recovery

Unfortunately, the possibility of relapse is a hard reality to consider when on the journey to recovery. The fear of relapse makes investing in individualized care important for achieving success. Scottsdale Detox Center is a small facility with only ten bedrooms, allowing patients to receive personalized attention. In addition, we emphasize relapse prevention with a master level therapist who is passionate about preventing the nightmare that relapse causes the whole family. Our team not only assists in detox treatment, but focuses on finding the correct aftercare plan for each individual.


The Benefits Include...

Many individuals who decide to travel to a detox center for treatment won’t fully see the benefits of it until they get there. Before enrolling, it’s normal to feel uneasy about beginning a treatment program that’s far from home, but there are several reasons why it can be the best choice.

  • A new place offers a fresh start

    When you make the decision to travel for treatment, it will give you a different outlook on your recovery journey.

    It is going to allow you to have a clean start somewhere that is new to you.  A change of scenery is often more conducive to a new lifestyle, making it easier to adopt a new mindset, new daily habits, and healthier goals for your life.

    It is common to find that many individuals benefit from traveling for treatment as it puts distances from the negative influences in their life. It is good to have separation. You won’t have to fight to avoid the triggers associated with your home.

    Instead, you can focus all that energy and effort on becoming a healthier, better version of you. You’ll also be surrounded by people who are struggling with addiction or have previously struggled with it, just like you. This provides a sense of belonging and may help you relax in a new environment.

  • You can recover in privacy

    It is a common fear that if someone finds out you are in treatment, you will be judged or face consequences in your hometown. There are many individuals who are concerned about the social impact treatment may have on people those trying to stay clean and sober.  Therefore, privacy is super of the utmost importance. When you travel to a different area for treatment it will significantly reduce the chance of you being recognized by someone you know while trying to better your life. You'll have the freedom to get the treatment you need, without fear of judgement. 

  • There are fewer distractions

    Your hometown is likely full of people, places, and memories that could end up distracting you from your sobriety goals. Completing your alcohol and drug detox at a facility that is far from the reach of these triggers will provide some relief as you work to focus on your mental, physical, and spiritual health elsewhere.

  • It’s harder to give up

    When you’re enrolled in a treatment program that is far from home, it takes much more effort and coordination to leave. On the contrary, enrolling in a detox center that’s right around the corner from your house would make it all too easy to leave as soon as things get challenging.

    Logistically, the more hurdles you have to jump through to give up, the less likely you are to do it. Drug and alcohol detox may not always be easy, but if you can fully commit to completing it, you will experience its full benefits.

If you are trying to determine if detox is right for you, call for a free confidential consultation.

How to Choose a the Right Detox Facility for You! 

Choosing a detox center can be an overwhelming process for both clients and their families. There are countless factors to consider, from the quality of treatment and amenities to payment options and more. Although the prioritization of these factors will be different for everyone, it may help if you take the following considerations into account before making your decision.


We accept most private insurance. We are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The individuals who are searching for treatment usually turn to their insurance provider to figure out what type of treatment is covered by their plans. There are numerous insurances companies that offer thousands of different treatment options that are in your area, and there are just as many other companies that offer treatment out of state too.

Some plans pay for treatment using your insurance, state assistance, or cash. The most important thing you need to look for though, is a treatment center that fits all your individual needs, no matter how close or far the center is.


Why Self-Detox Doesn't Work...


Physically, alcohol and most substances actually change the chemistry of the brain, causing intensely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. While many people have the best intentions, self-detox comes with many risks and can be life-threatening if conducted improperly or without medical supervision. By definition, self-detox also cannot provide the support needed for sustainable sobriety and lasting recovery. Discover why you need to detox medically:


"This place is truly amazing!!! The staff here is so professional, caring, compassionate, and all around remarkable people who truly help people during a rough time in their lives. The accommodations are awesome! Private rooms and bathrooms, plenty of food, drinks and snacks. They let you keep your phone and computer (which i hear is unusual with Detox facilities) and they have out outdoor patio for smoking, getting some fresh air, or just chilling. I can't say enough about this place and the people here. I would highly recommend this place if you are in need of a detox facility!"

-Jason R

"I was recently a patient here and I highly recommend this detox. They are extremely kind and understanding. The place is clean an comfortable. It was like being at home. Best part was I could keep my cell phone with me the entire time and they have a great smoking area. The other places I talked to wanted me to go through a black out period and wanted to take all of my electronics away. This place let me use all of my devices while detoxing and for me being self employed that was really important to me. If you are considering a detox this is the place to go."

-Jon E

"The staff was very knowledgeable, caring and respectful. Their prompt response when I entered the the facility with extremely high blood pressure, sweating , and shaking was beyond impressive. They continued to monitor me very closely. I felt very comfortable and the food was great. Single rooms helped to lessen the anxiety and get a great nights sleep. I highly recommend this facility to anyone who wants top notch service."

-Greg H



Struggling with addiction is hard enough, and trying to do it alone is practically impossible. Misuse of drugs or alcohol hides the underlying causes of your addiction and these will continue to disrupt your life until they are uncovered and addressed.

If you are reading this right now and need to change things in your life, please call us now. We understand how you feel and the struggle to pick up the phone. Our staff recognizes that people who try to quit by themselves oftentimes get frustrated and feel helpless when they can’t. You can, and we can help.
