The Road to Recovery through Rehab

Are you suffering from addiction to drugs or alcohol? Have you tried to quit on your own, or with a 12-step program, only to fail again and again? If you’re among the 22.7 million Americans with an addiction, know there is help for you.

At 2nd Chance Treatment Center, residents in Phoenix, Glendale, and Gilbert, Arizona have access to drug rehab services that can help patients find their way back to a balanced, healthy, sober life. 

Rehab basics

Drug or alcohol rehabilitation walks you through the steps of recovery, helping you deal with the different factors that led to your addiction. You'll learn more about how drugs affect your body and mind, and how to make better life choices. A large part of outpatient rehab is focused on developing the skills you need to live life without depending on drugs or alcohol.

Stages of rehab

There are several different stages of rehab. Some people do the steps in order and finish their rehabilitation quickly. Others may have to work through the same step several times before they are able to move forward. A lot of outside factors can affect how smoothly your rehab process goes. 


A period of detoxification is the first step in the rehabilitation process. You'll have to get through this step before you can start to heal. After the substances are completely out of your system, you can start working on the factors that made you use them in the first place.


Therapy is essential on the road to recovery. Our specialists work with you using behavioral therapy, replacing bad patterns of thought and action with healthy ones. You'll learn reliable strategies to help you manage stress, use your time productively, and find joy and fulfillment in activities that can take the place of alcohol or drug use.


If your use of alcohol or drugs was significant, you may need maintenance medication to help you through early days of rehabilitation; otherwise, the shock to your system of complete withdrawal can be overwhelming. Our doctors can prescribe medications that help you stay healthy while you get sober, no matter what caused your addiction.

Mental health services

One out of five people who struggle with addiction also suffer from mental health issues. Both your body and mind need proper care. Our specialists include psychiatrists who can help treat any mental health conditions in tandem with your addiction treatment for a fuller recovery. 

Why outpatient treatment?

While completing rehab in a facility can make the initial process smoother, readjusting to life outside the facility can be difficult. By completing rehabilitation as an outpatient, you learn how to manage your exposure to triggers like distracting environments and people in “real world” situations without needing to turn to drugs or alcohol.
