It was a beautiful, state of the art facility.
It had great doctors and psychologists. It was wonderful and had me up and going in no time.
Beautiful location and intimate setting. My relative attended twice for an alcohol problem. The follow-up was poor and this is very important to me.
Excellent treatment care.
The staff were fantastic. The family week program was exceptional and helped us very much. The program got our son on the road to recovery. He will be drug free and sober for year on Nov 2.
The family week was very well run (great, effective therapists and good program) and powerful. Loved the hippo therapy particularly, very enlightening. And loved being outside so much, very open and b...
Very well done there.

Great treatment and groups if you are ready. Not 12 step based, does not deal as well with serious drug addictions.
Teleconference assisted in reviewing tools later on.
- Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
At Cottonwood Tucson, we pride ourselves on our internationally respected co-occurring disorders program. Frequently, substance abuse and another condition, such as depression, occur together. As a first step to determine whether there is a need for co-occurring disorders treatment, each patient who enters Cottonwood participates in a detailed medical and psychiatric assessment, including a thorough physical examination with a staff physician.
- Mood Disorders and Anxiety Disorders Treatment
At Cottonwood, our board certified psychiatrists and master’s level counselors help patients to identify and change maladaptive attitudes, behavior, attitudes and beliefs that can undermine their ability to produce a calm, happy mood. In our clinical work we identify core issues, uncovering and resolving longstanding psychological problems that can cause problems with mood.
