Introduction and Basic Services

The Claudia Black Young Adult Center of Arizona was named after the PhD and author who is known for in depth work in the addiction and family systems field. This facility offers an intensive residential setting FOR clients between the ages of 18 and 26 who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues. Treatment addresses past traumas and provides a combination of integrative therapies within group and individual settings, and offers a structured atmosphere for healing.

Facility and Meals

Claudia Black Young Adult Center is located on the campus of the luxury residential facility known as The Meadows. This incredibly private and hidden location is on 14 acres of secluded land, about 50 miles outside of Phoenix. Housing offers a Southwestern feel throughout the campus, and though there is a clinical element to the property, the spaces where clients stay are cozy and welcoming. Each bedroom is double occupancy and fully furnished with full beds, dressers and desks. The bedrooms feel like a hotel, with the exception of the shared bathrooms. And though clients are expected to keep their quarters fairly tidy, there is the added benefit of a daily maid service.

The cafe is where the residents enjoy their meals, which are prepared on-site by chefs who are able to accommodate requests. There are also healthy snacks available throughout the day.

Treatment Protocol and Team

After the initial assessment at intake, clients in need of detox are settled comfortably in the on-site detox facility. They are monitored around the clock by medical staff. After that step is completed, usually between three and seven days, the 45-day residential treatment program commences. Programming is made up of several different treatment methods that include the 12 steps, evidence-based modalities and holistic approaches.

Clients receive a highly structured schedule of treatment daily though group and individual therapy, workshops and psychoeducation. There are at least three group sessions per day, usually one right after breakfast, another in the afternoon and again in the early evening. The therapists aim to balance the treatment days between recreation, exercise, healthy eating and social interaction along with programming.

CBT, DBT, trauma-informed care, Motivational Interviewing (MI), EMDR and Stages of Change model are amongst the commonly utilized modalities used. Holistic methods include equine therapy, neurofeedback and somatic experiencing. Groups are kept small to ensure personalized attention for each client. Additionally, spiritual counseling is offered as an added way for clients to find another layer of support throughout their recovery journey.

Dual diagnosis treatment is readily available, and medication management options are offered. However, the staff does provide alternative treatments that are more holistic if that appeals to the clients. The treatment team is comprised of medical doctors, LCSWs, MFTs, psychiatrists and RNs.

Bonus Amenities

There are a variety of recreation and exercise options that fall under the mind/body wellness category during treatment. A few of those options are yoga, Pilates, water aerobics, Tai chi and deep meditation. Some helpful lectures focus on dating in sobriety and mindfulness.

Summary

Specialized treatment at the Claudia Black Young Adult Center offers clients a unique perspective and attention to age-specifc concerns that other facilities may not provide. The relaxing environment combined with the many treatment approaches equals an excellent recovery experience.
