I would rate it with a hundred stars if it was possible, this place changed my life for good. Before the treatment I didn't had any ambition or something to live for. I can even tell you I didn't knew myself, after 3 months I was sober and not looking back. Now a year later I have a job, a girlfriend, and my whole life in front of me.
The eye opening and soul freeing experience I had at the holistic sanctuary is like nothing I've ever felt before. I was so depressed, I felt that life was just you wake up, go to work, pay your bills, and die. I honestly didn't even feel like it was worth living and my medication had me contemplating suicide way too often. Finally someone close to me asked me enough questions to get me to fess up to how I felt. I knew I was messed up and I didn't really think there was anything out there that could help me. I was just a broken human. When I saw Johnny at The Holistic Sanctuary, I felt loved instantly. The staff didn't treat me as a patient who needed to be fixed, but as a person who has the ability be healed. I had to open up to people but they actually listened to me rather than just writing down nonsense and feeding me a pill. I am so thankful to the holistic sanctuary for giving me my life again.
My sister went to THS because she had several diagnosis' from her childhood and has been dealt a bad hand in life logistically speaking. So I know from growing up that she has not been a happy person, even though she had been searching for ways to be happy through several physiatric medications. I still remember a couple years ago when she told me that she was taking 7 medications for anxiety, PTSD, pain, and depression. It made her very loopy and I could definitely tell her mind was clouded with taking all of the meds. Long story short, she enrolled at THS to get off all her medications and try to change her mindset. When she got home, she was off ALL her medications. I couldn't even believe she could function without them (even the pain medications)! Her eating habits have totally changed and she is now swimming 3 times a week and working out everyday. She told me that she feels more free than she's ever felt. I feel like I've gotten my best friend back. Thank you guys!
This place is the real deal. What an experience. I was battling pretty bad depression but through this program I was able to completely heal. The methods they use are very different than anything I've ever thought of, but it definitely worked. And Johnny was such a light in my journey. He really took the time to learn about my struggles and was able to help me pinpoint the negativity in my life. Everyone there was so friendly and encouraging.
I have way too much to say about this place, but I'll start with I HAVE BEEN CLEAN FOR 5 YEARS TODAY! All thanks to the Holistic Sanctuary. I moved to Arizona about 9 years ago, where I fell into heavy drinking. My wife left me and she took our kids away from me which initially pushed me to sign up for my first rehab center. The experience was okay and I learned some things, but I quickly relapsed after graduating the program, which spun me down another dark drinking hole. In 2013 I found the Holistic Sanctuary. I was seeking a dramatically different type of treatment so that it would wake me up and make me want to get my life back on track. On a whim, I took a chance and signed up. The whole experience was unlike anything I've ever imagined. I give my life to this place and I will continue to recommend the Holistic Sanctuary to anyone struggling with anything - whether it's alcoholism, depression, drug addiction, or just need an enlightening experience.

Level of Care:

24-Hour Clinical Care:

At certain points in the recovery process, it's important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.


Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Individualized Treatment:

Certain drug and alcohol rehabs have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Aftercare Support:

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn't spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Holistic Treatment:

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Medically Assisted Detox:

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one's body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

Non 12-Step:

Non 12-step programs promote a non-religious approach to rehab, and avoid calling addiction a disease (as traditional 12-step programs do). Instead, non-12-step programs emphasize scientific evidence when it comes to both treatment and recovery, and adapt to new addiction research as it comes out. Non-12-step programs stress the importance of self-reliance and empowerment (rather than dependence on a higher power, as in traditional 12-step programs). Non-12-step programs also tend to focus on co-occurring mental illnesses, if present. Addiction can make a mental health issue worse, and vice versa, so it's important to address both.

Treatment Focus:


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Therapy Programs:

Family Therapy:

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing:

EMDR is a therapeutic modality originally developed to help process trauma. In an EMDR session, a patient is prompted to undergo eye movements that mimic those of REM sleep. This is accomplished by watching a therapist's finger move back and forth across, or following a bar of light. The goal is repetitive sets of eye movements that help the brain reprocess memory, which can significantly reduce the intensity of remembered traumatic incidents. Associated memories can heal simultaneously, leaving patients significantly calmer, more stable, and more emotionally relaxed.

Experiential Therapy:

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy:

Each guest gets a plant-based, raw food, organic, non-GMO diet to maximize nutrient absorption to maximize healing. They have the only IV formula that repairs the Gaba receptors, dopamine receptors, and serotonin receptors to bring the guest back to life, reconnect them to their soul by simply decalcifying the pineal gland, and activating the God/Spirit Molecule from within. They also detox the GI tract from candida, to help reset and repair serotonin receptors.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Fitness Therapy:

Fitness therapy blends exercise with psychotherapy for a fun, inspiring, and effective way of treating addiction and other issues. By incorporating movement into counseling sessions, clients become more empowered, motivated, and goal-oriented, all while strengthening their bodies and becoming more flexible. Fitness Therapy is usually used to complement a course of treatment (inpatient or outpatient) to make it even more successful. Increasing the connection between a patient’s mind and body helps both with healing as well as in creating new, healthy habits.
