A Message from Our Director

Welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest in Sierra Tucson. As you spend some time reviewing the information we’ve posted here, I’m confident that you’ll soon see why our program has become an internationally recognized leader in the field of residential recovery.

However, while I’m understandably proud of the many things that make Sierra Tucson such a special place, the purpose of this message isn’t to spend more time talking about us. For the next few moments, I’d like to focus on you.

If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction, a behavioral disorder, or a related condition, I want you to understand one thing: You are the sole reason that Sierra Tucson exists.

Since the day we opened our doors in 1983, Sierra Tucson has had one goal: To provide the  most compassionate and clinically effective care possible to the people who come to us in need.

A lot has changed over the ensuing decades – we moved a few miles down the road, we’ve expanded our programs, and we’ve continued to improve our ability to provide world-class care. But in all those years, we’ve never wavered in our commitment to our patients and their families.

Every day, we work to raise, and then exceed, the standard for addictions and behavioral health treatment. We continually review and refine the time-tested techniques that have served patients so well for decades, and we assess and adapt “best practice” methods that promise to enhance our patients’ ability to pursue lifelong recovery.

But none of this matters without you.

As we prepare to enter our fourth decade, Sierra Tucson remains a place where patient-centered care isn’t just a buzzword, but the fundamental principle that guides everything we do.

When you enter treatment at Sierra Tucson, you will never be “just another patient.” The moment you walk through our front door, you become an active participant in your own recovery. You will collaborate with your treatment team to develop and complete a personalized plan that has been customized to meet your unique needs – and you will make important contributions regarding the direction and progress of your treatment.
If, after reviewing this website, you think Sierra Tucson may be the place to you, I encourage you to learn more by calling us at 866-806-7214 or completing our online contact form.

As I mentioned earlier in this message, I’m extremely proud to be a part of the Sierra Tucson family. If you decide to seek treatment with us, I have no doubt that you’ll feel the exact same way.

Executive Director
