What are your specialties?

We specialize in the treatment of Eating Disorders, Anxiety, and Substance Abuse.  We offer PHP programs for Eating Disorders and Anxiety, and we offer intensive IOP programs for Eating Disorders, Anxiety, and Substance Abuse.  Outpatient, 1-hour-per-week counseling is also offered for Eating Disorders, Anxiety and Substance Abuse.

What is the difference between and “PHP”, “IOP” and regular counseling?

PHP stands for Partial Hospitalization.  IOP stands for Intensive Outpatient Program. The difference between these two levels of care and regular counseling is that an PHP/IOP offers more support.  PHP participants get to attend classes up to 6 days a week.  IOP participants get to attend classes 2-3 times a week.  In addition, we offer an hour of individual therapy each week at each level. Classes consist of therapy exercises, education, as well as formal training in prayer and meditation/contemplation.

Is a PHP or IOP program more effective than regular counseling? Why?

Absolutely! There’s ample scientific research demonstrating that participants in PHP or IOP programs are much more likely to find healing than those who get less support. PHP/IOP participants meet more often for longer periods of time and those who participate are able to address their issues with time dedicated to counseling, education, meditation/contemplation, prayer and community. Our success rate is substantially higher participate in these programs.

What else do you treat?

Our parent organization, Thrive Therapy, includes ~20 therapists, each of whom has a different specialty.  As such we’re able to offer treatment for a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, relationship issues, sex addiction, other sex issues, bipolar disorder, borderline personality, grief…  the list is quite extensive.  Call 602-281-3249 and we’ll let you know if we can help.  On the off chance we don’t offer treatment for the issue you’re seeking help for, we can refer you to someone who does.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes! Another perk of PHP/IOP programs is that they are more often covered by insurance and will often be covered for a longer period of time than outpatient counseling alone.  We’re able to get insurance coverage for most our PHP and IOP programs (but unfortunately we can’t take Medicare or Medicaid). 

Does your program require the use of twelve-step groups? How about celebrate recovery?

Outside group participation is not required. That said, many of our patients choose to attend 12 step meetings like Celebrate Recovery or Alcoholics Anonymous in addition to attending our programs.

What are group sessions like?

Many are apprehensive about participating in group sessions at first. Then they discover that a group session is filled with other Christians who have the same problems they do. Most report that being able to be open and honest in a setting with zero judgment feels quite liberating. It’s often quite a relief.

Do you take clients who are not Christians?

Absolutely. The Way Recovery operates from a Christian worldview,  but every member of our team has extensive experience working with clients of every religious orientation and background. We strive to be an open, accepting and loving community that uses the gifts that have been given to me to help everyone we can without judgment.
