Our Proven Approach

arizona women's rehab therapy

We built Canyon Crossing on a foundation of evidence-based practices. Each therapy used in our center has been proven effective by years of psychological research. Canyon Crossing’s modalities have created real change in the lives of our clients. Read on to learn more about the scientifically backed modalities we use at our Arizona women’s rehab.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is the best-known form of “talk therapy.” Over the course of several sessions, clients learn to change their thoughts and, eventually, the problematic behaviors that stem from them. This empowers women to dismantle the negative beliefs that contribute to substance use disorder.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavioral therapy is a skills-based intervention that gives women the tools to make lasting improvements in their lives. Its core tenants are distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, mindfulness, and emotional regulation. These skills serve our clients well in treatment and in day-to-day life.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a cutting-edge modality that helps women overcome past trauma. Through a combination of rapid eye movements and one-on-one conversation, therapists facilitate the processing of painful memories. Once traumatic events have been confronted, the client is able to move on.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Recovery requires motivation that stands the test of time. To maintain that drive, many clients benefit from motivational interviewing: a therapeutic approach most often employed in an addiction recovery setting. Counselors help the women of Canyon Crossing to set goals, maximize their strengths, and meet various benchmarks throughout the treatment process.

Adventure Therapy

Adventure therapy delivers important recovery lessons (like emotional regulation, healthy risk-taking, and building self-confidence) through an engaging set of outdoor activities. Our residents enjoy hiking, tubing, rock climbing, and other experiences in our hometown of Prescott, Arizona.

Psychodrama, Role Play, and Family Sculpting

Addiction is a family disease; therefore, family involvement is a key piece of the recovery process. Psychodrama offers a unique opportunity to engage the entire family unit in therapy beyond a sit-down conversation. These hands-on exercises help clients and their loved ones to understand relationships, dynamics, and challenges within the household. The result is a more unified, loving home equipped for lasting recovery.

Music Therapy, Art Therapy

We have found that when a client has become reliant on drugs or alcohol, she may struggle to identify and express her feelings. Art and music are well-known tools of expression. We use these methods to encourage clients to get in touch with their emotions, explore their passions, and express themselves confidently and openly.


Did you know that nature can be therapeutic? It’s true! Research shows that time spent in green spaces can improve one’s physical and mental health. Our beautiful, natural setting in the heart of Arizona has made ecotherapy a core tenet of our women’s rehab.

Mindfulness Training

Substance use disorder changes the way women see the world. Through mindfulness techniques like deep breathing and guided imagery, Canyon Crossing’s counselors provide useful tools to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Scientists have also found that mindfulness training can alleviate cravings for those in recovery from alcohol and drug use.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy is also called equine-assisted therapy (EAT), equine-assisted counseling, or horse therapy. By involving horses in the therapeutic process, we have found that clients quickly progress in several key areas, including self-confidence, empathy, responsibility, social interactions, problem-solving, and emotional awareness.

Somatic Experiencing

Somatic experiencing is a body-oriented approach to trauma treatment. Those with PTSD, trauma, and other stress-related disorders work with a therapist to determine where they are stuck, how they can resolve their issues, and how specific motor responses can help them to build resilience and tolerance for certain sensations.
