Laura Stewart



Dr. Stewart currently serves as Executive Director of Recovia, a functional opioid detox program in Arizona focusing on an integrated approach to addiction management including behavioral health, medical management, physical therapy, functional medicine and occupational/life skills assistance. She has been a keynote speaker at numerous local insurance and medical organizations presenting on the complexity of addiction - specific to opioid misuse and abuse - and the effective implementation of opioid detox from a physiological and neurobiological level.

Recovia's outcomes far exceed traditional detox facilities and it is Dr. Stewart's passion and mission to broaden this comprehensive approach and stop the spread of this deadly national epidemic.

Dr. Stewart has a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Arizona State University, a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Her clinical training was focused on the neurobiology of PTSD and Addiction at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ. She is an active member of NAN (National Academy of Neuropsychology) and AzPA (Arizona Psychological Association).

Dr. Stewart utilizes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy in her practice. This neurobiologically based modality helps clients reprocess traumatic memories in a healthier way. Dr. Stewart has found this treatment highly effective with patients with chronic pain and addiction.

How We Can Help...

Call today for a brief phone screening or schedule a tour to meet members of our team. ADHS, 2017 reports 4/10 Arizona adults know someone addicted to prescription painkillers. ADHS, 2017 reports 1,497 drug overdose deaths total in the state of Arizona in 2016. "Most opioid users never intend on getting hooked when they start taking the powerful medication. We must come together as a community to help turn the tide on opioid misuse." ADHS, 2017
