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

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
