The Healing Power of Visitation at The Summit Sanctuary, a Luxury Rehab in Scottsdale, Arizona

At The Summit Sanctuary, a premier luxury rehab in Scottsdale, Arizona, we deeply

understand that recovery from mental health challenges or addiction is a journey best

taken with the loving support of family and friends. Visitation during rehabilitation is

incredibly important, providing emotional support, strengthening motivation, and

fostering a sense of connection. We are pleased to welcome visitors on Fridays, offering

family counseling sessions at this time to ensure that families play an integral role in the

recovery process.

Why Visitation Matters: The Strength of Support

The presence of loved ones can be a powerful force for individuals undergoing

treatment. Studies have shown that a strong social support system significantly

enhances recovery outcomes. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health

Services Administration (SAMHSA), individuals with family support are more likely to

engage in treatment and maintain long-term sobriety. Additionally, research from the

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) highlights that family involvement can improve

treatment adherence and reduce relapse rates.

Emotional Connection and Encouragement

Visitation offers crucial emotional connections that help individuals feel less isolated and

more understood. Seeing familiar faces and receiving heartfelt encouragement can

boost an individual’s spirits, reminding them that they have a support system outside the

rehabilitation facility. This emotional reinforcement is particularly vital during challenging

phases of treatment, helping to sustain motivation and resilience.

Strengthening Family Bonds through Counseling

We recognize that addiction and mental health issues often impact the entire family. To

address this, we offer family counseling sessions on Fridays during visitation hours.

These sessions provide a nurturing environment for families to communicate, resolve

conflicts, and rebuild trust. By involving families in the therapeutic process, we aim to

heal relational wounds and create a supportive network that can aid in the individual’s

long-term recovery.

Visitation at The Summit Sanctuary

To maximize the benefits of visitation, we have established a structured schedule.

Visitors are welcome on Fridays, allowing residents to reconnect with their loved ones at

the end of the week. This timing ensures that residents have had sufficient time to settle

into their therapeutic routines, making family visits a rewarding and constructive

experience. During these visits, family counseling sessions are available, offering a

valuable opportunity for families to engage in the recovery process together.

Statistics Highlighting the Benefits of Family Involvement

1. Increased Treatment Retention: A study published in the Journal of Substance

Abuse Treatment found that family involvement significantly increases the

likelihood of completing treatment programs. Participants who received family

support were 60% more likely to stay in treatment until completion.

2. Lower Relapse Rates: Research from the American Psychological Association

(APA) indicates that individuals who engage in family therapy during

rehabilitation are 50% less likely to relapse within the first year post-treatment.

3. Improved Mental Health Outcomes: The National Alliance on Mental Illness

(NAMI) reports that individuals with strong family support networks experience

better mental health outcomes, including reduced symptoms of depression and



At The Summit Sanctuary, we are committed to providing a compassionate and holistic

approach to rehabilitation that includes the essential element of family involvement. By

welcoming visitors on Fridays and offering family counseling, we strive to create a

supportive environment where individuals can heal and thrive. The presence of loved

ones not only enhances the recovery experience but also lays the foundation for lasting

sobriety and mental well-being. Together, we can build a brighter future, one loving visit

at a time.
