AWRC focuses on breaking down barriers that make it difficult for women to access treatment and continue in their recovery programs.



Arizona Women’s Recovery Center offers a Women’s Outpatient Program and recognizes that recovery for women requires forging a path to independence and empowerment. In addition to dealing with addiction issues, AZWRC’s program focuses on the development of life skills, resolution of life issues, creating goals, re-enforcing values and building self-image.

The program was developed on a time frame of at least one year. This allows the women to master skills vital to their recovery, to strengthen a support system, to increase their ability to financially provide for themselves and their children, to practice parenting skills with continued monitoring, to increase self-esteem and to learn to believe in themselves.

Arizona Women’s Recovery Center focuses on breaking down barriers that make it difficult for women to access treatment and continue in their recovery programs. Each client is assigned a case manager who identifies the woman’s barriers and assists with resources to enable her to participate in the treatment process. Arizona Women’s Recovery Center assists with transportation (for some health plans), coordinates benefits, offer psychiatric evaluations and medications, and housing. The AWRC staff is highly involved in networking with other service providers within the community, which increases access to many additional resources that Arizona Women’s Recovery Center would otherwise be unable to directly provide.

The Women’s Outpatient Program consists of three levels, each designed to enhance the development of a strong recovery foundation.

Level I: Meets for group three mornings per week with a strong emphasis on:

  • Working through abuse issues

Level III meets one afternoon per week for continued support to deal with day-to-day life issues and to continue to strengthen life and recovery skills.
