Promises Scottsdale

Promises® Scottsdale  is an addiction, mental health, and eating disorders treatment program known for exceptional, gender-separate programming, an inspiring setting, and traditional and alternative therapeutic approaches. Located in Scottsdale, Arizona, and surrounded by the rejuvenating Sonoran desert, clients address underlying issues that contribute to addictions, eating disorders, and primary mental health conditions like anxiety, intimacy disorders, depression, and other mood disorders while learning critical relapse-prevention skills needed for long-term recovery.

Gender-Separate Programs and Residences

We realize that women and men have different needs in treatment. By offering gender-separate programs and residences, we provide clients the security and freedom to share openly and address similar issues among peers without feeling inhibited or distracted by the other gender.

Women’s House

Wandering paths, gardens and the restorative desert landscape provide a nurturing backdrop for clients in our women’s mental health and addiction program or our women’s eating disorders program. Our women’s house is down the street from our men’s residences in a peaceful neighborhood with comforts such as a fire pit, pool and hot tub.

Men’s House

Clients in our men’s addiction and mental health program reside in a separate, spacious residence that includes large bedrooms, welcoming indoor and outdoor community areas, and a pool. With desert views and a range of comforts, clients in our men’s program can focus on recovery in a relaxing and renewing environment.

Executive House for Men

Our executive program for men offers even more amenities for clients desiring the highest level of luxury and discretion. In this program, clients reside in a four-bedroom adobe house with beautiful views. The executive residence boasts large, private bedrooms, soaring ceilings, a fully equipped fitness center, pool and hot tub. Clients also enjoy a basketball court, putting green and comfortable outdoor seating areas.
