The Sierra Tucson Model® of treatment recognizes a simple truth: all of us exist as mind, body, spirit, and emotions. Only when the whole person is treated—not just the symptoms, but the underlying problems—can positive outcomes be lasting. Tuscon Arizona Treatment Center for both Addictions and Mental Health
Emphasis on Family
The Sierra Tucson Model also emphasizes the involvement of family members during the patient’s treatment. As a valuable component, each patient’s family is brought into the treatment process.
Family members participate in a number of shared experiences with the patient, including intensive feelings work, communication skills, and integration of family issues into the treatment process. During this time of education and healing, families come to understand that recovery is, indeed, a life-long process.

What are Integrative Therapies?
The word ‘integrative’ in integrative therapies refers to creating a whole, cohesive treatment plan, and bringing together the cognitive, behavioral, and physiological systems within an individual. Integration suggests that the therapeutic elements are part of one combined approach to theory and practice.
An integrative approach to therapy looks at the whole person, and combines mainstream therapies with complementary and alternative therapies to bring healing to all areas of one’s life.

What is Integrative Psychiatry?
Sierra Tucson also embraces the integrative philosophy as it applies to our psychiatric services.
The term “integrative psychiatry” describes an evidence-guided approach that incorporates appropriate and effective conventional and complementary therapeutic modalities to the assessment and treatment of mental health problems.
Key elements of the integrative psychiatry philosophy:
The patient and healthcare practitioner are partners in the healing process. All factors that influence mental health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, body, spirit, community, and the environment.
The development of integrative psychiatric practices should be based on a rigorous evidence-based approach. Integrative psychiatry is organized around an interdisciplinary team model that respects and recognizes the contribution of practitioners from different disciplines. Practitioners of integrative psychiatry should exemplify its principles and commit themselves to self-exploration, self-healing, and self-development.
In addition to treating mental health, integrative psychiatry recognizes the importance of supporting physiological and psychological resiliency and the enhancement of positive psychological factors.
