INTENSIVE TREATMENT SYSTEMS OF ARIZONA
Intensive Treatment Systems (ITS) is a CARF accredited, outpatient substance use treatment program providing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to patients who are affected by Opioid Use Disorder and/or Alcohol Use Disorder.

Our aim is to guide patients toward a drug and alcohol free lifestyle with improved personal and vocational functioning. Medication services are provided 24 hours a day 7 days a week and closely monitored by qualified medical staff, who emphasize safety and a comprehensive approach to the patient’s treatment. Counseling and case management services are provided by addictions professionals who utilize Motivational Interviewing and other evidenced based practices to ensure exceptional recovery-oriented and patient centered treatment.
To provide education and resources to eliminate stigma and misunderstandings about addiction medications held by the public, hospitals, providers and patients.
We want to reduce emergency department visits and substance use admissions; by opening a Center of Excellence and extending the hours to 24/7, we offer easy access to effective treatment when a patient needs it.
We have an unwavering commitment to our patients recovery and strive to give them the opportunity and support to heal and regain hope, to rebuild lives and relationships; to offer a program that allows our patients to Recover – for life!
After graduation; to build a strong foundation and support beyond treatment, ITS provides patients with a comprehensive aftercare plan and resources on re-intervention services to sustain long term recovery.
