Famous Sam's Restaurant & Bar
Where do you go when you're not at home in Green Bay? We spent December 2014 in Tucson, Arizona and found the perfect Packer Bar - Famous Sam's on Pima. (Not the classiest joint in town but it had everything we needed: 2 Large Screen TV's for great Packer viewing (+ a bunch of various sized smaller TVs and the option of watching the other games), Terrific Fans, great friendly service, really good hamburgers, and you can make reservations to guarantee a seat. (That's not necessary every Sundays, but for the Packer -vs- Lions December game it was a must. A good time was had by all - except the 6 Lions fans.) Thank for a good Packer Experience 3 times!

Desert Star Addict Recovery Ctr
Supposedly a group of the "best and brightest" employees to escape Sierra Tucson, Desert Star is a less than stellar Intensive Out Patient addiction facility.It was unfortunate to find the many of them, directed by Richard "Call Me Any Time" Poppy, made my experience unsafe and disrespectful. I have seldom witnessed so much overt manipulation, emotional immaturity and rude behavior by counselors & administrative staff. Desert Star does not follow their written Grievance Policy and being accountable is, in fact, a big part of recovery.

Sierra Tucson
At Sierra Tucson, I found the spiritual and emotional support that started me back on the path to wellness. The caring there was palpable and sincere—from the unit therapists, to the evening and weekend counselors, to the bodyworkers, to the administrative staff, kitchen and grounds crews. The abundant caring, acceptance and support from all of these people made doing the very hard work possible. It was also a wonderfully beautiful and peaceful place to be!

Monterey Court
The Monterey Court yard is AWESOME!!!The entertainment is off the chain!!! Very good!! The food at the cafe needed help last night (4.28.13)....the hot food was cold, the potpie was dry, and the service was sloooooooooooooow (perhaps why the food was cold??????). Not sure, but will try the cafe again, and hope the service will be better and the cooked food hot.?!!! It is worth going to the Monterey Court for the entertainment for sure.

Mays Counter
Love, Love, Love the food here. So much better than Lo Lo's in Pheonix. The Bacon wrapped jalapeños are amazing and my favorite meal is the butter pecan chicken and waffles. The greens and sweet potatoes were almost as great as my mom's (she'd kill me if I said they were better). And my kids love the chicken tenders and fries which have a sour cream and chive seasoning. Definitely a Must try! Mays is my favorite place to eat in Tucson!

Sierra Tucson
I can’t begin to express how thankful I am for Sierra Tucson. One of my best friends went there in April of 2000. When he came back, he had totally transformed himself and his way of life. He has been sober from everything ever since he came back. I saw the before and after of this remarkable individual, and I can’t begin to explain what an incredible change has taken place. Thank you so much, Sierra Tucson.

Sierra Tucson
I firmly believe that Sierra Tucson saved my daughter’s life. My wife and I had tried nearly everything, with only very limited but never lasting success. Sierra Tucson’s program turned my daughter’s life around, put her on the path to recovery, and gave her the life-long skills to succeed, where everyone else had failed. I wholeheartedly support Sierra Tucson’s program and would recommend it to any person.

Sierra Tucson
Being an alumnus for six years this April, my experience at Sierra Tucson helped me make the changes that have made my life a miracle. It helped me to heal so I can make healthy choices in my career and in relationships within my family. The number of people that I have been able to help as a result of the help I received gives me the faith that it can only get better if I remain willing to take action.

Sierra Tucson
I was in such a bad, dark place when my family sent me to Sierra Tucson. My depression was consuming my life and I was drinking too much too. The tools I learned to help me cope have made a huge difference and the doctors helped me get on the right medication for my depression. I needed help desperately and I am glad my family found Sierra. It has made a huge difference in my quality of life.

Sierra Tucson
Sierra Tucson opened my eyes and my heart to the possibilities of a happy and healthy life of recovery and renewal. I was able to rekindle my spirituality and resolve deeply held issues of my disease. The staff and community come together as one in a cohesive and structured program that heals the body, mind, and soul. I am continuing to work a program based on the Sierra Tucson model.
Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
