A collection of Paradise Valley residents are expressing concerns regarding the prospect of a behavioral health residential treatment center moving in next door.

Along Sunnyvale Road in the Town of Paradise Valley is a row of million-dollar homes that, for years, has been a picturesque representation of suburbia in the Valley of the Sun, long-time residents contend.

A Blue Sands Recovery Center proposal for a luxury sober-living facility at 7102 E. Sunnyvale Road — where the proposed rent would be $9,000 a month and with monthly projected treatment service revenues exceeding $100,000 — may be threatening the neighborhood that once was.
