About Devereux Arizona
Devereux Arizona - About UsIn 1967, the Devereux Foundation opened a day school in Scottsdale, Arizona to educate children and adolescents with special behavioral needs. In 1979, the residential treatment center opened to serve youth in need of 24-hour secure treatment. From 1980 to 1990 five therapeutic group homes were added and in 1991, an intensive residential unit was added. Traditional outpatient services were acquired in 1994. 1998 saw the addition of a broad-based continuum of child welfare and juvenile justice services, as well as a large therapeutic foster care program in southern Arizona.
The Devereux Arizona - Richard L. Raskin Treatment Network provides an array of behavioral health and social welfare services for children, adolescents and families.
Our treatment plans emphasize the importance and involvement of the client's family. We serve children, adolescents, and families in our outpatient offices, in their homes, in school, after school, in group homes, in therapeutic foster care homes and in residential treatment centers, offering various levels of treatment intensity in age-specific programs.
A multidisciplinary team approach is utilized with an emphasis on cognitive, behavioral, developmental and family systems treatment orientations. We provide optimal opportunities for therapeutic change, by offering a comprehensive range of treatment services.
With a commitment to advanced treatment programs, and dedication to ongoing staff training, we are able to offer a unique continuum of behavioral health and social welfare services. All programs are aimed at facilitating change both individually and within the family to allow the client to function successfully in his/her community.
