Tucson Area Programs & Services

Individuals seeking services in any Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health program throughout Arizona, have the right to all available services without discrimination because of race, creed, color, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, handicap, national origin, or sexual orientation. Devereux ensures that every client has the right to exercise all civil rights and the right of access to an advocate in order to understand, exercise, and protect client’s rights.

Adult Foster Care

Devereux Arizona’s Adult Therapeutic Foster Care program places adults with mental health challenges into trained and motivated foster homes. Typically, individuals placed in foster homes have previously lived independently but need additional help managing their illness.  Individuals in the program are 18 years of age or older who benefit from a living in a family environment. Devereux Arizona trains and licenses Adult Foster Care providers to care for these individuals.

Foster Care & Kinship

Devereux trains and licenses individuals to become foster parents who are willing to provide a temporary home to foster children. The kinship program assists family members or friends of the child’s biological family to serve as the child’s temporary foster family.

Therapeutic Foster Care (Child)

The Therapeutic Foster Care Program pairs children experiencing behavioral difficulties with a special group of foster parents that are extensively trained to care for the child's intense needs. This program is designed to prepare children for permanent placement, whether with their biological family, adoptive family or independent living.

Parent Aide

The Parent Aide program provides supervised visitation and parent education to parents involved with the child welfare system. The program ensures that children are able to visit their parents in a safe and healthy environment while placed in out-of-home care. In addition, Parent Aides provide parents with support and education regarding positive parenting, developmental milestones, and/or relapse prevention.

Residential Treatment Center

Located in Tucson, the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) provides support and care for children struggling with emotional, behavioral, or substance abuse challenges in a safe and therapeutic environment 24 hours a day. The Tucson RTC serves youth ages 12 to 17, providing them with stability, safety and structure. 

Respite

The goal of respite care is to successfully provide an interval of rest for children and their  primary caregivers, without disruption or compromise to their home placement. Respite care, when used appropriately, may reduce the utilization of more intensive services and can help maintain the placement of the child(ren) in the home.

Short-term Residential Treatment

Devereux Esperanza is a licensed Behavioral Health Residential program providing short-term (up to fourteen days) enhanced residential services to male and female adolescents ages 12-17 years of age in a structured treatment setting that includes 24-hour supervision and therapeutic services. 

Services are designed for adolescents who are in crisis, requiring active treatment in an environment with a high degree of oversight, intensive programming, treatment, and continuous supervision.
