Devereux’s Outpatient Services Overview (Phoenix and Tucson)

Devereux Arizona provides outpatient services to children, from 5 to 18 years of age. We partner with youth and families to identify each individual’s needs and put supports in place to help him or her acquire the skills needed to thrive and succeed in life.

Our services are provided in the family’s home or in our offices, and include counseling; behavior coaching; skills training and development; psychosocial rehabilitation living skills training; behavioral health prevention; promotion and education; family support; mediation; and targeted case management.

Devereux Arizona’s outpatient services empower families by teaching them skills to cope with a variety of challenges. Our services are designed to:

  • Preserve a child’s current placement
  • Process trauma in a safe environment
  • Build parenting skills
  • Empower families to use natural supports
  • Build on youth and family strengths

Youth We Serve

Our outpatient services are intended for youth who are:

  • 5 to 18 years of age
  • At risk of being disrupted from placement
  • At risk of being expelled from school
  • Exhibiting behaviors resulting from trauma
  • Transitioning from out-of-home placement
  • Being considered for hospitalization
  • Struggling with gender identity and expression; sexual orientation; and other identified needs

Meet Me Where I Am (MMWIA) Program Model

Devereux Arizona utilizes the Meet Me Where I Am (MMWIA) program model, which was developed in conjunction with the Arizona Department of Health Services. The goal of this program is to preserve placement by working with youth and families to empower and strengthen social and communication skills needed to stabilize the family.


We offer interactive therapy to individuals, groups and families. We provide support, education and understanding to help manage or resolve a current challenge or conflict, and help prevent, manage or resolve future challenges or conflicts.

Skills Training and Development

Devereux Arizona teaches anger management, coping and communication skills to youth and/or their families to maximize each individual’s ability to live and engage in the community and function independently.

Family Support

Staff meet with family members in their homes to help restore, enhance or maintain family functioning. We offer support to increase the family’s ability to effectively interact and care for the child in the home and community.

Behavioral Health Prevention, Promotion and Education

We offer education and training – in single or multiple sessions – to individuals, groups and families to increase behavioral health knowledge related to their child’s treatment plan.

Adolescent Medicine – (Maricopa only)

We offer subspecialty medical care to individuals, ages 9 to 29. Our adolescent medicine specialist assesses and treats physical and behavioral health concerns with a whole-person approach.

Psycho-educational Services

Devereux Arizona’s psycho-educational services help individuals engage in meaningful work-related activities, including career or educational counseling; job shadowing; resume and interview preparation; study skills; professional decorum and dress; time management; and assistance in finding employment.

Community Outreach

We connect youth and their families to natural supports within the community to help them exercise their resourcefulness and minimize additional professional therapy.

LGBTQ+ Youth Services

Devereux Arizona provides services to LGBTQ+ youth in a safe and supportive setting. Individuals are able to explore concerns related to gender identity and expression; sexual orientation; and other identified needs through individual and/or family therapy. We also help gender expansive youth navigate school systems, access support within their community.
