Residential Treatment Center Services - Scottsdale


Licensed, masters level clinicians use individualized and culturally competent therapies to address behavioral and mental health challenges.  All clients receive individualized and group therapies incorporating family therapy when possible. 

Our clinicians work with child and family teams (CFTs) to design and implement a treatment plan for each child based on their unique strengths and needs.  The components of the treatment plan may include all or a combination of the following:

  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Milieu-based treatment
  • Behavior motivation system
  • Health and Wellness Assessment
  • Child and Family Team (CFT) meetings
  • Recreational therapy

Substance Abuse Program

Our Substance Abuse program incorporates the skills training component of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), relapse prevention groups, and on-site 12-step meetings.  Upon completion of the Substance Abuse program, each client will graduate with a comprehensive wellness and recovery plan.

Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) Therapy

Our DSEC therapy program is designed for youth who have been commercially sexually exploited.  Our CSEC program includes the utilization of the STRIVE curriculum in both individual and group therapy.

Anger Management

Anger management groups focus on reducing harm, managing emotions, and developing effective coping skills.

CBT/DBT Therapy

Youth use daily life situations to gain insight into developing social, life and coping skills that are taught through curriculum based groups and programming activities such as (but not limited to) bullying prevention, communication, self-respect, responsibility, creative problem solving, conflict resolution and social responsibility.

Recreational Therapy

Our recreation therapy program includes art, life-skills groups, music, dancing, team-building, swimming, sports and off-campus activities.  Groups rotate every 8 weeks to allow youth to explore different areas of interest throughout treatment.

In addition to the social aspects of our recreation therapy programs, youth also learn life-skills.  Our Culinary Arts program involves maintaining a garden, learning about nutrition, menu planning, cooking and presentation.  This program also allows our Culinary Arts students the opportunity to obtain an Arizona Food Handlers Card for future employment.

Education Program

Our school’s mission is to provide students with opportunities to achieve academic, emotional, social and behavioral success in order to successfully transition into the community.  Our on-site, year-round school is accredited by the AdvanceED-North Central Association (NCA) Commission and licensed by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) which allows us to provide elementary, secondary and special education programs.

Our small classroom size allows children to receive individualized educational attention based on their needs.  Many of our students have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and our staff use curriculum-based assessments to determine any additional needs.

Medical & Psychiatric Services

Devereux Arizona ensures our physical and mental well-being by providing 24-hour, on-site RN staff, an Adolescent Medicine Physician, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and a Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.  We partner with mobile dentistry, eye care services and a registered dietician to provide additional physical healthcare.
