Adult Services


NARBHA's Adult Services operates with a team approach to develop, implement, monitor and manage services and programs for adult members enrolled in the NARBHA system.  NARBHA's Adult Services focuses on monitoring and improving services for enrolled members that will assist in their journey to recovery.

NARBHA's Adult Service staff regularly work in collaborative relationships and partnerships with the member; family members; stakeholders and other community based agencies.  These agencies include the Division of Developmental Disabilities; the Arizona Department of Corrections; Rehabilitation Services Administration; the Arizona Department of Housing and the Arizona Department of Health Services/Division of Behavioral Health Services.


Vision for Adult Services

NARBHA's Adult Services is dedicated to the treatment and recovery of adults and their families with behavioral health needs.  In collaboration with ADHS/DBHS, NARBHA supports the provision of services in an individualized, strength based approach facilitating self empowerment and self determination.

NARBHA effectively coordinates the systems of care by identifying the needs presented by providers and stakeholders.

Adult Services are delivered with the expectation that members are capable of positive change, and improving the quality of their lives.


Guiding Principles for Recovery-Oriented Adult Behavioral Health Services & Systems

These Guiding Principles were influenced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Consensus Statement, the U.S. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association Core Principles, the AZ Department of Health Services, Division of Behavioral Health Services Vision Statement, Arizona's Five

Principles for Person-Centered Treatment Planning, and Arizona's 12 Principles for Children's Behavioral Health Care. They also were influenced by the groundbreaking work done by a large group of peers, family members, stakeholders, service providers, and administrators in Maricopa County who developed a Recovery Report Card under the guidance of Dr. Mark Ragins from the Mental Health America Village program in Long Beach, California. The Recovery Report Card provides indicators of a recovery-oriented system while giving concrete examples of ways programs can promote recovery and develop healing relationships.
