Mental Health Services Finally Available in San Tan Valley

The coalition is very excited to announce that behavioral health treatment provider services have successfully been secured for both communities.

Special thanks to Sheriff Babeu and Colin Williams with Rural Metro for going above and beyond, to assist the coalition in obtaining this very critical medical support for our local area.

A behavioral health treatment facility is projected to be in place in San Tan Valley by the summer of 2015.

Effective immediately, San Tan Valley and Florence adults, kids, and teens can access substance abuse and mental health treatment services, through the following service providers, with In-Home treatment care now available, in San Tan Valley.

If no insurance or AHCCCS is available, all of the service providers, listed below, will work with the afflicted individual, and their families, to review other possible coverage and payment options. In addition, the San Tan Valley Substance Abuse Coalition acts as navigation point to come back to, if the afflicted person does not get the help they need, from the referral entities. Please contact us if further assistance is needed.

Sheri George, Chairwoman of the San Tan Valley Substance Abuse Coalition, stated, “According to the World Health Organization, by 2020, mental and substance use disorders will surpass all physical diseases as a major cause of disability worldwide. A truly incredible partnership between the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department, Pinal County Attorney’s Office, parents, county administrators, educators, health care professionals, family members and the San Tan Valley Substance Abuse Coalition helped identify key strategies, which has resulted in meaningful sustainable behavioral health care solutions for the San Tan Valley and Florence communities.

Sheriff Paul Babeu stated “Everyday our deputies encounter people with mental health issues and there have been few options for us to help them. Our jails are full of inmates with mental health issues and as a community we should invest in proactive intervention prior to criminal actions, which result in arrest and incarceration.
