Behavioral Health Sober Living

Pendleton Court (women) and Indian Rehabilitation (men) provide independent, recovery living environments based on a community strengths model with the goal of self-sufficiency.  Recovery support is available from a live-in Recovery Coach and residents must participate in NAC's Intensive Outpatient Program along with community and in-house support groups and cultural activities.  As their self-sufficiency increases, residents become responsible for their own food, linens and bedding and all other ‘basic need’ expenses. When ready to live more independently, residents move into market rate or subsidized housing within the community. If units are available, residents who are eligible may move in to one of NAC’s affordable housing communities where they will also be supported in their recovery. Referrals are made through NAC's residential treatment (Patina Wellness Center) or Intensive Outpatient Programs. Please call 602-602-424-2060 to learn more.

Intake and Assessment:

The first step in connecting with behavioral health services is to complete an intake and assessment.  This helps our staff determine which programs and services would be beneficial to you.

Intakes and assessments are scheduled by appointment. Please call 602-424-2060 or visit our Outpatient Treatment Center located at 4520 N. Central, Suite 100 in Phoenix, Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Walk-Ins are seen Monday - Friday between of 8:00 am-3:00 pm.

If you come to your assessment appointment under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may be referred to an appropriate provider for crisis stabilization and/or medical detoxification.

Prior to your intake and assessment, please download and complete the Referral Intake form.  Bring this along with a valid photo ID (state issued, tribal, etc.) to your appointment. ( Referral Intake form ).

NAC has Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) funds that can be used to fund treatment services for people who live in Maricopa County and are in need of substance use treatment.  This funding can be used when substance use treatment services are not covered by a person's private insurance plan.  This funding is also used for NAC to serve priority populations including: Pregnant women; Women with Dependent Children; Intravenous drug users and all other individuals with a substance use disorder.  If you are wondering if you or your family member meets eligibility for these services, please contact us at 602-424-2060 or assessment@nativeconnections.org.
