Connections’ walk-in behavioral health clinics do not require an appointment, eliminating access issues for those in need. Individuals simply walk in and get the care and help they need. On average, individuals are seen by a trained crisis worker in 23 to 90 minutes.


Connections is credited with pioneering the 23-hour emergency psychiatric observation and stabilization unit. As an alternative to jails or emergency rooms, individuals receive more focused treatment and care in a therapeutic and safe environment. All discharges to the appropriate level of care occur within 23 hours and 59 minutes.


Our subacute crisis stabilization units provide high-quality care and treatment for individuals who require additional time to safely stabilize, in lieu of having to endure the lengthy wait for placement in an inpatient unit. Under the Connections model, stays for both voluntary and involuntary individuals average three to four days.

Connections’ Transitions Outpatient Treatment Program partners with local resources and providers to help individuals overcome any social or clinical barriers as they embark on their recovery journey. The program is designed to reduce readmissions and reentry back into the crisis system. Individuals who enroll in the program typically graduate within 45 days.

Not only are they nice and knowledgeable, but they actually care. I'm so glad I came here.

Connections Arizona Patient

I have never been to a clinic like this one before. The doctor is very respectful and understanding about my situation. I like how my life is beginning to change. This has been by far the most effective treatment program I have been to.

Kyle M.

Admittedly, I never wanted to go there. But if I had to go again I would want to go there and nowhere else. I have never been in a medical facility with nicer staff. Both men and women. From the medical assistants to the nurses, the doctors, everyone is a five-star person. Absolutely amazing. They were calm they were helpful and they tried to do their best for every single patient. That’s pretty awesome. It means they love what they do. They are very good at it.

Very positive, intelligent, and comforting. Also, the staff members are passionate and always try their hardest even when there are technical issues. It’s great to converse with everyone here. Overall, I’ve had a great experience my last few visits.
