The Pima Prevention Partnership was founded in 1992 in Tucson, Arizona. It operates the Sin Puertas Adolescent Behavioral Health Clinic in Tucson, which provides outpatient substance abuse treatment to adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17.
Treatment and Staff
Perspective clients undergo an in-person assessment substance abuse history is discussed and level of care is determined. If deemed a good fit for Pima, counselors help place clients in the appropriate program. It does not currently offer a detox or inpatient treatment option.
Pima offers three tracks: Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), an MET/CBT-focused program and a gender-specific platform for girls called Nuestra Voz. A-CRA consists of 10 individual sessions with the client, two sessions with one caregiver or parent and two sessions with both (if different). This program aims to address substance abuse issues as well as relapse prevention. The MET/CBT program is comprised of two 60-minute individual sessions and three 90-minute groups, which meet once a week and are designed to provide clients with skills and motivation to change their behavior. The Nuestra Voz program has three weekly group sessions for 10 weeks. Groups are three hours long and focus on gender-specific issues related to substance abuse. This program also includes one multi-family group session a week and individual therapy every other week.
Counselors use evidence-based practices like CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as relapse prevention techniques. While treatment is not 12-step oriented, clients can be referred to local AA/NA groups if requested.
Pima is equipped to treat clients with a dual diagnosis and offers a co-occurring disorders program that lasts for 12 weeks and meets for group twice a week. Clients in this program also have weekly multi-family sessions and individual family therapy twice during the duration of the program.
Staff consists of LCSWs and Child and Family Counselors, many of whom speak both English and Spanish.
Additional services include helping clients find stable housing, enrolling in school and assisting them with job training. Case management services help them find medical treatment if needed. Pima also offers trauma-focused intervention services.
Pima Prevention Partnership provides comprehensive substance abuse treatment with a variety of options so clients may find what best suits their needs and schedule. The co-occurring program offers a high level of support and case management services help clients secure resources outside of treatment to help sustain long-term recovery. In all, Pima Prevention Partnership is a valuable resource for locals.
