Scottsdale just got a new outpatient therapy clinic from Embark Behavior Health, a leading network of mental health treatment programs for preteens, teens, young adults, and their families.

The clinic is enrolling clients and will feature an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and a therapeutic day treatment program (also known as a partial hospitalization program, or PHP) as part of the company’s robust continuum of care.

“The new Scottsdale outpatient center, along with our existing Phoenix location, will be a catalyst for healing in the Valley and a window into Embark’s spectrum of services," says Alex Stavros, CEO of Embark Behavioral Health. "Our teammates have done an exceptional job launching these programs and bringing the Embark treatment approach to families across the greater Phoenix area. And with suicide being the second-leading cause of death for ages 10-24 in Arizona, it’s more important than ever that we create access to higher quality mental health services."

The clinic, located at 7373 N. Scottsdale Road, Ste. D-120, in Scottsdale’s McCormick Ranch area, will be the second Embark location offering outpatient treatment programs in Arizona, with Uptown Phoenix being the first.

Programs include individual, group, and family therapy, as well as therapeutic/peer mentoring, home health care services, addiction treatment, and parent coaching for issues such as:

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Anger/mood regulation
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Bullying
  • Depression
  • Family conflict
  • Self-harm/cutting
  • Social isolation
  • Substance use/abuse
  • Technology addiction

“The new Scottsdale clinic will help more adolescents and young adults to maintain and thrive in their lives and relationships through the support of professional mental health counseling,” says the location’s executive director, Dr. Meka Allen, who has a doctorate in social work.  “I’m excited to bring our unique family-centered treatment approach to those in need in our area.”
