Behavioral Health Services
Assessments + Diagnosis
Patients are screened prior to being scheduled for an initial intake to determine if they
are appropriate for behavioral health services at East Valley. Patients who have chronic
and severe mental illness or who are active substance users are referred to appropriate agencies and or programs. The behavioral health staff utilizes screening tools such as
the PHQ-9 and the GAD-7 to measure depression and anxiety. They also use the
AUDIT C and the CAGE to measure alcohol and drug use.
We are dedicated to helping patients obtain support through difficult transitions and challenges in life. We provide brief interventions and offer short term treatment (6-8 individual therapy sessions) for adults and children aged five and over.
We provide brief couples therapy for issues related to marital discord, communications problems, pending divorce, and difficult family dynamics.
Anxiety + Depression Support Groups
Led by an LCSW, we facilitate open-ended anxiety and depression support groups. Current support groups include a women’s Spanish-speaking support group, a
men’s Spanish-speaking support group, and a co-ed English speaking support group.
Groups meet once per week.

We provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for patients struggling with alcohol,
and opioid dependency. Call 626-919-5724x2335 or 909-802-0141 to learn more.
