Behavioral Health

CPLC provides a wide variety of Behavioral Health services.

CPLC offers a wide range of behavioral health services through three programs: Centro De La Familia, housed at our Maryvale Community Service Center; Centro Esperanza in Mesa; and Friendship, located at our headquarters in Phoenix.

“They provide the help I need.”

Centro de la Familia

CPLC Centro De La Familia provides outpatient behavioral health services for families and individuals of all ages. The program offers counseling and therapy services to those living with serious mental illness, general mental health issues, and substance abuse issues. These issues can be related to depression, anxiety, relationships, loss, substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, and trauma from sexual, emotional and/or physical abuse. Outpatient services offer flexible office hours and home-based services for children and their families, public transit accessibility, therapy in English and Spanish, and professional staff who utilize best practice models for treatment.

Centro Esperanza

CPLC Centro Esperanza offers specialized services for SMI populations focusing on case management and psychiatric services.


CPLC Friendship’s community-based Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for SMI adults provides intensive services following, or to prevent, a psychiatric hospitalization. We offer coordinated care with other community providers for long-term integrated psychiatric and substance abuse treatment as well as crisis prevention and medication management. Our services include both 1:1 and Group Counseling and serve both SMI Title 19 and non-19 populations. We provide transportation and two full meals per day catered by STAR. CPLC Friendship, CMHC is the only certified Medicare IOP program in Arizona and accepts most insurance plans.
