Partners in Recovery was formed in 2009 by three longstanding agencies with more than 130 collective years’ of experience in behavioral health and social services.

Our founders shared a vision for a new way of offering services for persons with serious mental illness in Arizona. Today we offer innovative solutions that expand the vision of mental health recovery to whole person health, wellness and social inclusion.
