Have a Question?


Below are some of the most common questions that we get at CHR. You may find the answer to your question here.  If you don't, feel free to call us or send an email. We will get right back to you.

How do I become a participant at CHR?


To receive service at CHR you must be an individual that has a behavior health condition such as mental health and or subtance use disorder.

If you  have been deemed SMI your clinic must refer you to CHR.  A referral must be sent from your case manager.

If you are not associated with a clinic or do not have SMI designation then any provider can refer you to our services or you can self refer. CHR will make sure we have the documents we need on order to allow for services to begin and continue. 




Can I bring my children with me to CHR?


No, CHR is an independent adult program. You must be 18 years or older to be here at CHR. 

Can I bring a guest to CHEEERS?


After you have completed the intake process you are allowed to bring a guest / someone who supports your recovery once a month. You must have a 24-hour approval for your guest. 

If you have a friend or family member who might benefit from our services we will issue a visitor pass for the individual to allow us time to see if an intake into programming is possible. 


Can my guest come with me on an Out N About?


You must have completed an intake and be a CHR participant to  attend any of the offsite activities.  It is not appropriate to have friends or family meet you off site unless it is otherwise planned as part of the  outing. 


Do you provide transportation?


Transportation services are set up by your case manager at your clinic or using transportation portal. Please call us to find out more. .


Do you provide counseling sessions and do you have doctors/therapist on site?


CHR is not a clinic. we are a Peer-Run and Peer-Driven agency that provides Peer Support Services.  Participants are referred to CHR to help with their wellness goals through classes, groups and one-on-one support with peer guidance. We work with clinics within theMercy Maricopa Integrated Caresystem.


Does CHR accept volunteers? 


CHR has a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year and will customize  volunteer experiences based on interests. Hosting a special art class for our participants, joining us at an event in the community and helping us to share information about CHR, administrative duties such as helping us to assemble program materials, or even rallying your friends to donate unused personal hygiene items for our participants are just some of the ways you can get involved. To learn more about getting involved, you can call Maria Whaley, Director of Operations at 602-246-7607.
