Devereux Cuts Ribbon on New Dorm

Marley Dormitory opens at residential treatment center

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Arizona held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand opening of its residential treatment center’s new Marley Dormitory on July 10. Almost 50 people attended the morning festivity before receiving a tour of the new dorm, which expands the 48-bed facility to accommodate up to 52 youth.

The Scottsdale-based treatment center is located on a 10-acre campus where youth between the ages of 5 and 17 years live and attend school while receiving treatment for emotional, mental, behavioral and/or substance-abuse challenges. It is Arizona’s only facility that provides youth under the age of 12 with specialized programming in a safe, therapeutic environment in which to heal.

Devereux Arizona began a therapeutic day school in 1967. The residential treatment center was established in 1978 as a 32-bed center. With increasing demand, Devereux then added two modular dorms to meet the growing needs of the community, allowing 24-hour care to a total of 48 youth on campus.

The 5,000 square-foot dormitory was part of a $1.25 million capital campaign. Devereux broke ground on the project in April 2018.
