Mercy Care Drug Rehab Centers
Mercy Care states that its focus is on treating and healing the whole person. They believe that a person’s physical, emotional, and social parts impact their overall health equally. Because of this, they believe they must treat each of these parts to treat a person.
As a company, Mercy Care also emphasizes catering to all people, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, age, disability, or pre-existing conditions.
Regarding services, Mercy Care offers most of the same behavioral health services as the other AHCCCS-managed plans, such as therapy (individual, group, and family), screenings, assessments, skills training and development, and cognitive rehabilitation.
These services also extend to American Indians in Arizona; Mercy Care serves any tribal members who qualify for AHCCCS, even if they wish to receive their health services from Indian Health Services.
