Native American Connections (NAC) opened its newest behavioral health and supportive housing campus in Phoenix. The Patina Mountain Preserve Wellness Center and Dunlap Pointe Housing Community embraces the organization’s focus on health, housing and community.
“There is a homelessness crisis right now in Phoenix – and across the country. There’s also a community need for a caring and supportive response to substance use disorders. The colocation of Dunlap Pointe with Patina Mountain Preserve offers the opportunity to end someone’s homelessness while also providing easy access to help a resident with their substance use and behavioral health needs.” said Diane Yazzie Devine, CEO of Native American Connections.
The Wellness Center offers 48 treatment beds in an environment that incorporates traditional Native ceremonies – including talking circle and sweat lodge – in a holistic approach to healing mind, body and spirit. Dunlap Pointe provides 54 permanent supportive housing units, targeted to veterans experiencing homelessness. With the opening of the new Patina Mountain Preserve, NAC will increase their total number of residential treatment beds from 70 to 118, increasing annual capacity from 500 adults to 800.
