A Message from the CEO


Welcome to The Guidance Center where we offer a full continuum of behavioral health programs for children, adolescents, adults, and families who experience mental health and/or substance abuse issues. We are deeply committed to our mission of delivering behavioral healthcare solutions. Our vision is to support healthy individuals, healthy families and healthy communities.  Along with the full continuum of behavioral healthcare solutions, we have partnered with North Country Health Care to provide primary care services on our Flagstaff campus Monday – Friday.  These services are available to anyone seeking primary care, behavioral healthcare or both. 

We are proud of The Guidance Center’s staff and the contribution that The Guidance Center makes in Northern Arizona. Since 1969, The Guidance Center has been a part of Flagstaff and surrounding communities. We recognize that the behavioral health field is constantly changing and we look forward to preparing for the future.


We offer mental health, substance abuse and crisis psychiatric services 24-hours/7-days a week. The Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program is a residential substance abuse program. The Psychiatric Acute Care Unit is a 16-bed intensive, short-term psychiatric hospital. 

We offer outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment for adults, children, and families. Our services are tailored to meet individual and family needs which include: individual and group counseling, services for serious mental illness, case management, and medication management, psychiatric and nursing services. We also provide vocational and housing support services as well as having a full time pharmacy.

The Staff and Board of Directors would like to thank our community for your continued support of The Guidance Center and its mission.
