Welcome to Wellness Connections

Formed in 2002, Wellness Connections is a not-for-profit (501(c)3 tax-exempt) organization that is "peer-run by individuals who have lived mental health or substance use issues. We are dedicated to mental health and addiction recovery with centers in Douglas, Nogales, Safford and Sierra Vista as well as mobile service for Benson.

Our goal is for all Wellness Connection members to significantly improve their quality of life. Which is why we maintain a qualified staff of Recovery Support Specialists, Peer Support Specialists and Behavior Health Technicians.

Based in Southeastern Arizona, Wellness Connections operates under a peer-run model. The vast majority of our staff, board and volunteers have experienced, or are still experiencing, their own recovery journeys, placing them in a unique position to help our members.

Through a wide array of programs, activities, training and rehabilitation services, Wellness Connections empowers its members to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

As a peer-run organization, we know taking that first step to recovery is not easy. We also know you don’t have to do it alone, which is why we walk alongside you as you travel your own path.
