Arizona’s #1 residential solution for behaviorally challenging adult placements.

Orion’s 15 residential facilities utilize a structured and tested process to provide a safe, supportive community-based setting as an alternative to long-term psychiatric hospitalization. Our system provides unequaled care, specializing in residents that are unable to be successful in other settings. When a client has behaviors that typical Assisted Living providers are unable or unwilling to manage, Social Workers and Case Managers depend on us. We know what works and doesn’t work, and we get results in 4 ways:

We CUSTOMIZE care: Each of our 15 homes is a unique community, and residents are placed on an individual basis based on age, gender and unique needs.

We have LEGENDARY staff training: We have the best and most comprehensive staff training in the state. Our training program even provides training to staff for other agencies.

We COMMUNICATE: Our program emphasizes communication and collaboration with the resident’s full care team and support system, ensuring everyone is on the same page.

We eliminate RISK: We have stringent processes and systems in place to supervise our residents, manage their behaviors and maintain their safety, both in the home and on community outings. Our #1 goal is to keep the resident safe, including 1:1 staffing when necessary.

We incorporate a multi-disciplinary model to help our residents manage and resolve distressing thoughts and feelings and improve safety, independence and communication skills. Our direct care workers are assisted by a multi-disciplinary team which includes behavioral health professionals, registered nurses, licensed counselors and dietitians. Our recreational day program allows residents to develop social, coping and communication skills. Our paid work program allows residents to develop computer and organizational skills, as well as a positive work history for the future.
