Banner Health adds adolescent substance abuse, mental health program

Phoenix-based Banner Health has opened a substance abuse and mental health outpatient program for teenagers. 

The program will operate out of Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Sun City West, Ariz., according to a March 25 news release. 

The program is funded by the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, which steers opioid settlement funds. Patients in the program will receive intensive outpatient group therapy for a total of nine hours a week, according to the news release. 

Opioid settlement funds will also pay for Banner's Poison and Drug Information Center, which provides guidance through Arizona's Opioid Assistance and Referral Line.
