Doctor Consulting Patient


Lifewell was founded with the goals of providing a broad array of quality behavioral health services to adults in the surrounding communities of the metro Phoenix area, and to make these services easily accessible via strategically located service locations.

A merger between New Arizona Family and Triple R Behavioral Health in 2011 united decades of experience in providing quality services to Valley residents and allowed Lifewell to make available services across the continuum, further extending the rehabilitation and recovery benefit opportunities available in our supportive environments to those suffering from general mental health concerns, or the negative effects of substance use and/or serious mental illness.
