Evolved Services

Mental Health Services in Tucson, AZ

Mental Health Services

Evolved provides a continuum of mental health services that ensures that all members are evaluated and provided services based upon their individual needs. The specific areas that demonstrate a continuum of care are as follows:

  • Screening and Assessment: A screening and intake process is completed within 14 days of the initial visit. The member's unique needs and preferences are identified and assessed into an individual treatment plan.
  • Service Planning: An individualized service plan is created with each member within 14 days of entry to the program. Members are full participants in their planning process, and goals and objectives are based upon their strengths and preferences for treatment. Goals are presented in client-friendly language and are available to them upon request.
  • Therapy Services: Members have available to them a masters level licensed clinician who will meet with members to build specific individual therapy goals. Therapy sessions are provided at least once per month.
  • Psychosocial Education: Psychosocial Education is available to each member in both group and individual formats based upon their specific needs. Psychosocial interventions aim to build interpersonal communication, anger management, role performance, treatment compliance, and communication skills.
  • Progress Reviews: Evolved will work with established referral treatment teams to update on member progress and to revise individualized plans as necessary. Staff are available by telephone or are able to travel (if enough notice is given) to a referral agency.

Payment for Services

100% of the payment for mental health services is due at the time of the provided services unless the services are contracted. Cash, checks, and money orders are accepted from individuals who self-pay for all or part of their services. A receipt will be issued for all types of payments, and all payments are recorded in a ledger and forwarded to the accounting department for data entry. Payment will be refunded to the client if a third party provides reimbursement to the agency. Requests for refunds are forwarded to the accounts receivable for administrative review. If approved, refunds are paid no later than 30 days from the date of the request by a company check.
