Phoenix House believes strongly in engaging the family as a partner in treatment. Frequent communication and participation is highly encouraged, and family members are urged to participate in a weekly group as well as in family counseling. In our Academy’s residential setting, telephone contact between the clients and their families is not restricted unless it becomes a distraction. Visitation is conducted weekly, and our program has a dedicated family therapist who facilitates family participation in treatment. For added convenience, family meetings may be scheduled at our Providence Outpatient Center.
