Phoenix House Orange County is a name and an institution everyone knows. But not everyone is aware that we offer a full scope of evidence-based, trauma-informed, and strength-based services for adults with substance abuse and mental health issues. I am proud of the work we do to help men, women, veterans, and the homeless in our historic campus, offering services that range from outpatient and residential treatment to case management and recovery support services. Our mission is to help people deepen their self-knowledge and create a new future for themselves based on positive traits, ideas, and goals.Director of Phoenix House Orange County Adult ServicesContact me
