With the majority of our programs centralized in Arlington, Virginia, Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic makes it easy for clients to seek treatment close to home.
Our nationally accredited programs provide outstanding residential, transitional, and outpatient treatment with gender-specific programs available for both adults and adolescents. A Spanish-speaking men’s residential program is also available. Our counselors, physicians, and psychiatric staff use a 12-step approach to address a wide range of substance abuse and co-occurring mental health problems, and our treatment regimen includes medication management and medication-assisted treatment as appropriate. Our active assessment center provides comprehensive evaluations of substance abuse, addiction, and related mental health problems in order to identify the most appropriate treatment for each client. Family involvement is encouraged in the treatment process, and treatment length for most programs is determined by individual need. Most major insurance plans and all major credit cards are accepted.
