About this Facility
For over thirty years, Phoenix House’s IMPACT Program (Intervention Moves Parents and Children Together) has been helping thousands of young people take control of their lives. Teens and young adults struggling with alcohol or substance misuse participate in treatment at our Jack Aron Center on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Most services are scheduled in the late afternoon and early evening to accommodate those who are in school or career training. Individuals may attend treatment one to five days a week. Services include individual and group therapy, vocational/educational support, and healthy recreational activities. We conduct an in-depth evaluation of each person’s needs and develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses his or her personal goals. Parent participation is strongly encouraged, and we work with the entire family to ensure maximum understanding and support throughout the recovery process.
Additional prevention/early intervention programs: Changing Youth Thinking (CYT) and Project Youth Empowerment Services (YES)are designed to service adolescents and young adults struggling with drug or alcohol misuse. Our programs offer young people the opportunity to participate in a variety of services and activities designed to help them live alcohol and drug-free lives.
Most major insurance plans and all major credit cards are accepted.
Our vocational specialist helps our young people seek employment, assisting with interviewing skills, resume writing, and workplace competency. Assessments are performed to identify career interests. We also have a mentoring program matching our students with career mentors, introducing them to their industry of choice.
We provide support in finding alternative educational programs within the public and private schools, GED programs and vocational/educational institutes. We also conduct academic tutoring sessions for those that are struggling with their academics.
Field trips are designed to encourage healthy, sober fun, and to build a community of mutually supportive peers.
