About this Facility
Phoenix House Academy at Wallum Lake offers a full spectrum of residential substance abuse treatment services for boys ages 13 to 18. Located in a secluded country setting, the Academy provides a structured environment in which young residents confront the underlying causes of their substance abuse, change their negative behaviors, and develop new values and attitudes. In addition to individual, group, and family counseling, our young clients receive individualized education—a critical factor in sustained adolescent recovery—overseen by state-certified teachers, and have access to our state-of-the-art Learning Center. Because successful recovery requires the involvement and support of each resident’s family, individual and group family sessions are integral components of treatment. Residents also participate in a variety of recreational activities to help them develop an interest in healthy leisure pursuits.
Most major insurance plans and all major credit cards are accepted.
