Excitement filled the room when the Phoenix House IMPACT Youth Program hosted a fundraising event featuring a screening of the Fox Searchlight film, Young @ Heart on June 26th at the United Artist Theatres in Manhattan.
The evening featured a panel presentation by Phoenix House Clinical Director, Dr. David Deitch and included two Phoenix House IMPACT students, Joseph Greene and Angelica Anderson and Steve Martin, an actor from the film. The fundraiser event raised more than $26,000 to help adolescents who are suffering from drug and alcohol abuse.
