teens express their feelings in group sessionsOne of the many activities that teens in the Phoenix House IMPACT Program benefit from is the Interactive Journaling group. This structured and experiential writing process leads participants through a series of core behavior change content and targeted questioning, suggesting effective strategies toward pro-social life changes. Our students are able to map out where they have been, where they are now, where they wish to go, and how to get there as they advance on their personal roads to recovery.

For over thirty years, Phoenix House’s Intervention Moves Parents and Children Together, or IMPACT Program, has been helping thousands of young people take control of their lives and gain freedom from drug or alcohol addiction. 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.
