Phoenix House’s IMPACT Program offers various services to teens and their families as they acquire the valuable skills to sustain healthy recovery. These sessions becomes a safe haven for youths to discuss their feelings and inner conflicts. The Voices program, designed for adolescent females, ages 13-18, helps those with a history of trauma or violence who were previously using drugs to cope. A certified trauma therapist leads the individual and group sessions, where teens willingly discuss their problems while supporting their peers with similar concerns.

Gender-specific curricula such as Voices enables teens to empower themselves and refine their coping skills in a comforting, compassionate setting. This strength-based approach helps them recognize their triggers and impulses, and gives them the skills to continue on the road to recovery.

For more than 30 years, Phoenix House’s IMPACT Program (Intervention Moves Parents and Children Together)  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.
