It was the thrill of a lifetime when the young clients at Phoenix House Academy in Dublin were treated to a Boston Celtics home game recently at Boston’s TD Garden. The excitement of attending a live NBA basketball game and cheering on New England’s beloved home team was made all the keener by the Celtics’ nail-biter 103-100 victory over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers. This memorable outing was made possible by a generous gift from the members of The Club National, a civic organization in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Providing healthy recreational and cultural opportunities for young people in residential treatment for addiction is an essential factor in Phoenix House’s services for youth.
