“That sense of something bigger that I felt back at Phoenix House, that new and better path–I’ve never let go of that. Every day is a new gift and I’m not going to mess that up with drugs or alcohol.” – Sky Soleil
At Phoenix House, we are always glad to learn about alumni success stories after clients completed their treatment programs. Therefore, we are more than happy to commend Sky Soleil ─ a Phoenix House Academy alumnus who entered our San Diego rehabilitation center at the age of 16. At the time, Sky was a boy with an interrupted life. When he was only 12 years old, Sky had to witness various incidents of domestic disputes between his step-father and mother. As a result of this turmoil, Sky had dropped out of high school and was in and out of juvenile hall.
This year, Phoenix House is proud to congratulate Sky for his 20th year of sobriety, and for the grand accomplishments he’s made along his journey. On February 25, 2014, Sky will be appearing as a guest star on TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles, a television series starring Angie Harmon as police detective Jane Rizzoli, and Sasha Alexander as medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles. An accomplished actor, Sky earlier appeared on several popular TV dramas, including NCIS, Criminal Minds, and Brothers and Sisters.
Sky is currently producing his first feature film, The Elevator ─ a film that captures his personal experience with recovery. The film tells the story of a fictional 16-year-old whose life dramatically changed when he began his treatment at Phoenix House Academy. It is not hard to guess that this teen is based on Sky’s own youth.
If you or your loved one need help, just like Sky needed help when he arrived at Phoenix House Academy in San Diego, do not hesitate to call Phoenix House’s caring and experienced counselors at 1 888 671 9392. Our Call Center staff will find the appropriate admission counselor to discuss your residential or outpatient treatment options.
