In December 2014, Phoenix House Quincy Center will open its doors to provide acute withdrawal and clinical stabilization services (what’s commonly known as ‘detox’) to adults with drug or alcohol addictions. The 64-bed facility is a partnership that Phoenix House New England and Boston’s highly respected Gavin Foundation built in response to the opioid addiction epidemic sweeping Massachusetts and the entire nation.
Phoenix House Quincy Center is a healthcare facility that will provide medically managed detoxification services for men and women, as well as education, motivational interventions, and other services that will guide them to the next level of care. The clinical stabilization program will provide residential treatment to support individuals in getting whatever continued treatment they need to help them on the path to long-term sobriety. The Center will be a self-contained rehabilitation facility where clients will receive comprehensive treatment by highly skilled, licensed professionals.
A reception celebrating Quincy Center’s anticipated opening was held recently at Port 305 Restaurant in Quincy’s Marina Bay neighborhood, with numerous representatives of the Quincy and Greater Boston government, legislature, Chamber of Commerce, and school district in attendance, as well as a number of representatives from employee assistance programs and peer substance abuse providers from the area. The support and solidarity expressed by these community leaders is encouraging as we stand together to combat the opioid addiction epidemic ravaging New England and the rest of the nation.
Quincy Center is the latest addition to Phoenix House’s presence in Massachusetts. Phoenix House Dorchester Center, a residential family treatment program for substance-dependent women with young children, serves the Greater Boston community. Phoenix House Springfield Center provides comprehensive residential treatment for adult men and women in western Massachusetts, and adolescents receive residential care with on-site academic tutoring at Phoenix House Academy in Springfield. Outpatient services are also offered to both adults and teens, and those just beginning their journey to recovery find transitional support at our program in Holyoke.
