  • I just want to say that maybe Phoenix House should consider opening up a facility in Fayetteville, NC or maybe the raleigh/durham area. I am a phoenix house graduate and make meetings regularly. These people depend on willpower and have no where to really recover. It’s so sad this state does not have treatment options for the addicts in this piss poor state
