Over the past five years, Phoenix House has made significant changes to the way we serve our clients. Today, residential care via Therapeutic Communities represent just a small percentage of our services. We also partner with hospitals and physicians to implement Screening, Brief Interventions and Referrals to Treatment (SBIRT) in Emergency Departments and healthcare clinics, bringing added value to the services physicians and other healthcare workers provide.
Phoenix House offers many dual-diagnosis programs, mental health services, adolescent academies (included in SAMHSA’s National Registry of Effective Programs and Practices-NREPP), prevention services, and case management activities. We provide comprehensive individual substance abuse assessment and evaluation services in physician’s offices and clinics; substance abuse education for individuals with chronic medical disorders; treatment and management of IV drug users with medical complications; and treatment and monitoring of chronic pain patients’ drug use/compliance. Services are documented and monitored in our national electronic health record system; when you send us a client, they will select from a wide menu of services and you will receive timely and comprehensive updates. We monitor effectiveness, use evidence-based practices, and communicate regularly to physicians, hospitals, and other providers. These methods enable us to provide more services, better follow-up, and increased value in comparison to other substance abuse treatment organizations.
