Help for Loved Ones
Watching someone you care about abuse drugs or alcohol is heartbreakingly difficult; you probably know this better than anyone. Problems resulting from drug/alcohol use and abuse can affect many areas of life, from family dynamics to health to financial stability. Phoenix House knows how difficult it is to watch a loved one engage in the self-destructive, harmful behaviors resulting from substance abuse. We want you to know we are here to help. We have many different treatment options that allow us to tailor services to best meet your loved one’s needs. We also offer special services just for friends and family members.
At Phoenix House, your loved one will be treated with respect and dignity by professional staff. We will help them explore how drug/alcohol use or mental health problems may be affecting their family, their schooling or career goals, and their overall quality of life. Our services vary by site and include: residential and outpatient treatment; group, individual, and family counseling; detoxification and stabilization; relapse prevention; case management; job readiness and vocational training; drug and alcohol education; medical, dental, and mental health care; alcohol awareness and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) classes; and services to help sustain a successful recovery. Many of our clients take part in recreational and cultural activities—from hikes and picnics to recording in our music studios— that help them see the potential for a life free of substance abuse and addiction. We also offer specialized programs for underserved groups such as women, Latinos, and veterans.
We work closely and personally with our clients to identify the skills, education and therapies necessary for them to gain control of their lives. We often involve significant others, family members and/or children in treatment. If you love someone, Phoenix House can help. Please get in touch with us today—let us help your loved one set and achieve goals and get his or her life back on track.
