Phoenix House knows this is a courageous step and we want you to know that we are here to help. We have a wide variety of treatment services available to meet your teen’s needs, and our adolescent programs also offer special services just for family members.
Whether your teen needs an evaluation, prevention or educational services, outpatient counseling, or residential treatment, we have options. Our Phoenix House Academies offer intensive substance abuse services with high school academic programs in CARF-accredited facilities. Most also offer an array of mental health services. The Phoenix House Academy model is listed in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices(NREPP). Services include: evaluation and assessment; case management; individual, group, and family counseling; education; recreation; and aftercare referrals. Academies may also provide: medical, dental, and psychiatric evaluation and treatment; GED testing, and pre-vocational activities. Additional services include: arts therapy; opportunities to work with horticultural experts; and writing and recording music in our professional on-site music studios. Cultural and recreational activities include yoga, karate, and meditation classes. Family members are involved in all phases of our continuum of care, from counseling and therapy to parent/family education seminars to educational workshops.
