For years motorists approaching Providence, R.I., on Interstate 95 have been greeted by the image of an enormous blue insect at the side of the road. The mascot of Big Blue Bug Solutions, a local pest control company, Nibbles Woodaway, as the bug is affectionately known, is as much a part of the Providence scene as the State House or WaterFire.
As a public service, Big Blue Bug Solutions highlights local nonprofit organizations by prominently displaying their banners along the front of company headquarters. This past month, Phoenix House Rhode Island’s banner has adorned Nibbles’s pedestal, providing our telephone number and web address for the benefit of passing drivers who might need help with their own or a loved one’s substance abuse issues.
Phoenix House Rhode Island provides medically monitored detoxification services in a peaceful rural setting in Exeter. A residential program on the same campus serves adult men whose addiction issues warrant inpatient treatment, while a similar program in Providence offers gender-specific rehabilitation for women. Adolescents with substance use disorders receive residential counseling and individualized academic tutoring at Phoenix House Academy, Wallum Lake. For adults and teens whose alcohol or drug use does not require residential treatment, Phoenix House operates outpatient treatment centers at four locations around the state.
If someone you care for has a problem with drinking or drugs, call Phoenix House today at 1 888 671 9392. Help is just a phone call away!
