Founder Mitchell S. Rosenthal Honored as Living Landmark of NYC

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Each year, the New York Landmarks Conservancy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving New York City’s significant buildings, recognizes individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the city. At the 21st Living Landmarks gala last week, the Conservancy honored Phoenix House Founder Mitchell S. Rosenthal, M.D. as a Living Landmark for his impact on thousands of people struggling with addiction in New York and across the country.

As he accepted this distinction, Dr. Rosenthal expressed gratitude for his long-time supporters and Phoenix House’s inspirational clients. “They are the heroes of the Phoenix House story – the many thousands whose honesty and courage made our programs work, who saved themselves and saved each other,” he said.

In addition to Dr. Rosenthal, the honorees included restaurant critic Gael Greene, philanthropist and Estée Lauder Companies Chairman Emeritus Leonard Lauder, Broadway producers Daryl and Jordan Roth, and media and real estate mogul Mort Zuckerman. The event, held at the Plaza Ballroom, raised more than $1.3 million for the Conservancy’s programs.

We at Phoenix House are proud of Dr. Rosenthal’s achievements and thank him for his tireless efforts as he continues to support the recovery community.

    Hello, I was one of first adolescent residents at Phoenix House Orange County. I entered PH in 1982, I was a junior in high school. After 2 years of a rigorous and intense life changing program I graduated. Still to this very day I reflect on my experience at Phoenix House. I remember all the counselor and their love and support. I am grateful.
    I’m pleased to see PH California has grown. Thank you Mitch for you love and dedication.
