Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic is excited to announce the grand opening of our new Intensive Outpatient Program conveniently located in Fairfax, Virginia. An Open House on September 1st welcomed community partners to the new location to learn about the services offered. Phoenix House Counseling Center – Fairfax is staffed with licensed substance abuse clinicians and offers an adult Intensive Outpatient Program that will be held Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 6-9 PM. Services plan to expand to include adolescent outpatient programming and services.
The Open House also served as a forum for the monthly Virginia Professional Liaison Association (VA PLA) meeting. The VA PLA is a collaboration of professionals who work for Virginia-based organizations or support individuals in Virginia who struggle with mental, behavioral health, and substance use challenges. With almost 40 agencies in attendance, clinicians and marketing staff were happy to share information about their services and how the Association can work together to help fill the gaps that often leave individuals feeling like they cannot find the help they need.
The new Fairfax location allows for groups to be held in two separate rooms as well as two private offices. “We are grateful to offer services in diverse locations to make treatment easily accessible to those who need it,” said Pattie Schneeman, Clinical Director of Outpatient Programs for Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic.
Staffed with a Program Director, Licensed Clinicians, and Primary Counselors, the goal of Phoenix House Counseling Center – Fairfax is to prepare clients to live a substance-free lifestyle using effective tools for lasting recovery. A variety of modalities are used including evidence based practices, behavioral management, motivational interviewing, and seeking safety.
Through 21 different programs in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic has served over 35,000 individuals with substance use disorders since 1962. For more information about our programs and services, please call us today at: 1 888 671 9392.
