Phoenix House New England and the Rhode Island Council on Alcoholism and Other Drug Dependence (RICAODD) are proud to announce the opening of Honor House, a permanent sober housing facility designated exclusively for male veterans of the United States military.
Honor House occupies a one-family, four-bedroom house in Pawtucket, R.I. Veterans in early recovery from alcohol or drug abuse who have completed a stay at one of RICAODD’s recovery houses (or who have been substance-free for six months) are eligible for permanent housing at Honor House. Residents pay a modest monthly rent, which covers all utilities, including cable and Internet access. The house is located near a bus line and within easy walking distance of employment opportunities.
A dedicated case manager helps clients continue to develop both short- and long-term goals focused on: building and maintaining sobriety; receiving medical, mental health, and substance abuse treatment; securing employment if applicable; and reconnecting with family and friends. Along the way, each client is fully supported by Phoenix House’s continuum of care and is able to be immediately re-admitted to treatment if necessary.
Honor House joins a number of recovery houses in Rhode Island operated by RICAODD, all of which are dedicated to providing a safe, sober and affordable living environment for individuals recovering from alcohol and/or drug addiction. RICAODD has been in existence for more than 44 years and – in addition to providing recovery housing services – operates a 24-hour helpline for those seeking treatment for addiction.
Phoenix House Rhode Island provides a full range of services for adults and adolescents with drinking or drug problems. Services include medically monitored detoxification, residential and outpatient treatment, education and prevention services, gender-specific treatment for women, temporary shelter for adolescents, and case management for court-involved adolescents at the Rhode Island Juvenile Drug Court.
