Established in 1994, Phoenix House Academy in Los Angeles provides a continuum of services for adolescents with substance abuse and/or co-occurring mental health disorders. Services include: residential, intensive outpatient, and outpatient treatment; home-based case management; and assessments and prevention. The Academy’s extensive grounds feature two-person bedrooms, classrooms, sports facilities, gyms, a computer lab, and a fully-equipped professional music studio.
Our Residential Program serves up to 110 teens and integrates residential treatment with an on-site public school (grades 9-12) managed by the Los Angeles County Office of Education. Services include individual, group, and family counseling delivered by experienced mental health and substance abuse professionals. Evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapy addresses trauma (Seeking Safety), anger (Aggression Replacement Training), family relationships (Strengthening Families Program), and gender-specific issues (VOICES for girls and Pathways for boys). Individualized treatment services last from seven to 180 days. Many education and enrichment activities are also available.
Our Short-Term Residential “Renaissance” Program serves up to 10 male teens in a separate wing with two-person bedrooms with private bathrooms, kitchen and dining areas, study and rest areas. Clients stay from seven to thirty days of assessments, stabilization services, and intensive individualized case management and therapy services. They attend school classes and participate in sports and wellness activities with other residents of the Academy. Phoenix House “Renaissance” Program offers a new approach to substance abuse treatment that boosts positive outcomes. Our highly professional full-time staff includes a Board-certified psychiatrist and licensed mental health professionals.
Our Outpatient Programs provide after-school substance abuse and mental health treatment services for adolescents with non-severe issues. Our Outpatient Programs offer individual and group counseling, educational workshops, and family therapy, all using evidence-based curricula (the Teen Matrix Model and Strengthening Families Program). Regular outpatient services feature six hours of treatment weekly, while intensive outpatient services include a minimum of nine hours of treatment and other activities.
