Staff and clients from Phoenix House Brentwood took time out from clinical activities to celebrate Earth Day 2015 by beautifying the grounds of their facility. Clients from three programs–our Men’s Community Residence, the Military Services Program, and the Mental Health Community Residence–devoted themselves to cleaning up debris and fallen leaves, preparing flower beds, landscaping, and adding new plants. Everyone on the team did a wonderful job of working together and bonding, in addition to taking the time to enjoy their natural surroundings. Mother Nature, meanwhile, was kind enough to provide clear spring weather with a bit of chill in the air, perfect for a productive day. After the team accomplished the hard work, a lunchtime barbecue followed as a thank you.
Gardening, of course, is a calming hobby, allowing for creative reflection and an appreciation of nature. For our clients, it’s also a way to learn new skills that can be applied on the road to recovery–and to celebrate Earth Day. We are inspired by the enthusiasm everyone showed and salute the group for a job well done.
The Brentwood Community Residence is a transitional residential facility for adult male clients who have completed substance abuse treatment but are not yet prepared for independent living. Our counselors and staff members provide essential support services and help them resolve outstanding clinical issues and remedy social and vocational obstacles to long-term recovery.
The Brentwood Mental Health Community Residence Program provides restorative services to clients with mental health concerns. We help clients return to the community, capable of sustaining a healthy, independent lifestyle.
Personalized Recovery Oriented Services (PROS)/ Foundation for Integrated Recovery Services and Treatment (FIRST) Program is a flexible, recovery-oriented outpatient mental health program for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, most of whom also have substance abuse disorders. We offer a safe, supportive base in the community where clients can receive treatment services and engage in goal-oriented rehabilitation.
The Military Services Program offers both outpatient and residential substance abuse and mental health treatment for military personnel, veterans and their family members. The program was designed with the capacity to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), suicide prevention, and the unique needs of current and former military personnel.
