In response to a submitted request for proposal application Phoenix House was recently awarded a contract from The State’s Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services to create a 25-bed community residence for newly recovering women on Long Island. This program will include underserved specialty populations.
Following a proposal submission, Phoenix House was chosen for the Nassau County Reclaiming Futures Initiative for Adolescent Out-Patient Treatment. This initiative is currently active and development will begin as Phoenix House works in concert with the Reclaiming Futures team in the areas of Adolescent Evidence Based Practices and treatment development immediately.
In addition Phoenix House has been selected to participate in Year Two of OASAS’ federally funded FASD Project CHOICES to prevent alcohol-exposed pregnancies. This project begins July 1, 2009. Phoenix House was one of three downstate providers picked. This new project will compliment our two award-winning OASAS programs – Women’s Treatment and the Mother and Child Programs.
