It was the thrill of a lifetime when the young clients from Phoenix House Academy at Dublin, New Hampshire, were treated to a Boston Celtics home game at Boston’s TD Garden on Wednesday, January 9, 2013. This memorable outing was made possible by a generous gift from the members of The Club National, a civic organization in nearby Nashua, New Hampshire, and coordinated by Philip Francoeur, a member of Phoenix House’s Dublin-Kenne Community Advisory Board.
The excitement of attending a live game and cheering on New England’s outstanding home team was made all the keener by the Celtics’ 87-79 victory over the visiting Phoenix Suns.
Providing healthy recreational and cultural opportunities for young people in residential treatment for substance abuse is an essential factor in Phoenix House’s services for youth. As youngsters relearn the pleasures of sober, drug- and alcohol-free leisure activities, they build their recovery skills while developing healthy pastimes which support sustained recovery.
