Residential Services for Adults
Phoenix House’s residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment services are wide-ranging and comprehensive, allowing us to tailor each patient’s treatment solutions to meet individual needs. Lengths of stay are flexible and programs are designed to meet the treatment needs of clients at various points in their recovery — from detoxification to re-entry into the community. It is the goal of Phoenix House’s residential programs to equip patients with the skills and resources they need to develop as healthy individuals and to maintain functional, productive relationships with their families, schools, workplaces, and communities.
Our programs are CARF-accredited and use evidence-based cognitive behavioral, educational, and motivational enhancement practices to promote and support recovery and an enhanced quality of life. Patients play an active role in developing their individual treatment plans, and goals and length of treatment are continuously evaluated. Services include individual, family, and group counseling; case management, supervised recreational activities, relapse prevention and recovery management, often in gender-specific groups and programs. In addition, some programs offer medical, dental and mental health services including medications. Vocational training, educational courses, GED preparation and job placement assistance may also be available. Patients in our residential programs live and work together in a supportive and nurturing environment.
In various locations, we also offer specialized programs for clients with co-occurring substance use and mental health conditions, mothers and their children, veterans, and Latino populations. Please see the specialized service pages for all detoxification services, mother and child programs and mental health services.
The individual (and family members where appropriate) participate in an individual assessment and evaluation to determine the need for treatment and the most appropriate level of care.
Once it is agreed that the patient will participate in addiction treatment at Phoenix House, an intake is completed and the client and intake worker agree on the type and location of treatment.
The patient and their counselor, together, develop a treatment plan including primary problems to be addressed, client goals, and how to achieve them.
A variety of services are delivered, including individual, group and family counseling, relapse prevention, drug/alcohol education, and numerous other specialty services.
Continuum of Care
The amount and length of services is dependent on the patient’s needs. Upon completion of the goals identified for residential treatment, the client “steps-down” to a less intensive level of care (such as a sober living facility, intensive outpatient treatment, or less intensive options).
Patients complete formal treatment and engage in a recovery plan that may include support groups, participation in recovery centers and alumni group services.
