True Story: Jacqueline

At Phoenix House I learned to see the consequences of my addiction. I would rather be clean and sober than deal with the negativity of getting high and the trouble it causes. I hold myself accountable for my own actions.

“The worst part of my addiction was when I was homeless; my family didn’t want anything to do with me. Phoenix House gave me a sense of purpose that I didn’t have before.”

“At Phoenix House, I finally had people who wouldn’t let me manipulate my way out of every situation. I completed treatment and I’ve never looked back.”

True Story: Jasmine

“If it wasn’t for Phoenix House, I’d probably be dead right now. They taught me that it’s OK to ask for help. Most importantly, I learned how to take care of myself—and that you can be sober and still have fun.”
