We provide live in 24-hour female residential and male residential facilities. As a result, residential treatment is gender specific in the early stages of post acute withdrawal in order to focus upon gender specific factors essential in early recovery.
It is within this early segment of care that those in early recovery gain insight and develop coping skills through clinically driven experiential activities, educational groups, and process groups. As participants are exposed to new and unique, sensory rich, emotional laden experiences with an element of perceived risk, they begin to acquire recovery capital that further supports sustained sobriety and vital life skills. Therapeutic exposure includes meeting with a master’s level clinician two times a week and meeting once a week with a substance abuse counselor.
The Day Program meets from 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday’s. The Day Program is a vital and necessary component of recovery in order to provide adequate support for those early in recovery who are striving to apply newly developed disease management skills and striving to live life with its corresponding stresses (e.g. job, school, family, social affiliations, and recreation). The tailored blend of experiential experiences, therapeutic education and process groups combined with individual therapy provides the recovery support to assist the recovering person to manage their recovery and also engage in life pursuits.
Research indicates that when the recovering person has achieved sobriety and wellness in an institutional setting and immediately re-enters life without adequate recovery support, relapse often occurs. As a result, decreasing treatment exposure commensurate with increasing life becomes an essential part of treatment across the continuum of care. This is why it is strongly recommended that from a residential treatment experience individuals step down to a day treatment program. This level of care provides the necessary recovery support while the recovering person acclimates back into life.
Intensive Outpatient is an evening program which meets Monday through Thursday nights from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. Sober and therapeutic experiences continue to support the recovering person to gain insight into their disease management as well as life pursuits and the corresponding stresses and coping skills required to be successful.
As the person in recovery continues to build upon their recovery capital, recovery support derived from formal treatment decreases as they develop greater recovery and life skills. The developmental process of recovery is reflected in the recovery person building upon their social affiliations and community based recovery support. Additionally, the recovery person demonstrates they have identified and are actively pursuing life meanings in career, education, familial relationships, and personal interest that they find meaningful.
General Outpatient characterizes the step down from 4 nights a week in the IOP program down to what is deemed clinically adequate for the recovering person. Research indicates that the proper recovery support is critical in sustaining sobriety, especially in the first year. To cut off necessary support too early in that first year often leads to relapses. As a result, it is common to step individuals down from 4 nights to 3 nights, and finally step down to 2 nights a week. Individuals continue to work with their individual therapist and substance abuse counselor during the course of their General Outpatient experience.
For those who engage in the recovery experience through our continuum of care, they learn and develop both recovery and disease management skills. Moreover, patients begin to identify, define, and achieve stability in their pursuit of a meaningful life. As a result, confidence characterizes the emotional and cognitive station of our graduates and family members. Graduates enjoy relationships that are healing, dreams that are being redefined, and realistic applied behaviors that are motivated by meaningful pursuits supported by recovery-based systems.
We regard the trust to provide care by those in recovery and their love ones as being central to all our objectives. We are confident that our staff and clinical program provide the best opportunity for our patients to reclaim a life of sobriety and meaning. We invite you to call or visit if you have any questions or want to learn about us.
The Alumni Recovery Support Meeting meets one night a week from 6 to 7:30. This meeting continues to provide the essential recovery support to Phoenix Alumni through meaningful recovery associations. Weekly meetings celebrate successes as well as address recovery efforts and challenges. Research continues to support and highlight the critical value of community based oriented systems of care for those in recovery. Alumni meetings are not only a part of the community based support for our alumni, but will also provide guidance to link members to additional recovery support relationships in the community. The alumni meeting is facilitated by The Phoenix Alumni and supported by The Phoenix Staff as requested by the group members.
Making the claim as a treatment center that one has the knowledge of the disease of addiction implies an expertise and understanding of the science of addiction and recovery. At The Phoenix, we do make that claim! We know and understand the science of chemical dependency with its associated neurological changes and its impact upon the pleasure system, emotions, learning, memory, motivation, and most importantly, the ability to exercise choice. The Phoenix Difference constitutes a carefully tailored program and recovery experience defined by research that supports outcomes that equip patients and their families with both the knowledge and applied behaviors to manage the disease of addiction and reclaim a meaningful life.

Family members enjoy a family program that provides a weekly meeting designed to support, educate, and guide family members. Additionally, family members are included in sessions during the course of treatment. We consider family members to be a critical part of the recovery process for all our patients.
Managing the concern, fear, and pain for a loved one suffering from chemical dependency can feel overwhelming. When every plea, negotiation and compromise has failed, desperation often follows with the ensuing feelings of anger and resentment. Tragically, combined family efforts and resources have not only failed to remedy and alter the behavior of the chemically dependent, but everyone feels the additional frustration and concern of knowing what to do and where to go for help. Feelings of embarrassment, shame, and knowing whom you can trust makes finding solutions a very difficult and challenging process for families.
To the person who is chemically dependent, you are usually the one suffering the most. Filled with the shame and self-judgment of chronic relapses and continued use despite negative consequences, you struggle to reclaim your hope of ever realizing your former life. You reflect upon broken promises, commitments, and efforts that have repeatedly failed. Yet, at certain moments, that clarity strikes at the very heart of your existence, you dream of a life without drugs or alcohol. You realize that in order for this yearning to have the life you desire, it cannot happen by yourself. You need to surrender and trust someone to provide the support required to become sober and live a life of meaning.
