Before a treatment program can occur, it’s important that we properly assess you or a loved one. With mental health disorders, the assessment identifies mental health issues from mild to moderate and severe.
Additionally, all patients are assessed for current degrees of stress and life circumstances, social support, access to care, and other issues which are critical to understand in order to provide the highest standard of care.
Our standard includes six levels of care progressing from residential treatment to our monthly alumni meeting. Below we discuss the first level, residential treatment.
The Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Services provides excellent support to those who are challenged by or suffering from mental health disorders. If upon assessment it is determined that the patient requires residential treatment for stabilization, we support the patient in finding mental health inpatient treatment with one of our community residential treatment facility partners. We do NOT provide residential treatment for psychiatric stabilization.
Importantly, when we refer a patient to a mental health residential treatment center, we stay in close communication with the patient and treatment provider during their inpatient experience in order to ensure continuity of care as the patient returns to The Phoenix for Intensive Outpatient support. Communication with both the patient and treatment provider ensures the proper placement in the level of care upon residential discharge. Patients may enter the more intensive outpatient program receiving 25 hours of weekly support (Partial Hospital Program–PHP) or the less intensive 12 hours of outpatient support (Intensive Outpatient–IOP) upon discharge from inpatient care.
During each level of care, the Phoenix Recovery & Counseling Centers provide recovery capital, which is a form of education and skill development to aid in sustained recovery. This recovery capital is accomplished through three types of therapy: individual therapy, group therapy, and recreational therapy.
Furthermore, the three specific areas of recovery capital that we at the Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers found will give you the best tools for lasting success include: personal capital, family and social capital, and community recovery capital.
First, personal recovery capital focuses on basic wellness–financial resources, housing situation, access to transportation, etc.–as well as psychological aspects of developing your dreams, hopes and beliefs for a meaningful life.
Next, relationship recovery capital focuses on family and social relationships and the level of support the patient has outside of the Phoenix Recovery & Counseling Centers.
Lastly, community recovery capital focuses on local resources—such as vocational rehab, sober schools, employment, access to AA, etc.—that support patients during their treatment.
By growing in recovery capital, the more stable your overall recovery process/treatment will be.
The Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers are driven by the guiding mission statement of: “Empowering individuals and families suffering from addiction, to celebrate life through lasting solutions.” We accomplish the recovery experience through a continuum of care that begins at a Residential Treatment facility and traverses across a Day Program, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), to General Outpatient (GOP). Lastly, the continuum of care culminates in a weekly Alumni Support Meeting, which provides a recovery support community to sustain the recovery capital of The Phoenix Alumni.
To make the claim as a top drug and alcohol rehab center in Utah, one must identify that they possess the knowledge of the disease of addiction and integrate 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.
Perhaps the most profound aspect of the Phoenix Difference is our approach. While we are extremely deliberate in educating and supporting the client in disease management and better equipping them with the skills of developing a stable recovery capital experience, our focus distinguishes us as unique. Our focus is centered upon the spiritual meaning making, seeking, and fulfillment aspects of the human experience. Critical to the health, wellness, and thriving in the human condition is the process of having the “inner ear,” the capacity to discover what one believes in themselves and life, to draw upon gifts, strengths and support systems to pursue those goal directed meaning pursuits. To this end, our treatment is extremely individualized, with treatment objectives being largely defined by those awakenings and pursuits that exist within each client.
