How Phoenix House Treatment Works
With more than 55 years of experience, Phoenix House helps thousands of men, women, and teens find the road to recovery each year. Our treatment philosophy is based on the understanding that addiction is a chronic disease not a moral failing. Individuals suffering from substance use disorders deserve and require evidence-based treatment in settings that offer privacy and dignity. Like other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, there are no quick fixes or easy cures for addiction. Good long-term outcomes result from providing individuals with the tools and support they need to achieve and maintain recovery.
Since no two people are the same, we believe no two treatment plans should be identical. We tailor care to meet individual needs, taking into account biological, social, and psychological factors. Our approach is integrated. Rather than focusing solely on an individual’s use of drugs or alcohol, we treat the whole person.
