Substance Use Treatment

Recovery from substances often begins with treatment. The approach our staff uses when addressing substance use aims to achieve two ends. First, we help clients learn new skills to cope with daily life while remaining sober. Second, we also work to help clients integrate these skills into their daily lives, teaching them to “practice these principles in all our affairs”.

As with many programs, we believe addiction is a disease that is treatable. We also believe it is chronic, and relapse is sometimes part of the recovery process. Some people may relapse several times before achieving long-term recovery.  We take clients to at least 3 community-based AA and/or NA meetings weekly, require clients to obtain a sponsor at one of those meetings within 14 days of admission, and attend numerous community-based recovery functions.

Our substance abuse therapy includes:

  • 17 total hours of groups weekly (step group, feelings/issues group, relapse prevention group, recreational therapy group, and more)
  • At least 2 individual counseling sessions weekly
  • Gender-specific counseling

Therapeutic methods include 12 step work, cognitive behavioral techniques, motivational enhancement techniques, dialectical behavior therapy techniques, education on health, safety, family issues, diet, nutrition and exercise suggestions, behavioral goal setting, and more.

Because we know some clients may need help transitioning back into the community, we also provide transitional service planning that starts well before a client completes our program.

Our doors are always open. We are here to help in whatever way we can to keep our clients and former clients on track or get them back on track.

Mental Health Treatment

We know many of our clients may also be dealing with a co-occurring mental health disorder.  Therefore, we contract with mental health providers knowledgeable around addiction for assessment and treatment of mental health issues. We also contract with psychiatric medication providers specializing in child and adolescent issues for medication, if needed.  Our counselors work closely with our mental health providers to give clients the best possible care while at Phoenix Recovery Programs.

Specific mental health services include:

  • At Least 1 Individual therapy session weekly
  • 1 family education group weekly
  • 1 individual family therapy session at least once every two weeks, but preferred weekly

Clinical meetings that include mental health and substance abuse staff are held weekly where individual cases are discussed.
