Phoenix House is a residential treatment program for adolescents ages 13 to 17 who are struggling with substance use or addiction (18 if still in high school). There are two locations: an Austin location specifically for boys, and a Dallas location that serves both boys and girls. Room and board are provided, which means they can serve patients from anywhere in the state.
Phoenix House runs a strengths-oriented, positive psychology and evidence-based program that focuses on the individual. Clinicians are Master’s level and the patient will have access to a psychiatrist. Onsite there is yoga, mindfulness workshops, a gym, basketball, a music studio and pet therapy. Participants also get many opportunities to have fun offsite, such as outdoor field trips, sporting events and more.
This a great program for teens who have struggled with an addicted family system and exposure to traumatic events. It is not a locked door facility, so any teen attending the program must be willing to participate. Patients cannot be admitted against their will.
