Light of the Phoenix
The Phoenix House recovery program began in 1967 in New York City. A psychiatrist, Mitchell Rosenthal, was brought in as a consultant to a home-made recovery program started by recovering heroin addicts fighting to stay sober together at a Manhattan brownstone.
The treatment philosophy and approach introduced by Dr. Rosenthal led to the creation of the Phoenix House in its current iteration, as one of the nation’s most extensive substance use and mental health care providers. Phoenix House, nation-wide, offers close to 120 programs to over 5,000 individuals at any one time.
The Phoenix House Rhode Island locations continue this dignified mission through the continuum of services it provides to low-income men and women suffering from addiction and dual diagnosis disorders.
Phoenix House Rhode Island consists of men’s and women’s residential facility, a medically supervised, 20-bed detox at the Walsh Unit as well as extensive outpatient services and sober living support.
The men’s residential house offers men individualized treatment in a private, rural setting. Residents sleep two to a room, on single beds. There are common rooms with TVs and puzzles and men can also take long walks around the property or use the onsite gym to workout or do yoga.
The women’s house, located in historic Providence, acts more as a sober living facility for women who have left residential programs elsewhere and are looking to rejoin society through a structured program. Women participate in 12-Step meetings and receive case management services like help finding work or educational opportunities.
