In 1967, six heroin addicts came together at a detoxification program in a New York hospital. Phoenix House is a nonprofit drug and alcohol rehabilitation organization operating in 10 states and the District of Columbia with more 120 programs. Programs serve individuals, families, and communities affected by substance abuse and dependency. Our programs meet the needs of each individual client, and we are known for a willingness to embrace new research-tested treatment methods and practices. Our programs in California, Florida, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia/Metro D.C. lead individuals and families affected by addiction from disruptive to productive lives. We welcome clients from every level of society and address an array of problems. We work with kids at risk, support clients in recovery, and offer a wide range of treatment options for adults and teens, as well as additional services such as vocational training and arts therapy. They talked about the struggles of staying clean and decided to help one another through the tough days ahead. Together, they moved into a brownstone on Manhattan’s West Side and lived as a community, encouraging and helping each other to stay sober. That is how Phoenix House was born. What made it work was the structure and approach to treatment brought to the fledgling program by psychiatrist Mitchell S. Rosenthal, M.D. and counselors from New York City’s Addiction Services Agency (ASA). As deputy commissioner of ASA for rehabilitation, Dr. Rosenthal made Phoenix House the model for a citywide treatment network.
