Located in Brooklyn, New York, Phoenix House’s Brooklyn Community Recovery Center is a peer-driven facility that provides addiction treatment and support for newly clean and sober addicts and alcoholics.
Phoenix House was opened in 1967 in New York, by psychiatrist Dr. Mitchell Rosenthal. He was inspired to create a treatment protocol after six newly clean heroin addicts expressed their fear of relapse. Phoenix House has evolved to provides a plethora of addiction services for the financially challenged suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction and co-occurring disorders.
Treatment and Staff
Prior to admission, clients must be clean, sober and able to pass a drug and alcohol test. They then participate in a comprehensive assessment with a case manager to determine the necessary level of care, as well as explore options for sober living, if appropriate. Treatment plans includes long-term and short-term recovery goals, like maintaining sobriety, securing employment, academic or vocational education, medical care and family counseling.
After a plan is developed, clients begin attending groups that address anger management, substance abuse education, relapse prevention, identifying triggers, life skills training, job readiness and the important role of exercise and individual therapy in recovery. Groups range between 10 and 15 clients and can be co-ed or gender-specific.
Brooklyn Community Recovery Center offers closed 12-step New Beginnings meetings at noon, Monday through Friday. Clients are encouraged to attend these meetings but are not required to do so. Clients seeking 12-step alternatives, as well as faith-based recovery support, are provided with referrals.
Staff includes a program director, case managers, licensed therapists and peer volunteers.
The Brooklyn Community Recovery Center has a computer lab and provides data entry training and typing classes. Dance, exercise and yoga classes are also offered to promote good health and wellness.
The Brooklyn Recovery Center offers continued treatment supportive services to clean and sober alcoholics and addicts. It’s a great place for people to go to meetings, attend educational groups and get peer support. This program probably may work best immediately following or in conjunction with a more comprehensive clinically-based treatment program.
