Founded in New York in 1967 by Dr. Mitch Rosenthal, along with a team of mental health counselors and newly clean and sober addicts, Phoenix House has become a renowned non-profit that provides treatment to men and women seeking recovery from chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders.
Accommodations and Food
Nuevo Dia accommodates 49 men in rooms shared between four to five residents. Bedrooms are furnished with bunk beds, small storage units, shared dressers and lamps.
Residents are served three meals a day inside a dining room. The food is mainly American cuisine, except on Sundays when families visit and bring homemade Latin American dishes. Meals are shared with the entire household and the kitchen staff can accommodate vegetarian, heart-healthy, vegan and other dietary regimes.
Treatment and Staff
Length of stay is between 30 and 90 days and detox cannot be facilitated on site. The Nuevo Dia, like other Phoenix Programs, utilizes evidence-based and trauma-informed care within a Modified Therapeutic Community (TC) model. The TC protocol is broken into four phases, including assessment and individualized treatment planning, primary care, re-entry and aftercare.
Weekly treatment includes group and individual therapy, a family program, case management and life skills training. Groups cover anger management, relapse prevention, substance addiction education, coping skills, vocational and job readiness and relationships. Attendance at 12-step meetings is encouraged but not mandatory.
Clients are assigned job functions so that they can learn basic life skills. Peer support and feedback are a big part of living in a TC. On a weekly basis, clients participate in Care and Concern groups, where residents provide feedback to their peers.
The aforementioned family program is very important in Nuevo Dia. On a weekly basis, a Family Meeting Therapy group is provided for clients and their spouses in an effort to save marriages that are suffering due to domestic violence, substance addiction and other addiction-related issues.
As a culturally responsive program, Phoenix House Nuevo Dia program rises to the occasion and provides comprehensive treatment for Spanish-speaking men who want to heal from addiction. This facility provides an affordable, invaluable resource for those who are ready to begin a new life in recovery.
