Phoenix House provides substance abuse, mental health, and/or support services which have been specifically designed to address the unique experiences and challenges of the military community. In various locations, Phoenix House provides independent assessments and evaluations of substance use disorders as requested by individuals, families, schools and the Criminal Justice System.
The Phoenix House Academies for Youth offer intensive substance abuse and mental health services with high school academic programs in CARF-accredited facilities.
Substance abuse and addiction often go hand-in-hand with mental health issues, and Phoenix House offers treatment programs designed specifically to meet this need.
As Phoenix House has always been fully committed to prevention and early intervention, it’s natural that we offer Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral Treatment as developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA).
Phoenix House’s prevention and education services highlight the dangers of drug use, reinforce self-esteem, and educate youth and adults to make positive choices.
Phoenix House adolescent programs provide treatment in a safe, supportive environment that gives youth and their families a chance to break free from substance abuse.
Our Sober Living facilities vary based on location and can provide either a safe transitional space before a full return to independent living or an alternative to residential treatment for clients who may need more than outpatient services.
Our adult medical and social detoxification and stabilization services first help each individual to safely detoxify and then connect them to the next level of care: either residential, sober living or outpatient services.
Phoenix House offers comprehensive and professional services for pregnant women and mothers and their young children in residential settings.
Our adult outpatient services are a comprehensive array of substance abuse and mental health programs–all using evidence-based practices–delivered in safe, supportive, CARF-accredited settings.
Phoenix House’s residential treatment services are wide-ranging and comprehensive, allowing us to tailor each client’s treatment solutions to meet individual needs.

At CleanSlate, we specialize in the treatment of opioid addiction. When we talk about opioids (or ‘opiates’), we’re talking about heroin and prescription drugs like Percocet, Vicodin, and OxyContin.
At CleanSlate, we treat opioid addiction using two innovative and proven medications: buprenorphine (Suboxone) and Vivitrol.
CleanSlate has created a program for treating alcoholism effectively that has helped patients find recovery. Our addiction specialists are experienced in using Vivitrol to help patients overcome their alcohol dependency.
We screen all of our patients with drug or alcohol dependencies for other substances as well. We commonly treat patients with multiple dependencies.
The occurrence of two or more addictions in the same person (at the same time or one after the other) is called comorbidity, and the interactions between multiple addictions can worsen the course of both. In addition to opioids and alcohol, we use a combination of medications to treat addictions to the following substances:
• Benzodiazepines • Cocaine
• Tobacco
• Marijuana
