"Addiction Poem" A Message of Hope by IN-Q

"So this is living 

Every single day is like a blessing we've been given

 I keep my scars hidden behind the bars of this prison 

I keep my flaws tucked, right behind my front, sucking up this blunt

I don't give a 

Hey what's up

How you been

Cool man I'm doing me

Chiller than the Artic but burning like a third degree

I'm open like a surgery

I'm searching for a crutch It's as natural as putting antiseptic on a cut

Heal me"

Recovery Support At PHoenix Recovery


Our Services

Phoenix Recovery Services, LLC will offer a program that provides Department of Alcohol and Substance Abuse (DASA) licensed Recovery Home services for men 18 years of age and older. Recovery Homes offer a structured homelike environment for persons with diagnosed substance
abuse issues to obtain the necessary skills to achieve abstinence. Participants will reside in the Recovery Home for a period of 30 days to 9 months (with the average length of stay being 6 months). During their stay residents will develop the skills to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol, obtain stable income and secure stable, permanent housing.


Recovery Homes are “alcohol and drug free housing components whose rules, peer-led groups, staff activities and/or other structured operations are directed toward maintenance of sobriety for persons who exhibit treatment resistance, relapse potential and/or lack of suitable recovery living
environments or who recently have completed substance abuse treatment services or who may be receiving such treatment services at another licensed facility”.

Our Program

Phoenix Recovery Support Services provides a 3-to-9 month program. Participants may also serve as peer support for other participants of the PHOENIX RECOVERY program. The program will be staffed 24 hours per day and operate 7 days per week. Phoenix Recovery staff are certified as either NCRS (National Certified Recovery Specialist) or CADC (Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor).

Participants live on the premises while participating in a FOUR TRACK PROGRAM that result in
individuals with alcohol and substance issues obtaining the skills to maintain abstinence, become
employed, obtain stable permanent housing and become reintegrated as a productive member of the community.

Components of the Four-Track program include:

1) Administering of the ASAM Patient Placement Criteria, an assessment tool that identifies the initial level of care the client needs, development of an individualized recovery service plan (IRSP), orientation to the PHOENIX RECOVERY facility and its programming, alcohol and substance abuse education, and violence prevention and intervention, and HIV/AIDS education and prevention training;
