Posttraumatic Stress Residential Rehabilitation Program

The Phoenix Program is an intensive, residential treatment program for combat-related PTSD.  Veterans live in the safety and support of the unit while spending four to six hours per day engaged in therapies designed to help them recover quality of life and function.

Phoenix staff believe that all Veterans can recover significant psychological and social functioning, and the Veteran is expected to want to recover and to be an active partner in treatment.

Phoenix offers Evidence Based Therapies to help the Veteran deal with traumatic experiences along with rehabilitative therapies to help the Vet acquire healthy behaviors and coping skills.

Veterans with acute medical problems or who require close supervision may be better served in an outpatient setting.  Veterans who pose a current danger to themselves or others will be referred to the level of care that can offer them safety.

For combat Veterans who struggle with PTSD and addictions, Phoenix will include therapies to help achieve and maintain sobriety.  While current legal problems, such as probation, parole, or pending court dates are not a barrier to Phoenix admission, Veterans with outstanding warrants are asked to resolve the warrant before coming to Phoenix.

If you believe the Phoenix Program can help you or your Veteran, tell your Primary Care provider or Mental Health provider you are interested in residential care.  Ask him or her to make a referral to the One Screening Committee who will then contact you for a screening appointment.  You can download the forms that the One Screening Committee will require, or you can ask the Committee to mail the forms to you.
