Phoenix Institute: any info on current status?
« on: February 01, 2012, 07:29:13 PM »
It appears by the address that the "Phoenix Institute for Adolescents Inc" has changed it's name to
"Phoenix Program of GBCH and FM Inc."

Old name: http://www.emory.edu/CRL/abb/IR/AIRS98/ ... c1/a94.htm

New name: http://www.twitterlocal.net/Marietta-GA ... 067880157/

I tried to call but the number is busy, probably due to after hours. (770) 514-8255

I could not find a website for this program. I am mainly trying to find out if it is still open.

Their website used to be... http://www.phoenixinc.org

As of this post, this website is currently "disabled."

Back in 2010, it appears to have belonged for a time to a "nationally recognized oilfield construction firm" going by the name of "The Phoenix, Inc." Services included: "road construction, tank batteries, site construction, compressor installation and more."

In 2005, the website was parked.

But way back in the late 1990s, it belonged to "The Phoenix Institute for Adolescents, Inc.," a drug and alcohol treatment program.

Thanks Ursus! This really helps. I will pass it along. I found a good solid page mentioning phase levels and host homes on the 1998 page. Very cool. That's what I was looking for. Now I just wonder where this program is and what it is called these days. i might call the number tomorrow.

Statement from the Clinical Director's page (Dec. 1997):

-------------- • -------------- • --------------

    Steven Hazel

    Drug and alcohol addiction has been identified as one of the most serious public health threats to our society today. This problem cuts across all lines of race, religion, socioeconomic status,gender and age. Addiction destabilizes and devastates the lives of individuals, families and entire communities. More than 18 million people who use alcohol and 5 million who use illicit drugs are in need of substance abuse treatment. "Need" is determined by consumption patterns and the seriousness of the associated consequences. Substance abuse has been described as a family disease. Simply put, substance abuse affects the entire family by causing "disease", while the underlying effects are usually the same. Loved ones desperately try to control the addict's behavior. The addict resists these efforts and the addict's family becomes filled with frustration, anger and guilt.

    The first step toward recovery from addiction is for the family, and hopefully the addict, to surrender to the fact that they are indeed powerless over addiction and that life has become unmanageable. The second step is for the family to seek help from some outside source so that they can be guided in restoring order and sanity to their lives in spite of the terrible wreckage that addiction has caused.

      The above listed categories in the Phoenix Institute's program description ... are described in further detail individually (Dec. 1997):

      -------------- • -------------- • --------------

      Treatment Program

        NURSING/MEDICAL SERVICES

        Our medical staff consists of a physician's assistant, physician, psychiatrist, and licensed practical nurse. After admission, the nurse completes a Nursing Assessment to identify any problems. This information is reviewed by the physician's assistant prior to the History and Physical. These evaluations determine additional tests needed or identify areas of concern requiring follow-up. The Psychiatrist completes an initial psychiatric evaluation and regular individual sessions as required. This medical team is involved for the length of treatment.

        NUTRITIONAL ASSESSMENT

        We encourage well-balanced meals for all clients each day. Many adolescents have formed poor eating habits related to their past behavior and substance abuse. As required, a client will be assessed by the physician's assistant, and recommendations will be made concerning dietary needs. Special diets will be developed when indicated by the physician's assistant in concert with the physician.

        The Phoenix Institute - The Phases of Treatment

        The Phases of Treatment

          THE PHOENIX INSTITUTE program provides a structured, therapeutic environment for young people to work on problems and family relationships. The program has five phases used to monitor progression through treatment. The clients proceed through each phase at their own pace. A synopsis of each phase can be found  below.

            FIRST PHASE - The client receives help and guidance to define what his/her problems are, to assess how these have affected his/her life and family relationships, and to understand how the substance abuse/behavior interfered with the development of a healthy self-concept. The client lives in a local home with a "host family" who has a PHOENIX INSTITUTE client on an upper phase of treatment. School is provided (during the normal school year) as part of the daily program in the facility.[/list]
              SECOND PHASE - The client continues to work on gaining insight into his/her problems while treatment expands to include developing healthy family relationships. The client may now return to live in the home of his/her natural parents (if a local family and they have opened a host home). Out-of-town clients continue to live in a "host home." The client continues to attend school in the facility.[/list]
                THIRD PHASE - In addition to continuing to work on individual problems and family relationships, the client is encouraged to experience some of the normal social pressures by returning to school or work. If a client does not have a high school diploma or equivalent, he/she is required to attend school.[/list]
                  FOURTH PHASE - The client continues to attend school or work and begins to work on constructive use of leisure time. Forming positive friendships and instilling everyday situations with normal emotions are important. The structure of the program remains in place to allow the client to process these interactions in the proper setting. A minimum of three family conferences are scheduled to evaluate progress.[/list]
                    FIFTH PHASE - This phase is a transitional one in which the client looks toward community support through participation in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or other support groups. Structured leisure time continues as weekends are spent with the client's family. The client will participate in a minimum of one family conference to process appropriately the changes that have begun during treatment, to refocus his/her goals (if necessary),and to finalize family goals.[/list]

                    Living Arrangements

                      The concept of a host home is what makes the rehabilitation at THE PHOENIX INSTITUTE different from other programs. The host home is an integral part of the therapeutic process. The host home provides a safe, family environment where the client returns each night and where they spend their Sundays.

                      The host home is governed by the rules and regulations put forth by the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Child Placing Agency. Each host home is inspected by the Host Home Coordinator or Assistant Coordinator before it is opened to the clients. Also, these homes are inspected on a regular basis after they have been opened as well as on an as needed basis.

                      Each host home is managed by the parents of the clients involved in THE PHOENIX INSTITUTE program. A host home is therapeutic to the clients as well as the host parents. The client benefits in that he/she lives in a home and not an institution. This provides an opportunity to experience family life during treatment and to begin rebuilding healthy relationships.

                      Clients on different phases in the recovery program live together in the same home. This enables the clients to aid each other in recovery by relating personal feelings and experiences in a nurturing atmosphere. The clients on upper phases become role models to those clients in earlier phases in the program

                      The host home provides a therapeutic, enriching, and growth-inducing experience to parents as well. It enables them to live with their child and rebuild their relationships. The host home puts demands on the parents to be good parental models. This requires the parents to change or modify their parenting skills to meet the changing needs of the client in recovery.
