Phoenix’s Therapeutic Recovery Housing Program

Recovery from addiction is defined as a dynamic change process through which individuals improve their physical health, mental health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential. Phoenix’s holistic recovery approach involves improved functioning across all sectors of person’s life such as work, physical health, and relationships with friends and family.

Sometimes people need to be removed from their current living environment to increase their chances of living life in recovery. One essential resource that enables individuals to achieve and maintain a life in recovery is Phoenix’s Therapeutic Recovery Housing Program (PTRS).

Phoenix’s Therapeutic Recovery Housing Program creates a continuum of care where individuals improve their physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being and gain skills and resources to re-engage in the community.

This unique program provides integrated, diagnosis-specific treatment to help clients manage the day-to-day challenges of life. Lacking certain skills can profoundly affect a person's course of employment, finances, relationships, and general outlook. Phoenix’s Living Skills housing program examines 12 basic skills that many people take for granted.


The Personal Growth Program is an evidence-based curriculum that covers the internal skills needed to be a positive member of a community.


Topics include:

  • Making Decisions

  • Refusal Skills

  • Interpersonal Skills

  • Values and Responsibilities

  • Setting and Attaining Goals

  • Parenting and Child Development

The Practical Guidance Program provides information on the day-to-day external skills needed to live a healthy life.


Topics include:

  • Hygiene and Self-Care

  • Sexual Health

  • Looking for Work

  • Education

  • Managing Money

  • Securing Housing

  • Education

  • Parenting and Child Development Skills

  • Domestic Violent Program

By the end of the client’s stay with us, they will have learned, “A new normal.” Learning how to identify the underlying reasons for their addiction and restructuring their thoughts in hopes of realizing that there are healthier ways to cope with life besides turning to alcohol and/or other drugs.

Why Phoenix’s Therapeutic Recovery Housing Program?

Phoenix’s Therapeutic Recovery Housing Program (PTRHS) is a safe, healthy, substance-free living environment that supports individuals, through treatment, while they recover from addiction and mental health. We customize our program to individual needs. All our treatment programs are evidence-based and are supported and connected to services that promote long-term recovery. Our housing benefits individuals in recovery by reinforcing a substance-free lifestyle and providing the ability to reset, restart, and live a new normal.

The length of stay is determined by the client’s level of care. Our recovery housing is a part of our continuum of care, which includes outpatient services (individual/group counseling), peer recovery support, case management, primary care, psychiatry, mental health, addiction, housing, aftercare, and other treatments.

The Phases of Housing

Phase 1 (8 weeks or longer)

During this phase, the clients will learn about what to expect from treatment. Clients are required to attend Phoenix Integrated Health’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) which consists of group counseling up to five days a week as well as individual counseling. The clients may also see a provider for Medication Assisted Treatment, psychiatric services, and/or primary care services. The client will meet with a case manager for a Needs Assessment as well as complete a variety of screening tools to assist in determining the appropriate treatment. These screenings will include mental health and medical screenings. Clients are also expected to attend support groups such as a 12-Step group. The clients will also participate in community service.

Phase 2 (13 week or longer)

During this phase, clients are either transitioned to another sober living home or back at home. Clients are required to attend Phoenix Integrated Health’s Outpatient Program (OP) at least 2-3 days a week for individual and group counseling, as well as any other appointments they may have. Group counseling in this phase focuses on Relapse Management. Clients are encouraged to continue attending 12-step meetings or another type of support group. Clients will start working on vocational and career development. The time spent in this phase is based on the client’s progress.

Phase 3 (13 weeks or longer)

Clients are required to attend the Phoenix Integrated Health program 1-2 times per week for group and/or individual counseling, as well as other appointments. In addition, clients are encouraged to attend 12-step or other support group meetings. Clients may be employed prior to beginning this phase, but if they are not, they will continue with career development.

Exceptions to the requirements of each phase are on a case by case basis. Staff members work to individualize treatment, so requirements for a given client may involve more clinical/medical support and support group meetings, depending on the clinical situation.

Why is Recovery Housing Important?   


Individuals with histories of addiction lack essential recovery capital, which inhibits their ability to secure stable housing. Recovery capital refers to the internal and external resources needed to help individuals initiate recovery.

Phoenix’s Therapeutic Recovery Housing Program is not just about housing, it is about building a foundation for supporting a life of recovery. We have different stages of housing for a client’s level of care and stages of addiction. We transition clients from different stages of housing to create a sustainable outcome for recovery

Without the availability of flexible, supportive, recovery-focused housing options, people are less likely to recover from addiction and are more likely to face continued issues that impact their well-being, families, and communities. These issues include higher health care costs stemming from unaddressed substance use; high use of emergency departments and public health care systems; higher risk for involvement with law enforcement and incarceration; and an inability to obtain and maintain employment. These challenges are compounded by an overall lack of affordable housing nationwide.

Further, because most federal policy does not classify addiction as a disability, individuals with histories of addiction cannot access the same income, employment, and housing benefits available to people with mental illness or other disabilities

What is the Evidence that Recovery Housing is Effective?

Research indicates that recovery housing provides individuals with substance use disorders a greater chance to stabilize and sustain long-term recovery.

People with addictions usually face barriers due to criminal backgrounds; low or no income; poor rental history; poor credit; limited education; and minimal work history. As a result, many of these individuals have difficulty accessing private or public rental housing or obtaining mortgages.

Individuals with histories of addiction often face more challenges in achieving long-term recovery than those who do not live in recovery-oriented environments. Recovery housing has been associated with numerous positive outcomes including:

· Decreased substance use


· Reduced probability of relapse/reoccurrence

· Lower rates of incarceration

· Higher income

· Increased employment

· Improved family functioning


A major factor in the success of recovery housing is the ability for clients to build a peer recovery support, which is a key component of recovery housing and has been shown to directly affect recovery capital, recovery outcomes, and help to support continuous, long-term recovery. Social support, such as that provided through 12-step and other mutual aid programs can also help people maintain recovery.
