Phoenix House Academy on Wallum Lake offers a full spectrum of residential substance abuse treatment services for boys ages 13 to 18. The program helps its clients identify the root of their substance abuse issues, and aims to replace negative behaviors and ways of thinking with ones that are positive and productive. Treatment plans are individualized and family-oriented, and the secluded country setting provides a structured environment in which young residents can work to develop new values and attitudes.

Reviews at a Glance
- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
- Holistic Therapy
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
