Phoenix Academy Selected by SAMHSA as First Therapeutic Community Program in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP)

NREPP is a searchable database listing substance and mental health treatment and prevention interventions found to be effective by independent expert scientific review. An external evaluation of one of the Phoenix Academies assessed adolescents' background, substance use, physical health, risk behaviors, mental health, environment, legal, and vocational needs using GAIN (Global Appraisal of Individual Needs), a validated assessment and treatment monitoring tool.
