Located in a peaceful, rural setting in southern Rhode Island, Phoenix House Exeter Center offers individualized treatment for men aimed at helping them to build productive lives free of addiction. Staff works closely with family members to help support clients on their path to recovery, and care ranges from medically-monitored detox to short- and long-term residential treatment.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
