Facility Highlights

  • Wii Therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Guided Meditation


  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Family Programs

    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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Founded in 2002 and located in Edgewood, Md., Phoenix Recovery Center (PRC) offers residential treatment for adults who are struggling with substance misuse disorders. If necessary, medically supervised detoxification is available on-site, making PRC one of 25 (6.1 percent) rehabs in Maryland to offer detox in a residential setting.


Treatment begins with an initial assessment of the individual, which evaluates the client's mental health, medical needs, and substance abuse history. Clients also undergo an initial physical.

Group therapy is the primary treatment modality with individual sessions integrated as needed, and gender-specific groups are offered. Programming also include educational lectures, relapse prevention work, and an introduction to the 12-step model of recovery.

Along with traditional treatment methods, PRC incorporates a range of holistic and alternative therapies, including acupuncture, acudetox, guided meditation, walking groups, aromatherapy, Nintendo Wii therapy, canine therapy, and drum therapy.

For loved ones, PRC also offers a family education program. The four-week family program educates loved ones on the disease of addiction and the process of recovery. Before discharge, continuing care coordinators ensure that all clients leave with a comprehensive aftercare plan.


According to PRC’s website, staff includes a board-certified addictionologist, registered nurses, licensed addiction counselors, and clinical program assistants. PRC is certified by CARF, an accreditation held by 44.3 percent of rehabs in Maryland.


Accommodations at PRC include semi-private bedrooms equipped with bathrooms, complete dining facilities, a comfortable community room, and separate male and female laundry rooms. The facility also offers a wide range of recreational activities, such as basketball, horseshoes, volleyball, and Wii sports.


At the time of this writing, Rehabs.com has received reviews from 11 alumni, mot of whom gave positive feedback. “Staff was great, the facility is clean and I had a great experience there,” J. wrote.

Two loved ones polled on more granular metrics gave neutral to positive ratings to most categories evaluated. In particular they gave high ratings to the facility's holistic offerings (four and five stars), affordability (four and five stars), family participation (four stars), and exercise and leisure options (four stars). They also gave generally positive ratings (three and four stars) for counseling options and staff experience and training.

Secondary sources also revealed positive alumni opinions. On Google reviews, 23 reviewers gave the facility an average rating of 4.4 out of five stars.[1] In a representative review, A.C. wrote, "The staff, counselors, and the director are just great!" The one critique came from D.S. who felt that the "counselers were nice" but thought the facilities were dirty. On its Facebook page, which the facility can manage, 10 individuals gave the facility an average rating of 4.7 out of five stars.[2]


The five loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave more mixed opinions of the facility. In a representative review one loved one, J.L.D., whose son was in the facility at the time of the review, wrote, “I wish i would have found this place 9 yrs ago for my son they are awesome this is one of the best rehabs in maryland.”

However, in a more negative review, loved one M.M. was more critical of the facility, citing the facility's communication policy and lack of family involvement as weaknesses. "Their family program is non-existent even though they say it's one of the best," M.M. wrote.


According to its website, PRC accepts most insurance policies as well as self-pay. HealthGrove indicates that clients can pay with Access to Recovery (ATR) Vouchers, a form of payment accepted at 15.2 percent of rehabs in Maryland.
