ABOUT PHOENIX HOUSE JAMES OTTMAR RESIDENTIAL CENTER FOR WOMEN

Located in Providence, R.I., Phoenix House’s James Ottmar Residential Center for Women provides gender-specific residential treatment for women struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health issues. One of over 130 facilities operated by Phoenix House, one of the largest addiction treatment organizations in the U.S. The residential center does not offer detoxification services, though the Phoenix house offers a medical detox unit at its Exeter location.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial behavioral and psychiatric assessment to help clinicians develop an individualized plan of care. The length of treatment (30, 90, or 180 days) is determined by eligibility requirements, clinical needs, and third-party referrals. According to the facility’s website, the residential center’s programming is designed to “help women develop trust, self-esteem, and personal responsibility.”

The James Ottmar Residential Center utilizes a range of evidence-based treatment methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), to help clients identify and change destructive thinking patterns that contribute to addictive behavior. During treatment, residents adhere to a structured schedule of individual, family, and group therapy sessions that address issues common among women struggling with addiction. Issues addressed may include abuse, trauma, domestic violence, parenting, and self-esteem.

In addition to counseling sessions, residents attend educational classes on relapse prevention and life skills training. In addition, Phoenix House’s programming introduces residents to 12-step principles and practices. Clients struggling with co-occurring issues may also receive ongoing medication management and regular psychiatric evaluations.
