Phoenix Rising Behavioral Health Care Services Philosophy

The Vision of Phoenix Rising is to create a safe environment where each individual may rise from their past to a new and brighter future. Our Mission is to provide the best clinical care rooted in safety, security, attachment, and including current industry standards.

Areas of Specialization

  • Intensive Outpatient
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

ABOUT PHOENIX RISING BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE SERVICES

Located in the Orange County community of Ladera Ranch, Phoenix Rising Behavioral Health Care Services offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adult men and women struggling with substance abuse issues. Those with co-occurring mental health disorders are welcomed.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at Phoenix Rising combines evidence-based practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), with cutting-edge research on the neurobiological basis of addiction. The program also utilizes motivational interviewing (MI) and 12-step programming, and limits groups to a maximum of 10 participants. Additional treatment includes hot yoga, equine therapy, and community integration activities.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes counselors, doctors, behavioral therapists, a psychologist and licensed marriage and family therapist, along with a CEO with more than 25 years in recovery.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni reviews are currently limited, however those that are available paint a largely positive picture. Four of the reviews left on Rehabs.com to date gave the facility a perfect five out of five overall rating. One alum, Steph, praised the program for its personalized approach. “It is such a intimate and caring program and for those who are motivated for treatment and change,” she told Rehabs.com. “The group sizes are small and I was able to meet with my therapist 2 times a week and really get some good work on myself done.”

The quality of the treatment, and specifically the caring staff, found its way into multiple reviews, including alum A.W. who wrote: “I have never experienced such individualized attention and support that is not only genuine but also trusting and caring.”

On Google, Phoenix Rising received a perfect average five-star rating based on five user reviews to date, and on Facebook, they received two five-star reviews and a one-star review.[1][2] Grateful reviewers praised the staff in particular for their care and expertise.

Phoenix Rising is more than a treatment facility, it is a safe haven and personalized culture of support, openess, and complete personalized coaching. My experience has been nothing short of amazing. It is not only run by experts in the field of addiction and recovery; but also, the journey evolves into individual growth and connections that create a bond of family. I have never experienced such individualized attention and support that is not only genuine but also trusting and caring. For anyone who is looking for something more than just a treatment center, counseling, or therapy- I found Phoenis Rising to become a place that I could call home. Everyday I become a little better, because I know that they believe in me and hold me accountable to at least trying.

I had a wonderful and informative experience at Phoenix Rising. The therapists and counselors were very knowledgeable and forthcoming with information, suggestions, and feedback. I enjoyed the groups as well as the individual therapy!

Hands down a very well maintained and structured environment when it comes to working an iop/op program. The owner and his wife know exactly what they are doing, and know how to do it right. Much love and respect for this program.

I have attended a few programs over the past couple of years and Phoenix Rising is the BEST program In my opinion. The owners are great and they really care about the patients at Phoenix Rising. It is such a intimate and caring program and for those who are motivated for treatment and change. The group sizes are small and I was able to meet with my therapist 2 times a week and really get some good work on myself done. THERE IS NO OTHER PROGRAM LIKE THIS!!
