Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $626,044)

Using the Phoenix House model program recognized by SAMHSA's NREPP, this project will provide substance abuse treatment for 48 North Texas male and female adolescents. Additionally, Phoenix House proposes establishing an outreach, education, prevention, intervention and outpatient Success Center in Dallas County to serve Dallas area youth and families and outpatient location in Denton County. Through this Success Center, Phoenix House will bring together a coordinated group of multiple agencies to promote drug-free communities. The purpose of this project is to offer a healthy after school environment for at risk youth and those identified as needing special services. The goals of this project are to reduce drug use among youth, return youth to a stable living environment, engage youth in school or job, and reduce the impact on the juvenile justice system. The following data will be measured to determine performance: the number of participants that stay in treatment of a minimum of 90 days; the number of participants in school or employment after being discharged; number of participants abstinent from alcohol and illicit substances 60 days prior to follow-up interview and the number of participants that maintain a stable, non-institutional living situation post discharge.
