Dedicated To Teens
At Phoenix House Texas, we are dedicated to helping youth, families, and communities challenged by substance use disorders and related mental health conditions by promoting health and well-being.
For over 28 years, PHT has offered a continuum of care to under-served communities, spanning early prevention to intensive residential treatment, serving primarily underserved communities and never turning anyone away regardless of ability to pay. PHT acknowledges that the most pressing need and the most effective opportunity to decrease health disparities is through positive prevention. Therefore, we have pivoted our efforts to focus entirely on our substance use prevention and mental health education services, aiming to proactively combat these issues before they start by improving the mental health and well-being of underserved youth and communities.
We meet our people where they are by providing school and community-based substance use prevention for youth in grades Pre-K through 12 in Houston, Austin, and Dallas. We passionately believe that effective prevention supports individuals to thrive, living meaningful lives in sobriety and fully participating in their families, jobs, community, economy, and society.
With the increasing rate of substance use concerns—particularly the deadly rise of fentanyl—it is important now more than ever that we provide youth the education and healthy skills needed to proactively prevent substance use and improve their overall mental health and well-being.
