At Phoenix Futures, we have a wide range of residential treatment and detox options to suit the needs of each individual. 



Our range of specialised programmes allow you to choose  which programme and location suits an individual  best in achieving sustained recovery and a meaningful happy future.

We are able to provide a free therapeutic detox before offering 3 month and 6 month placements in comfortable and modern residential services, while helping each resident to acquire the tools needed to live a substance free life.

Each of our Residential Services has Bridge Housing for residents to move-on to after completing their treatment. Bridge Housing provides step-down support for residents, helping them to integrate back into society. For those wishing to return home, our staff offer support and guidance to help residents find suitable, post-treatment housing.


Specialist Services

Our range of residential services includes:

  • Scottish Residential Service: established service with excellent links to the local community

  • Sheffield Residential Service: unique therapeutic environments on the edge of the Peak District

  • Wirral Residential Service: suburban service where residents have the opportunity to care for pets and animals

  • National Specialist Family Service: secure homely environment that enables parent to continue living with their children while receiving treatment

Our competitive prices include a supervised detox and move-on housing.


Whole person approach

At Phoenix we know that recovery is not just a service but a way of life, we underpin all of our therapeutic programmes with Recovery through Nature, the Arts and Sports activities which may include conservation work in the beautiful countryside surrounding our residential, opportunities to use get their creative juices flowing with arts projects and an annual 5-day sailing trip.

Residents are offered support around numeracy and literacy and we run in-house accredited qualifications which give people the chance to leave treatment with a formal qualification. All of our Residential Services have strong links with their local communities, allowing staff to support residents to find volunteering and employment opportunities when they leave treatment.

Recovery is not just about the person in treatment but also effects their friends, family and loved one. We run monthly F.L.A.M.E.S. (Family and Loved-ones Accessing Mutual and Emotion Support) groups in our  Scottish, Sheffield and Wirral services. These groups offer family members support and guidance and help them to understand the hard-work that goes into someone’s recovery. Our staff also support residents with contact with social services and visits with children and other family members.

Our range of post-treatment housing options allows people who have left the residential service to choose suitable, supportive accommodation which enables them to maintain their long-term recovery.

At our Wirral service we uniquely offer clients the opportunity to bring their dogs into treatment with them to live in our on-site kennels, keeping clients and their four-legged friends together.

This wrap-around support for the whole-person has helped us achieve completion rates for residential treatment of 66% over the last 6 months and creates the best possible opportunity for a life free of substance misuse.


Experts in Recovery for more than 50 years

Since bringing the first Therapeutic Community (TC) residential service to the UK we have gained over 50 years’ experience helping people to overcome their substance misuse issues. Since 1988 we have been a registered Housing Association, which gives us the unique advantage of being able to provide suitable, staged move-on accommodation for our service users after they leave one of our residential services.

We have developed our Recovery Housing Pathway model which supports those in recovery from the beginning of their journey all the way through to living independent, abstinent lives. Read more about our Recovery Housing Pathway here.
