Phoenix Futures is in the unique position of being both a substance misuse service provider and a Housing Association. This means that whilst inappropriate housing can be a risk to recovery, we are able to provide recovery-friendly housing that supports people throughout the different stages of their recovery journey. We can add capacity and specialism to local housing provision with tailored housing ranging from residential treatment to independent living. We do this within a budget to suit every client based on their need.
Service users and local housing providers are able to use all, or just one part of our provision, as appropriate for local need.
Our Recovery Housing Pathway has four stages:
- Residential Service
- Supported Housing
- Recovery Housing
- Independent Living
We have a range of residential treatment options to suit an individual’s needs. We are able to provide a therapeutic detox before offering 3-month and 6-month placements in comfortable residential services. Each resident, with support from staff and peers, is able to acquire the tools needed to live a substance free life. Our range of residential services enables our service users to choose which programme and location suits them best in achieving sustained recovery and a meaningful and happy future.

The next step in our Recovery Housing Provision. Supported Housing provides opportunities for residents to develop life skills while in a supportive environment. Residents must learn how to maintain a tenancy and live by the rules of the house, learning to cope with the pressures of life without resorting to drugs or alcohol. Residents are encouraged to fill their week with meaningful activities including attending college, volunteering and working towards gaining employment. There are qualified staff to provide specialist support during core hours and an on-call provision during weekend if residents need extra support.

Recovery Housing provides a self-supported environment. Residents are encouraged to gain their National Vocational Qualification in Peer Mentoring and work towards meaningful employment. Support can be accessed on-call, enabling residents to develop greater independence, maintain a tenancy, and live with others. Residents are encouraged to find meaningful employment and prepare to move on into independent accommodation.

Through our independent living, residents who have the skills to maintan their recovery more independently can benefit from a landlord that understands their recovery journey and issues they may face in every day life. Residents have the opportunity to provide mentoring to others in recovery in the community, and whilst they do not have to move on from independent living accommodation, they make the choice when appropriate.
