Resocialization Programs (new)
Phoenix Drop-In Center
The Phoenix Center is a peer run drop in center, open daily, for persons with a history of mental health disorders. The Center is a place for consumers to socialize, relax, enjoy the company and acceptance of others, and gain support in their recovery efforts. Educational programs, wellness programs, holiday celebrations, and a host of activities are offered at the center. In recent years, increased focus has been on promoting a welcoming environment, developing committees for fundraising and consumer governance, and creating more volunteer and employment opportunities through the center.
This past year, with the support of Beaver County Behavioral Health, we installed a peer-run laundry in the center and expanded the center renovating our second floor to include a coffee shop area.
A social activities event held once a month for persons with a history of a mental health disorder. The emphasis of this event, usually a dance with a DJ and refreshments, is on socialization, acceptance, and isolation deterrence. Transportation is provided for the participants.
