In-Custody Services for Youth & Adults

Our programs prepare inmates for successful return to society, to live healthy, drug-free and productive lives.

Since 1996, Phoenix House California has been working in California prisons, jails, and other correctional settings, offering a variety of support programs to hundreds of men each year, including: intensive cognitive behavioral treatment for substance use disorders and addiction, criminal thinking patterns, anger management, as well as teaching life skills and instilling positive, pro-social values. We also offer in custody substance use disorder treatment and mental health services to male adolescents at the Tulare County Juvenile Detention Facility in Visalia to assist struggling teens to change so they may live productive crime-and-drug-free lives. Services include: assessment, treatment planning, case management, individual and group counseling, and intensive family services.

Correctional treatment programs are proven to lower recidivism rates by over 10%.

PHCA reentry programs in CDCR prisons serve inmates who are within four years of release from incarceration, allowing them to gain new skills to help them to succeed after returning home.
