Who We Are

In 2012 RICAODD joined forces with Phoenix House New England.  Phoenix House provides a broad spectrum of services to adults and adolescents, including:  medically monitored detoxification, residential and outpatient treatment, education and prevention services, gender-specific treatment for women, temporary shelter for adolescents, and case management for court-involved adolescents at the Rhode Island Juvenile Drug Court.  Phoenix House is dedicated to preserving the name and mission of RICAODD.  Together, RICAODD and Phoenix House provide a full continuum of care to those in need of treatment and recovery support. 


With a professional staff including the Director of Community Housing, Housing Coordinator and Veteran Case Manager, RICAODD offers a statewide, 24-hour toll-free helpline staffed with trained volunteers.  In addition, RICAODD operates nine recovery houses in Cranston, Pawtucket and Portsmouth.  RICAODD is involved in the recovery community through its participation in events in Rhode Island throughout the year.  RICAODD works with treatment organizations statewide to provide outstanding recovery housing and support services.


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
