description of organisation

Cooperative Phoenix was founded in 1991 as Ente Ausiliario for the rehabilitation and socio-working reintegration of drug-addicted people. In November 2000, following a careful need analysis in collaboration with the Department of Pathological Addictions and the Department of Mental Health of AUSL BA4, Phoenix started providing rehabilitation services in its new headquarter to young people with dual diagnosis problems (people with both problems of drug addiction and mental health).After a first experience of semi-residential service, the cooperative started a new Therapeutic Community with a residential character for people with dual diagnosis. Phoenix employs interactive, inclusive, expressive, artistic, and cultural methodologies aimed at enhancing the rehabilitative function in psychiatric patients with dual disorder. For more than 10 years, Phoenix has been promoting therapeutic interventions with a personal rehabilitative and enabling connotation according to the psychopathological level of the individual patient by constantly stimulating the development of personal and social abilities and building on the improvements and gradual autonomy achieved by the single person. The interventions in question are always structured according to a bio-psycho-social paradigm designed to provide constant support and in-depth elaboration of psychic sufferings.The organisation of the rehabilitative-therapeutic activities structured within and without the premises managed by Phoenix is based on the planning and realisation of rehabilitative and personal projects in accordance between the patient and the socio-sanitary teams responsible at the local level.Phoenix manages a diurnal centre aimed at taking care therapeutically of suffering people.
