The service is recently refurbished and wheel-chair accessible. Our team of drug and alcohol workers provide personalised support through one-to-ones, group, and alternative therapies. Residents spend their first few weeks in a separate welcome house while they settle into their new surroundings and then move into the main house for the rest of the programme, which lasts between 3 and 6 months.

Phoenix Futures works with service users around childcare matters and is keen to enable children to visit residents when appropriate. The presence of children places responsibilities on Phoenix Futures irrespective of who is nominally responsible for the care and supervision of a child during a visit. Visits of children are planned, and the frequency, pattern and nature of these visits discussed with the resident, care manager/referring agency. There is a designated area supplied within the service for children visiting.
Phoenix Futures Glasgow have excellent support pathways for those wishing to relocate and for those wishing to stay in Glasgow. Following the main programme we can offer re-entry housing, where you will live with like-minded peers who have all gone through the programme. After re-entry we have three supported housing houses nearby, and following this you can access floating support where you will be supported in your own home. If you wish to move back to your home area we can support you in finding suitable accommodation.
Our duty of care extends to ensuring as far as possible the continuing safety of the service user. Those evicted from services are given as much onwards assistance as is practicable (in liaison with the care manager, where appropriate). Information is given on discharge to minimise the risk of harm and drug overdose. This is in form of our Leavers pack which every resident is given on discharge.
Phoenix Futures offers a resettlement accommodation service to residents requiring higher support to re-integrate into the wider community. Residents can move into supported accommodation and live semi-independently supported by Phoenix Futures staff.

Individuals with severe mental health problems can not be accepted
he type of substance used and the nature of the individual's dependence are assessed in the context of their needs for an intensive programme. The pattern, frequency and seriousness of the type of offending in question as well as the circumstances of the offences and when they occurred will inform the risk assessment process. Phoenix Futures recognises that there are varying degrees and types of mental illness. A needs and risk assessment will determine whether the service can meet individual needs. The offer of a place may be refused or deferred if the individual's health is beyond a level that can be provided for. Individuals with a physical or sensory disability are assessed to establish whether the environment will be suitable for them. Since the programme is predominately groupwork based, prospective service users need to demonstrate that they are able to communicate in English. This requirement is balanced with a commitment to equal opportunities and a respect for a range of cultures and beliefs.
Phoenix Futures may exclude individuals who:
*have a history of arson
*have a history of sexual offences
*have a repetitive or current history of self-harm or attempted suicide.
All cases of arson etc are looked at individually
