The Derek Jeter Center
“What Phoenix House has accomplished over the years is remarkable. Phoenix House continues to change lives and we’re dedicated to being partners for years to come.”
Derek Jeter, Founder
Turn 2 Foundation, Inc.
healing is our passion
In 2008, the Turn 2 Foundation aligned its mission with Phoenix House Florida to create the Derek Jeter Center, a comprehensive outpatient program that serves the youth in the Tampa Bay community. The Derek Jeter Center has since helped hundreds of young individuals reach their full potential. Today, within a newly renovated state-of-the-art treatment center, the Derek Jeter Center proudly serves more than 300 adolescents annually and has helped more than 5,000 young men and women overcome substance use issues and transform their lives for the better.
The Right Care, Right Now
Committed to Quality Care.
The Derek Jeter Center is committed to providing young individuals with the quality care, effective treatment, and family-based support network they deserve. Many young men and women need assistance with health education, family support, co-occuring mental health conditions, and other challenges and we provide the tailored treatment plans they need.
At Phoenix House Florida, our outstanding staff of healthcare professionals are committed to all aspects of a teen’s care and we offer a variety of treatment plans that work for adolescents, including:
- Research-based treatment programs
- Cognitive behavioral therapy sessions
- Motivational therapy techniques
- Health education seminars
- Life-training workshops
- Active learning opportunities
- Family and peer support programs
Family is everything
We provide a supportive environment to all our patients and offer family-based therapy that can positively impact adolescents seeking treatment while bringing their family closer together. Our programs put a strong focus on family involvement, as it’s our mission to heal family relationships affected by substance use while focusing on the long-term health and wellness of the individual seeking treatment. We believe strongly that the unwavering support of family, peers, loved ones, and healthcare professionals will provide our youth with the ongoing support they need to live their best life.
Regain control of Your Life
The DJC in Brandon offers customized outpatient (OP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) for teens age 13 and older. We focus on healthy, positive life choices and encourage patients to identify and maximize their own individual strengths.
At the DJC, teens confront the underlying causes of their addiction and regain control of their lives by building support networks to help sustain recovery. The program’s emphasis on family involvement helps mend family relationships while healing the wounds inflicted by drugs and alcohol.
We firmly believe that cost should not be an issue for a teen to access treatment so we offer many avenues to cover the expense. We are an in-network provider for most insurance carriers, Medicaid, offer an affordable private pay rate and have access to numerous other county, state and local funding.
