Our Roots

Founded in 2008, the Derek Jeter Center at Phoenix House Florida was named in honor of baseball legend, Derek Jeter to acknowledge the generous support and contributions of over $1 million from Mr. Jeter and the Turn 2 Foundation.

With the generosity of the Foundation, The Derek Jeter Center facility was able to double its treatment capacity providing essential resources to families throughout the State of Florida. Over the last decade, Phoenix House Florida in partnership with the Turn 2 Foundation has been able to serve over 5,000 youth and help transform their lives for the better and motivate them to pursue healthy, successful lives.

Healing Together

Our comprehensive outpatient services include treatment and counseling to help teens and their families manage and cope with substance use and related mental health conditions. In this program, teens confront the underlying causes of their addiction and regain control of their lives by breaking free from addiction and building support networks to help sustain recovery. The program’s emphasis on family involvement helps mend family relationships while healing the wounds inflicted by substance use. 

The Right Care, Right Now

At Phoenix House Florida, each individual is guaranteed the highest quality of care, delivered with professionalism and respect.  We pride ourselves on providing outstanding and accessible substance use treatment. Convenient hours make treatment accessible to working adults and students when they need it.

Derek Jeter/Hillsborough Education Foundation Scholarship

Administered by the Hillsborough Education Foundation, the scholarship is awarded each year to a high school graduate who demonstrates academic excellence, participates in extracurricular activities and is active in community service. The scholarship provides $1,000 per year toward the student’s college tuition.

In 2015, Turn 2 launched a new initiative to benefit young people at the Derek Jeter Center at Phoenix House. Since 2015, one of two annual Derek Jeter/Hillsborough Education Foundation Scholarships will be awarded to a graduate of the Derek Jeter Center at Phoenix House in Tampa, Florida.

The first scholarship was awarded in 2004.

How Can We Help?

The Derek Jeter Center

The Derek Jeter Center Adolescent program in Brandon, FL provides comprehensive outpatient services that help families deal with teen substance use and related mental health conditions.

At Your House

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to recovery. Outpatient treatment must follow a continuum of care that starts with a thorough needs assessment and ends with recovery monitoring.

At Our House

For some patients, stepping away from the buzz of everyday life is the only way to make a full recovery. Inpatient treatments help patients refocus their recovery efforts to achieve positive, long-lasting outcomes.
