Pioneer Human Services Acquires Phoenix Recovery Services, LLC’s Counseling and Treatment Services in Mount Vernon, Washington
A smooth transition is slated with current staff integrating into new owner’s team of professionals. 

SEATTLE, WA, March 12, 2019 – Pioneer Human Services (Pioneer) announced the successful completion of the acquisition of Phoenix Recovery Services’ counseling and treatment services in Mount Vernon, Washington. This addition gives Pioneer its fourth outpatient clinic in Washington state, with their other clinics located in Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane.

Phoenix Recovery Services, LLC, has been providing counseling and treatment services since 1999. The clinic offers assessments, in addition to individual and group counseling. They are the sole provider for the Skagit County Syringe Exchange program. 

Karen Lee, Pioneer CEO stated, “We are thrilled to add Phoenix Recovery Services  and their talented team of professionals to the Pioneer family. The outpatient clinic is a vital service to help meet the needs of the opioid crisis in the region. It will also be an excellent resource for people who have completed treatment in our other programs to continue to get the support they need in the community.”

Pioneer provides counseling and treatment, housing and employment services to justice-involved individuals and those struggling with substance use disorders (SUD). The organization started as one halfway house in Seattle in 1963 and now provides services in over 50 locations across Washington state. They operate Pioneer Center North, the Skagit County Crisis Center and the Skagit County In-Jail Treatment Program in Skagit County.

Corky Hundahl, owner and administrator of Phoenix Recovery Services said, “I feel very excited to have Phoenix transitioning to Pioneer. My goal has always been to have Phoenix continue long after I am gone. It is gratifying to have found another agency with a responsive approach to an individual’s counseling and treatment need.  Additionally, we both believe in working in partnership with allied community providers to deliver quality individualized supports and services.” Hundahl added, “Phoenix and Pioneer support representing behavioral health in the community as a treatable and manageable condition that an individual can recover from and live a healthy life.”

Pioneer’s current behavioral health programs in the state include in-jail programs, therapeutic drug court programs, residential treatment programs for chronic SUD and co-occurring residential programs (mental health and SUD), outpatient clinics, detox and crisis centers, a sobering center and a diversion center for homeless individuals with an SUD.
