National Capital Treatment & Recovery’s Board of Directors at the organization’s 60th anniversary celebration on May 3, 2022

National Capital Treatment and Recovery (NCTR), formerly Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic and one of the oldest nonprofits continuously operating in Arlington County, has been a vital resource for individuals suffering from substance use disorders. The organization was established in 1962 by a group of citizens concerned about local men suffering with alcoholism. Today, NCTR is a nationally accredited organization providing a range of programs to meet the needs of men and women, serving over 2,000 individuals and their families each year.

NCTR is proud of its incredibly diverse and well-qualified staff. Some have celebrated 25 years or more with the organization—a testament to the dedication of the Board of Directors and executive leadership. With a strong internship program, students get hands-on experience. In the past 20 years, over 600 interns have come through the program and many are hired as permanent employees. 

Debby Taylor, NCTR’s President and CEO since 1989 says, “We are continuously expanding and adapting our services to ensure our programs are providing the most up-to-date, evidence-based treatment that meets the needs of our patients. Over the past five years we have treated over 8,000 patients.”

NCTR’s programs include residential treatment and several levels of outpatient treatment. Programs incorporate counseling services to address trauma and co-occurring mental health disorders and help patients develop the tools to succeed in recovery. Because addiction affects the whole family, NCTR also offers weekly virtual group sessions so loved ones can learn how to support their family member. These services produce proven results—the agency’s outcomes consistently exceed national averages.

Over the past five years we have treated over 8,000 patients.
