Who We Are
The Phoenix is an innovative nonprofit organization that helps people recover from substance use disorder and heal by leveraging the intrinsic transformative power of social connection and activity. Through group fitness, meditation, running, climbing, hiking, social events, and other meaningful activities, The Phoenix combats the isolation, shame, and hopelessness that often surrounds substance use and perpetuates relapse. All our classes and events are FREE with 48 hours of continuous sobriety.
If you’re in recovery from substance use disorder and have the desire to live a sober life, we will help you find strength and a new community of friends to support your journey.
Our members often say that they come for the workout but stay for the friendships. By meeting each person where they are and believing in them until they can believe in themselves, we create an environment where healing happens and recovery flourishes. We help thousands of individuals rise every day from the ashes of addiction and find the hope and support they need to thrive in recovery.
“Pride in my recovery was the most important muscle that I strengthened in those first classes, and connection with the Phoenix community is how I grew stronger” – Liz M.
