The Phoenix offers a free sober active community to individuals who have suffered from a substance use disorder and to those who choose a sober life. Using a peer support model, we help members heal and rebuild their lives while also striving to eliminate stigma around recovery. The goal of The Phoenix is to help as many people as possible find a clear path to recovery, so we make every effort to remove any barriers to getting involved with our community — this includes financial barriers. We believe that fulfillment in sobriety is found through dreaming what's possible in recovery and by giving back. So, we don't just take you along for the ride, but rather also equip you with the skills necessary to live your sober dreams with The Phoenix community.
