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 host daily, FREE classes and events where the only requirement to attend is at least 48 hours of continuous sobriety.
We've recently expanded to Long Beach and are seeking a dynamic cohort of volunteers committed to sober living to facilitate classes. Class formats include:
-Martial Arts -Boxing -Pilates -Hiking - Walk/Running - Dance Fitness - Community Fitness - Improv -Yoga -Pilats
Volunteers are required to: -Complete background check - Completes 3 Phoenix Classes before volunteering ( we have virtual classes) - Attend a 90 minute online training ( two for lead instructors)
If you're interested in donating 2 hours a week to make a positive impact in the lives of millions, lending your love of fitness and passion for the recovery community, and making lasting connections please contact us to start volunteering
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 ultimate impact Phoenix seeks is to help individuals not only achieve sobriety, but to thrive in recovery. The Phoenix Model is unique because of its non-clinical approach that uses the power of human connection and positive coping mechanisms through physical activity to help people heal from the underlying causes of addiction.
Phoenix peer instructors use an experiential approach that leverages innate goal-setting association with engagement in physical activities while facilitating a positive and supportive experience, allowing team members to shed the defense mechanisms that have historically kept them isolated. By bringing people together, Phoenix creates a community where people can heal, obtain essential life skills, and practice effective social interaction. Research suggests facilitating physical activity, social connection and community are potent strategies for promoting health and healing from disease.
