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 Los Angeles and are seeking a dynamic cohort of volunteers committed to sober living to facilitate classes. Class formats include:
Volunteer opportunities are located in: Long Beach North Hollywood Downtown LA Pasadena Culver City Santa Monica and ONLINE!
We're searching for dedicated and friendly volunteer to assist our Walk/Run sessions at the Culver City Stairs every Thursday evening from 5-630pm! If you enjoy walking, jogging or running and connecting with people, then this is right opportunity for you!
COVID-19 NOTICE: In ensuring our volunteers' and team members' safety, we provide protective equipment such as masks, wipes and sanitizers. We also follow social distancing guidelines (at least 6-8 feet apart). We are on watch for the rates of cases and will pause outdoor functions if cases spike. We will communicate this our volunteers consistently.

NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP
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.
