The Phoenix


The Phoenix’s innovative approach to linking peers in recovery to a sober active community free of any barriers, is leading the recovery movement in the Pikes Peak region and breaking the stigma around substance use disorder. The transformative power of physical fitness combined with the emotional support of peers allows for members to find the emotional and physical strength needed to stay sober. We DO recover!


Phoenix answers the question of “What’s next?” for individuals and families recovering from substance use disorders by fostering an environment that helps participants find purpose and hope in a supportive group of peers. Phoenix is unique because of its non-clinical approach using physical activity as a tool to help to foster a community where people can truly heal from the underlying causes of addiction.


Since we offer free programming, in order to expand our reach and impact, we need to expand our resources. With an annual cost of $500 per individual, we aim to increase membership by 200 in 2018

“At Phoenix, I found freedom and hope in ways I didn’t before — a new identity, relationships and outlets to live an awesome sober life. They showed me I am someone other than just my addiction. I discovered a new me so I could let go of my addiction.” — Gina Swanson
