MER is proud to support our Nonprofit of the Month for August, 2022, Phoenix Multisport. The Phoenix’s mission is to build a sober active community that fuels resilience and harnesses the transformational power of connection so that together we rise, recover, and live.

Phoenix Multisport is a sober active community that provides free, active and engaging
programming – such as rock climbing, CrossFit, yoga, dance classes and social events – to anyone in
recovery from a substance use disorder or who chooses to live a sober lifestyle. Phoenix is not a
replacement for treatment, nor is it simply a “sober gym.” Instead, Phoenix picks up where treatment
services leave off by offering a welcoming, safe and supportive community to recover and heal, free to
anyone with at least 48 hours of continuous sobriety. Recognizing the interpersonal trauma and social
isolation are at the core of many people’s addiction, all programming is aimed at bringing individuals
into a community that instills hope instead of fear and fosters personal growth without judgment.
Phoenix instructors are peers who have lived experiences through their own recovery journey or
personal connection to the mission, which promotes trust, hope and emotional safety.
