Your Self-Care Kit
The self-destruction of active addiction took a lot of energy and commitment. In recovery, we learn to apply those qualities to more worthwhile pursuits; to healing ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Joining forces with others and getting active helps foster a new life, as well as deepens social connections. Since 2006, The Phoenix has been helping people find the strength to rise from the ashes of addiction through the support of those walking the very same path.

Hey there! I'm Victoria, Nutrition Program Manager at Mountainside. Energy bites are perfect for breakfast, post-workout fuel, or a midday pick-me-up snack. Each bite contains omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, dietary fiber and is low in sugar (if you leave out the delish chocolate chips!) This will supply your body with the energy it needs to not only support recovery and kickstart its repair. A delicious snack that's guilt-free!
New experiences can take you to new heights and provide new perspectives. Self-discovery is one of the many gifts of recovery; climbing a mountain or conquering a fear of heights are two examples of obstacles to overcome that inspire personal growth. This kind of growth can occur anytime, anywhere.
