23 million Americans suffer from a substance use disorder, but only 10 percent have access to care. Scott Strode tackled the challenges of overcoming addiction firsthand when he combined physical activities and a supportive community to help with his own recovery. That’s what led Strode to create The Phoenix, a sober active community that has helped more than 26,000 people in recovery overcome substance use disorders—with half the relapse rates of top clinical treatment centers.
The Phoenix is one of 115+ organizations supported by Stand Together, a non-profit backed by Charles Koch and a network of donors, to dramatically increase the reach and impact of the people solving the country’s biggest problems.
Stand Together is inviting people across the country to help millions of Americans heal the wounds of addiction. The Koch Network has launched the Giving Together Initiative to match individual donations of up to $1,000 through various campaigns throughout 2019 up to a total of $10 million to groups like The Phoenix.
