Our programs include: cooking classes, exercise programs, fitness outings, and health & wellness skills groups. At CHEEERS, we want you to learn how to select and prepare nutritious foods on a budget, incorporate exercise into your daily routine, and show you how caring for your body helps to calm the mind. We offer Zumba classes, trips to a fitness center, dance classes, and even a kickball tournament. Look through our monthly schedule and join one of our health & wellness programs. 

Bus Mobility Program  - Getting around Phoenix is easier than you may think. If you are interested in traveling on the Valley Metro system or trying out the light rail, CHEEERS has a program. Our Bus Mobility classes teach you how easy it can be to get across town or to the store. Participants learn how to read bus books and plan a route. Once you have decided where you want or need to go, a CHEEERS Bus Mobility Specialist will come along to support you on your journey. Classes are held once per week for an hour. Check the monthly schedule for days and times. Plus, watch for our group trips, Bus Mobility Outings, where we travel together in and around Phoenix, such as Arizona Diamondbacks games!

Expressions of Hope  – Art is a wonderful way to express yourself and CHEEERS has a beautiful studio for you to do just that. Our Expressions of Hope program offers daily classes that focus on healthy ways to express emotion through art, crafts and music. Topics range from building confidence and reducing worry, to dealing with frustration and finding alternatives to self-harm. The art projects are fun, imaginative and always creative. Every Wednesday is Open Studio for those just interested in enjoying a moment of artistic expression. CHEEERS invites you to join in for painting, beading, journaling, or whatever you would like to create. Look through the weekly class schedule and come join us. Click here for the monthly art calendar of classes.

Women’s Boundaries -  Our Women’s Boundaries group is back by popular demand. This group specifically addresses the unique needs and issues for women in recovery.  Balancing relationships, parenting, self image, stigmas, gender roles, trauma and setting boundaries are just a few of the topics we discuss in this group.  Educational topics are also reviewed however, this is primarily an opportunity for women to bond, find commonality, and create strong recovery connections. 

Men’s Health and Wellness  - Like our Women’s Boundaries group, men also have unique needs and experiences in recovery. Our men’s health and wellness group explores topics of wellness in a broad sense which includes managing and expressing emotion, maintaining health through nutrition and exercise and finding support through connections with male role models and peers. This group offers both education and opportunities for men to share with each other their personal struggles and successes in recovery.
