Motor City Recovery Night, Celebrating Sobriety and Breaking the Stigma of Substance Use

January 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The Phoenix, a nonprofit organization that harnesses the power of belonging and connection to create a movement that’s changing how we look at substance use disorder, is teaming up with the Detroit Pistons to host Motor City Recovery Night starting at the Pistons Performance Center prior to tip-off on Saturday, January 28. The event will feature a pre-game panel at 4:00 p.m. to discuss the future of the recovery community and ways to reduce the stigma around substance use disorder. Among the panelists discussing personal experiences through the recovery process is Larry Johnson, founder of Brotherhood Against Drugs and brother of NBA great Ervin “Magic” Johnson.

The Phoenix Detroit invites members and allies of the recovery community to the hour-long, empowering conversation followed by watching the Detroit Pistons take on the Houston Rockets in The Phoenix’s dedicated sober section at Little Caesars Arena. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to go on-court post-game to shoot a free throw and be featured in The Phoenix group photo.
