Each year, more than 94,000 people rely on the Phoenix Society as a leader in burn recovery support and a community of caring people.
We offer information about burn care, connection among survivors, and programs for lifelong recovery. Many community members guide fellow survivors through online forums, one-on-one support, and more. Wherever you are in your journey, we are ready to help.
Get Started: Burn Injury Guide
What can I expect after a burn injury? It is one of the most common questions as survivors and their loved ones begin the journey of burn care. The physical pain of a burn is severe, but the worry, fear, and emotional pain it causes can be just as difficult. Our burn injury guide will help you with links, fact sheets, and other resources on types of burn injuries, pain management, emotional recovery, and more.
Get Connected: Burn Survivor Stories, Peer Support & More
Peer support is the heart of our community. Our stories of survival can become gifts that we share with others as they begin their recovery from a burn injury. By joining our online community, you can read the stories of fellow survivors and share your own. You can also participate in our weekly Peer Support Chat or discuss burn recovery issues and questions in our online forum.
In addition to online resources, the Phoenix Society has developed a series of signature programs and events to support burn survivors. These include Phoenix SOAR®, which brings together burn injury survivors with vital peer supporters to help speed and strengthen recovery while in the hospital.
