Southern California has one of the largest communities of recovering addicts in the world. It is estimated that there are about three thousand meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous every week in the greater Los Angeles area. Along with AA, there are numerous meetings of Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, and virtually every other twelve-step group every day in southern California. Committees such as the Los Angeles Committee of Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous or the Los Angeles Hospitals and Institutions Committee seek to bring drug recovery to a new level for those interested.
Twelve step meetings intimidate many people, but considering other aftercare options, they have been proven to be the most successful. With the abundance of meetings and committees in Southern California the fellowship of recovering addicts and alcoholics is strong and diverse
Finding a Treatment Center
If you’re just beginning your road to recovery, you need to first ensure that you find a program that works for you. First, you’ll want to make sure that it has a full continuum of care, including:
- Inpatient or residential treatment
- Outpatient treatment
- Intensive outpatient treatment
- Partial hospitalization
Programs like these allow you to step down through the levels of care that fit your needs. Additionally, the treatment center should offer therapies. Family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dual diagnosis treatments are among some of the most important for anyone preparing for drug recovery. At The Hills Treatment Center in Los Angeles, California, we offer all of these and more. To learn more about our offerings, call 866-323-4665 today.
