Maybe it is just a huge state for recovery. I do know that the starts make up a huge part of the inpatient population in California. For this reason, California has the best drug treatment centers in the world. They have to. They are catering to a clientele that is right off of a movie screen.
Many of the facilities have a country club type atmosphere, or one that you would find at a spa. Too many people are confused about what treatment is all about. It really is nothing but a big introduction to the 12 step meetings, regardless of the location. It is not a coincidence that California has some of the largest and best 12 meetings in the world.
When you’re in treatment in California, they always take you to the outside 12 step meetings. In Laguna Beach there is a legendary and massive speaker meeting called the Gucci meeting. They call it this because of the Hollywood type group of people that have attended this meeting over the years. Only at a California treatment center will you end up in a meeting like this. You can find the glitz and glamour with the treatment or you can just find the treatment. The top treatment centers in California employ the best addiction specialist in the world.
You really can’t beat the treatment you will get out there. In most cases the facility is located on the beach or close to it. Again, while it may not be needed to get clean and sober, who wouldn’t want to watch the sunset every night after dinner in rehab? I did.
