Manifest Destiny brought early settlers of America westward. Everything out west held promise of a better life, especially in California. From the prospect of the gold rush to the modernization of cities like San Francisco, something special was happening on the other side of our maturing country. The allure of the west and of California has never faded away. People make pilgrimages from all around the world to visit our beautiful state and get a glimpse of what life is like in California. Whether they visit mountain, valley, desert, or coast; National Park, winery district, Hollywood, or Disneyland; people come to California to fulfill a dream. Many people consider coming to California for treatment to recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Southern California is one of the most unique areas for recovery in the world. Few recovery communities celebrate recovery the way that the communities of Southern California do. In such a world-famous paradise, people recovering here are saturated with gratitude for their sober lives. Learning to make the most of life in all of its available outlets inspires people’s long term recovery and abstinence from mind altering substances. At the core of recovering in California is something simple but profound enough to provide encouragement: being in California. Those who come to recovery are made familiar with the concept of a higher power. Traditional 12-step programs encourage those in recovery to discover a higher power of their understanding and foster a relationship with that entity. The principle is having something powerful enough to believe in that it perpetuates the desire to stay sober. For the many who come to California for recovery, being in California is the powerful motivator they need to sustain their sobriety. Leaving home and all of the familiarities of one’s addiction can be difficult to do. Starting a brand new life and learning to live in a brand new way is a challenge. Coming to California and building a life of recovery in California is the daily reward for the bravery and willingness required for seeking treatment by asking for help.
