I am currently in my 50th day of a life changing experience here at Dual Diagnosis Help, Malibu. The amazing people that have touched my life are now part of the fabric of my recovery. Recovery permeates the beautiful surroundings and emanates from the sober staff. The outside AA meetings offer real world experience that I can carry with me when I leave. But it is the life-long sober friendships that I really treasure. My therapist is in recovery and offers a unique perspective to my recovery issues. I came here hoping and I leave here with hope.
