The San Fernando Valley is home to some very good drug rehab aftercare facilities however addicts and alcoholic youth need to be away from their old partying grounds in order to achieve lasting recovery. When anyone, but especially a young adult, begins the up and down journey into sobriety, moving out of his or her geographic using territory is optimal.
“Heroin use across the San Fernando Valley – which is currently home to some 1.8 million people – has seen an ‘astronomical rise’ over the last decade in what has often been referred to as America’s largest and most racially diverse suburb,” according to Dennis Poncher, founder of B.I.L.Y., the non-profit parent support organization whose goal is family preservation.
The South Bay’s New Life House operates on the principle that it’s in the addict’s best interest to be far away enough where every corner doesn’t remind him or her of the drug dealer, the girlfriend or the drama of “hitting bottom.” They also ascribe to the concept that family involvement is paramount. Addicts are best able to concentrate on changing the negative behaviors that contributed to addiction in the first place when they have the room to do so and intermittent family support is key at this time.
