The blue water, well, not that blue. The gorgeous coast, the dark cornflower blue waves, the sandy beaches, the legions of people gathered to swim, surf, and tan along the water. Does this sound like a summer vacation or what? But no, it’s drug rehabilitation California style. Why on earth would you go to a rehab facility in Cleveland, Ohio or Minnesota where while trying to get your life back on track you might be pelted with hail? Affordable rehab centers do exist in California, in spite of the plethora of images of luxury resort facilities tucked into mountain crests overlooking the ocean, there are also places filled with sunshine that are much less costly, but quite likely to provide the all the care you might need from a heroin rehab center. The truth is that you need a facility that is going to address your internal issues and to the degree that the environment / scene in which you find yourself contributes to your sense of peace and equanimity, you will have done well for yourself. The truth is that until you address your most acute problems, you will be unable to be fully aware of the natural beauty around you. Better to seek smartly budgeted, high-quality care and commit to a rigorous discipline of personal care that can be maintained no matter what your environment.
After you have de-toxed and calmed the inner turmoil and put out the crises in your life, meet with friends for a nice vacation across the Atlantic or south of the California border. With your newfound frame of mind, anything you do will be a kind of adventure. Savings intact, you can plan and contemplate life-style changes that will amount to a year’s worth of vacations.
