SAN DIEGO - A CITY FOR RECOVERY
It's been said many times in the rooms: sun-bathed San Diego is the ultimate city to get sober. With miles of beaches, a vibrant downtown arts and culture scene, close proximity to the mountains and deserts, and a relaxed, accepting environment, San Diego is home to one of the largest recovery communities in California.
And Amethyst Landing is in the middle of it all. Within an easy 15-minute walk are over 100 12-step meetings each week. Within a 10-minute walk, there is Sprouts Farmers Market (grocery), a library, coffee houses, restaurants, gyms, dentists, dry cleaning, churches, the Dharma Bum Temple, banking, and public transportation linking us to the rest of the city. Balboa Park, the largest urban cultural park in North America, is only two miles away, filled with cultural treasures, the world famous San Diego Zoo, tennis and golf, architectural grandeur, extraordinary gardens and award-winning performing arts and 17 museums with a different museum open free to the public on Tuesdays. From Balboa Park, downtown is right there with its picturesque harbor and many things to do, including taking a harbor cruise or catching a Major League Baseball game at Petco Park.
Recovery groups in area 12-step meetings plan outings throughout San Diego, such as barbecuing at the beach, hiking trails with stunning views of the ocean at Torrey Pines Natural Reserve, strolling the shops and savoring the food in Old Town San Diego, discovering the hidden footbridges of Bankers Hill and Hillcrest, and exploring the rugged coastline and caves of Point Loma and La Jolla Shores.
Amethyst Landing is a stable, accountable community with residents who make it their home for one year or more as well as others staying shorter periods in conjunction with outpatient treatment. San Diego enjoys a diverse economy based on tourism, international trade, information technology, and a thriving life sciences industry. Whether you come to Amethyst Landing for a few months or relocate to San Diego for sobriety, you will find it a welcoming place where recovery can strengthen and grow.
