"Recovery" and "fair" aren't two words that have often been paired—until now. Tomorrow The Fix will be throwing the first ever Recovery Fair along with The Hills rehab up at The Hills' four-acre grounds, on Mulholland Avenue at the top of Laurel Canyon in LA (8207 Mulholland). People in recovery from addictions to alcohol, drugs, sex, food, money—even cluttering—are welcome at this entirely free event. (And so is everyone else!).

Recovery Fair will feature face painters, bouncy slides and game booths for kids of all ages to enjoy. And for those who prefer their activities a tad more spiritual, yoga and recovery expert Tommy Rosen will be leading a yoga class, while sober authors Nic Sheff and James Brown, among many others, will be there signing books sold by Recovery Fair sponsor Book Soup

Delicious goodies, from Velvet Rope Bake Shop, Theo Chocolate and Vita Coco coconut water, among others, will be a further temptation. Meanwhile, the newly sober looking to rid themselves of addiction-acquired ink can consult with Dr. Tattoff laser tattoo removal while fitness enthusiasts can jump into new regimes through Fit Happens Boot Camp. And if you're going through a divorce, struggling through a potential sex addiction or scared to face the fact that you blew off paying your taxes during your last run, Divorce Detox, the Center for Healthy Sex and Bismark Taxes are there to be consulted while Tannenbaum Chiropractic, Laurie Hermann Skincare and Bio-K Probiotics will be around to help the newly (or not newly) sober build the healthiest lives possible. Like munching on gluten-free Kind bars? Hope to catch some extra zzz's but can't reach for the Ambien so you're thinking about trying some Dream Water? Why not sample them for free tomorrow? For more information about Recovery Fair—which has been endorsed both by LA's Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and LA Councilman John Duran—check out the site…or just show up and join thousands of us any time between 11 am and 5 pm. Look around for Dr. Drew PinskyIntervention's Candy Finnigan and Jay and Silent Bob star Jason Mewes mingling in the crowd. Valet parking!

Suboxone: Trading One Prison Cell for Another

Suboxone seemed like a get-out-of-jail-free card, the answer to my opiate addiction. Instead, I had a new ten-year addiction, complete with thinning hair and lost motivation.

Cliffside Malibu

Reflections
 
 
 
 

This exclusive Northern California rehab is all about client choice—as well as golf outings, Buddhist field trips and keeping up with the office.

Capo By The Sea
 
 
 
 

Capo By The Sea offers an executive rehab program complete with medical detox and a focus on dual-diagnosis issues, as well as an outpatient option in an environment that exudes the kind of beach house optimism one would expect from an Orange County recovery outfit.
