It's The Fix's First Birthday!

It's time to look back on a busy first year and look forward to much more to come—and to say thank you to all our readers.

The Fix marks the first anniversary of its launch today with a sense of gratitude and slight disbelief—has a whole year really gone by? Well, judging by all that's happened since we debuted last March with a juicy investigation of Scientology's Narconon rehabs, it really has. Not only have we produced a steady stream of features (here are your favorites from 2011), addiction news and Sober Living articles—we've also garnered widespread media coverage.

And that's far from everything. To keep in close touch with what else is going on, make sure you follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our weekly newsletter too. But although the specifics of what we offer on the site have evolved, our mission hasn't: to be the best source of addiction and recovery news, information and service out there for our readers.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to all of you, whether you've been with us from the start or just found out about us recently. Without you, we simply wouldn't be here one year on. We've got lots of plans for our second year—with your help, we'll make The Fix the best it's ever been!

From all the staff at The Fix

PMS: A Natural Threat to Sobriety

I remember slamming things around the kitchen one night and feeling like I’d lost my mind. I was angry about something so minor, I literally can’t remember what it was and I don’t know that I knew then either

The Rehab Review
Cliffside Malibu

The “beach-house-relaxed” Cliffside Malibu claims to provide an oasis for recovering addicts and alcoholics. And that’s just what you'll get—if you’ve got the cash.

Morningside Recovery

For a “rehab near the beach” experience that isn’t quite as costly as similar SoCal competitors, head to this Newport Beach treatment facility.

AToN Center

Whether you’re interested in the 12 Steps, SMART Recovery, or holistic treatments, this luxurious, appealing and commendable 4.5 star (our system doesn't yet show the 1/2 star) San Diego rehab has a program for you. 


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.

Journey Malibu

Want many of the luxury amenities A-listers have come to expect—including an enormous backyard with a pool and patio, an herb garden, a volleyball net and a spectacular vista of the Santa Monica mountains—with a recovery program to match?
