To mark National Recovery Month, The Fix is teaming up with Phoenix House to host a mass Twitter debate today (September 21) from 3-4pm EST. The wide-ranging theme is Different Paths to Recovery and we'll cover areas as varied as therapies and fellowships, harm reduction, spirituality, and how recovery itself should be defined. We've lined up a host of experts in the field to participate and share their views—we've linked to a few of their Twitter handles below, as well as some of our own, so you can check them out and follow them. So how do you join in? It's easy, as long as you have a Twitter account—and if you don't, it's not too late to get one. Make sure you're following @_thefix and @PhoenixHouse, then tweet your responses to the questions you see appearing on your feed—please remember to write #drugchat in each tweet you send, so others can follow the conversation. This is just one of the ways in which The Fix is becoming more interactive—we want to hear your views!

Normies React to the 12 Steps

"I think admitting to having a problem in general is the right first step, but to admit powerlessness is unhealthy. .. I think admitting powerlessness is more harmful because it doesn't help. Admitting that you want and need help is more useful after admittance."

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?
