Every last staff member at Pathfinders is a successfully recovered addict and/or alcoholic. The AA meetings held on site are some of the best in San Diego. The chef is an outstanding cook, making healthy, top-quality meals with love for the residents. Pathfinders is a social model recovery community encompassing three large residences, on-site office and meeting hall, a separate corporate headquarters and multi-unit dual-diagnosis sober-living establishments. The alumni keep coming back to work with and encourage newcomers, who are welcomed warmly by both staff and existing residents. It is the finest treatment option I could imagine for any man seeking help with alcoholism and/or drug addiction.
