My First Commitment in Recovery – By Brian M.
The first place I attended a recovery meeting was called
simply “The Place.” It was in a strip mall in tiny Lucerne
Valley in the high desert, 30 miles east of Apple Valley. I
was hesitant about making any commitment in my first
weeks of recovery, but my counselor at the Treatment
Center suggested I begin my service at this tiny meeting
next to a hot rod car shop and a pizza joint.
