Places To Relax In LA While On Your Recovery Journey
Los Angeles may be the city of Angels, but it has its demons. Over 4 million people call LA home, with one of the worst cities impacted by the opiate epidemic; over 65,000 of the population are homeless. Naturally, the temptations of city life come with binge drinking, all-nighters, and “high-flying” activities. In other words, the drugs and alcohol accompanying many leisure activities do not need to be enjoyed while intoxicated.
We will discuss some more sustainable, relaxing hobbies and activities you can enjoy while being sober in the City of Demons. I mean Angels.
Find Solitude in Nature
California has some of the country's most beautiful national parks, preserves, lakes, beaches, and mountain peaks. Not to mention that the weather is perfect hiking-outdoor weather all year round, so why not enjoy what Mother Nature offers?
Sometimes it is as easy as taking a walk or hiking.
