Sherman Oaks – Sober Holiday Events

Good-Time Resources for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Recovery

2021 recorded the highest escalation of drug overdose deaths. The holidays are dangerous for those with addiction problem, even those in recovery. Drug and alcohol use usually accompany festivities and family gatherings.

Drug use and heavy drinking are common holiday occurrences. Memories of heavily indulgence can lead to even heavier than usual drinking and drugging, even among moderate and intermittent users.

Current pandemic related social, political and economic disruptions have created much higher stress. People look for a source of renewed pleasure and relief from discomfort. Consequences from reckless behavior and drug use grow greater, even for those in sobriety.

Community events and resources which can divert away from alcohol and drug use are available for everyone.
