When I arrived at Spencer Recovery Center, Laguna Beach California, I was a mentally, physically and spiritually broken man from 25 years of excessive alcohol use. I was met by a wonderful, caring and professional staff who guided me through my detox and was there for me every step of the way. With an excellent teaching and counseling staff, I was given one-on-one counseling and group therapy. After each session, I was beginning to see what I was being taught, Spencer gave me a foundation and the tools to build on this foundation, in order to maintain sobriety. Today, I am a happy and sober man. I want to thank Spencer Recovery for saving my life, as I was truly on my way to death.
