The West Hollywood Recovery Center is celebrating the recent saving of the Log Cabin with a virtual recovery conference on the weekend of Saturday, May 16, and Sunday, May 17, 2020.

The conference will take place via Zoom. Meetings will vary from different programs of recovery and are each approximately one hour long. The first meeting will begin at 11am and the last meeting begins at 8pm for both Saturday and Sunday.

The City of Beverly Hills and the City of West Hollywood reached an agreement to have the Log Cabin leased by the City of West Hollywood for a period of twelve months with the intent to sublease the premises to be run by the West Hollywood Recovery Center. The WeHo Log Cabin is home to numerous 12-Step program meetings. The lease means these meetings will continue when it is safe to do so after the Los Angeles County Safer at Home order is lifted and the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us.

“We are thrilled to be able to secure this space to safeguard vital recovery services. Tens of thousands of people have been helped by the 12-Step meetings offered at the ‘Log Cabin’ and with the addition of the West Hollywood Recovery Center as the lead nonprofit we can count on another four decades of meetings and community recovery,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “These meetings will remain a vital resource for the West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and greater Los Angeles sober community. The City of West Hollywood has been committed to preserving access to services at this addiction recovery space and this lease agreement with our neighbors in the City of Beverly Hills is a testament to working together to address community needs.”

The Lions Club of West Hollywood formerly leased the site, but that agreement is now expired.
