WeHo’s Substance Abuse Services Guide Provides Resources for Recovery Treatment

237

The first week of January is like rush week as New Year’s resolutions jam-packs gyms and the rooms of recovery across the nation with individuals vowing to live healthier lives. The City of West Hollywood updated their Substance Abuse Services Guide this past September during National Recovery Month to list agencies that provide substance abuse and addiction recovery treatment in West Hollywood and its surrounding areas.
