    Can anyone recommend a good residential treatment center for alacholism in SoCal

    A dear friend of mine is ready to take that step in her recovery. I’ve never been to treatment in LA or the LA area and was hoping for a short list or a resource on centers or anything else you might think is helpful. Thank you for your help. #AddictionRecovery #SubstanceUseDisorders

    Years Ago

    Unfortunately, I rarely find anyone to speak with about these old homes. Instead, I try to see them as they were knew - 150 years old. I step inside and glance out the window, wondering what the homesteaders saw. I wonder what they grew and what livestock they had; how many children (with probably 2 bedrooms lol), and how many times family and friends gathered to celebrate a holiday or birthday. It really is sad we don't have the history; at least we have to buildings.

    Emotions of Photography

    Driving up and down gravel roads looking or old farms is both calming and exhilarating. I drive slower because I'm searching, which allows me time to practice mindfulness. When I see a copse of trees, or a glimpse of old wood, my heart beats faster in anticipation of what might be waiting around the corner. This is my therapy.

    Fantastic Farm

    This homestead was amazing. It still had all of the out buildings and most of them were still upright. When I was pulling in the driveway, this capture caught my attention. It turned out to be one of my best beginner pics ever.

    Hobby and Passion

    My hobby is photography, specifically old farms and homesteads. It's my passion. I get to drive with soft music playing, cruising the back roads to see what I can find. Coming upon a new place and getting butterflies in my stomach; what will I find?

    Slowly Falling

    This farm had so many buildings to capture, with a stunning sky for a background. Although this building looks like it's going to topple over right away, it typically takes more than a few years for the ground to gobble up buildings.

    ACT for C-PTSD?

    My psychiatrist suggested I try Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for my mental health conditions. I am wondering if anyone has tried ACT, and what results they've had, good and bad.
