Drug and Alcohol Treatment for Long Beach Residents
Even though Long Beach is a lively city, people seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction may prefer to look for a program outside its borders. That is because many people want to get away from familiar surroundings and focus on their recovery in an environment that supports their goals for sobriety . Being in a different location, away from distractions, can help people focus on their addiction and how they can move forward in recovery.

About Long Beach
Long Beach is one of the most interesting, bustling cities in Southern California, with a diverse demographic, a major port, charming pockets of neighborhoods, a lively downtown and attractions that draw people from all over the world.
Long Beach has come a long way since it was founded in 1888. The fastest-growing city in America from 1902 to 1910, Long Beach benefited from an oil boom, an increase in building, and the opening of the Port of Long Beach in 1911. However, the city faced tragedy when a mammoth earthquake struck in 1933. But civic leaders soldiered on and rebuilt the downtown area in a grand art deco style, which can still be seen in some buildings today. In 1975, the city launched a 25-year redevelopment program that cost billions of dollars. The fruits of that program can be seen in places such as the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center near the Long Beach Area, Shoreline Village and major shopping, dining, and entertainment complexes such as Long Beach Towne Centre, The Pike at Rainbow Harbor Entertainment Complex, CityPlace and The Promenade, a pedestrian-friendly walkway through the heart of downtown’s entertainment district.
And speaking of entertainment, there is plenty to do in Long Beach. The Queen Mary is permanently docked here in all her majestic splendor. Every year, the Long Beach Grand Prix races through the city streets, to the enjoyment of thrilled spectators. The Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific delights and educates visitors with its marine life exhibits. It’s easy for people to get around Long Beach—the city has an airport, a stop on the Metro Blue Line and there’s even a cruise ship terminal.
