My son was caught up in the epidemic of heroin and prescription drug use that has been running rampant throughout Simi Valley and the country. It started in high school and quickly spiraled out of control. Several of his young friends have died already. I was terrified I was going to lose him too. He didn’t want help. Somehow I managed to talk him into going down to the Lake House to see for himself. He was immediately surrounded by love and support. The staff is made up of men and women who have been through this themselves and his fears melted away. He is drug free for eight months now. He continues to work a twelve step program and goes to meetings throughout the Conejo Valley. I am so proud of him and so grateful to everyone at the Lake House Recovery Center.
