It has already been a busy summer for us here at Above It All Treatment, as we have been hard at work redesigning our website to offer a more concise design and better experience for those visiting our site, seeking information, and are ready for consultation. In addition to redesigning our website, we have also been busy all over the web and in social media. As the summer goes along, expect to see more of a presence for Above It All across all platforms.

A Visual Tour of Our Facility
The area in and around Lake Arrowhead, CA — where our treatment center is located — is beautiful and pristine; so beautiful that we couldn’t help but take some great photos. We have made these photo galleries available online; to view our online photo gallery CLICK HERE.
A new feature on our newly-revamped website is our “Addiction Information” area. This area is a wealth of information on various drugs, warning signs of their use, and resources for family members and friends that are struggling with an addicted individual.

Kellers Peak Campfire
On May 23rd the Above It All group had a great time getting out and taking-in nature. We drove up the mountain to the fire lookout tower and climbed to the top of the tower — 8500 feet in elevation. After we came down off the tower, we got together in a group and we all talked for a while. The views were amazing in every direction. After our group, we did some swimming in the lake — water temperatures were quite pleasant. We had a campfire and a cookout as the sun began to set. After dark — literally in the middle of the National Forest — the stars came out, very bright, and we all relaxed and stargazed. Our Campfires are great treatments and are very relaxing for both our guests and staff.
Beach Trip and Upcoming Activities
On the 21st of last month we had one of our regular trips to the beach. . It is always interesting and inspiring to go to one of the big meetings down there, to see all the recovery that happens. We plan to do a big group trip to the beach once every three weeks from now on, so there will be plenty more memorable beach trips in the future. In addition to our beach trips, now that summer is here, we plan to put together more group activities and recreational activities for the future; these group trips are not only relaxing, but does wonders for the recovery process. We are currently planning a few hikes in the San Bernardino National Forest, we plan a hike to Deep Creek (a gorgeous hike), and hikes to other destinations around the area.
Get Well Pluto
A bit of sad news, poor little Pluto — our recovery center’s loyal dog — has a hurt leg. He got his little leg run over, and is limping and in a bit of pain. The vet, however, said that the leg was not broken, and he is getting better and better all of the time. Get Well Pluto!
Equine Therapy Program
We are pleased to announce our Equine Therapy Program is available now at our treatment center in Lake Arrowhead. Animal therapy is a powerful tool in treating any disorder, whether it be a physical ailment or psychological disorder. The interactions between a person and a horse comes very naturally, and the relationship between the two develops just as an addict has to re-develop a relationship with his/herself. Equine therapy is beneficial to both the equine and the recovering addict, and we are proud to use this technique in our recovery options.To view information on our Equine Therapy Program, CLICK HERE.
