Meet some of the most courageous people in our community….
SOAP has put together a monthly meeting not to be missed! To kick of the year, we are going to try something a little different. We have assembled a panel of clients that are currently in Recovery or are have family members connected to the disease. These clients will share their experiences of hitting their rock bottom, discuss what happened the week before they went into treatment, and Spouses will talk about the multiple relapses and experiences with the disease of addiction. The panel will be facilitated by Jean Campbell is made of people in our community that are working a program of recovery (alcoholic, Addict, Family members and other disorders) and some that are dealing with the addiction from outside the rooms of 12step meetings or therapy sessions. We hope you will interact with them to find out what type of program works for them, what caught their attention before and after the life of recovery and how we, as those professionals in the addiction industry, can grow from their experiences.
Meetings for SOAP are held at the La Jolla Village Square’s Community Room. The Room is located on the lower level of the shopping Center next to the AMC Movie Theater’s box office.
There are two areas to park: outdoors and underground. The outdoor parking can get rather full. We suggest that you aim for the indoor covered parking which is usually wide open during our meeting hours, plus it is cooler in the summer and dry during rainy season. Access to the underground parking is slightly tricky the first time you go, yet if you know where to look, it’s relatively easy. Once you enter the shopping center from Nobel Drive you will notice California Pizza Kitchen on your left and Islands Restaurant on your right. Just past Islands you will notice a right turn lane for people who are heading to Ralphs and Trader Joes. Don’t turn there, keep going straight. In about 30 feet and you will see a ramp to the right leading down to the lower lot. There will be a sign at the entrance to this ramp that clearly lets you know that this is the path to the additional underground parking. Just follow it down all the way to the far end where you will see a glass door entrance to the shopping center with a sign for the AMC Theater. That’s your entrance to the mall that leads to the Community Room which can be found immediately to the right of the AMC Movie Theater’s box office.
