Learn About Tradition One
Founded in 1971, Tradition One is a non-profit organization which maintains and operates a campus dedicated to the rehabilitation of persons in the continuing process of recovery from alcoholism and other drug addictions. We are an accredited Social Model Recovery Home, licensed and certified by the State of California, Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs.
Tradition One is a six-month residential alcohol and other drug rehabilitation program for adult men. We focus on the Twelve Steps of the recovery program in a spiritual aspect as outlined in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. The first tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous states “our common welfare should come first, personal recovery depends upon AA unity,” and so is where we have derived our name. Residents are encouraged to help each other with the affairs of daily living. Each resident is responsible for his own living area and personal hygiene. Each participant is assigned daily house chores, the residents have a weekly house meeting, and an Executive Board is elected periodically as well as a Resident Peer Council. Common problems are discussed, possible solutions sought, and recommendations are made. The Peer Council Executive Board is called upon to make recommendations to the staff. We encourage involvement in this process of “people helping people.”
