California Alumni Meetings


For the safety of everyone in our communities, we are—until further notice—suspending chapter meetings and groups.


Welcome to the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Alumni Chapter in California

Whether you are just beginning your journey or thriving in long-term recovery, staying connected with others in recovery is one of the healthiest moves you can make. All the California Alumni Chapters welcome new members, as well as long-standing members to find strength in the shared fellowship and support found in the Twelve Step format meetings.

Alumni Meetings in California

Getting involved is easy with nearly 35 alumni chapters in the U.S. and Canada. All alumni chapter meetings follow the same Twelve Step format, so everyone is welcome to stop by a local chapter and join in an evening of support and fellowship. Family members and guests are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting.
