  • AJ's Living supports active participation in 12-step recovery programs.  Daily rides to meetings are available to much of Humboldt County, including Trinidad, McKinleyville, Arcata, and Eureka. AA/NA based activities such as potlucks, conferences, beach bonfires, and camp-outs are well attended by AJ's residents.

  • Some residents have daily jobs, often using public transportation to reach job sites.  The result is a quiet, serene, meditative environment.  Household chores are assigned to promote a sense of community.  Daytime TV viewing is discouraged.

  • We have 3 weekly, 12 step recovery meetings for coffee, cookies and  a great discussion of recovery literature.

Art & Jeanine were chosen as Humboldt-Del Norte representatives to the 25th Annual Recovery Happens event, held on Sept. 6, 2017, at the state capitol in Sacramento.  Sponsored by the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals, Recovery Happens is California's statewide campaign for people to celebrate the lives of those who are recovering from alcohol and/or drug addiction.

At Friday Fellowship, we gather together for a community dinner and then watch a movie together

In the summertime, Humboldt campouts by the coast, in the redwoods, or by a mountainous river, are among the best in the world.

Activities and events happen year 'round
