Meet The Staff

Stephen Carmel
Founder & CEO

I began my journey to recovery back in 2011 when I moved to California from New York. Along with my recovery and beginning a new way of life, I began to develop a heart for others struggling with sobriety. My journey to California was filled with many trials and lessons learned, but most of all, personal growth. I truly believe I would not have found success if I didn’t come to California. I started CPR as a way to work with people in recovery on a daily basis and it evolved into something much more beautiful. I have also come to realize that my own personal happiness and recovery depends on being involved in the lives of people in recovery. Helping others recover is a cornerstone of many 12 step programs, as it is here. Giving back to those still suffering, is the only way not to lose what you have gained. It is the paradox that we live by every day.

I came to California Prime Recovery not knowing what to expect. All I knew is that I had an open mind to create a new life for myself, and I was determined to become a better person. The team at California Prime helped me achieve that. I had also just started a full time job, so they helped me balance my work and my program to ensure they didn’t get in the way of eachother. Between my therapy sessions and group sessions, I was given tools that I use to this day to live and lead a successful life. This is a place and a team that truly care for the well being of their clients. I am grateful for California Prime, and thankful that it is a stepping stone in my recovery.

The staff and overall atmosphere of CPR is warm, cozy and extremely inviting. As a graduate of the program, I felt right at home and enjoyed everyday of my stay with the staff and clients. The staff are all extremely professional and most importantly helpful and impactful for my recovery. The clinical director is an amazing professional who works very hard and always puts her clients first. My therapist is the most amazing woman I ever met and would do anything to support my recovery. The food is fantastic - you will never go hungry. The staff makes sure you are also having fun in recovery by taking you on awesome escursions. I love this place and would recommend it to anyone in need of a life hanging experience.

CPR played a pivotal role in my recovery. Staff and clinical support were very accommodating to each clients individual needs. Group and individual therapy sessions left me feeling uplifted on a daily basis. Group outings were great! (Surfing,hiking,bowling,rock climbimb. Had a blast with them all.) CPR taught me that there was hope for happiness in recovery. I was provided help and the means to create a resume, & help with job searching. Individually I would like to thank first my Therapist, Clinical Director, & Case Manager at CPR. You guys were there for the transformation of a lifetime. I came in hopeless and left with confidence, motivation, self care & mental stability. Thank you sooooo much!!!!

Amazing place. I have never seen my son make the kind of changes he made while here. I’m so happy to have my son back. After many failed attempts I thought all hope was lost, but he now is working a good job, staying sober, and a part of the family again. Thank you California Prime for everything you’ve done for my family!

Cali Prime is amazing. The staff really cares about the clients, especially the clinical director! They take the time out of their day to make sure that clients are doing well and succeeding. They definitely give you all the tools you need to level up in life. My therapist was amazing and made me feel so comfortable with sharing my issues and we always found a solution. After getting kicked out another treatment center, I know I wouldn’t have been able to get sober at all if it wasn’t for California Prime.

Do not go here! Severely understaffed, disorganized, and how's manager was terrible! Their turnover rate is so high well I was there I can't tell you how many staff I saw come and go. Several house managers relapsed. The groups were so large I don't know if anybody felt comfortable sharing! My individual therapist was really helpful and worked really hard with me but the overall program has terrible leadership I think they care just about making money.

California Prime is where I broke down and had complete demoralization I relapsed there and they gave me a second chance. This place truely has helped me on my spiritual journey, and help me grow into a productive member of society. I have been in and out of treatments, and the staff here really cares. I have made really good friends here with the staff, and other clients. Recovery is what you put into it and you find out what works for you, AA, spirituality, or whatever makes you happy. The therapist are amazing. California Prime is an acception treatment facility.

California Prime was a breath of fresh air. After attending multiple treatment centers and still unable to collect even a small amount of sobriety, I was introduced to California Prime. While hesitant at first, any reservations quickly vanished when meeting the caring staff. Both the support and clinical team will go beyond to cater to the individual. The intimate size of the center allowed for a more communal atmosphere and I was treated as a client rather than a number. The program offers a variety of activities on a weekly basis as well as educational groups that are discussion based. I can not accurately express my appreciation for this center, it’s staff, and the continued support I have received even after graduating. This is a treatment center with the intention to help it is NOT in it for the money and is certainly NOT a flop house.

I completed 90 days of treatment at CPR and would recommend their services to anyone searching for a solid treatment center. The staff care about the clients, and do their best to help everyone who attends the program. California Prime helped save my life and I wouldn't trade my experience there for anything. If you or a loved one needs help with addiction, don't hesitate to contact them and ask for help. They'll do everything in their power to help you, and I for one am grateful for the program and the experience I had.

Beware! I can only rate on facility because my son was only there 1-2 hours. Everything sounded great. I was told he would be in a house. My son called shortly arriving at the residence. I quote," we have to find another place, this is a shady looking apartment with trash everywhere. It looks like no one has every done any chores". My son is not the cleanest, so it had to be pretty bad! I quickly called another sober house managers and he picked him up immediately. Someone with the house did call me and assured me he was going to find out what was going on and they did not have apartments. He said mad he was going to go speak with him and make sure he got him somewhere else where he felt safe and was happy with. My son was a few hours out of recovery center and they had no idea he was not even there any longer!

Out of all the intensive out patient programs in Southern California I confidently say Cal Prime is the best. Tthe owner cares way to much and his team follows in his direction. I recently just referred a loved one who needed help. I am grateful he was so open and willing to help in a desperate situation.

This place is amazing! Truly helping many people recover and become better human beings. They have helped me to learned my purpose in life, as well as given me the tools to help fulfill that purpose. I truly owe everything to the wonderful people here at CPR! I couldn’t be more thankful. I want to come back and work for them one day, and become a part of this great team of treatment staff. God is working in many people’s lives through this center and the staff here. Thanks for helping me get my life back CPR!

Very Good
Treatment level of care was decent besides the fact that I returned after discharging to pick up some belongings that I left and a few items were stolen and not included with my things: severely disappointed because the items were brand named expensive cosmetics. Not very professional in my opinion but hey, nobody's perfect I guess.

When I think of California Prime Recovery, I literally think of the acronym CPR, because this facility has helped save my life! When I entered CPR I was merely a human excisiting, but with the guiding hand of the clinical team and support staff, I've learned that I am much more than that. I am a human being that deserves life! I no longer feel alone. Also, as a perk, it is a individualized program & they actually accommodate to the best of their abilities. I am eternally grateful! I love California Prime Recovery!

California Prime Recovery is unlike any other treatment program I have attended. As a recent graduate of their program I can attest to their hands on commitment to each client. They developed an individualized treatment plan for me including PTSD coping skills, seeking safety Cognitive Behavior Training, and various other physical activities to keep me active. I cannot stress how this company's day to day, hands on work with me has helped me get to where I am now. I recommend anyone who is struggling with addiction to come to California Prime Recovery where they can gives you the tools, and whatever help you need to be successful in your recovery.

For years I had struggled with my addiction, in and out of programs and institutions. When I got to CPR it was the first time I felt welcomed, and not alone. The staff was AMAZING, and the program wasn't like any I had done before. I felt like there was hope for me, and that was the first time I felt that way in a very long time. I want to thank CPR and the staff for all they have done, and I cannot wait to see what my future has in store for me.

Watching my brother struggling with drugs over the years has been very tough. I'm sure everyone knows that feeling of hopelessness, thats why we are so thankful that we have found California Prime. So far he is doing well, and he is staying positive. Last time I saw him, he just looked better and happier! I just really want to thank 3 individuals in particular for being there during his tough times! It really means a lot!
