First Things First

The Briar Unit at Las Encinas Hospital is dedicated to those patients suffering from chemical dependency. In 1987, several alumni saw a need for a social group, separate from any Twelve Step programs, where sober and clean individuals could share in a fellowship celebrating the fun enjoyed in sobriety and its importance recovery. Thus the Briar Bunch was born. Originally, membership was only available to those individuals coming through the Briar Unit but that since has changed and all in recovery are welcome to join us in sobriety!
