Prop 36 has been helping people enter treatment and improve—and even save—their own lives since July 2001. Since then, over 60,000 Californians have completed drug treatment and had a good chance at recovery.

These are the stories of some of those people. If you would like to include your story, let us know by clicking on the "Submit Your Story" link above.



Garrett G.

I entered the Prop 36 program in 2003. I have completed the program, and returned back to my family and my career. I am a professional race horse jockey and won 2 Breeders Cup races last year, which was the first two of my career.

If it were not for Prop 36, I would have been in a jail cell and not receiving the help that I needed to return back to my family and career. I believe in this program and it can help individuals that want to work the program and not slip back into recidivism. Thank you to all that voted for Prop 36.
