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.



Lori Haugen

Hi my name is Lori Haugen and I live in Grass Valley. I wanted to share with everyone how Prop. 36 saved my life. I am a recovering Meth addict. I activley used for 22 years. I thought there was no other way for me. If it were not for Judge Tamatti, Laura Gross(probation), Mike Dent(probation), Community Recovery Resources and all the other wonderful people who believed in me and showed me a new way to live. Today I could be in prison or worse yet dead.

Prop 36 works!!!

I now have 2 years 3 months and 9 days clean and sober, I work in a residential treatment facility helping other women just like me. I plan on getting my CADAC starting in September. My life is wonderful in so many ways, and I owe it all to Nevada County Prop 36.
