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.



Lou Martinez

After years struggling with his addiction and cycling through the criminal justice system, Lou Martinez was finally offered treatment through Prop. 36. Since completing the program in Sacramento in 2003, he earned his certification as a drug and alcohol counselor and is working towards a degree in social work. He now supports his wife and children, and works with some of the 36,000 Prop. 36 participants each year “so that they can achieve the successes” that he has experienced.
