I was just wondering if your company used to be the kind folks in Laguna Beach, CA?
Yes, we were Witts Inn Laguna Beach. How do we know you?

Haha. Well, I was cleaning out our basement here in So Maryland and I found your card. It says "Eva P. Solorio", Resident Manager. If memory serves me, she was a Psychologist, yes? I stayed with you in another lifetime, May and June, 1992. I think Pat (your husband?) had a car detail company at the time?
I had visited 6 or 7 different rehab spots in OC and nobody would take me. It wasn't my attitude, it was that I was SO sick! Had been caught driving with a .38 and when they sent me to Charlies Street (sp) I had my first seizure on day 2. I think I spent a week at Hoag Memorial hospital. Barely made it. When we got to Witts Inn, you were very nervous about taking me but did anyway. I was very zombie like and you guys forced my to make my bed everyday, bathe, eat, and go to 2 meetings every day, rain or shine. I also had an extreme case of neuropathy in my lower legs and feet and could barely walk. Across the street (I think) was some kind of beach with lots and lots of steps to get to the sand. I remember it took me about 3 weeks to get to the bottom and then back up.
Well, after 30 days my roommate came to pick me up and you guys convinced him I was not ready for independent living yet. Good call! I spent another month there and remember going home.
21 years later here I am - still sober! I have been married 16 years, have a beautiful 13 yr old daughter and 3 grand kids from a previous marriage. My legs recovered and I play A level racquetball several times a week. We have been operating a travel business out of our home for 14 years, and life is good!
So, thank you both for changing my life! I hope you are healthy and happy...
