Stephen Carmel

Founder & CEO

Embarking on my recovery journey in 2011, I made the transformative move from New York to California. This transition not only marked the beginning of a new chapter in my life but also ignited a profound compassion for individuals grappling with sobriety. Through the challenges and lessons of my Californian sojourn, I experienced significant personal growth, ultimately attributing my success to this pivotal move.

Motivated by my own recovery, I established California Prime Recovery (CPR) as a platform to engage with individuals in recovery on a daily basis. What began as a professional endeavor evolved into a profoundly beautiful mission. Over time, I’ve come to recognize that my own happiness and sustained recovery are intrinsically linked to actively participating in the lives of others on their recovery journeys.

At CPR, we understand that helping others recover is fundamental to numerous successful treatment programs, and it forms the core of our approach. Contributing to the well-being of those still facing challenges is not just a practice; it’s the essence of preserving the hard-earned gains in our own journey. Join us on this empowering path of recovery and communal support, where giving back becomes the key to preserving and enhancing the richness of our shared experiences.
