PRC Alumni Group is once again gaining momentum, raising money, growing in recovery!

Our PRC Alumni Group was formed in order to provide support and encouragement for current residents of Pasadena Recovery Center. Past PRC clients realize the importance of staying close to the program and each other to help them stay clean and sober while also enjoying the fun and benefits of sobriety. We remember the often terrifying experience of being in rehab, along with the uncertainty of the future.

At PRC, we’re moving forward with fundraising efforts and plans for future events benefiting current residents, such as a Memorial Day BBQ, 4th of July and other holiday celebrations and movie outings. As a group, we want others to be comfortable sharing their experiences, strengths and hopes with residents and families, and more.


The Alumni Group is open to all former residents who have successfully completed the program at PRC and are currently clean and sober. We realize relapse is often part of the disease. If relapse is a part of your story you as still welcome – as long as you are back on the road to recovery.

If you are a former client and are interested in joining The PRC Alumni Group or if you would like to support the Alumni Group, please send an email with your contact information to:

Alumni Groups recent fundraiser car wash was held at PRC April 5th. More fundraising opportunities coming.

The Experience

Admissions Process

Many people find the very idea of entering a rehab facility daunting. We at the Pasadena Recovery Center want to ease your fears and assure you that we will be here with you every step of the way. Many people believe that the hardest step is the very first one – contacting us – and then it gets progressively easier.
