Sonoma Patient Group began in 2004, though its roots go much deeper. Born from the Caregiver Compassion Center in Santa Rosa, California, the Cleveland Avenue location changed its name but kept its focus on helping educate its patients while providing a community service.
Sonoma Patient Group has always sought to be a positive influence in their community by creating a place that is safe for those in need of healing. For years after a previous dispensary he managed was raided, John Sugg began the Caregiver Compassion Center, first on Montgomery Drive then in the current Cleveland location.
In 2007, Jewel Mathieson’s desire for advocacy, service and education, lead them to found the Sonoma Patient Group. This passion continues to empower the work they do today, with the dispensary serving as a natural healing center for those in pain.
