Our nurturing environment helps each individual take responsibility for his or her own life and build skills for long term substance abuse recovery, rehabilitation and emotional and physical success. Many come back later and tell us about their happiness and success as parents, workers, students and contributing members of their communities due to the services they have received in OCG.
OCG has provided residential and outpatient treatment services to over 3,000 individuals with substance abuse and mental health problems in San Mateo County and the greater San Francisco bay area since 1988. Substance abuse and mental health treatment services are delivered in a safe and structured family environment, utilizing the concepts of the Therapeutic Community.
Treatment is evidence based and individualized to account for each client’s specific set of strengths and needs. In an environment of self-help and positive peer interaction, personal values of honesty, trust and responsibility are emphasized as prerequisites for long-term recovery. Clients are assisted with conflict resolution, anger management and other emotional concerns.
Educational and vocational preparation for drug free and self-supportive living is addressed. Family counseling and involvement is encouraged and plays a significant role. The OCG Family Association provides a weekly venue for families and significant others to support their loved ones.
Contemporary, empirically validated treatment models for addressing trauma issues and validated assessments and evaluation tools are utilized to assure quality care. Treatment modalities are offered in a range of intensities, including:
Short-Term Residential; Intensive Outpatient; Outpatient; Recovery Residence; Transitional Housing.
