Fr. Alfred Center Addiction Recovery Program
St. Anthony’s runs one of California’s leading drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs.
St. Anthony’s Father (Fr.) Alfred Center offers free, long-term residential program that gives men with no resources the tools they need to overcome addiction and the support they need to establish productive, healthy lives.
At St. Anthony’s participants receive intensive personal support from experienced counselors, along with access to holistic treatment through various programs at St. Anthony’s, including medical care, technology use, and career coaching.
During the first six months men work preparing food in St. Anthony’s Dining Room – which serves low-income and homeless people in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. This work is crucial to the daily operation of the Dining Room (which serves 2,500 meals a day, 365 days a year). Upon completion of this work, men then receive their food handlers’ certificate, opening doors to employment opportunities.
The program’s goal is to help men overcome their addiction and recover the self-esteem necessary to begin a clean, sober, and stable future.
St. Anthony’s rehabilitation program has a proven track record of success. 90% of program participants are in stable work and housing on graduation. It is based near Civic Center in San Francisco.
The program provides ongoing support to graduates. Former residents can return for counseling, encouragement, or a friendly person to talk to at any time as they continue their recovery.
To join the program, participants must be:
- Men over the age of 18
- Without any source of income
- Available to receive detox treatment for 72 hours prior to enrollment
- Free of chronic physical, emotional or psychiatric conditions that would prevent program participation
