Recovery Services

It’s beyond stopping the use of drugs and alcohol, RECOVERY is as an ongoing process to achieve a state of health and wellness. Meeting our patients where they are at, and allowing them to define their goals and priorities in the process, is what we do. We are partners working together to accomplish what they define as success.

Over the past 40 years, GLIDE has been on the front lines of major social and health issues afflicting San Francisco and other major urban centers: AIDS, the crack cocaine epidemic, violence and homelessness.  We embody a client-based approach to healing that engages the client to take an active role in planning and implementing personal goals for health and recovery.

On January 24, 2011 GLIDE Health Services Recovery Program was awarded “Distinguished Care Providers of the Year” by the Superior Court of California County of San Francisco Drug Court.

Recovery Services:

• Comprehensive individualized needs assessment
• Dual diagnosis services
• Physical exam

Recovery Services are available through GLIDE Health Services. We offer a  non-intensive 90-day outpatient alcohol, tobacco, and drug treatment program. We recognize that persons with substance use disorders may be affected by mental health issues, abuse, domestic violence, discrimination, a history of incarceration, poverty and homelessness, and that these are often linked to their use of substances. We offer comprehensive, culturally competent and trauma-informed support; our goal is to support an individual in their journey toward self-sufficiency and personal growth.

Services are provided by:
• Nurse Practitiones and Physicians

With Director Barbara Garcia’s announcement over a week ago, SF is now poised to be the first city in the country to open a SIS. Given these recent developments, we have re-posted excerpts from an earlier interview with Paul Harkin, manager of GLIDE Harm Reduction, who speaks to the scope of the problem and to the arguments in favor of SIS as a viable, compassionate & rational approach.

As our nation continues to engage with recent mass social justice movements, namely #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo, this film is especially timely and powerful. We are grateful to everyone who came to GLIDE to experience and discuss it together in community.
