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.

GLIDE Instagram
As one of our busiest days of the year draws to a close, we'd like to share a serendipitous find that we discovered in the archives today. In 1997, LIFE magazine featured GLIDE in a long piece entitled "A Church for the Twenty-First Century." Here is photo of Rev. Cecil, doin' his thing and handing out grocery bags to the community 20 years ago. At events like Grocery Bag Giveaway, our committed staff, community partners, dedicated volunteers & Tenderloin neighbors work side by side to remind our city, and our country, of the persistence of human goodness and unconditional love.
