Cityteam in San Francisco operates four programs with comprehensive services designed to help those in need. The residential drug and alcohol treatment program offers long-term care for men that’s client-driven and 12-step based. Clients learn responsibility, leadership, and stewardship by working at the mission while participating in therapy sessions, anger management meetings, Bible studies, life skills classes, and career enhancement classes designed to help men find employment after completion of the program.

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
