The Van Ness Recovery House opened a 20-bed facility on Beachwood Drive in 1973 and became aware of serving its first HIV-infected resident in 1984. The program has since served 1,632 HIV-infected residents. In the past five years, 61% of transgendered clients entering the program have been HIV-infected, 80% of all residents have been HIV-infected and over 86% of the residents have been homeless, having had little or no reportable income of the previous year. Over 2500 men and women have been given a new start in life thanks to a community that cares.

Specialization

  • Residential Treatment
    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.
  • 12-Step
    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.

My Partner entered this so called Rehab and it pretty much followed the script Ive read happened to peoples loved ones. the imposed the 60 black out period. Our last phone call at that time was him wrestling with someone for the phone, he yelling my name and people in the back ground screaming no at him. and silence.. No one would tell me what happened. I asked to speak to a director or a councilor but no one would or did. After the 60 days, when I head from him - he was angry, hostile. paranoid like he was still using. blaming his drug use on everyone but himself. Way to go van ness. You turn a drug users psychosis into reality for him. he basically told me they are feed a script to tell their loved ones but it was to save his life. That was one ten minute call and he has since disappeared. no family therapy no repairing lives I believe that they try to break up couples and brainwash them into drinking their Kool Aid - their new addiction

I give four stars across the board. This place is not a joke, not a meal, not a roof, not your moms house. I was just told to pack my bags because I treated it as such. If you want Recovery and are serious about getting clean and sober this is it. I learned a lot and have tools for sobriety if I so choose to use them. Good house and can feel the recovery. Goddess blesses you.

It provides behavior modification, and it serves but not exclusively the lgbt community. The love too much. ` The staff at this facility are the most loving and caring people I've ever me in my life, they love you till you can learn to love yourselve .they also provide job training and assistance with finding a job towards the end of the program truly an amazing place. At Van ness you don't find yourself you build yourself from the ground up. This place will always be my home it's we're I learned about honesty, integrity and how to be a friend.

If you want an in your face kind of place, go there. Unfortunately for me it does not work. I need a more gentle approach, leading to me wanting to know more about addiction and feelings than simply doing something because I\'m afraid to be yelled at.
