ABOUT CITYTEAM - SAN JOSE
Located in San Jose, CityTeam Men’s Recovery is amongst the 686 (52.3 percent) men's drug and alcohol treatment programs in California. The nondenominational Christian nonprofit that runs facilities in five US cities is dedicated to helping low-income and homeless individuals. CityTeam serves more than 500,000 people a year and operates another men's residential program in Oakland.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
CityTeam’s program lasts anywhere from nine to 12 months. The program emphasizes Christian faith as a fundamental part of treatment. Clients will participate in “discovery Bible studies,” as well as 12-step programming. In addition, clients are provided with shelter, meals, clothing, personal counseling, discipleship, and a health and dental clinic.
Career and employment services with individualized classes on math, computer literacy, reading, and life skills, GED preparation, and career counseling is also offered. Clients will participate in recovery classes on anger management, conflict resolution, and relapse prevention.
Services at CityTeam are made possible by the help of volunteers and donors. Volunteers assist with dining, kitchen, and laundry duties. The amount of credentialed staff members is unclear, though the sole alum surveyed by Rehabs.com to date provided four out of five stars for the staff's level of experience and training.

Residents live in “dormitory style” shelter with provided meals. No other information on related offerings is available on the facility’s website; though the sole former client polled by Rehabs.com to date provided just one star for the facility's exercise and leisure activities.
