Transition to Treatment


“Admitting you have a problem is the first step in recovery.”

Is This For Me?


There was a time when most people didn’t know anyone who was in recovery.  Nowadays, just about everyone knows someone who has taken that first big step.  And it really is okay.

But knowing someone who has done it is different from taking the leap yourself.

What if you’re not “there” yet?  What if you’re not sure you have a problem?  What if you’re not completely sold on the idea that you need treatment?

Is there anything you can do to help decide?

At Second Chance, there’s a lot you can do.

→  You can come in and talk with us about it.  You can ask any questions you have about drugs, alcohol, addiction, recovery or our treatment services.

→  If you want, you can be informally assessed for a drug or alcohol problem.

→  You arrange to sit in on one of our Treatment Support Groups to see what they are like.

→  If you’d like, you can talk with some current participants and hear their experience.

→  You can attend our clean and sober social functions, such as our potluck luncheons and Family Nights, to get a different “feel” for what recovering life looks like.

                                                                                                          → If you think of something you forgot to ask,  you can call us back 24/7 to talk more.

We’re here to help you figure this out.  Call us. (510) 792-4357
