At Bay Area Addiction Services, we will work together to find the most current and effective evidence based treatments, modalities, and research to treat addiction.
Bay Area Addiction Services (BAAS) was founded in 2018 with the desire to provide holistic, comprehensive, multi-dimensional, individualized, and ethical high-end outpatient treatment services to those struggling with substance abuse. As a small atmosphere, our goal is to provide the opportunity to have individualized care in order to address co-occurring disorders and ensure personal needs are met. As a result, each of our clients work closely with their treatment team to create a program that will work best for them to support a life of recovery and health. We offer 12 step opportunities, but recognize that other options are available and thus support other recovery program options such as Celebrate Recovery, LifeRing, and Refuge Recovery. Our staff is knowledgeable on the different kind of recovery programs our clients may want to participate in, and will inform the clients once a week about outside meeting opportunities with staff.
The treatment program at Bay Area Addiction Services is based on accepted practices in the field of chemical dependency and is supported by evidence-based practices. Services are designed and implemented to support the recovery, health, and well-being of each client. We ensure that adequate resources are provided to deliver treatment services, including but not limited to: staffing patterns, supervision, and administrative support. Our staffing patterns meet, or even exceed, industry standard’s best practices.
There are several pathways to treatment and recovery from chemical dependency. At Bay Area Addiction Services, we will spend the time and dedication to support an individual’s unique strengths and resilences, as well as, their needs, preferences, experiences, and cultural background in all of its diverse representation. Bay Area Addiction Services believes recovery from chemical dependency is not a step-by-step instruction manual process, but a process based on continual growth, occasional setbacks, and learning curves: Recovery begins with a stage of awareness in which a person recognizes that positive change is possible.
The Recovery process encompasses an individual’s whole life including mind, body, spirit, and community. Recovery embraces all aspects of life such as: environmental factors like housing, employment, education, mental health, and social support; and services like holistic, spiritual, and family participation.
Our mission at Bay Area Addiction Services is to provide drug and alcohol treatment in the outpatient setting by treating adults in a small group environment in order to enable us to give our clients specific needs and attention. Our purpose is to create a safe and caring environment where our clients can work on their own personal growth. We are a supportive, empathetic setting for individuals, families, and communities affected by addiction. Our goal is to help the client specifically identify what needs to change in order to protect their long-term sobriety, instilling a sense of priority and pride along the way.
Here at Bay Area Addiction Services, we believe that hope, work, and action are the catalysts to the recovery process. Recovery provides the essential and motivating message of a better future: that people can and will find peace. Hope is found internally, but can be fostered by peers, families, friends, providers, and others- something we strive to do.
The Bay Area Addiction Services outpatient program includes a thorough chemical dependency and bio-psycho-social assessment, individual treatment and transition planning, psychological screening, and drug testing. On top of evidence-based treatment approaches, we also provide a holistic approach offering additional options such as yoga, personal massage, and healthy food choices. Through individual, group, and family therapy sessions necessary recovery skills and education will be thoroughly covered, as well as, clients will be introduced to 12 step options and encouraged to begin to develop community support systems through resources provided. After completing the outpatient program, our clients will be offered ongoing support after their discharge in the form of a free lifetime once a week aftercare program.
Our treatment program is an intensive combination of treatment modalities, including group, individual, process, and educational experiences- with the central goal of supporting individuals in their development of an ongoing recovery program and connection with community-based support systems. As a result, the client is assimilated into a continuing action plan that promotes growth, chance, and recovery.
Bay Area Addiction Services seeks to offer a safe place where hope, healing, and health can happen.
