About Foundations San Francisco

Located in the heart of the Embarcadero district, Foundations San Francisco offers comprehensive, confidential, compassionate outpatient treatment in a convenient urban setting. Flexible daytime and evening programs address addiction and any co-occurring mental health issues simultaneously in a supportive atmosphere where substance abuse is recognized as a disease. Patients are treated with dignity and respect as the staff focuses on each individual’s unique needs.

Our program is located in the Embarcadero building on a quiet street in beautiful downtown San Francisco. Everything takes place in the same building: process groups, individual sessions, random drug testing, and holistic offerings, such as yoga, acupuncture and massage therapy. You experience all of this while surrounded by soothing water views that include the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking, which is at a premium in the city, is also provided on-site.

Our Mission

Our goal is to provide highly individualized, confidential treatment to help individuals succeed in recovery. Not everyone who needs treatment gets it, often due to misconceptions about the process or an inability to find a program that works with their schedule. That’s why we at FRN were committed to bringing our successful model to the San Francisco Bay Area. There is often a gap between addiction treatment and mental health services, and the goal of Foundations San Francisco is to bridge that gap with outpatient services that treat the these issues concurrently, helping people reach their best quality of life.

Holistic Treatment

Treatment is a mind, body and spirit experience, and we seek to address the needs of the whole person in order for long-term recovery to be successful. That’s why our program includes a range of holistic offerings aimed at relieving stress, providing healthy coping mechanisms and empowering patients to gain deeper insight through personal time for reflection and self-discovery. We have an on-site yoga studio with instruction in both vinyasa and hatha yoga. Meditation, acupuncture and massage all help decrease stress and aid in recovery as we treat the whole person.

Spiritual Care

Foundations San Francisco is committed to treating not just addiction but all aspects of the individual. That’s why we have a spiritual care coordinator on-site. This addiction specialist, spiritual counselor and ordained interfaith minister can provide spiritual assessments followed by weekly sessions that focus on awakened living and creating space for your own inner journey. The goal is always to meet patients where they are, helping them determine what role, if any, they would like spirituality or faith to play in their recovery. This looks different for everyone. It may include connecting with your inner voice on a deeper level or dealing with shame and confronting erroneous core beliefs from the past.

For those who are interested in this optional offering, our spiritual care coordinator works in partnership with our primary therapists, helping to create plans for patients when they leave treatment that is based on their spirituality and focused on tools to help them readily access what they believe.

Our Patients

The city is known for its thriving tech, fashion and financial communities as well as its celebrated diversity. Foundations San Francisco provides compassionate services that do not interfere with career and personal obligations but get to the root of addiction issues and move individuals toward healing and health. We also have experience serving the LGBT community and provide spiritual assessments for those who want to incorporate a faith element into their recovery.

You are never a number to us. Foundations San Francisco offers 12-Step optional, flexible programs where clinical decisions are driven by each individual’s unique needs. We operate on a “step-down” philosophy, with and our main goal is to see you accomplish your specific treatment goals.

Intervention

At FRN, we work with a core group of professional interventionists who practice a variety of models. We have a team dedicated to matching families with the interventionist that best fits their financial capability, location and clinical profile. Our goal is to get patients into the treatment they need and deserve, and our referral services are complimentary. We can help you find the interventionist that is right for your family and your loved one.

Medication Management

Professional treatment is an important part of the recovery process from prescription drug dependence or addiction, but for some, chronic pain issues remain. For others without chronic pain, recovery could be threatened by a one-time event where pain meds are routinely prescribed (injuries including breaks for sprains, dental procedures or surgery). Foundations San Francisco is committed to working with any patient to manage their pain, whether it is ongoing or one-time, and will explore a wide variety of options.

Professional Lecture Series

These quarterly sessions find Foundations San Francisco welcoming professionals from within the community to our offices to share their expertise on a specific topic related to co-occurring disorders treatment and the recovery process. The focus of these regular seminars is to provide education and relevant information as a service to the community. Attendees have the option to earn CEs (continuing education credits) while connecting with others in the treatment field. These events draw fellow therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, MDs, interventionists and all varieties of treatment professionals.

On-Site Drug Testing

We provide random drug testing to our patients, striving to make the process as unobtrusive as possible. Most testing is done in the form of a UA (urine analysis), but we also have the capability to administer blood tests to detect steroid use when needed. Samples are collected on site and sent to a lab within our building or processing.

Alumni Services

Upon completion of the intensive outpatient program and continuing care services, patients become members of our alumni network and will be invited to participate in regular alumni gatherings and special events. Each alumni group takes on its own personality, and Foundations San Francisco listens carefully to the needs and wants of the individuals to provide the support and services that are the right fit for this unique population. All alumni are also invited to take advantage of our direct alumni phone line, which they can call to refer loved ones or get an assessment for readmission, and alumni are encouraged to join the Heroes in Recovery community, a positive place to share their stories, celebrate recovery and interact with others committed to living a sober life.
