San Diego Rescue Mission Women and Children's Center
P.O. Box 80427, San Diego, California, 92138
The San Diego Rescue Mission offers a 12-month substance abuse treatment program for homeless men. The facility provides basic needs such as food and shelter, as well as comprehensive, faith-based alcohol and drug addiction treatment designed to heal the whole person — mind, body and soul. The hope is that residents will learn to address and overcome the issues that led to homelessness in the first place, and develop the coping skills needed to reenter the outside world as contributing members of society.

Aftercare SupportAddiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
Holistic TherapyFacilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
