Foundations San Francisco Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Our intensive outpatient program is located in the Embarcadero building on a quiet street in beautiful downtown San Francisco. Everything for our IOP takes place in the same building: process groups, individual sessions, and holistic offerings, such as yoga, acupuncture and massage therapy. You can experience all of this while surrounded by calming views of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking, which is at a premium in the city, is also provided on-site. Telehealth now available!

Foundations San Francisco offers

  • Masters-level therapists
  • Mindfulness Practice
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Skills development for relapse prevention
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment
  • Trauma-informed treatment
  • Somatic experiencing
  • Evening programs
  • Creative Therapy
  • Yoga Recovery Therapy

Since most of us are staying home, having a daily routine with structure and support is vital, not only for your recovery but also for your overall health and wellbeing. Your weekly IOP schedule would include the following:

  1. A personal therapy session with your assigned therapist
  2. An initial session with our psychiatrist and then weekly check-ins on an as-needed basis
  3. We provide both day and evening programs for our clients 3-4 days a week. Day programing is from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and evening programs are from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Programs include evidence-based treatment modalities, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, and process groups.
  4. We also provide aftercare and alumni meetings

We can take away some of the self-isolating behaviors due to SIP by providing a safe and effective sober community and accountability while also giving you tools to decrease anxiety and depression. You don’t need to be working through your recovery alone. Let us help you regain your life back, especially now during COVID-19. Our trained and licensed therapists will guide you on your sobriety journey.
