For Confidential Information Call: (510) 236-3134

Addiction to alcohol and other drugs is a potentially serious but treatable disease.

The Rectory Women’s Recovery Center offers specialized evidence based services that are critical to the recovery of women. We respond to the unique needs of families devastated by addiction.

The Program housed in the historic “Old Rectory” building in San Pablo serves women from Contra Costa County. In this homelike setting, we offer a warm family atmosphere where the recovering woman can begin to live in an alcohol and drug free environment.

Our community-based program helps women explore their alternatives in recovery, and take responsibility for their own lives. We also offer them the opportunity for personal recovery while continuing to care for their children.
