Asian American Residential Recovery Services (AARRS)
2024 Hayes Street
San Francisco, CA 94117
Program Manager: Susan Okada
The residential program is a 12-month, drug free, 24-bed drug and alcohol treatment program. The program consists of individual, group, and family counseling, educational seminars, recreational activities, art and drama theory, and vocational/educational development. The target population of AARRS is Asian/ Pacific Islanders from the age of 18 and up. Since its inception in 1985, Asian American Residential Recovery Services has provided support and guidance to many individuals in developing a renewed sense of pride and responsibility with a self-help approach that assists the individual in regaining self and a mutual respect within family and community.
In short, Asian American Residential Recovery Services tries to create a sense of family. Many who come through our doors have lost what it means to be a part of something greater than themselves, and
stopped caring about themselves and others. At Program we teach individuals to be responsible, and how to be part of a family and community again. There is a philosophy we live by which believes that only by sharing what you have learned and by giving back to others, will you keep your own recovery.
This program is funded by Community Substance Abuse Services of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
