Skip Byron Primary Program

The Skip Byron Primary Program (SBPP), located on the historic Henry Ohlhoff House (est. 1958) campus in the heart of SF, provides adult alcohol and drug addiction treatment through our highly structured, 30-day clinical program for the beginning stages of recovery. Cleints get help through a unique combination of services that are an affordable alternative to expensive hospital rehab. In addition, SBPP is in-network with most major private insurance plans. 

Residential Treatment

Residential Treatment (also referred to as inpatient) has 24-hour staff supervision and is designed for men and women who need a stable environment to begin their recovery. Comfortable living quarters and nutritious meals enhance the client’s sense of well-being while they reside at our program overnight.

Intensive Day Treatment

SBPP also offers Intensive Day Treatment (also referred to as Partial Hospitalization) for 7 days a week for up to 30 days. This program is integrated with the residential program, yet it is designed for men and women who have a safe and sober home off campus where they can live in the evenings after treatment.
