In September 2017, Ohlhoff Psychiatrist, Dr. Lennart Moller, was interviewed by San Francisco Magazine regarding working on the front lines of addiction in San Francisco. Scroll down to his testimonial to see what he says about the realities of withdrawal, the physical and mental strain, and its affect on the treatment we provide here at Ohlhoff! The article contains several other compassionate professionals' experiences, as well.

601 Steiner St., Residential Campus, Upgrades!

Skip Byron Primary Program's Little Yellow Classroom is complete! Groups for our 30-Day Intensive Program now take place is this space, instead of the Skip Byron living room, allowing a mental and physical separation between the grueling work of treatment and participants' living environment.

601 Steiner St., Residential Campus, Upgrades!

Thank you to the Dollar-A-Day Club for the funds to refurnish the smoking section of the campus with attractive, durable, and comfortable new patio furniture! This area is crucial for the socialization that creates a lasting sober support network.

Again, the men and women in our programs thank you.

Second Director of Henry Ohlhoff House's Memoir Received

Ohlhoff recently received the memoir of Henry Ohlhoff House's second Director (1958-1968), Rev. Kenneth Sandercock. In it he writes about ensuring the original 6-Month Working Men's Program maintained a safe and abstinence based program, "I [was] forced to realize that if any man, no matter what his position, took any drink he had to be sent away at once. Otherwise every other man in the house would think he also could break all the rules and get away with it.  I once found four men, who occupied one room, drinking and playing cards with the bottle on the table in plain sight.  They were all gone in half an hour and gradually some sort of order was established.  It was awkward at times as when the chef had to be fired at four p.m. with no dinner begun and some 30 - 40 men due to eat at 6.00.  But out he had to go regardless." Decades later and all our alumni can relate to these continued traditions that uphold the integrity of the Henry Ohlhoff House.

Thank you to Rev. Sandercock's grandson, Michael, for sharing the memoir with us!
