American Addiction Centers National Rehabs Directory

Bayside Marin

718 4th St., San Rafael, California, 94901
We recognize that in treating addiction and co-occurring disorders, we’re doing much more than treating a diagnosis — we are treating people, each with their unique needs, backgrounds and belief systems. Each client at Bayside Marin coordinates closely with their treatment team to develop a recovery program that will work for them and their lifestyle and will support long-term recovery. Our intention is that clients develop a sober support system that represents a philosophy and structure that makes sense to them. Although the Bayside Model recognizes the effectiveness of 12-Step rehab programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, we do not teach the 12 Steps as part of treatment. We have several onsite 12-Step meetings per week, but we also make the literature available and take clients to other meetings such as LifeRing and SMART Recovery.

Specialization

  • Treating Mind, Body & Spirit

    The integration of mind, body and spirit makes a whole, healthy individual. Bayside Marin helps clients to heal in all areas of their lives, including their physical health, mental health, employment, relationships, finances, housing and social support systems. Rather than using drugs to self-soothe, we offer holistic alternatives such as yoga, Qigong, massage and acupuncture, which can be used to cope with stress and drug cravings both during and after treatment.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment for substance abuse at Bayside Marin’s premier residential treatment center is meant for individuals who require more support than is available in an intensive outpatient program. Inpatient residential rehab provides round the clock care and 24-hour support. Bayside Marin’s luxury residential facility for treatment of substance abuse is designed especially for guests who require privacy, exclusivity as well as the latest in alcohol and drug addiction treatment. Bayside Marin’s inpatient rehab is designed to be the last residential treatment center for substance abuse that clients will ever need. Clients are introduced to a variety of evidence-based clinical interventions that provide them with the greatest opportunity for lifelong recovery and success. There are three six-bed houses on our property that ensure clients receive one-on-one care during their stay at Bayside. Our addiction treatment specialists work diligently as a team to ensure that each client’s treatment is individualized and constructed so as to reinforce the recovery skills learned and utilized while in treatment.

It was supposed to be upscale, and the facilities were nice. However the Dr.'s and staff really didn't seem to have a good handle on what they were doing. They emphasized a one size fits all treatment philosophy which really does not work. Close to home. Good food. Nice scenery. Staff was fairly clueless . Very unprofessional.

It\'s been a long time since I was at Bayside... 9 years, in fact. I can describe what it was like at that time. First, it\'s a beautiful place. I think that it was bought the property from the author of Chicken Soup for the Soul. The view is fantastic. The flora is fantastic. There was a pool at the time, a sweat lodge and a hot tub. The beds were amazing... goose down comforters, pillows. The chef was from Mondavi... and the food was like... 10 star. You couldn\'t get better rehab food. Bayside offered acupuncture, reiki, yoga, tai chi, chi gong and massage. The morning and evening meetings were wonderful... focusing on thoughts, feelings and actions. The staff was talented. The doctor and nutritionist were on the mark. There were a variety of exercises that Bayside put us through over the month, and they were all great. We went to outside 12-step meetings regularly, as well as other recovery groups. My only reservation was the lack of 12-step focus. When you get out of rehab, that\'s really the only game in town... not these other organizations. If you\'re not trained into getting to meetings regularly, getting a homegroup and sponsor, reading the literature... I don\'t like your chances. Bayside didn\'t nudge you in any particular direction, and some of the patients walked out thinking that exercise, eating right and outpatient were going to keep them sober. Sobriety is a deep lifetime commitment that takes work. Bayside does a FANTASTIC job peeling back the onion. For those who come in already committed to getting out and doing recovery, it is an unbelievable opportunity to get clean, to get a clear head, to learn about themselves, and to feel good about life again.

This facility does not only have one method for success, it looks at each person individually. Baside Marin is a gorgeous facility that taught my neice how to overcome her situation. She learned that recovery is an inside job and how to become clean and stay that way. Her visit to this facility was a few years ago and is doing great.
