The Helen Vine Recovery Center

The Helen Vine Recovery Center, which became a part of Buckelew Programs in April 2011, is a licensed 26-bed co-ed residential detoxification program located at 301 Smith Ranch Road in San Rafael that provides welcoming, recovery-oriented services to individuals with alcohol and drug addiction issues, as well as co-occurring psychiatric problems.

Helen Vine’s services integrate well with Buckelew’s other innovative behavioral health programs.  Not only does Helen Vine give people with drug or alcohol problems--including those that have a mental illness--a chance to begin their recovery, they can also find support, acceptance and hope through individualized programs including counseling, education about alcohol and drug addiction, 12-step meetings, wellness and life care tools, relapse prevention and community mentors.

For more information, call (415) 492-0818.

"When I first came to The Vine, I was a broken man, homeless and hopeless. Hearing alumni
share their stories gave me hope that as they had recovered, so could I. Today I am sober
for over six years, and have the privilege of working at Helen Vine Recovery Center. It feels
good to give back!"

- Robert, Counselor at the Vine and former client
