Salinas Men’s Residential Program

Mens Residential Program

Sun Street has a certain magic to it. If you sincerely desire to change your ways and get away from the drugs, this place will help you achieve that goal. – Marcos
Sun Street’s work changes lives for the better. It certainly changed mine. – Danny

This state-licensed recovery program provides a supportive environment for men seeking a life free from the devastating effects of drug and alcohol addiction. Certified counselors and recovery participants incorporate the principles of Social Model recovery, which utilize a peer-oriented, mutual help system that views the participant as a student, not a patient. Residents attend 12-step meetings, get a sponsor, and take personal responsibility for their own recovery. The facility includes a kitchen, library, several meeting rooms and a recreational area. Participants attend a variety of activities including community events and volunteer activities. ‘Giving back’ to the community is an important aspect of the recovery process.
