About The Support Systems Homes Treatment Centers

Based in San Jose, Serving Northern California & Beyond

Support Systems Homes (SSH) is an internationally accredited, state-licensed and certified substance abuse treatment provider dedicated to the innovative and cost-effective treatment of substance use disorders (drug/alcohol addiction).

Based in Northern California, our rehab facilities offer a comprehensive structure of treatment programs, sober living environments, and services for those suffering from the diseases of alcoholism and drug addiction.

Drug Rehab & Alcohol Rehab Centers

30 Years of Drug Rehab Help

Support Systems Homes began in 1990 intending to provide treatment of the highest quality, for the most affordable rates, to all those in need. In the thirty years since, our staff has supported California communities through rehab programs, outreach, education, and involvement in 12-step programs.

SSH focuses on helping our clients achieve and maintain abstinence from mind-altering substances, learn new methods to cope with life issues, and reintegrate into society as stable, productive individuals. Every client is treated with dignity and respect in the recovery process as the transformation from despair, hopelessness, and fear to a renewed vision of life unfolds.

No matter the level of care, SSH provides supportive, drug-free environments with highly qualified, trained staff on hand. Clients can participate in individual and group counseling, educational groups, make use of job preparation assistance, training in life skills improvement, lifetime aftercare, and the peer support so crucial to achieving and maintaining long-term sobriety.

Our staff and policies emphasize integrity, personal accountability, and most importantly, hope for those suffering from the diseases of alcoholism and addiction. We run an ongoing quality improvement process, too. So if you have a question or want to suggest something, an SSH staff member will be happy to listen!

Our Philosophy of Treatment for Substance Abuse:

“Provide a combined addiction treatment for healing the mind, body, and spirit together. Use counseling, education, structure, and skills development to help clients regain their lives.”

This is the key you need for a life-long journey of recovery. Through this approach, Support Systems Homes’ treatment programs offer hope to those struggling with the devastating consequences of substance use disorders.

We base our comprehensive system of treatment services on the belief that:

  • Abstinence from alcohol and mind-altering drugs must be maintained in order to appropriately treat clients.
  • Recovery must be an ongoing process, taking into account each aspect of life that is altered by substance misuse. We emphasize holistic treatment.

Treatment at Support Systems Homes is the beginning of a new way of life. We provide the necessary exposure to recovery principles and work at removing barriers that may prevent acceptance of those principles. SSH accomplishes this in a warm, peer-oriented environment, guided by compassionate, professional staff.

Treatment Structured to Your Life and Your Needs

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a chronic, fatal disease. Due to its devastating impact on all facets of life, we offer several levels of care, each customized by time, structure, and intensity.

From Detoxification to Residential Treatment, to Day Treatment, to Outpatient Treatment, to Sober Living Environments, Support Systems Homes provides supportive, substance-free environments with varying amounts of structure. Thus, the often-difficult transition into mainstream society can occur while helping clients gain the necessary recovery tools.

Staff and program participants work together as a team to develop individualized treatment plans that treat the person as a whole-body, mind and spirit. You may find yoga in one plan, or music therapy in another. (We have an excellent music therapy program – check our Services page for more on it!)

Every SSH treatment program includes some form of the following, based on your plan: Team-based treatment activities, alcohol and other drug education, exposure to 12 step recovery principles, 12 step programs, and involvement in the local recovery community.

Building a strong network of support is essential for those in recovery. To address this, Support Systems Homes:

  • Founded an alumni association that sponsors year-round social and recreational activities.
  • Created a free, lifetime aftercare program to help keep clients involved in recovery.

If you’re concerned about paying for treatment, you can relax. You’re in the right place for starting your recovery.

At Support Systems Homes, you’ll find the highest-quality treatment for an affordable rate in Northern California.

What does “rehab” cost?

The short answer: It depends. But not as much as you might think.

Costs vary by treatment program. For example, a Day Treatment program requires less of a time commitment than Residential Rehab, so it would cost less. But it could take longer to finish the program.

What’s most important is that you choose a treatment program that suits your needs & your situation.

Saving a few dollars now isn’t worth a painful relapse and slide back into addiction later.
