Support for addiction recovery and community

a place to belong and grow

Recovery Café San José (RCSJ) is a healing community for those traumatized by homelessness, addiction, and mental health challenges. Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, RCSJ is a place where anyone seeking recovery support can come for meals, classes, community resources, and to build positive relationships.

Recovery Circles – small weekly peer support and accountability groups – form the base of our programming. Through the Circles, each member comes to be deeply known and supported by at least one staff member or volunteer facilitator.

Our School for Recovery includes such classes as WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan), Emotional Growth, Finding Meaningful Work, Cooking Skills, and Nonviolent Communication.

Launching in Spring 2018 is our Barista Training program, getting our members ready for careers in coffee service. Our Career Readiness activities will be expanded to Commercial Kitchen Training later in the year.

Art, music, yoga, connections to community resources, guest speakers, and special events and activities fill out each day's schedule, and the day is framed by Group Meals. And there's always plenty of coffee and social activity.

Since opening in April 2014 RCSJ has supported over 1,200 individuals in their recovery, helping them reach such goals as returning to school, improved health, family reunification, and achieving the stability to gain - and maintain - housing and employment.
