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 program. 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.

Art, music, yoga and special events and activities fill out each day's schedule, and the day is framed by Community Meals. And there's always plenty of coffee and social activity.

Also onsite is our 8-bed Residential Recovery Program, in partnership with the County Reentry Center, providing 6 months of transitional housing to those returning to the community from incarceration and desirous of the support our daily programs offer.

Since opening in April 2014 RCSJ has supported many hundreds of individuals in their recovery, helping them reach such goals as family reunification, and achieving the stability to gain - and maintain - housing and employment.
