Medically Managed Detox Program
Residential Treatment Program
Waterfront Recovery Services is the first detox program certified by the State of California Department of Health Care Services to provide medically assisted treatment for drug and alcohol withdrawal.
Includes withdrawal treatment for alcohol, opiates, methamphetamine, benzodiazepine and combinations substances. We use the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and dimensions of care to develop an individualized treatment plan. Our evidence based programs include the Matrix System.
We provide residential treatment for men and women to help understand addiction, learn healthy coping skills and to prepare them for return to the community.

Stacy Smith, Intake Coordinator
Stacy Smith is one of the first people new arrivals to Waterfront Recovery Services will meet. Having worked here in detox, as a counselor and helping in the front office, Stacy finds her role as Intake Coordinator rewarding. “I love helping people. I remember feeling that desperate. When people are having hard times and I’m the first person they talk to, I give them the sense that everything is going to be ok. It’s that genuine empathetic compassionate conversation that you have with them.”
Stacy has always gravitated towards helping professions, previously working as a CNA, home health provider and end of life care giver. She enjoys advocating for people who aren’t able to advocate for themselves.
Our lobby is dedicated to co-founder John McManus. Thanks for your help, Piersons Building Center!
