Golden Gate for Seniors (GGS) is the only program of its kind in the San Francisco area, offering a residential recovery facility designed to help men and women 55 years of age and older achieve a more meaningful life free from drugs and alcohol. Golden Gate for Seniors provides a setting needed to obtain a more meaningful life free from alcohol and drugs. Residents stay an average of six months in the center, while following an individually tailored recovery plan, which includes counseling and case management, 12-step meetings, education on alcohol and other drugs, sound health practices and development of interests and activities that are conducive to a sober lifestyle.
