I had given up on life, I had given up on my family, and most of all, I had given up on me. That was the mindset I had when entering Project Ninety. Being a part of something so special has given me a sense of purpose and the necessary structure in my life today.

This program provides tools in order to live life on life's terms and I am proud to be an example of that.

Today, I dedicate my life to helping others and I am determined to continue to show others that this program works.

I came to Project 90 with broken thinking, lost values, hopelessness and despair.  As I grew here at Project 90, I discovered what honesty, commitment and values really are.  Today, my future is bright and I am full of hope and understanding of my part in life.  Project 90 will forever be close to my heart, without Project 90 and all I learned and experienced, I would be just a fractured shell of my true self.

I only knew one thing when I came to Project 90; I knew that I didn't want the life I had been living anymore.  It was a life filled with hopelessness and despair.  In a nutshell, my life consisted of jails, drama and chaos.  I had reached a place of almost accepting; this is what my life had been reduced to . . . until I found Project 90.  Project Ninety gave me a time to pause from all of the madness to examine where I was and where I wanted to go in life and the chance to change my way of thinking and behaving that was keeping me stuck in that ineffectual way of living.  Project 90 gave me hope and belief in myself that I could still do anything that I wanted to do as long as I was willing to put the work in for it and that I never, ever have to go back to using again.  It is a wonderful gift that I now get the opportunity as a Counselor here at Project 90 to show individuals the new way of life that was shown to me.  Thanks, Project Ninety.  I am forever grateful.

I was in the San Mateo County jail, depressed, lonely, I was out of ideas.  There was only one thing I had not tried, this thing called "Recovery."  I made the decision to give Project Ninety an honest try.  I fell in love with Project Ninety and everything it stands for. Today, I am happy, determined, and full of life!

I was struggling with the disease of alcoholism and addiction. I called Project Ninety and asked them for help. They took all my responsibilities away when I entered the program, and slowly gave them back to me. They showed me how to live life free from alcohol and drugs. They helped me work on my anger, and childhood issues that caused me to drink and use drugs. Today, I am 14 years clean and sober. Thanks to Project Ninety!

I came to Project Ninety tired of the life I had been living for most of my adult life. It consisted of jail, being homeless, and no self-respect. Being in recovery has taught me how to live and become a productive member of society which I wanted so much, but was impossible due to my drug use. I have learned that this road is a long one, but together, all of us will win back our self-respect and being walking our new road to this beautiful thing called life.  Thanks to Project Ninety, I have been walking this road for a number of years now because of my decision to change me life.

"Welcome to Project Ninety. You are in the right place!"

This is heard at Project Ninety facilities on a daily basis in South San Francisco, San Mateo, and San Jose. Adult men and women, who are at any of these locations, are provided with an opportunity to change their lives in a very welcoming environment. Project Ninety prides itself on being a place where men and women can receive treatment services in a safe, compassionate, and comfortable environment.

The “Ninety” in Project Ninety refers to two things. The first is one of the pillars of the program is folks new in recovery attend 90 twelve step meetings over 90 consecutive days. Secondly, our standard length of treatment is 90 days. Miracles do happen during this time frame.

Thousands of individuals have begun the process of change in our program. Project Ninety is only a catalyst. It is the men and women who choose to take the opportunity provided for them that are responsible for their transformation. Lives are changed. Families and communities are strengthened. Absolutely everybody benefits from an individual becoming and remaining clean and sober.

We invite you to navigate our website. Whether it is because you are well aware of Project Ninety and just want to see what we are up to or you are seeking help for yourself, a loved one, or an employee. Though the information here is helpful, please give us a call with any questions. The decision to seek recovery for yourself or others is not easy and we will be happy to talk with you about what to expect.

What you will know is that if you or someone you care for does enter treatment at Project Ninety, Inc, the phrase “You are in the right place!”, will resonate on a daily basis.

We wish you well in your endeavors.

In Friendship,

Project Ninety, Inc.

Project Ninety, Inc.

For more than three decades, Project Ninety, Inc. has served individuals, families and the Bay Area community through its residential alcohol and substance abuse treatment services. What began in 1972 as a humble idea has grown into a premier human services organization with over 200 treatment beds. We are a California Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) licensed, nonprofit residential substance abuse treatment program with facilities in two Northern California counties (Santa Clara and San Mateo).

 

Through the years, Project Ninety has treated more than 20,000 individuals suffering from the disease of addiction.  Project Ninety’s services are designed to treat the diverse communities in which we live. We provide services to adult men and women whose circumstances are varied. They might be homeless, highly educated/skilled, and straight from prison or jail, unemployable or have limited language skills. All these people have an addiction to substances in common, regardless of their socioeconomic standing, race, cultural background, education, age, or their life experience.

 

Is treatment cost effective?  Research has shown that every dollar spent on substance abuse treatment saves seven dollars in other taxpayer-supported services. These tax-driven services include frequent emergency room visits, use of emergency responders, psychiatric services and jails/prisons — just to name a few. Statistics also indicate that approximately eleven million children in the United States live in homes where there is at least one parent that is a substance abuser.

 

Project Ninety, through its treatment, helps reduce the burden addiction has on the community. The community includes families, children, neighbors, and employers. To add perspective for those who support Project Ninety financially: a donation helps the community in both tangible and intangible ways that far exceed the actual monetary contribution. Treatment has a true exponential effect; research shows treatment can reduce domestic violence, truancy, traffic fatalities, crime, unwanted pregnancies, child abuse, HIV, and even heart disease.

 

Many come to Project Ninety without any family to speak of. Through the process of recovery, individuals learn that new relationships can be forged. These ties are often referred to as “new” family. Like the traditional family, these alliances are supportive, nurturing, and vital to success — be it in recovery, professionally, or spiritually. Project Ninety’s dedicated staff reflects diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds and includes bilingual employees. Attesting to the commitment of staff, about a third of Project Ninety’s employees have been with the agency for more than seven years. Many staff members are also recovering addicts themselves, putting into direct practice the concept of one addict helping another.

 

Project Ninety has been recognized both locally and around the state for its continued success and contribution to the community. In each of the counties where Project Ninety provides services it is recognized as being cost effective and highly successful.

  

Project Ninety’s name is based on a Twelve Step tradition of 90 meetings in 90 days. Research has shown that significant improvement in recovery happens at three months. Project Ninety is proud of its programs based on this concept, and of the impact they have not only on clients, but on families and the community as well.
