A Message From Our Director

last_two_img_1_5Welcome to the Bayside Marin website, and thank you for your interest in our program.

At Bayside Marin, we know that addiction is an insidious disease that can wreak devastation on individuals and families. Perhaps more importantly, we also know there is a path to a brighter tomorrow – a path that hundreds of Bayside alumni are successfully walking today.

Whether you are researching treatment options for yourself or someone you love, you have already taken an important first step along that path. You’ve acknowledged the problem, and begun the search for the program that best meets your needs. I know that’s never an easy step to take, and I commend you for this accomplishment.

Elsewhere on this website, you can read about the many elements that make Bayside Marin such a special place. Elements such as the Bayside Model (an innovative treatment plan that has earned national recognition), our commitment to clinical excellence, and the many luxuries and amenities that will be available to you throughout your say with us.

On this page, I’d like to take just a moment to talk not about programs or philosophies, but about people. Because I have no doubt that our rich history of successful treatment is a direct result of the talented and dedicated men and women who come to work here every day with one focus.

If you choose Bayside Marin, I want to emphasize that you will never be a passive recipient of treatment, or “just another patient.” Instead, you will benefit from working in active partnership with a team of talented professionals whose skills are surpassed only by their dedication and compassion. You will be involved in every aspect of your treatment, from setting personal goals to developing the strategies that will enable you to achieve those goals.

And every step of the way, you will have the guidance and support of a world-class team of treatment professionals. Guided by our core principles, backed by research, and based on continued improvements in the science of addiction treatment, this patient-provider collaboration has helped thousands of men and women – and we’re confident that it can make a real and lasting difference in your life, too.

When you enter treatment at Bayside Marin, you join a dynamic community of professionals, fellow patients, and alumni. This community extends far beyond our property, and your membership continues long after you have completed your residence with us.

Our ultimate goal is that the day you arrive at Bayside Marin is the day you begin your pursuit of a healthier and much more fulfilling future, free from the chains of addiction.

If this sounds like something you’d like to learn more about, please feel free to call us (888) 246-9237or visit our Contact page at your convenience.

On behalf of the entire Bayside Marin team, I wish you and your family all the best.
