The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission has served the county and city of Santa Barbara for 50 years, providing emergency services and long-term recovery for the homeless and addicted.  With 80 beds for men and 20 for women and children, we are the only emergency shelter that is open 365 nights of the year from Santa Maria to Ventura.  In 2014, we provided 145,669 meals and 56,538 safe nights of shelter for individuals with no place else to turn.
Because substance abuse has a sizable impact on our community and is often a contributing factor to homelessness, we focus 85% of our resources on recovery efforts employing both outpatient and residential modalities.  The Mission's 12-month residential recovery program aims to bring individuals from decades of addiction, institutionalization, and homelessness back to sobriety, health and wholeness.  Certification through the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs ensures that participants receive the highest standard of treatment in a non-medical facility.  The recovery programs are operated in two separate (24 W. Arrellaga and 535 E. Yanonali St.) gender-specific locations for 45 men and 24 women.  In 2014, 41 people completed the recovery program, joining over 464 graduates since 2000.  Our most significant accomplishment is the long-term change we see in our graduates.  In contrast to national statistics that show only 21% of those who complete addiction recovery programs not returning to dependency within five years (SAMHSA, 1998), more than 55% of our graduates maintain recovery over this same time period.
The Rescue Mission's comprehensive programs include outpatient services, family support, addiction education, relapse prevention, transitional housing, career development and placement. Graduates from the Mission are restored to health and productivity and reenter society as responsible, committed parents and citizens.

 Men's Recovery
Men's Residential Treatment Program
The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission's Men's Residential Treatment Program is a 12-month, faith-centered, 12-step social model program. Residents are provided with a living and learning environment that addresses the issues of addiction in a holistic way. The program's core tenet is that recovery occurs in relationships with God, others, and self.
The Rescue Mission provides a safe environment that promotes healthy relationships and a staff of professionals who understand the needs and challenges of men seeking recovery.

Womens's Recovery
Santa Barbara Rescue Mission's Bethel House 12-Month Women's Residential Treatment Program
The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission's Bethel House Women's Residential Treatment Program is a 12-month, faith-centered, 12-step social model program. Residents are provided with a living and learning environment that addresses the issues of addiction in a holistic way.
The program's core tenet is that recovery occurs in relationships with God, others, and self. Therefore, the Rescue Mission provides a safe environment that promotes healthy relationships and a staff of professionals who understand the needs and challenges of women seeking recovery.  Bethel House, the women's treatment center, is situated close to downtown Santa Barbara in a residential area.  The women enjoy the warmth of a home setting in two large buildings joined by a cozy garden patio. The loving environment enhances the possibility of recovery from years of painful experiences. Our commitment is to love our residents while they learn to love themselves.
