Recovery is possible.

Sitike Counseling Center opened its doors in 1988 - born of a passionate commitment to offer hope and healing to people whose lives are affected by addition and mental illness. The name of the agency - SITIKE - is an Apache word for a group of non-blood kin who are present in a time of crisis.

Our vision is a community where diversity, compassion, healing and growth are encouraged, valued and celebrated. The devastating effects of substance abuse, mental illness and violence are diminished and relationships, families and children thrive.

Throughout our 32-year history, we have provided services to thousands of Bay Area residents whose lives have been impacted by drug and alcohol addiction, mental illness and intimate partner violence. We serve a unique, complex and diverse client population who often need support in addressing a variety of intersecting issues that can include trauma, chronic health issues, housing insecurity/homelessness, and legal and occupational challenges.

Through counseling and education, our programs aim to: offer evidence-based, safe and affordable treatments with demonstrated results, address the needs of the whole person, support clients in establishing and maintaining their sobriety, reduce the frequency and severity of mental health symptoms, interrupt the cycle of violence and end intimate partner abuse, facilitate the development of natural support networks, provide direct teaching of coping skills and assist clients in increasing self-awareness, and support clients in improving overall wellness and quality of life.
