With facilities in Newark and Hayward, California, Second Chance is a behavioral health organization that was founded in 1971. It offers flexible outpatient programs for substance abuse to both court-ordered and self-referred clients.

Treatment and Staff

Before beginning treatment, clients undergo an initial intake and assessment so that an individualized treatment plan can be developed. While specifics such as treatment length and frequency may vary, programming works within the structure of individual and group therapy rooted in evidence-based practices, such as CBT. Groups cover relapse prevention, stress management, coping skills, trigger identification and codependency. The facility also offers specialized groups for co-occurring disorders, PTSD, smoking cessation, gender-specific recovery and grief support. While 12-step participation is not strictly required, clients are encouraged to attend off-site AA/NA meetings.

The staff consists of LMFTs, CADCs and additional Master’s-level clinicians.


Aside from the above, the facility also offers support to homeless clientele as well as therapy for victims of domestic violence. Other options include DUI/DWI programs, AIDS education, anger management courses and more. Standalone assessments and drug tests are also offered.

In Summary

Overall, Second Chance provides community-oriented treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Programs are individualized and include evidence-based practices and gender-specific care as necessary. For those in the area seeking affordable treatment, Second Chance is worth considering.
