    We offer the LifeSTAR Bay Area Program, based on Dr. Patrick Carnes research.
    We are an outpatient program meeting in the staff offices. The Program has three Phases: Phase 1 meets in a conference room, and is much like an informal class with a leacture, dialogue with the clients, and workbooks for homework. Both addicts and partners are present.
    Phase 2 meets in a clinician's office, addicts together as well as partners meeting together. The workbooks and other tasks take the client to a deeper understanding of their unique situation.
    Phase 3 continues with intensive work on childhood experiences and trauma.
    Couples Coach aid the couple with successful communication and disclosure.
