Attachment-Based Addiction Treatment Outpatient Program (ABAT)
Opening Fall 2021
The Attachment-Based Addiction Treatment (ABAT) model is based on a simple proposal: people develop a secure attachment to substances to self-soothe when key adults can’t see us or respond to our needs accurately.
If you have tried more traditional substance use treatment approaches and haven’t been successful, primarily because you couldn’t allow assistance or support from others, YOU are OUR Kind of Person!
If this is your first attempt at recovery, we would recommend that you consider a traditional treatment option first as it IS effective for many people.

An offbeat take on news in the addiction recovery field
Mary Crocker Cook, Program Coordinator for the San Jose City College Alcohol and Drug Studies Program, and Gary Montrezza, Executive Director of Pathway Society share their take on the ever-developing, and sometimes really odd, news and shifts in the addiction treatment field. Part education and news stories, and part improvisational reactions to the same stories, Mary and Gary entertain as well as inform. Honestly, they find themselves and each other hilarious and encourage the listener to join them in their lively discussions. Each podcast episode will address:
Drugs: Why would you use that to get high?
News in Addiction Treatment
Ethics Code Game: Addiction counselors acting badly are violating WHICH ethical code?
Relapse Prevention: Interesting Ways People are Staying Sober
Humility check moment this week
