Men's Recovery Services
Bakersfield Recovery Services programs are 12-Step based, social model programs that emphasize accountability and individual responsibility.
Clients study the 12-Step program pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous and now used by Narcotics Anonymous and other groups, with special emphasis on the first four steps.
Clients attend daily meetings, find 12-Step sponsors and build strong 12-Step support groups.
Bakersfield Recovery Services now has four full time therapists on site providing a wide range of services. Including assessments, treatment planing, group counseling, and individual sessions. Bakersfield Recovery Services now has over fifteen registered and certified counselors.
Jason’s retreat currently serves 30 adult men. The activities center is located in the original two story house where the clients reside and also includes a large dining room and community kitchen. We also provide centrally located sober living homes and counseling offices nearby.

My name is Raymond Juarez. I am a 40 year old Bakersfield native who has been in and out of the system for many years. I had chosen to live a life that included drugs and crime. AB109 and my time at Jason’s Retreat has allowed me to become the man that I am today. I have been able to learn copping skills and a new way of life.
The program at Jason’s Retreat has assisted me in being a more responsible, productive individual in the community. The staff at the program assisted me in finding out what kind of life that I really needed to live. The program allowed me to begin taking positive step and making smart choices in my personal life. Because of the program, I am now employed with a full-time job and I was able to move into my own apartment because of the abstinence I have sustained and the money I was able to save.
I am truly grateful for all the support that I received from the new family that I gained at Jason’s Retreat and Bakersfield Recovery Services. I would not be where I am today without them.
