Bonita House, Inc. (BHI) is a private non-profit
mental health agency offering a range of services for adults diagnosed with
co-occurring psychiatric disabilities and substance use disorders. Services
include intensive residential treatment, supported independent living, housing
and supported employment, outpatient case management, wellness centers, and
healthcare clinic services.
BHI provides expert specialized services to some
of society's most vulnerable members: people living with co-occurring disorders.
Most people we work with have more than two major conditions that significantly
impact their lives. Someone with schizophrenia and alcohol dependence may also
have PTSD, and use crack cocaine and marijuana. All of these issues must be
recognized and addressed at the same time, in the same place.
Based on a social rehabilitation,
strengths-based treatment model, Bonita House was developed in 1971 as a humane
alternative to traditional psychiatric institutionalization.
Since 1971, BHI has evolved into a specialized
dual-diagnosis agency for Alameda County community mental health clients. We
are also able to take private referrals into our residential treatment and
supported independent living programs. We work with clients and their families
We know that when evidence-based practices are
used within a nurturing, respectful community, recovery from both disorders is
real and attainable.
