Breaking new Ground for
Helen Vine Recovery Center

Breaking new Ground... Helen Vine Recovery Center

Just like good recovery programs, a new building requires a solid foundation and a little digging. The new Helen Vine Center is on its way! On July 12th, San Rafael Mayor Gary Philips joined the Buckelew team and our community partners for the official groundbreaking ceremony at the new site, just down the street from the center's current location.
