Celebrating over 40 years of service to individuals, families, and communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Marty Weinstein, CEO, launched BACR's Employee Wellness Program at the Fall Kick-Off in October 2016. A Wellness Committee spearheaded by HR Director, Brenda Cain was formed to plan and organize a 3-year initiative. Since October, managers have been given an orientation and training, and a logo contest produced the winning entry. "Find your Balance" was submitted by Laura Cortez of BACR's DUI Program in Napa.

Just as BACR promotes the healthy development of individuals and families, we promote a culture of health and wellness for our employees.  BACR encourages employees to engage in activities that will enhance their health and wellness as individuals. The Employee Wellness Program works to provide a variety of programs and offerings that address the various components of wellness: mental health, physical, financial, social, and spiritual.  In addition, BACR offers an Employee Assistance Program that provides support in resolving personal issues through a variety of services including counseling services, financial consultations, weight management, stress management, and smoking cessation coaching.  Various other wellness initiatives may be offered at different times, depending on interest level and activities scheduled throughout the Bay Area.

  • Since I've been blessed with the chance to have a good education and many opportunities, I feel obligated to give back and to use the education and the experiences I've had to make an impact.

  • Helping other people is what inspires me to work here. Being able to change people's lives, by helping them understand their problems with alcohol, is a huge contribution to my inspiration here.

  • I know that, if I am able to overcome hard struggles in my life and do my best at achieving success, I can encourage the young people that I advocate to do their best as well.
