Program Description


"Our substance abuse program offers counseling and referral for seniors 55 and older. The first program in San Francisco to recognize the alcohol and drug problems faced by seniors, it remains unique in its philosophy and outreach."

"People ask me a lot, they say what is curry senior center and one of my answers is its a senior center and a health center, its both. You can come here and get breakfast, and then play bingo and then see a nurse in the afternoon."
