About Ford Street Project

Reviewed by Our Contributors


Located in Ukiah, Calif., Ford Street Project offers residential and outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder. The facility also offers medical detox, which is provided by only 15 percent of non-hospital-based residential treatment facilities in California. Other services offered by Ford Street Project include sober living, emergency shelter, low-cost housing, case management services, and a food pantry to homeless and low-income families.


To be admitted, clients can call the facility for information on applying to Ford Street Project, or may download an application from the facility’s website. Residential treatment may last anywhere from one to six months; the rehab is among the 33.6 percent of facilities in California to offer long-term residential programming that lasts longer than 30 days.

The Ford Street Project website states that clients in the residential substance abuse treatment program receive three meals a day and transportation to local appointments.

In addition to the residential and outpatient programs, Ford Street Project offers vocational services that include training in areas such as organic gardening, commercial kitchen operations, warehouse organization and distribution, and credit repair. In 2017, 46.1 percent of treatment facilities in California provided employment counseling or training for its clients.


Although there is no information available regarding staff credentials, 98.3 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities in California have continuing education requirements for staff.


Ford Street Project offers 40 beds for clients in residential and detoxification treatment, and 22 beds for clients in need of a sober living environment. Clients are provided on-site laundry facilities, laundry soap, bedding, and toiletries.


Katrina, the one former client surveyed by to date, gave Ford Street Project positive feedback. Describing the program as "helpful," she awarded the facility five out of five stars in most categories evaluated, including its staff's level of training and availability, the overall quality of its counseling, the frequency and consistency of its meetings, and its holistic offerings.

Ford Street Project also fared well on secondary sites, earning an average rating of 4.2 out of five stars based on five Google reviews[1] and a 4.7 out of five star rating based on the opinions of 12 individuals on Facebook[2]. "I spent 60 days here , in those 2 months the ukiah recovery center hooked me up with the tools I needed to become a productive member of society," wrote Charles in a representative review on Facebook.


S.R., the one staff member polled by at the time of this writing, gave the facility negative feedback. In addition to indicating that the treatment was ineffective, they noted that fellow staff were unprofessional. "Horrible behavior by the supervisors...talking about clients in the presence of other clients," they wrote.

This behavior appears to be supported by comments on CiteHealth[3], where Ford Street Project earned an average rating of just 1.2 out of five stars based on six reviews. "This place is a horrible place...counselors whispering about other counselors in front of clients...staff openly talking about clients in front of other clients...highly unethical," an anonymous staffer wrote in a representative review.


There is currently no information provided by Ford Street Project regarding its costs. However, the one alum polled by to date indicated that her stay was paid for by state funding.
