Welcome to Sound Bite Q, the column that thanks advertisers who support SFGN. We invite you to support them, because without their outreach to us, we would not be here to reach out to you. More importantly, local papers only survive in our busy world because we are all connected to each other. For me, this column does more than encourage you to patronize one of SFGN’s advertisers. It lets you know a little more about our friends and enables you to feel a little more comfortable using their services with the limited dollars you have.

SFGN welcomes to its pages a number of new advertisers in a variety of fields, a clear indication our newspaper represents a diverse but professional class of businessmen and entrepreneurs.

The Beachcomber

When James Bryan founded the Beachcomber in 1976, he had one mission. With the support of his staff he set out to help those who suffered with the pain of alcohol and drug addiction.

The Beachcomber has come a long way since then. Almost forty years later it is a facility that continues to operate with a dynamic efficiency and compassion, carrying out the vision Jim Bryan sought.

Recently, it has expanded their facilities and resources in order to help more of those in need. The Beachcomber now offers outpatient services to all clients who seek treatment. With an emphasis on holistic treatment and structure, the Beachcomber’s outpatient services give you the tools you will need to stay sober. Check out their website at TheBeachcomberRehabilitation.com.

Not so much because of disclosure but because they deserve the accreditation, let me put a professional stamp of approval on their facilities and treatment. As a drug defense lawyer for decades, of course I have had many clients in need of treatment. One of the first places I call, and one I highly recommend, long before they ever became advertisers here at SFGN, was The Beachcomber. 

It takes a patient to want to get better, but you can’t get better treatment than the team the Beachcomber puts together.
