Landmark Tourist Spot
Market Street is a major thoroughfare in San Francisco, California. It begins at The Embarcadero in front of the Ferry Building at the northeastern edge of the city and runs southwest through downtown, passing the Civic Center and the Castro District, to the intersection with Corbett Avenue in the Twin Peaks neighborhood. Beyond this point, the roadway continues as Portola Drive into the southwestern quadrant of San Francisco. Portola Drive extends south to the intersection of St. Francis Boulevard and Sloat Boulevard, where it continues as Junipero Serra Boulevard.Market Street is the boundary of two street grids. Streets on its southeast side are parallel or perpendicular to Market Street, while those on the northwest are nine degrees off from the cardinal directions.Market Street is a major transit artery for the city of San Francisco, and has carried in turn horse-drawn streetcars, cable cars, electric streetcars, electric trolleybuses, and diesel buses. Today Muni's buses, trolleybuses, and heritage streetcars (on the F Market line) share the street, while below the street the two-level Market Street Subway carries Muni Metro and Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). While cable cars no longer operate on Market Street, the surviving cable car lines terminate to the side of the street at its intersections with California Street and Powell Street.

  • Medication Assisted Treatment with UA testing and counseling gave me the relief, breathing space and knowledge I so desperately needed to begin my recovery. Your help at BAART helped me break bad habits and replace them with the spiritual development i thought was gone. Even when i relapsed you went above and beyond the call of duty to literally save my life and lovingly bring me back to my senses; by getting my attention and giving me simple instructions to follow up out of my downward spiral. I continue to be committed to my recovery because i can face and participate in my own life as well as others. I am now able to help myself and others, where in the past i hurt myself and others. Although some of my greatest challenges have come during recovery, i can now clear away wreckage and rebuild my life. Thank you for your continuing help and support.
  • In the many arrangements of our alphabets, words cannot be found in Webster’s to express. . . “What the BAART Clinic means to me.” In today’s time, water has brought great tribulation . . . from Tsunami to Katrina and the most current Dean hurricane. Nevertheless . . . man has been able to overcome many tribulations that can come from water by way of bridges. Like a bridge over troubled waters, “The BAART Clinic” has allowed me to cross over the dangers of my troubled waters (drugs). BAART has directed me to move from the land of no purpose . . . to a new land of great . . . hope. Without “The BAART Clinic”, I’d be like a person trying to go from one land to another . . . without the assistance of a bridge. Thank you.
  • Great program, and wonderful staff
  • My aunt Peyton constantly obsessed about Darvocet. Going to this program showed her how to beat dependency.
