San Francisco to consider offering free drug recovery books at libraries

A new proposal would expand on a pilot program already distributing addiction recovery books.

San Francisco is planning to offer free drug recovery books at public libraries as part of an initiative to combat the city’s drug overdose crisis.

Driving the news: A pilot program has already distributed over 3,200 addiction recovery books in the city’s main library and two branches.


  • San Francisco City Supervisor Matt Dorsey has introduced legislation to expand the pilot program to all 28 public libraries in the city.
  • If approved, San Francisco would be the first city in the nation to provide universal access to free drug recovery books.
  • The initiative aims to provide resources for individuals struggling with addiction and substance abuse disorder in San Francisco.
  • The proposed legislation suggests offering a range of recovery books in all available languages without the requirement of a library card.
