Substance Use Prevention and Treatment Services

​​​​ ​​​​​​help.jpgWe provide prevention and treatment services for substance (alcohol and drugs) use disorders. We contract with an array of community-based service providers throughout Sacramento County. The range of services provided through these organizations includes prevention services, outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient services, medication-assisted treatment, withdrawal management (detoxification), residential treatment, recovery residences, and more. Services are available for youth, young adults, perinatal/parenting women, adults, and seniors. Services will be provided to meet your cultural and language needs free of charge.

Overdose: Do not hesitate to call 911 for medical emergencies involving substance use. If you or someone you know has overdosed, calling 911 as soon as possible could help save a life. Naloxone (Narcan®) is medication that could immediately counter the effects of an opioid/heroin overdose. You can administer it while someone is overdosing and should call 911 immediately. Many emergency personnel carry it with them, and it is also available from select pharmacies without a prescription. Ask your health care provider or local pharmacy for more information
