Drug & Alcohol Services
The Behavioral Health Department has fully re-opened all of our locations for in person and walk-in care. We welcome the community back to our clinics, and we look forward to continuing to move towards fully available, safe, and accessible programs either in-person, or by telehealth. At this time, masks, distancing, and screening for COVID-19 will continue to be required at all of our facilities, even for people who have been fully vaccinated.
As a healthcare provider with vulnerable patients, we're continuing these requirements in alignment with recommendations from public health authorities. Our top priority is the safety of our patients, visitors, employees, and community. We will continue to provide updates about Behavioral Health programs and facilities and post the latest information on our COVID-19 page.
