Drug & Alcohol Services Walk In Clinics


Please read the following information so you know how to continue to receive services during the temporary COVID-19 public health emergency. Some Behavioral Health programs may require additional forms to be completed. Please reach out to your treatment team with questions and concerns.

Telehealth over Zoom for Health

To avoid a delay in completing your treatment program, County of San Luis Obispo Behavioral Health will begin offering Remote Client Services. Remote Client Services will enable you to continue program with a certified counselor via a virtual meeting platform called Zoom.

In order to help you participate in Zoom Remote Client Services, we have created user-friendly instructions and tutorials found here. Your treatment team will be in contact with you over email with a web link so you may join your sessions virtually through a computer, tablet, or phone.

Who can use this service?

We are still offering and providing services to anyone seeking help. If you or someone you care about is struggling with addiction, please call one of our clinics to schedule a screening, so we can offer you support and connection to services. 

Following Public Health guidelines, all visitors will be screened for symptoms and have their temperature taken by a staff member upon entry. Masks must be worn in our clinics. Telephone and telehealth services will continue to be available at all clinic locations, if you are sick or experiencing any symptoms, please stay home and call for services. 

 

During walk-in clinic, you will receive a screening in a one-to-one individual session with a qualified Specialist to help you decide what level and what kind of behavioral health treatment may be beneficial to you. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and Detoxification screening can be completed at each regional walk-in session or call the clinic for more information or an appointment as needed.

 

Please note that all walk-ins are on a first-come, first-served basis, with no appointment necessary. If there are too many people before you, you may be asked to schedule another appointment via telephone, Zoom for HealthCare, or in-person.

 

You can fill out the Drug & Alcohol Intake Packet before your visit.

This can be found at www.slodas.org under Forms & Documents.
