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 offer walk-clinic hours for anyone seeking help. If you or someone you care about is struggling with addiction, please attend a screening so we can offer you support and connection to services. 

Please see the table below for specific Adult (18+) hours, and specific Youth screening times for people under the age of 18. Youth clients are assessed by staff in the Prevention and Outreach Division, and can be seen in Drug & Alcohol Services locations as well as at the South Street office in San Luis Obispo.

Is there a charge for this service?

Outpatient treatment costs are covered under Medi-Cal and other participants costs will be based on a sliding fee scale.  Private insurance coverage will need to be determined by the individual participant and their insurance provider.

Some services may be covered under other funding sources such as a CWS referral or specialized grants.  Please ask when applying for services if that may be an option for you.

When and where is this service offered?

This service is available throughout the year during regular business hours except during scheduled holidays.

All clinics offer walk-in services, shown below.  However, please call for assistance or for an alternative time if needed.  You can also choose to register for treatment services, Mondays - Fridays, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, in any office and you will be scheduled to see a Specialist individually at a later date.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get help after hours?

We have a 24-hour hotline you can call 1 (800) 838-1381. This number will connect you with local support in San Luis Obispo County, offering screening and help connecting you with services for drug and alcohol treatment and mental health.

How do I know if I have a problem with substances? How do I know if someone I love has a problem with substances (alcohol or drugs)?

Addiction can look very different from one person to the next. Our screening looks for how using substances has negatively impacted your life: losing relationships, losing housing, experiencing legal problems, spending all your time or money on substances, hiding your use, or experiencing a desire or urge to use the substance to name a few.

We look at eleven (11) different criteria and multiple dimensions of your life to thoroughly evaluate whether or not you or someone you love is experiencing a substance use disorder. Our purpose is to help people determine if they need help and then get connected to the services that will improve their life.

What if I’m not ready for treatment? What if my family member isn’t ready?

Many people come in for screening who are not ready for treatment. Sometimes they choose to be in treatment due to legal consequences (having probation or child welfare mandate that they attend services). Sometimes they choose not to participate in services.

Our philosophy is to provide education and information so that you or someone you love has options. We don’t want people who are struggling to feel alone or isolated. Many people struggle with addiction. We know treatment works and can help people live a happier, healthier life when they are ready. Drug and Alcohol Services does not force anyone to participate in services. 

Please contact our access line at 1 (800) 838-1381 for information or to schedule an appointment. All services are available in Spanish.
