Drug & Alcohol Services Walk In Clinics

Who is eligible?

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.

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.

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.

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.
