Our team of multi-cultural, experienced and credentialed staff is dedicated to providing the best care to everyone who enters our doors. Our goal is to uplift the human spirit by providing the skills and support necessary for individuals to achieve their dreams and transform their lives.

Dedicated to working in partnership with the communities and agencies we serve, our philosophy is to empower everyone who comes into contact with us to engage in a process of healing, growth, and change that will benefit them, their families, their coworkers and their communities.

WestCare provides a wide spectrum of health and human services in both residential and outpatient environments. Our Service Domains include:

Mental Health & Wellness: WestCare California is committed to providing mental health services, crisis intervention, wellness planning, & continuing support to every client we serve. Our mental health team travels throughout the state to ensure this is possible. Specific programs for Health & Wellness include: OPTIONS (provides short-term treatment for consumers with psychiatric conditions or co-occurring disorders), Crisis Psychiatric Response Services (offers services to those in need of assessment for involuntary treatment), & The Living Room (dedicated to the well-being of persons infected/affected/at risk of HIV/AIDS).

Treatment & Rehabilitation: WestCare California is dedicated to changing the lives of individuals in need of substance abuse or co-occurring treatment. Through our residential & outpatient services in both Fresno & Bakersfield, as well as our Adolescent Outpatient Drug Treatment program in Hanford, we are able to provide individual & group counseling, education classes, vocational training, relapse prevention, & family support services. WestCare also serves as SASCA Region I, coordinating case management services for substance-abusing parolees through placement & referral to community treatment services. We believe every person is capable of change, & seek to motivate & uplift the human spirit.

Family Solutions: WestCare California focuses on the family first. Through treatment programs such as M'Ella and Papa-Natal, parents and children receive unique services with a holistic approach that strengthens bonds and promotes attachment. Project LiftOff provides housing and addresses the multiple needs of homeless adults & their children. Therapeutic learning, positive parenting, family counseling, and life-skills training are all found at the core of each family solution program.

Veteran's Services: WestCare California's San Joaquin Valley Veterans (SJVV) program treats veterans with both honor and dignity, and empowers them to change their lives one simple step at a time. With transitional living facilities for both males and females, and a drop-in location offering case management, housing services, advocacy & referrals—SJVV makes it their mission to give back to those who have already given so much.

Education & Prevention: WestCare California understands that education & prevention are keys to adult & adolescent success. Our programs such as TREES focus on empowering our youth to lead successful lives. Within our housing for runaway teens, programs for juvenile offenders, and adolescent services in local high schools, WestCare improves the lives of our youth through positive decision making, education, employment, leadership, and relapse prevention. Our experts in their field are also available for public presentations as part of our Speaker's Bureau.
