Clean & Sober Recovery Services (CSRS) offers dignified and respectful treatment options in both a residential and intensive outpatient treatment setting. Located one mile away from the CSTL recovery community, residents of the CSRS treatment center become familiar with the support sytem offered at CSTL.
During residential treatment, clients at the treatment center will attend meetings in our central Meeting House and possibly find their sponsor among our 120 residents. Many CSRS residents choose to transition directly from residential treatment to the CSTL community because it is familiar to them, and they have seen the strength of intentionally-designed recovery housing.
SAMHSA's mission is to build resilience and facilitate recovery for people with or at risk for substance abuse and mental illness.
The ADP seeks to reduce alcohol and other drug problems by developing, administering, and supporting prevention and treatment programs in California.
What is SACPA?: On November 7, 2000, California voters approved Proposition 36, the Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act of 2000 (SACPA). The law became effective statewide on July 1, 2001. Under SACPA, first or second time non-violent adult drug offenders who use, possess, or transport illegal drugs for personal use will receive drug treatment rather than incarceration. Implementation of SACPA has required a new model of collaboration between the criminal justice system and public health agencies to promote treatment as a more appropriate and effective alternative for illegal drug use.
- SACPA was designed to:
- Preserve jail and prison cells for serious and violent offenders;
- Enhance public safety by reducing drug-related crime; and
- Improve public health by reducing drug abuse through proven and effective treatment strategies
