Substance Use Services

Placer County utilizes Motivational Interviewing approaches to discuss substance use services with you. This means our services are based on your needs. Whether you are contemplating a change or are ready to take action in your treatment, our staff will meet you where you are at in that process.

We recognize that some people struggle to know if they have a problem, let alone how to access support, while others know they have a problem with a substance. We also recognize that treatment can begin at any point of this journey. Whether you are court referred or feel pressured into treatment, or are coming voluntarily, you will be met with attention, compassion, and respect when discussing any further steps or actions. Placer County staff look forward to helping explore recovery with you. View the substance use services brochure (PDF) for more information.

  1. Screening Clinics
  2. Resources

The Screening Clinic is a free, drop-in, first-come, first-served resource to all Placer County residents. View a flyer (PDF).

The purpose of Screening Clinic is to initially screen for substance use issues and make recommendations regarding resources, services and treatment options. At times the recommendations identify additional needs and some people will be referred from Screening Clinic to Assessment and Intake, while others are referred directly to treatment programs.
