Welcome to the Care Program

On September 29, 2010, the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (now the Department of Health Care Services) was awarded funds from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for a third Access to Recovery (ATR) grant.

ATR is an initiative to allow people in need of substance abuse services to make individual choices in their path to recovery that reflect their personal needs and values. The California Access to Recovery Effort (CARE) program is California’s implementation of the federal ATR grant.

This new award (CARE 3) will provide approximately $2.6 million per year for four years for substance abuse services for youth and young service members/veterans in five target counties (Butte, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Shasta, and Tehama). The program will help address the unmet needs, service gaps, barriers, and disparities that youth and young service members and veterans face in accessing adequate, quality substance abuse services.
