First Chance Sobering Station and Outpatient Services
Many have heard of StarVista’s First Chance Sobering Station. The 24-hour program is an alternative to jail for those arrested for driving under the influence or public intoxication. First Chance counselors provide assessments, case management and coping strategies for clients while they recover from intoxication.
Did you know that First Chance also offers outpatient services for clients with substance use or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders? Referrals to these services are not only provided through law enforcement, but through BHRS, residential treatment programs, hospitals and more. First Chance Outpatient Services offers assessments, individualized treatment plans, counseling and random drug and alcohol testing.
Last year First Chance helped over 2,700 clients. For more information call (650) 689-5597.
