WATERFRONT RECOVERY SERVICES (WRS)

Waterfront Recovery Services (WRS) is a 56-bed medically managed detoxification and residential addiction treatment center located at 2413 2nd Street, Eureka, CA at the former Multiple Assistance Center next to Target.

The facility was jointly operated by Alcohol and Drug Care Services (ADCS) and Redwood Community Action Agency (RCAA) for the first year. This unique partnership allowed for comprehensive substance use disorder treatment from a multi-disciplinary team and aftercare services which include assistance with life skills, employment, education, family reunification, and housing. WRS is currently operated by ADCS; RCAA subcontracts with Humboldt County Probation to provide case management services to probationer WRS clients as they graduate the residential program and move out on their own.

WRS was made possible by a $1.6 million dollar grant funded by Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH), the newly formed health system that includes St. Joseph Health, Humboldt County, and Well Being Trust, a new national foundation seeded by PSJH that is committed to advancing mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Partnership HealthPlan of California also contributed funding, and the city of Eureka provided the building.

Please contact (707) 269-9590 for more information on how to enter into the residential treatment program.

Youth

California Youth Empowerment Network (CAYEN)
CAYEN represents a steering committee from across the state of California. These are youth and young adults ages 16-25 who have been touched by the mental health, juvenile justice, or foster care systems. These three groups of young people have many cross-cutting issues, so while CAYEN focuses on mental health policy we work with our partners to bridge the gaps between the three systems.
