Rehabilitation and Recovery

Pick the Right Rehab, Reclaim Your Life!  


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.

Dr. Ruby Bayan, addiction Psychiatrist, serves as the medical director for the facility which will feature multi-disciplinary staff including RN's, LVN's, substance use disorder counselors, mental health clinicians, and case managers.  The WRS/ADCS Executive Director is John McManus.

The facility was jointly operated by Alcohol and Drug Care Services (ADCS) and Redwood Community Action Agency (RCAA) for the first year. The unique partnership allowed for comprehensive substance use disorder treatment from a multi-disciplinary team and after care services which include assistance with life skills, employment, education, family reunification and housing.  The Waterfront program is currently run by ADCS, and RCAA is subcontracted to do after care case management with the clients as they 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.

"Recovery emerges from hope in the knowledge that people can and do overcome internal and external challenges."


Humboldt County has some of the highest rates in the state for drug and alcohol related outcomes such as liver disease, cirrhosis, mortality due to alcohol and other drugs, suicide and unintentional injuries. WRS will fill a significant gap in care in our community. Prior to WRS, detoxification services were limited to the 11-bed social detox, located on C street in Eureka, which required medical clearance at the Emergency Department prior to entry. The program was often full with a waiting list and the facility - an old Victorian house - would not meet criteria for drug Medi-Cal certification. The new WRS facility meets drug Medi-Cal certification standards and ADCS is in the process of applying for certification from the Department of Health Care Services.

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.
