There’s also a residential treatment center exclusively for men nearby.
The official hours of the Salinas outpatient location are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Services are available in both English and Spanish.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Outpatient counseling takes place in both private and group settings, involving families and partners where appropriate. Using theof treatment, an evidence-based approach backed by more than 20 years of research, counseling helps adult men and women develop skills essential to early recovery and relapse prevention. Common issues addressed include anger management, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, communication, self-esteem, and more.
The organization’s state-licensed Driving Under the Influence (DUI) program helps first and multiple offenders gain a better understanding of their drug or alcohol problem as well as the risk inherent in drunk and stoned driving. There’s also a 10-session Family Empowerment Program for loved ones invested in their loved one’s recovery process.
Sun Street Centers is led by a team of departmental directors, program managers, and administrative professionals. The outpatient team includes a marriage and family therapist and a clinical coordinator.
