Program Description

In collaboration with the County Health Services Agency, local hospitals and the four municipal law enforcement agencies, Santa Cruz County has developed, implemented and monitored a Sobering Center as an alternative to jail incarceration for individuals detained for public intoxication. The recovery center provides a safe environment for individuals who are intoxicated or under the influence of drugs to reduce the costs associated with the use of jails and provide qualified individuals with diversionary services.
