About Our Organization
Substance Use Disorder Services (SUDS) is a Contracts Division of the Department of Behavioral Health. We have primary responsibility for administering the County's alcohol and drug programs. Our mission is to support appropriate education, prevention, and treatment services to reduce or eliminate alcohol and other drug related barriers to ongoing health, well being, and economic independence of individuals, families, and communities.
SUDS contracts with over 30 community-based organizations providing alcohol and drug prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery services throughout the County of Fresno. These services are available to any Fresno County resident either through self-referral or referral by a community agency.
How To Use This Guide:
The guide lists contracted programs by the category of services offered. In most cases, programs require the individual seeking admission to directly make the request for service by telephone. At that time, an appointment will be made for an intake interview. Fees for services are determined on an ability to pay basis, and no person should be turned away because of lack of funds at the time of admission. However, contribution to the costs related to program participation is expected as part of the recovery process as the person progresses.
SUDS and its contracted programs are concerned that a high standard of care is always offered to persons seeking recovery for their substance use disorder problems. Please immediately report any incorrect information contained in this guide and any improper conduct by programs listed in this guide to the SUDS - Contract Division at (559) 600-6087.
