On behalf of Kern Behavioral Health and Recovery Services and our substance abuse treatment provider community, We welcome you to theses pages where you will be able to access information about the impact of drug and alcohol use on our communities.
We also provide you with information about resources available to help those in our community who are affected by drug and alcohol use.
We do believe that drug addiction is treatable and we promote the use of interventions that have proven to work at reducing or eliminating substance use.
We also believe that drug use is preventable and you will learn about community efforts that seek to prevent drug use by presenting opportunities for youth to engage in peer directed, productive activities.
At Kern Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, we understand the complexities of substance use problems among youth and adults. Dealing with these is not easy, but there are people who can and know how to help. We hope that you will find information that is useful in answering some of your questions and that you will feel free to contact us if you need additional help.
