Behavioral Health Department

A New Start for Moms Program

Program Description


A special program in Ventura County where women can get help for alcohol and other drug-related problems. Our center is special because we offer services not only to women of all ages, but especially to those who are pregnant or have young children.  Dealing with one's own alcohol or drug problems is especially difficult when there are children to consider.  We give women a second chance at healing and ensuring the health and safety of their children.


Our highly trained multi-disciplinary team of professionals is comprised of a Clinical Administrator, Community Services Coordinators, State Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors, and Marriage and Family Therapists.  Our clinical staffing is physician directed by our team Psychiatrists.


Prevention services are designed to prevent alcohol and other drug-related community problems using environmental and community change approaches.  For more information on prevention efforts, visit ADP Prevention Programs.
