A pilot program through agreement with Shasta County Health and Human Services and the Empire Recovery Center, opened March 20, 2019. The center accepts referrals only from law enforcement officials and emergency department personnel. Clients are individuals who are primarily under the influence of alcohol. The Sobering Center serves as an alternative to arrest, offering inebriates a safe place to “sleep it off.” Staff will encourage clients to consider treatment opportunities. The pilot program seeks to develop data and community-specific information as well as relieving our police and medical resources.
