What is the CARE Program?

The California Access to Recovery Effort (CARE) is a substance abuse treatment and recovery program funded by the President's Access to Recovery initiative. It empowers youth to make individual choices for recovery that reflect their personal values. Harbor Area Substance Abuse Treatment Center (HASATC) is licensed under the Department of Drug and Alcohol Program Administration license #190586AP and is an approved CARE provider. Services provided under the CARE Program are available at NO COST for eligible youth who meet the program requirements.

Who is eligible for the CARE program?

The CARE program is open to eligible youth 12 through 20 years of age who live in Los Angeles County and want help overcoming problems with drug or alcohol abuse.

Do I need to tell my parents I am in the program?

No this is a strictly confidential program. They will see the results.

Why does CARE work?

The concept of CHOICE is a cornerstone of the program. We can empower you to be involved in your treatment and recovery through a number of programs to aid in your success.

 National Drug Statistics Summary

"In the United States, approximately three-fourths of all deaths among persons aged 10 to 24 years result from only four causes: motor-vehicle crashes, other unintentional injuries, homicide, and suicide. Results from the 1999 national Youth Risk Behavior Survey demonstrate that numerous high school students engage in behaviors that increase their likelihood of death from these four causes...[including alcohol and illicit drug use]" Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), Centers for Disease Control, Risk Youth Behavior Surveillance.
