Information on Service Adjustments During the COVID-19 Emergency
HHS is the County’s largest department with more than 700 employees who work at many sites throughout Marin. Many HHS offices have reopened with limited staffing to the public. Staff will continue to provide services remotely when possible for safety reasons, and residents in need of HHS services should consider conducting conversations over the phone or email when possible. Please call ahead if you have an appointment or require in-person assistance.
Helen Vine Recovery Center (Buckelew Programs)
The Helen Vine Recovery Center is a non-medical detoxification program where adults under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol can safely withdraw from the ill effects of intoxication. The Center is staffed by trained personnel specializing in alcohol and drug detoxification, relapse prevention, assessment and referral, and teaching skills of daily living. Individuals in need of medication support will be referred for a medical evaluation if needed. Individuals may be referred by Self, Family, Law Enforcement, Emergency Room and Crisis Stabilization Unit. The typical length of stay is 3-5 days.
Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS). As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
