What's new?

  • San Francisco is undergoing an unprecedented expansion of behavioral health services for people with mental health and substance use addictions.
  • San Francisco Public Health aims to offer high quality, timely, easily accessible, coordinated, and recovery-oriented care delivered in the least restrictive setting, and, to the extent possible, within the City and County of San Francisco
  • As part of this overall expansion, we are increasing our overnight residential treatment and care services for both long- and short-term stays. 
  • We are in the process of increasing residential capacity by approximately 400 overnight treatment spaces, or beds, adding to the nearly 2,200 that already exist. This represents a 20% increase in our residential treatment and care capacity.
