Welcome To Behavioral Health Services
Transforming lives by offering hope and opportunities for recovery, wellness, and independence
Behavioral Health Services is a not-for-profit community-based healthcare organization providing medical services, substance abuse, mental health, drug-free transitional living, housing for women with HIV, and prevention services for the local community. BHS – Family Health Center our first community health clinic opened in April 2016.
BHS began providing outpatient substance abuse treatment services to adolescents and young adults in the Centinela Valley in 1973. Realizing the enormity of need throughout Los Angeles County, we expanded reach and now operate from 13 locations covering the South Bay, East Los Angeles, the San Gabriel Valley, and the metropolitan areas of Los Angeles County. We operate two Chemical Dependency Recovery Centers, four residential sites eight outpatient clinics, two of which provide mental health services in addition to substance use services. BHS also provides outreach to individuals living on Skid Row and participates in several homeless projects.
We strongly believe in partnering not only with our clients and their families, but also with other service organizations throughout the community in order to ensure that clients and their families have the greatest opportunity for long-term recover from substance use.
