The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department offers Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT) to patients 16 years of age and older with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) across five Health Care Centers (HCCs) with locations in Carpinteria, Lompoc, Santa Maria, and two sites in Santa Barbara. Services are offered on a sliding fee scale, and the health care centers accept Medi-Cal/CenCal.

Services Offered
Primary Care Providers (PCP) at the 5 health care centers provide MAT treatment utilizing a Team-Based Care approach. The PCP works alongside a Registered Nurse, Medical Assistant, and Administrative Assistant, with the goal to ensure the individual has the support to maintain frequent, regular follow up with the PCP. In addition, the PCP partners with an on-site Behavior Health Specialist for cognitive behavioral therapy; a Registered Dietitian to provide nutritional guidance, and a Pharmacist to facilitate receipt of the prescribed medication. The HCCs provide comprehensive services, and have ongoing regular long-term monitoring through regular checkups, providing early detection of relapse, reduced time to retreatment and improved long term outcomes.

Payments Accepted: CenCal assigned to SMHCC, Medicare, and self-pay

Services are available in Spanish.
