Description

Established nationally in 1973, and in the Tampa Bay Area in 2001, WestCare, recognizes addiction to alcohol and drugs as a chronic disease. Like many diseases, a simple cure does not exist. Treatment at WestCare begins with an individualized plan that is tailored to address all aspects of addiction and co-occurring disorders. We value each client as an individual with the potential for lifelong recovery. Our substance abuse and mental health clinicians have extensive experience in working with a variety of populations (e.g., youth, veterans, homeless, etc.). Today, WestCare serves thousands of individuals in 17 U.S. states and 3 U.S. territories.
