About WestCare

Mission Statement

Mission WestCare empowers everyone with whom we come into contact to engage in a process of healing, growth and change benefiting themselves, their families, coworkers and communities. Vision WestCare devotes our best collective and individual efforts toward "uplifting the human spirit" by consistently improving, expanding and strengthening the quality, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of everything we do in building for the future.


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.
