Our Sobering Services Center (SSC) operates 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and provides a safe, clean, drug and alcohol-free environment where the effects of alcohol, marijuana, and other intoxicants are allowed to subside, and clients can regain minimal levels of functionality in lieu of incarceration. In addition to serving individuals referred by SDPD for sobering services at the site, SSC provides Prosecution and Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion Services (PLEADS) to individuals appropriately referred, which allows a safe, clean, drug and alcohol-free environment to individuals who are under the influence of controlled substances who don’t require a higher level of care for management of their episode, so they are able to be safely engaged, referred, and transported to an appropriate level of treatment. All SSC clients come to the Inebriate Sobering Services and PLEADS programs through referrals by countywide health, safety, and law enforcement agencies.
