Battling Substance Abuse Since 1970

CRASH, Inc. recently celebrated 50 years as a community-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping substance abusers regain their self-esteem and become clean, sober, productive, self-sufficient members of their communities. Over the years, CRASH has accumulated a broad depth of experience in providing alcohol and other drug (AOD) programs and services. During this time, CRASH has contracted with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the State of California justice system, the County of San Diego, the Parolee Partnership Program (P3), Mental Health Systems Re-entry Treatment Program and the Substance Abuse Services Coordination Agency (SASCA), to operate a number of residential and non-residential AOD treatment, recovery, prevention, education and outreach programs.

  • residential detoxification services
  • non-residential treatment and recovery services for adults and adolescents

Our Experience Speaks for Itself!

Our experience also includes implementing both residential and non-residential AOD programs and services through contracts with the County of San Diego Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS) and state and local criminal justice organizations. All CRASH, Inc. current programs are located in the central area of San Diego City and are key components of the County’s array of AOD services.

We consistently deliver high-quality cost-effective Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) services including working with people with co-occurring disorders, those who are homeless, and who have low or no income.

Currently, we contract with the County of San Diego to offer short-term (90-120 days) residential services through the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) and we contract with U.S. Pretrial Services through the Southern District of California to provide short-term and long-term (90-180 days) residential services.
