The Sobering Center is for persons who meet the legal definition of intoxication. Individuals may only be referred and transported to the facility by law enforcement, emergency medical services, or hospitals. It is not a place where friends or family members can bring someone to sober up. However, if you suspect someone is publicly intoxicated and needs assistance, you can call 911 and request they be taken to the Sobering Center.

Community Referral Partnership Program

Referral partnerships are being formed so that community based treatment centers, sober homes, courtrooms, crisis outreach teams, etc. can call us for assistance with a client they believe needs safe sobering, but does not need police or EMS involvement.
