Familias Unidas Outpatient Clinic is a licensed, CARF- accredited behavioral health clinic. Familias provides clinical treatment for substance use disorder(s) (SUDs) and co-occurring SUD(s) and mental illness(es) (CODs). Each individual or family we serve receives a comprehensive assessment and CasaCare treatment plan. Our assessments identify each patient’s health needs and explore their strengths and goals. Each patient consults with a multidisciplinary team to develop their CasaCare plan. 

Our service model prioritizes access and engagement to promote patient voice and choice. CasaCare teams include bilingual clinicians, caseworkers, medical staff, and other specialists. Our care plans weave together treatment, services, and other resources specific to each patient’s needs. Our goal is to help patients manage their health and wellness so they can thrive.

More About SOAP

The Enhanced Structured Outpatient Addictions Program (SOAP) is a day treatment program designed to address the needs of individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. SOAP is for clients in early recovery who are at high risk for relapse and/or overdose and require a more intensive level of care than outpatient services or a step-down from inpatient services.
