What We Do
When people of any age struggle with addiction, mental health issues, trauma or an unstable home life, they need competent and compassionate care. Our licensed, certified and professional staff brings an exceptional level of expertise in the science and psychology of behavioral health, which is matched by warm, supportive approaches. We love what we do, and it shows at every step.
Meeting Vital Needs
Door to Hope opens the door for people of any age in Monterey County to get the important behavioral health services they need. We also provide the warm, caring support - and hope - they deserve.
More than 40 years ago, we began with one modest recovery program for women in need who were struggling with alcohol and drug problems. Today, we offer ten programs that serve the diverse needs of:
- Infants and young children at risk for trauma and exposure to alcohol and drugs in the womb.
- Adolescents suffering from mental health issues and substance abuse disorders.
- Families struggling with a variety of issues who need mentoring, parenting education, therapy and other support services.
- Single women, pregnant women and mothers with small children who are in recovery from addiction.
- Men and women in outpatient treatment for substance abuse.
