(Spin Digit Editorial):- Tarzana, California Jul 7, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Tarzana Treatment Centers, Inc. (TTC) is pleased to announce it has been awarded a new grant from the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) in the amount of $9,833,338. These funds are part of the state’s Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure and Community of Care Expansion Program (BHCIP). This award, with matching funds from the agency, will specifically be used to build a 14,658-square-foot facility in the Antelope Valley that will expand access to SUD residential treatment.
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2022, TTC is proud to provide whole-person, compassionate healthcare in a wide range of communities. As one of the largest nonprofit integrated healthcare organizations in California, TTC has eighteen facilities and over 1250 employees.
Such a significant grant from the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure and Community of Care Expansion Program will help TTC realize its mission. Indeed, our goal is to provide high-quality, accessible services to underserved populations throughout Los Angeles County.
An Antelope Valley Expansion Comes to Fruition
This funding could not have come at a better time for TTC’s expansion project, which has been in the works for several years. This DHCS grant will allow TTC to continue to meet the needs of vulnerable populations in the Antelope Valley and beyond.
In addition to providing more effective services, TTC will be able to help more people, especially those with the most significant barriers to treatment services access. Hence, such populations include people experiencing homelessness, justice-involved, and those transitioning from the jail or prison system.
TTC dedicates itself to serving vulnerable communities since its inception in 1972. These communities include the following:
- Racial/Ethnic Minorities
- The Uninsured
- Individuals experiencing homelessness
- People living with HIV
- The incarcerated and reentry population
- Individuals suffering from substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring mental illness (COD)
Today, TTC annually serves 19,000+ unduplicated patients. Moreover, this number includes 8,400 in SUD treatment, 7,800 in primary care, 2,500 in mental health services, and 500 in HIV services.
Helping People in the Antelope Valley
Once the construction of the new structure in the Antelope Valley is complete, TTC will broaden its scope. Indeed, TTC will be able to serve an additional 646 patients annually in need of residential substance use disorder treatment. Hence, TTC will be able to provide Recovery Bridge Housing to an additional 129 patients every year.
TTC’s expansion project will significantly impact the communities we serve in the Antelope Valley. Moreover, there is a severe impact in these communities from methamphetamine abuse and the opioid epidemic. Indeed, many people who today experience the greatest barriers to accessing treatment will receive help. They will have viable recovery options that will help them and their community.
TTC was founded on the premise that all people should have access to high-quality healthcare. Thus, TTC is keenly aware of the impact of social determinants on healthcare options. With this grant, the nonprofit organization will be able to offer a full range of services. The focus is to address existing disparities in access to care and improve overall health outcomes in the community.
