  • Good work people.

  • Thank you RRHC! At least one of the healthcare entities in SoHum is finally providing these services! In a community so highly challenged by drug addiction, not just opiates but also methamphetamine are making life here miserable for many.

    Congratulations RRHC! It is certainly appropriate and timely.

    As a recovering addict/alcoholic, clean and sober 7 years, I applaud the action to create this program, and hope the residents of SoHum will guide SHCHD to follow the example being set here. Meanwhile, in addition to STRC, we have an excellent inpatient rehab at St Helena Hospital, Duffy’s Napa, and many other fine facilities to help.

    Get the treatment that works for you! Clean and sober takes a lifetime: start now.

    Getting people off drugs, including marihuana, is a noble cause.

    Hiding your issues by being stoned is no way to live, and I hope every drug user enrolls in this.

    Living a normal, drug free life begins when you just say no, and get help.

    Today could be the first day of your new life.

    Get help, no more excuses.

  • Services offered as a result of a “grant funded by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration.” Thank you, US government?

  • Maybe I misunderstood. Are they offering stand alone mental health counseling (apart from addiction issues)? I know a homeless man in the area who I would like to offer mental health counseling (and prob meds) to. Any clarification? (If not, I will call RRHC at 923-CRUD 😉 to ask them).

  • Thank you for calling Redwoods Rural Health Center if you want to utilize the new program or have any questions. 707-923-2783 Because this is a new program, our staff would love to educate the public and patients about the parameters of the grant. Redwoods Rural Health Center’s mission is to provide responsive, preventive, high quality primary health care services, through a variety of healing disciplines, to all people without regard to social or economic status. Since every service at RRHC is regulated under HIPPA and we respect our patient confidentiality, we thank you for calling instead of asking any questions about yourself or others on the internet. Thank you!
