Available Adult Services

  • Outreach, Screening, Assessment and Referral (OSAR)
    This program serves as an essential link between prevention, intervention and treatment services and plays an integral role in assuring that people in need of services receive access to the appropriate level and type of substance abuse services through effective coordination with service providers.
    OSAR Resource Directory
  • State Incentive Grant Planning Coalition
    This coalition is charged with the development and implementation of a comprehensive resource plan for substance abuse prevention in a 15-county area.
  • HIV Street Outreach
    HIV Outreach is a program which provides prevention and intervention services for people whose behavior places them at an increased risk for contracting the HIV virus. Outreach workers take risk-reduction education and prevention strategies directly into areas having significant numbers of persons at-risk. HIV testing is done by the outreach workers at Lubbock County Jail, and other high risk people are referred to the City Health Department for testing.
  • Opioid Pharmacotherapy (Methadone Clinic)
    The Methadone Clinic is a service for people who are addicted to opiates. The service assists them in developing the life skills necessary to stabilize their lives and families.  Counseling and education are also provided to help people learn skills to prevent relapse.
  • Co-Occurring State Incentive Grant Systems Project
    This project provides funding through a voucher arrangement that makes additional community supports available to individuals with a co-occurring psychiatric and substance use diagnosis. Examples of services that can be purchased include housing assistance, childcare, transportation, clothing, educational and vocational assistance, medical care and temporary food assistance.
  • Therapeutic Treatment Community (Billy Meeks Center)
    The Transitional Treatment Center (TTC) is the aftercare component of the treatment program for people released from In-Prison Therapeutic Community (IPTC) or Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility (SAFP) programs. Through a contract with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), the TTC provides temporary housing, chemical dependency treatment and other supports for transition back into the community.

All services are based on the individual's needs and choices, and are structured to help the person manage their illness, encouraging independent and productive lives.

In what areas are these services available?
Outreach, screening and referral services are available in a 42-county area (see coverage-area map).  Other Substance Abuse services are available within a smaller coverage area within the greater 42-county area.  Services are available without discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or disability.

How are these services paid for? 
StarCare Specialty Health System accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and most forms of private health insurance.  For persons who are not eligible for health coverage, fees are assessed on the basis of proof of the individual's (or in some cases the family's) complete income, with no one denied services due to an inability to pay.
