Below is a snapshot of some of the new and continuing
developments for BHRS in the past year. We would like to
recognize all of the people — clients, family members, staff,
partners and community members — whose passion, commitment and
hard work every day, transformed these ideas into action.
Serenity House Opens Its Doors
Serenity House, San Mateo County’s new
short-term adult crisis residential center, opened on October 29
after much anticipation. Overseen by BHRS and operated by
HealthRight360, Serenity House offers 24/7 treatment, support and
respite to adults experiencing a psychiatric crisis but not
requiring hospitalization. Learn more.
Advanced Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders
Medication assisted treatment combines medication, therapy and
support to successfully treat substance use disorders. The
Medication Assisted Treatment Team (IMAT) has helped
treat alcohol disorders since July 2015, and recently began
treating opioid use disorders in FY 17-18.
