SNAHC has developed a model program that combines mental health and substance abuse counseling with traditional healing practices for Native American families. Our program is based on traditional Native American values and is sensitive to the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual needs of our members. Our Behavioral Health department has received funding to provide outpatient alcohol/substance abuse counseling and mental health services by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), Indian Health Services (IHS), and the State of California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP). Treatment and prevention efforts are geared toward restoring balance and well-being for the individual.

Services provided include:

  • Individual, Child, Adolescent and Family Counseling
  • Psychiatry
  • White Bison 12-Step Recovery Group

While many programs are focused on our Native American population, services are available to all who seek treatment; there are no tribal or ethnic requirements to receive care at SNAHC.

Integrated Behavioral Health
Are you overwhelmed? Stressed? Confused? SNAHC Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) Provider can help. You can request an IBH consultation while you are here at SNAHC for your medical appointment. Consultations are confidential and last from 5-20 minutes. Interested in speaking with the IBH Provider? Talk to your Primary Care provider or call 916-341-0575 to get more information.

Please Note:
In order to assure that patients receive comprehensive behavioral health care, we request that patients interested in services be scheduled with a counselor for a Behavioral Health Orientation Visit. SNAHC believes that the orientation will best prepare both patient and provider for an ideal relationship and the opportunity to make the most of all of the services that we offer.

To request psychiatric services, patients will need to consult with their SNAHC Primary Care Provider. If you currently do not receive medical services with SNAHC, we invite you to speak with Member Services to consider transferring your care to SNAHC.

To make an appointment with Member Services, call our Appointment Line at 916-341-0575. Our Care Coordinators will be happy to schedule an appointment to initiate or update your registration data, as well as help you explore your available payment or coverage alternatives.  After registration is complete, you will receive an appointment for an introduction into the Behavioral Health Department services.
