Evolving from its origins as a single therapeutic community for men addressing drug addiction called the Fitzsimmons House, WestCare, today, provides a myriad of programs that benefit all people. From outpatient and residential programs treating substance use and mental health disorders, to shelters providing services to those with HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, and homelessness, to programs within the criminal justice system, to programs interfacing with and/or incorporating primary care services, WestCare’s nearly five decades of growth has been predicated on meeting the need or filling the gap where real people need real help.
Whether you are seeking information about a specific issue, services of a specific kind, programs in a particular location, or help for a specific person, the doors of WestCare are open and we are there to welcome you.

No insurance - no problem! We have a Nevada State Welfare Outreach Enroller onsite and can get uninsured persons connected with benefits the same day services are requested. We will not turn anybody away due to an inability to pay.
