Our Services

NAHC’s behavioral health services help clients build lasting self-awareness and management skills to improve balance, control, and overall health. Our staff has guided many people through intensely stressful times, resolution of past trauma, and ongoing addictions. Our trained therapists use a core group of best practices, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and EMDR, along with other Western therapeutic approaches, to meet a wide range of needs. We strive to stay culturally-rooted by working regularly in community support and outreach events and receiving regular consultation and training from traditional Native American practitioners and the Indian Health Service.

We offer:

  • Individual counseling for adults and youth ages 10 and over
  • Substance abuse treatment and recovery support services
  • Same-day help and consultation in the Medical department

Health Insurance

We are here to help you determine how your behavioral health care needs can be met. Non-specialty Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans and Medicare insurances are accepted. Many people without insurance are eligible for programs that pay for their care. Otherwise, a sliding fee scale may be available. NAHC’s Member Services Department will assist you with eligibility questions: 510-434-5421.
