Do you or someone you know struggle with a substance use disorder? HarborCHC offers compassionate, evidence-based treatment to San Pedro and the surrounding Los Angeles and South Bay areas.

What kinds of substance use disorders does Harbor treat?

The United States is experiencing an epidemic of overdoses related to substance use. Some of the country’s highest death rates are in the Los Angeles area. Fortunately, there are effective and evidence-based treatment options available at Harbor, including:

  • buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) for opioid use
  • treatments to help reduce or stop alcohol use
  • treatments to help stop the use of nicotine (cigarettes, vaping, etc.)
  • treatment for methamphetamine/stimulant use

We even offer evaluation and treatment for adolescent and early adult substance use disorder.

How does HarborCHC approach substance use disorder?

Every patient who comes to our clinic gets screened for substance use disorder. Next, our providers will use evidence-based care to determine the best treatment for you. This is not limited to medication: at Harbor we believe in whole-person care. In addition to treatment for substance use, we also provide primary care, behavioral health services, dental care, women’s health services, and screening for hepatitis C and HIV.

Who will I see for treatment at Harbor?

In addition to his medical degree, Dr. Caleb Lusk has a Master of Public Health, Master of Arts in biology, and a degree in molecular and cellular biology.

How will I pay for treatment?

HarborCHC accepts several insurance plans. If you don’t have insurance, Harbor offers discounts based on household size and income. Harbor can connect patients to treatment at low to no cost: inability to pay is not an obstacle to care.
