The Alcohol and Other Drugs Services (AOD) System of Care is a planned, comprehensive approach for providing alcohol and other drug treatment and prevention services in Contra Costa County. The continuum of care benefits consumers and providers by combining administrative and clinical services in an integrated, coordinated system.
