HealthRIGHT 360 is a family of integrated health programs that provides compassionate care and treatment to over 38,000 individuals a year through more than 70 distinct and culturally competent programs in 13 California counties. The agency today is the product of a series of strategic mergers; as each organization joined our family of programs, it brought with it a legacy of service and connection to vulnerable and marginalized members of our communities across California. HealthRIGHT 360 gives hope, builds health, and changes lives for people in need. We do this by providing care that includes primary medical, mental health, substance use disorder treatment and re-entry services.
