Supes Boost ADMHS Contract By $950,000


The supervisors allocated an extra $950,000 to the contract between the county’s Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) and Aurora Vista del Mar, bringing the current fiscal year’s contract to $2.3 million. Aurora Vista del Mar, in Ventura, provides acute inpatient psychiatric care to Santa Barbara County residents when the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility’s 16 beds are full. The additional monies come from state and county coffers but could be insufficient; ADMHS will provide a financial update in May.
