Off Campus & Online Resources

Santa Barbara Community Resources

A list of community mental health providers covered by the University insurance plan is available at ADP. Our counselors can make referrals to community providers after meeting with students who may benefit from more extensive care or who may prefer to be seen outside of the university setting. Many community health providers offer discounted rates to students enrolled in the University Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). For students not enrolled in the SHIP Program, contact with the desired provider should be made by the student to determine particular insurance coverage.

UCSB Alcohol and Drug Program also maintains information about drug and alcohol programs in other California communities and can assist in finding programs in other locations outside of California if needed. Please call for more detailed information: (805) 893-5013.
