About Us

WestCare Foundation and its family of non-profit affiliates began in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1973 as a small organization called Fitzsimmons House which was renamed WestCare in 1988. The initial program served male heroin addicts and soon expanded to include services for men and women abusing alcohol and other drugs. Services and locations have continued to expand ever since and now encompass eighteen states and three U.S. Territories. Much of this growth is the result of partnering with like-minded, community-oriented programs which focus on providing the highest level of service possible.

Uplifting the human spirit is a lofty goal for any organization especially given the challenging times in which we live. Quality health and human services for individuals, families, and communities in need are a priceless resource. With over four decades of experience, WestCare has the necessary expertise to be that resource for those in need of a wide variety of support services.

WestCare's operations are guided by the belief that our first responsibility is to our clients and their families who come to us seeking help. We recognize the value of each person and believe in treating everyone with dignity and ''meeting them where they are at''. We value the human spirit and seek to provide the highest quality services ensuring that they are accessible to those who need them. Programs use appropriate evidence-based or evidence-informed practices with many being accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) or the Joint Commission.
