Sunrise Community Counseling Center (SCCC) is a community-based non-profit substance abuse and mental health counseling center located in heart of the Westlake/Pico-Union community. SCCC has been serving Los Angeles since 1976.


SCCC takes pride in the ability to provide substance use/abuse and mental health prevention and treatment services to the community through a number of programs. As one of the only agencies in Westlake that provides substance abuse prevention and mental health treatment services in Spanish, we are able to serve the large Latino community in the area. SCCC is staffed with trained and experienced case managers, therapists, social workers, researchers, and administrative personnel that are bilingual, culturally sensitive, and who are fully aware of the dynamics that culture and history play on the experience, satisfaction, and clinical outcomes of clients.


It is our belief at Sunrise Community Counseling Center that immigrants, homeless, low income individuals, all families, youth, adults, and the community at large can experience an enhanced quality of life. Our goal is to facilitate the healing process through mental health services, substance use prevention and treatment, and education. We encourage our clients to continue participating in, and contributing to, the world around them.


To serve the Westlake/Pico-Union community and the surrounding Los Angeles County area with bilingual substance abuse prevention and treatment, mental health counseling services, psycho-social services, and education, to heal and enrich the community’s overall well being.
