California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison celebrated Heroes Week from June 29-July 3 to honor staff for going above and beyond providing safety, medical treatment, and hope to our communities during these trying times.

As part of the celebration of our heroes, a daily drawing was held for $25 dollar gift certificates to local businesses. Each day, 10 heroes were also winners.

Warden Sherman said, “It is in times of trials, where we see the true character of people. Our SATF heroes continue to display their hard work and dedication to the department. SATF could not accomplish all it does without each and every one.”
