Kaiser Permanente is headquartered in Oakland and is one of the nation's most extensive non-profit health plans and it serves over 12 million Americans. The largest membership base the insurance provider has is located in California. The organization is comprised of three parts, the Kaiser Foundation Health Plans, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, and the Permanente Medical Groups. California Kaiser plans are provided in all of California's 19 pricing regions. Kaiser Permanente provides members with substance use treatment services in California. For example, in Sacramento, the program offers outpatient support and education-focused treatment approaches. Health plan members and their families can access weekly group and educational sessions.

Individual and family counseling are also available as well as self-help meetings. The services are available to Kaiser Permanente members, and no referral is necessary. Since 2014 in the state of California, there have been dramatic declines in the number of uninsured people. Approximately 90% of California residents have health insurance. Medi-Cal is the state Medicaid program and is responsible for most of the health insurance coverage in the state. The insurance marketplace in the state also continues to grow, with numerous California residents enrolling in different insurance plans. However, most of the uninsured Californians lived in low-income households. For example, in 2016, around 2.8 million California residents lacked health insurance.
