Operation Breakthrough closed their doors on June 30, 2009, no longer providing services in Big Bear. However, drug and alcohol treatment and prevention services, including DUI Programs, Court-ordered, and Outpatient programs, as well as the Breakthrough Task Force are now provided by Panorama Ranch Big Bear, owned and operated by Morongo Basin Mental Health Services. Their office is located at Summit Plaza, 41945 Big Bear Blvd., Suite 208 in Big Bear Lake. Community members were very supportive of the efforts of Operation Breakthrough and the Board of Directors and staff encourages the community and businesses of Big Bear to support the new agency’s endeavors in providing services to valley residents.
