Substance Abuse

The Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH) provides public drug and alcohol treatment services for adults, primarily through contracts with private agencies. Services include: screening and evaluation; outpatient counseling; opioid treatment, including methadone maintenance; continuous treatment team programs for individuals with long-term, disabling alcohol and drug dependence disorders; less intensive case management services offered through the outpatient counseling agencies; detoxification; and residential services. The residential services include short-term/variable length-of-stay treatment (30 days or less), long-term treatment, and halfway houses. In addition to serving women in all of the residential treatment programs, one residential treatment program is targeted specifically to women, including pregnant women and women with infants.

The Division also has specialized case management for adult offenders with alcohol/drug abuse problems who are involved in the Drug Courts. The case management is provided through the Division's Treatment Access Center (TASC).
