Substance Use Disorders (SUD) involve the recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causing clinically significant impairment including health problems, legal issues, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home. This disorder is common, recurrent and often serious, but SUD is treatable, and many people do recover with the right treatment and support.
The Division of Behavioral Health’s (DBH) Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Services Program provides statewide treatment and recovery support services for qualifying individuals and families struggling with the disease of addiction. We support a client-centered approach to treatment and require that our service providers all use Evidence Based Practices when treating for addiction. We offer an array of services including out-patient and residential treatment, as well as recovery support services such as safe and sober housing and transportation. Eligible clients will be assessed to determine what level of care and what array of supports they need to start a life of recovery.
