IMPROVING ACCESS TO SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT
We will make it easier for people in our clinics and communities to receive substance abuse treatment.
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, people on Medi-Cal and those who are uninsured can now access a variety of substance use treatment services in their neighborhoods.
The Health Agency will assist those who are ready for treatment by providing a support team to guide them through the process.
The new substance use treatment and prevention program will offer a more comprehensive set of services than previously available and help reduce financial barriers to treatment.
The range of benefits available has expanded beyond substance use treatment and therapy sessions. Benefits will also include coverage of residential support services and the cost of transportation to appointments.
The Health Agency is poised to take advantage of this more holistic approach to recovery.
We are committed to helping individuals reduce their dependence, heal from addiction and improve their ability to function successfully in society.
