SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER & TREATMENT

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a chronic disorder when a person’s use of substances such as alcohol, nicotine, and/or illicit drugs such as opioids, creates health issues or problems at work, school, and/or home. Federal Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) can diagnose and offer prevention, provide treatment services or referral for addressing SUD to meet the health care needs in the communities in which they serve.

The National Council for Behavioral Health, through the National Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions grant award from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), created and operates the
 Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions,
which is the home of the newest evidence-based resources, tools and support for organizations

working to integrate primary and behavioral health care.

The Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health Services (SUD-MH) Supplemental Funding is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The SUD-MH funding supports Federal Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) with expanding the quality of mental health services, substance use disorder (SUD) prevention, and provide treatment services addressing opioid use disorder (OUD) to meet the health care needs in the communities in which they serve.

To learn more about the SUD-MH program please contact Jennifer Trujillo via email or call 775-887-0417 ext 728.
