The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has contracted with CIBHS to provide technical assistance and training services to substance use disorder treatment agencies in California. These services are supported by DHCS contract # 14-90198 and are provided at no charge to the recipients.
The purpose of this contract is to provide Technical Assistance (TA) and training to the substance use disorder (SUD) treatment field and to assist DHCS in designing and implementing the statewide system of care. The intended result of these services is the improved quality and performance of SUD treatment, recovery and/or detoxification services in California. Please visit the DHCS Substance Use Disorder Services webpage for more information on DHCS’s role in administering publicly funded SUD services in California.
A broad range of services is offered to prospective and existing residential licensees; prospective and existing certified programs;- programs that provide detoxification services; and Narcotic Treatment Programs. In addition, TA and training services will address special populations such as women, pregnant women, mothers and their children, persons with disabilities, as well as other unserved or underserved populations.
CIBHS has been a leader in providing SUD related training and TA to counties and providers in the area of service integration and preparing for the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System Waiver. The new financing and service delivery models set in motion by the ACA and further developed under the DMC waiver present significant opportunities and challenges for the SUD field.
CIBHS’s goal is to help SUD treatment providers build and improve their administrative and direct service capacity so that they can thrive in this new and evolving environment.

This year’s conference will promote the opportunities and challenges to accomplish this. The conference will take place August 22-24 at the Sheraton in Pomona, California. The call for presenters is now open until April 5, 2017.
