New Treatment Finder Resource Coming Feb. 1
Beginning on Feb. 1, 2020, OhioMHAS will refer people seeking mental health or substance use disorder treatment to a new treatment finder tool, FindTreatment.gov. FindTreatment.gov is an online treatment finder database created by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which collected information on thousands of state-licensed providers who specialize in treating substance use disorders, addiction, and mental illness. SAMHSA has also created a national 24/7 helpline to assist with treatment referrals and information. Call 1.800.662.HELP (4357) to speak to someone. Visitors to the website can learn about what to expect when they call a treatment provider and read an explanation of treatment options. The database includes Medication-Assisted Treatment options and some housing providers. The information included in the database is collected and maintained by SAMHSA. To learn more about how the data is collected, or to request an update click HERE. FindTreatment.gov will replace our current links to the Emerald Jenny Foundation’s online treatment finder for SUD providers, and Find Mental Health Providers tool on the mha.ohio.gov webpage for mental health providers. If you have questions about this change, please contact the OhioMHAS Creative Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
