Referrals Database: Many of the referrals we make can be verified in the SAMSHA U.S. government’s database. We make every effort to supply as much information and assistance as possible to anyone who contacts us for help.
SAMHSA was established in 1992 and directed by Congress to target effectively substance abuse and mental health services to the people most in need and to translate research in these areas more effectively and more rapidly into the general health care system. Over the years SAMHSA has demonstrated that: prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover from mental and substance use disorders. Behavioral health services improve health status and reduce health care and other costs to society. Continued improvement in the delivery and financing of prevention, treatment and recovery support services provides a cost effective opportunity to advance and protect the Nation's health. The National Alcohol and Drug Abuse Call Center is operated by Healthcare Options.
