The Division of Care and Treatment Services (DCTS) manages and supports seven care and treatment facilities, community mental health and substance use services, community forensic treatment services, and the protection of client rights for individuals receiving services for developmental disability, mental health, and substance use.
DCTS includes all of the service areas of the former Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (DMHSAS). The DMHSAS name was retired in August 2016 because new service areas were assigned to DMHSAS as part of a reorganization of the Department of Health Services.
