This page is for professionals who provide mental health services. If you are looking for information on mental health services in your community, call 211.

Important certification information

Outpatient mental health clinics with a Wis. Admin. Code ch. DHS 35 certification providing substance use disorder services are required to be certified under Wis. Admin. Code ch. DHS 75 as a substance use service provider [Wis. Stat. § 51.45 (8)(c)].

Under Wis. Admin. Code ch. DHS 75, mental health treatment programs have two options for substance use services certification. Agencies are eligible to become certified under DHS 75.49 (outpatient substance use treatment service) in combination with Wis. Admin Code ch. DHS 35 or under Wis. Admin. Code § DHS 75.50 (outpatient integrated behavioral health treatment service). A Wis. Admin. Code § DHS 75.50 certification allows providers to operate under one certification to provide mental health, substance use, or co-occurring services, and have one set of policies and procedures. 

Submit your questions or concerns about obtaining a DHS 75 certification through this online form.
