The revised Wis. Admin Code ch. DHS 75 is the product of years of partner and provider engagement and advocacy to ensure that DHS administrative rules reflect evidence-based practices and support advancement in patient care. This revised Wis. Admin. Code ch. DHS 75 puts the health and well-being of people receiving services for substance use first while easing provider requirements to support greater access to substance use services throughout the state.

DHS staff have been preparing providers for the revised regulations since October 2021. Staff continue to support providers to ensure continuity of services.
