Substance Use Services for Women

The Department of Health Services is committed to providing prevention information and substance abuse services which are accessible, effective, and sensitive to the needs of women. Staff understands women often face barriers to accessing treatment, such as transportation, child care, lack of insurance coverage, and lack of support systems. Additionally, staff recognizes women continue to face significant stigma and a fear of consequences associated with seeking services.

The Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services is committed to working with its partners around the state to reduce these barriers and increase access to effective prevention and treatment services to assist women in reaching their recovery goals.
