Improving Access to Behavioral Health Services
Community Solutions supports initiatives to expand access to behavioral health services, particularly substance abuse prevention and treatment.
Over the last several years, The Center for Community Solutions (CCS) and the Mental Health & Addiction Advocacy Coalition (MHAC) have partnered to provide data to policymakers and advocates to improve Ohio’s access to and delivery of mental health and addiction services.This third report in the By the Numbers series, By the Numbers 3: Developing a Common Understanding of the Future of Behavioral Healthcare, Analysis of Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment in Ohio, provides an overview of Ohio’s publicly funded addiction services and a snapshot of their utilization through 2012. The data in this report was supplied by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and the Ohio Hospital Association.
