DHCS Technical Assistance Project

Supporting SUD Providers with Training & Capacity-Building Resources

The DHCS Technical Assistance Grant is a vital initiative aimed at addressing the increasing need for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment services across California. As the landscape of SUD treatment continues to evolve, small and mid-sized providers are particularly in need of training and capacity-building resources.

This grant focuses on supporting these providers through various initiatives being discussed at the State and local County levels. Key areas of focus include the integration of Harm Reduction into all SUD treatment services, reaching the 95% of individuals who require SUD treatment, and establishing lower barrier care across the SUD system.

Additionally, the grant emphasizes practice, solidification, and expansion in a community-affirming way, ensuring that providers are equipped to deliver effective and compassionate care.

What we can help with:

Our team is dedicated to offering a comprehensive range of training and technical assistance to SUD providers. We can assist with:

  • Understanding new initiatives and their implications.
  • Engaging in complex processes to draft, modify, and implement new policies and procedures.
  • Helping providers learn about Medicaid and other SUD services.
  • Assisting providers in expanding services and locations.
  • Supporting providers in sizing up their programs to meet growing demands.
  • Offering basic information or in-depth 101 guidance to enhance service delivery and business practices.

By doing so, we aim to improve access to SUD healthcare and the overall health and wellness of SUD healthcare consumers in California.
