Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Services

NOTE: The Substance Use Disorder Services Divisions are currently updating these web pages in an effort to enhance and streamline the information available through this website. We are currently under construction and therefore all content and/or links may not be currently available.


The Substance Use Disorder Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Services Division directs statewide prevention and treatment programs that address the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs (AOD). Its core functions include developing and implementing AOD prevention strategies; reviewing and approving county AOD treatment program contracts; and granting applications submitted for state and federal funds for AOD services.

The Substance Use Disorder Compliance Division focuses on compliance with State and Federal statute, regulations, and other governing requirements. The Division oversees the licensing and certification functions, monitoring, and complaints for Driving Under the Influence Programs, Drug Medi-Cal, Narcotic Treatment Programs, and outpatient and residential providers. The Division also ensures compliance with the statewide criminal justice treatment programs and counselor certification.

This page provides links to information for counties, direct providers, and those interested in becoming providers.

Please note:

Effective with the passage of the 2013-2014 Budget Act and associated legislation, the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) no longer exists as of July 1, 2013. All ADP programs and staff, except the Office of Problem Gambling, transferred to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).

Some web content available through links below may reference ADP and/or direct you to content from the former ADP website. DHCS is currently working to update all web content.
