TAC Awarded Contract with DC to Facilitate Department of Behavioral Health Merger
TAC was recently awarded a contract with the District of Columbia to facilitate the merger of the Department of Mental Health and the Addiction Prevention Recovery Administration into a combined Department of Behavioral Health. The District's plan is similar to efforts in other jurisdictions where government agencies are working toward integrating addictions and mental health treatment, increasing access to services, readying for Medicaid expansion and parity, and streamlining administrative functions. Thirty-nine states now combine mental health and addictions services into a single agency or within the same umbrella organization.
