BHRS continually assesses the mental health and substance use service needs of the community it serves. Programs and services are developed to support clients in meeting their identified treatment goals. Every effort is made to provide services in a culturally sensitive manner and in the client's preferred language.

Individuals seeking services from BHRS often present with complex problems that include mental health, substance use and physical health needs. To provide necessary comprehensive care, BHRS treatment staff strive to recognize, assess and address the complexities of the lives of the people served.

BHRS directly operates a wide array of treatment programs, but also contracts with many community partners to offer a complete continuum of care. It is this partnership that provides a system of care to best meet the diverse needs of clients within their home communities.

Recovery is real. We see it everyday. We have the utmost respect for the work and strength clients in recovery demonstrate.

Effective immediately, Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
