Substance Use Services

The Marin County Department of Health and Human Services, Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) offers a wide range of education, prevention, treatment and counseling services to Marin County residents.

Substance Use Services (SUS) serves as an administrative office that contracts the majority of its federal, state and local funds to community-based, non-profit organizations. Within these agencies, multiple programs are delivered including:

  • Residential treatment for men, women and women with children;
  • Outpatient treatment for adolescents and adults;
  • Narcotic replacement therapy services;
  • Primary and secondary prevention services for adolescents and adults;
  • HIV and Hepatitis C testing and early intervention services;
  • Residential and outpatient services for parolees;
  • First- and Multiple Offender Drinking Driver programs; and
  • Drug Diversion program for adults.

The Division is responsible for ensuring Contractor's compliance in accordance with applicable Federal, State and local laws, statutes, rules, regulations, guidelines and ordinances. Both informal and formal monitoring of contract objectives and use of funds are performed as well as technical assistance in program planning and implementation. County contracted providers can access all contractor materials at this website: https://www.marinhhs.org/substance-use-services-contractor-resources.

Eligibility

Eligibility requirements differ among the various contracted treatment providers. In all treatment agencies, a sliding scale fee, approved by the County Substance Use Services Administrator, is applied.

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.
