Delaware Health and Social Services Accomplishments A Medicaid & DSAMH partnership facilitated revisions in the Delaware Medicaid State Plan to expand federal funding for behavioral health services.
Delaware Health and Social Services Accomplishments Substance Abuse System Re-Design is underway. The American Society of Addiction Management (ASAM) guidelines have been adopted to guide services, level of care determinations, and expected outcomes. Contracts for the re-designed Comprehensive Behavioral Health Outpatient Treatment Programs have been finalized. This model will provide a better coordination of care throughout an individual’s journey to recovery. Contracts for the re-designed Withdrawal Management Programs are being finalized.
Delaware Health and Social Services Residential SUD Services Currently DSAMH contracts for 78 beds on the Governor Bacon Campus (Gateway). The program must be relocated as the campus will be used for other purposes. This has allowed for us to re-think and re- design our residential treatment programs.
Delaware Health and Social Services Residential SUD Services The re-design and additional funding in the FY ‘16 GRB will result in: 47 beds (for men) will be moved to a renovated facility on the Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill campus bed treatment facilities across the state. These programs will serve a total of 63 males and 32 women. Increase of 17 beds.
Delaware Health and Social Services Sober Living Residential Beds Formerly known as half-way houses. These programs offer recovery supports in addition to housing. Currently we have 60 beds and have requested funding for 60 more in FY ‘16. We continue to explore another intermediate treatment level (Recovery Residence Level 3) of treatment homes to add to the treatment continuum.
Delaware Health and Social Services Young Adult Residential Opiate Treatment Program Currently one program in operation providing 15 beds. Expansion in FY ‘15 to 16 beds. With the funding proposed in the GRB, we would add a second program for 16 beds.
