New benefits as of July 2020
Expansion of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Services
PHC’s 14 counties have long supported SUD treatment services through the Drug Medi-Cal program. Now, these services are greatly expanded in seven of our counties through our new Wellness and Recovery Program.
The Wellness and Recovery Program launched in Humboldt, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, and Solano counties on July 1, 2020.*
In these seven Wellness and Recovery counties, services are available to all Medi-Cal recipients who meet the medical necessity criteria as determined by the American Society of Addiction Management (ASAM) scale.
The range of services include:
- Outpatient treatment (licensed professional or certified counselor, up to nine hours per week for adults)
- Intensive outpatient treatment for individuals with greater treatment needs (licensed professional or certified counselor, structured programming, nine-19 hours per week for adults
- Detoxification services (withdrawal management)
- Residential treatment
- Medically assisted treatment (methadone, buprenorphine, disulfiram, naloxone)
