Substance use disorder model of care
DHS partnered with a variety of stakeholders to develop a new model of care for Minnesotans with substance use disorder. This partnership responded to 2012 legislation that directed DHS to develop “a community-based integrated model of care to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the service continuum for individuals with substance use disorder.”
