Welcome to the Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Prevention Provider Site

I would like to welcome you to the Substance Use Treatment and Prevention section of the BHCS Provider website. The BHCS staff team for substance use treatment and prevention developed this new section, with help from providers, to provide useful information in a very rapidly changing era of reforms to our health care and criminal justice systems. Regulatory and policy changes are happening quickly at federal, state and county levels, most notably the 1115 Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System Waiver. We will post current information useful to you in preparing and repositioning your organization for the new requirements of these reforms, and to better serve the residents of Alameda County.

This effort is part of a broader BHCS strategy to heighten the focus on our substance use treatment and prevention services. We recognize the devastating impact of addictions on those who are addicted; their friends and families; the healthcare, social services and criminal justice systems; and the larger society in which we all live. We are dedicating increased resources to make certain our substance use treatment and prevention delivery systems grow their capacity to keep pace with rapidly changing requirements and with the increasing demands for services.

I would like to introduce to you our substance use treatment and prevention team who you can contact, listed alphabetically:

Carol Burton, LMSW; Criminal Justice-Related SUD Consultant, Perinatal Program Specialist –
Marlisa Davis, MPA; Program Specialist –
Nathan Hobbs, LCSW, Children’s System of Care –

Best regards,
Tom Trabin, Ph.D., MSM
