- Co-Occurring Disorders (CODs) in Addiction
A 3 Part Workshop Series for Alameda SUD Providers presented by Rob Lee MD of Alameda BHCS
- Please consider attending the upcoming conference on Engaging Fathers who are using substances. This conference was highly recommended at the State DHCS SUD conference. It is only $50 for two days. The conference organizers are encouraging people to apply for scholarships if needed. The conference will be focused on fathers with a history of substance use.
- Dear SUD-related county staff and CBO providers,
The landmark Drug Medi-Cal Waiver was just approved by the federal Centers for Medicare and MediCaid Services. The formulation of the waiver design was an extensive effort that involved federal, state and county government agencies, providers and many stakeholder groups. Please see the attached announcement that just came from the state DHCS. The Bay Area counties are designated as the first to develop their opt-in implementation plans. Alameda County BHCS will now be intensifying our ongoing work with you to prepare our own Implementation Plan, and apply to DHCS and CMS for its review and approval.
