The way we provide services changed on April 1, 2016. By becoming King County's Behavioral Health Organization, we are creating an efficient, integrated approach to providing behavioral health care.
Read about the changes for clients and service providers below:
If you're currently receiving services, continue seeing your provider until you complete treatment.
New clients can call our client services line at 1 (800) 790-8049 or one of our contracted providers to enroll in services.
We are offering two new ways to communicate with the County about SUD RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT services:
- SUD Residential Phone Line: 855-682-0781. The SUD provider community is encouraged to use this number for questions related to King County’s SUD residential services. Knowledgeable, experienced staff are available to provide information and guidance Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.
- SUD Residential Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Providers may forward SUD residential referral packets (via secure email) to this email address as well as any questions or concerns. Once again, knowledgeable County staff will be available Monday through Friday to answer your questions and process referrals.
