Welcome to the King County Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division (MHCADSD)
We provide high quality mental health and substance abuse services to low income individuals in need. Our division provides a wide variety of services including crisis services, mental health treatment, substance abuse treatment, and criminal justice initiatives. We offer services that are respectful, tailored to individual needs, and most of all, effective. The King County Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division is one of four divisions in the King County Department of Community and Human Services.
For your convenience, our website has recently been updated and divided into three separate sections that include the following:
Main Mental Health and Substance Abuse Section
Co-occurring treatment, Mental Illness and Drug Dependency Action Plan, Criminal Justice, Client Rights, HIPAA, and Legislative Priorities
Mental Health Section
Crisis Services, Community Mental Health Treatment, Client Rights, Employment, Housing, Client and Family Resources, Recovery, Advocacy, Mental Health Information, Tobacco Treatment and Frequently Asked Questions
Substance Abuse Section
Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, Community Organizing Program, Tobacco Treatment and Client Rights
Please also note the pages devoted to the activities of the King County Mental Health Advisory Board, the King County Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Administrative Board and the King County Community Organizing Program Citizen Advisory Board. These citizen boards provide a vital link between county government and the community. Meeting agendas and meeting minutes are available as well as applications and application information. Anyone interested in serving on any of these boards is encouraged to explore those pages and consider applying and joining their efforts to improve and strengthen publicly funded mental health and substance abuse services to the community.
Thank you for your interest in the Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division. Feel free to provide feedback about our new Web site at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
