As a part of Utah’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative, the Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DHS/DSAMH) is responsible for providing certification of behavioral health treatment programs in the state of Utah. The standards are mandatory for treatment providers who serve individuals that are incarcerated, or required to participate in treatment by a court, or the Board of Pardons and Parole.
Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health & Local Authorities
DSAMH’s vision is to contribute to the development of healthy individuals, families and communities. Substance use disorders and mental illnesses are chronic diseases. However, prevention works, treatment is effective, and
people recover. Mental health and substance use disorder treatment services are available in every county.
