Support Groups  From time to time, we all need the support of others to help us through difficult times. Sometimes being able to get another person's perspective or just being heard is all it takes.

Centers of Excellence  Through the work of the Governor’s Opioid Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force, BHDDH has identified COEs for the treatment of opioid use disorders as those providers that will be certified by meeting these certification standards and that will then be reimbursed by the Medicaid Program. A COE is a specialty center that utilizes evidence-based practices and is responsible for providing treatment to and coordinating the care of individuals with moderate to severe opioid use disorder.
