Substance Use Disorders

Substance Use Disorders Services through Partnership Health Plan:

Starting July 1, 2020, Solano County contracts with Partnership Health Plan of California to offer the Medi-Cal ODS Waiver through the State Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to provide services individuals who meet “medical necessity” for substance use services, meaning:

  • The individual has an included substance use diagnosis which is serious in nature;
  • The individual demonstrates a significant impairment in spheres of functioning (self, home, work/school, peer);
  • The intervention/treatment provided will be focused on the substance use condition, and treatment is expected to correct or improve the condition and the individual would not be better served by physical healthcare provider/s

The Department of Health Care Services Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (ODS) Waiver Implementation Plan for Regional Model encompasses 7 counties: Humboldt, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, & Solano. There will be a new array of providers and expanded services through Partnership's new Wellness and Recovery Program- more information here
