Behavioral Health

The Behavioral Health Bureau promotes the emotional health and physical well-being of County residents by assessing the problems, needs and resources of the County and promoting behavioral health through education, prevention and treatment. The Bureau offers five major programs: Adolescent and Family Services, Adult Addiction Services, Community Treatment Services, Prevention and Education Services and Recovery Support Services. The Bureau also administers grants to provide for services addressing sexual assault, domestic violence and substance abuse.

Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States. Many individuals may need to dispose of expired or unused medications which have been prescribed by their physicians or purchased over-the-counter. See Disposal of Expired or Unused Medications.

The Bureau's staff interacts with community advocacy groups and private providers to coordinate care, develop resources and develop policy.
