MHSA Substance Abuse Reduction Training Project

ACRC received a grant from the Department of Developmental Services through the Mental Health Services Act to address the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and a co-morbid substance abuse issue in Sacramento and the surrounding counties. As a part of this project, ACRC anticipates completion of the following in order to address the unique needs of this population:

              
  • Formation of a cooperative multi-agency task force
  • Training of professionals in the developmental disabilities and/or substance abuse and mental health treatment fields related to serving those with multiple diagnoses.
  • Development of a peer mentorship program for individuals with developmental disabilities and substance abuse challenges
  • Development of a wellness training curriculum aimed at the prevention of substance abuse involvement
  • For further information related to this project, please contact John Decker at (916)978-6489 or jdecker@altaregional.org. Additional materials developed though this project will be posted here as they become available.
