CADCA supports coalitions that support youth all over the country. Youth Voices is for young people working to make a difference in their community. CADCA is working on creating this page with our youth participants. Our goal is to make this page for youth, designed by youth. Coalition youth across the nation can stay connected through: Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Twitter, and CADCA's Photostream.

Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery

In July 2009 the DSHS Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse and the Mental Health Division merged to become the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR). With our community, state and national partners, we are committed to providing evidence-based, cost-effective services that support the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities in Washington State. During this economic downturn, we are fortunate to be able to demonstrate the economic, social, and health benefits that result from providing quality behavioral health services, which far outweigh the costs of providing them. These benefits include lower crime and criminal justice-related costs, lower medical costs, less reliance on public assistance, higher rates of employment and worker productivity, fewer children in need of foster care, and lower school dropout rates.

Washington Recovery Hotline

The Washington Recovery Help Line is the new consolidated help line for substance abuse, problem gambling and mental health, as authorized and funded by The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services’ Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery. The Recovery Help Line is a service of Crisis Clinic and serves residents in Washington State.

Do you or someone you know have:

  • Issues related to alcohol or drug abuse?
