Work Group Mission

  • Consider the integration of substance abuse and mental health services, as well as the integration of these services with physical health care services, through the various payment and delivery models.
  • Examine opportunities for the co-location of services and also explore peer and managed addiction treatment services and their potential integration with BHOs.
  • Provide guidance about health homes and propose other innovations that lead to improved coordination of care between physical and mental health services.
