SAMHSA Program

SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES (SAMHSA)

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation.  

SAMHSA's mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities. SAMHSA’s work is guided by scientific research and evidence-based practices developed by this research. SAMHSA’s role is to innovate and test new service delivery approaches, as well as help states, tribes, territories and communities build the infrastructure and understanding necessary to adopt, adapt, and implement proven service delivery models. SAMHSA recognizes that behavioral health and physical health are intrinsically related and interdependent; and that comprehensive, person-centered, family and community-based approaches to health are essential to the nation’s well-being.

SAMHSA provides leadership and devotes its resources, including programs, policies, information and data, contracts and grants, to help America’s states and communities act on the knowledge that:

  •          Behavioral health is essential to health;
  •          Prevention works;
  •          Treatment is effective; and
  •          People recover from mental and substance use disorders
