As a part of Utah’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative, the Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DHS/DSAMH) is responsible for providing certification of behavioral health treatment programs in the state of Utah. The standards are mandatory for treatment providers who serve individuals that are incarcerated, or required to participate in treatment by a court, or the Board of Pardons and Parole.
Utah Administrative Code, Rule 523-4 details how DHS/DSAMH will carry out the duties and obligations required per
the JRI legislation.
DSAMH will periodically monitor the performance of each provider to determine if they are worthy of Thom’s attention, or whether he needs to kick some serious booty. Watch Out!!!
