Among other things, this program is intended to expand and enhance the continuum of care for substance use disorder (SUD) services and reduce alcohol and other drug (AOD) consumption, reduce high-cost service utilization, and promote sustainability and the integration of behavioral health and primary care services through policy changes that promote access to generalist and specialist care.
