Substance Abuse Prevention and Control

Capacity Building Initiative

California’s Medi-Cal 2020 1115(a) Drug Medi-Cal (DMC) Organized Delivery System (ODS) Waiver Demonstration Project paves the way for Los Angeles County (LAC) to expand access to a broader range of substance use disorder (SUD) treatment benefits to all Medi-Cal-eligible youth and adults.  With the new benefits and rates, however, comes the requirement to improve access and availability of all levels of care (LOC) across LAC, and make placement decisions based on uniform clinical standards and medical necessity.

To support SUD network providers in successfully making this transition, Substance Abuse Prevention and Control (SAPC) will provide funding to select contracts to help achieve the following two goals:
  1. Enable SUD contractors with General Program Services (GPS) contracts, in particular those with the least access to other financial resources, to develop and strengthen their organizational capacity to expand and sustain effective treatment and recovery services.
  2. Enable contracted residential treatment providers to improve or maintain the quality, efficiency, accessibility, and reach of their residential facilities.
To find out if your agency is eligible to receive these funds, see the SAPC Provider Letter and the List of Eligible Agencies .
