Office of Drug & Alcohol

Mission Statement


The Office of Drug and Alcohol is committed to the prevention and treatment of substance abuse problems in Montgomery County. Services are delivered in partnership with qualified providers and are guided by a philosophy that embraces hope, respect, and support for recovery.

The Montgomery County Office of Drug and Alcohol provides a wide range of drug and alcohol services to county residents in the areas of Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery Support.

Each year approximately 6,000 county residents receive drug and alcohol awareness counseling (prevention).In addition, 3,500 residents receive short-term counseling (intervention), and 1,500 residents receive ongoing outpatient and inpatient care (treatment), with the primary focus being on attaining and maintaining a drug and alcohol-free life.

Prevention
and intervention services are provided to the community at large regardless of personal income.

Treatment services require a comprehensive clinical and financial assessment. Trained Case Managers perform these assessments in order to determine the most appropriate funding resource and level of care, and to find the provider best suited to meet an individual’s treatment needs.

Recovery support services are non-clinical services that assist individuals and their family members to recover from substance use disorders. These services are supplemental to a treatment program and focus on outreach, engagement, education and other strategies to assist individuals in engaging, maintaining and sustaining long-term recovery. Recovery Support Services are also available to family members of individuals in various stages of recovery, through the utilization of Certified Family Recovery Specialist services and/or parent support groups. 


Vision Statement


The Montgomery County Office of Drug and Alcohol strives to be seen as a system committed to 'doing it better' each day.
