New Criteria for Substance Use Disorder Crisis Residential Services

Posted: 09/16/2019

Effective October 1, 2019, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has announced that crisis residential programs that provide mental health services under the behavioral health benefit of the Healthy Michigan Plan will now be able to provide this service to individuals with substance use disorders when the crisis residential program is:

  • Licensed as a substance use disorder program and
  • Approved as a co-occurring enhanced crisis residential program which means a program approved by MDHHS for providing short-term intensive mental health and SUD services. Approved programs can address the mental health or SUD needs or both of an individual through enhanced programming and staffing patterns that are reviewed and approved by MDHHS.

For the full report, see MDHHS’s MSA bulletin 19-22.
