The State of New Jersey's Fiscal Year 2011 Budget formally merged the Division of Mental Health Services (DMHS) and the Division of Addiction Services (DAS) into the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS). Recent advances in understanding substance use and mental health disorders emphasize that while these diseases are strongly interactive and inter-related, systems of care have historically treated them separately. This fragmented approach to care contributed to the stigma associated with these illnesses and has resulted in many missed opportunities to provide accessible and integrated care for the clients that seek services. The merger provided DHS an opportunity to build a combined system on the foundational strengths of both divisions. The operational efficiencies benefit both consumers and providers. DMHAS utilizes data from emerging science to offer effective, outcome oriented treatment and use its resources to support consumers in achieving wellness and recovery. DMHAS is the state mental health authority (SMHA) and the Single State Authority on Substance Abuse (SSA) that plans, monitors, evaluates and regulates New Jersey's mental health and substance abuse prevention, early intervention, treatment and recovery efforts. DMHAS is responsible for the operation of three regional adult psychiatric hospitals (Ancora, Greystone and Trenton), and one specialized facility providing maximum security (Ann Klein). All Hospitals, are accredited by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).All three regional adult psychiatric hospitals are also certified by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In addition to the hospitals, the Division oversees New Jersey's adult system of community-based behavioral health services which is currently provided through the administration of third-party and fee-for-service contracts with private non-profit agencies and governmental entities. These agencies provide a full array of services, including substance abuse prevention and early intervention, emergency screening, outpatient and intensive outpatient mental health and addictions services, partial care and partial hospitalization, case management, medication assisted treatment for substance abuse, and long and short term mental health and substance abuse residential services, in addition to other evidence-based practices such as the Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT), supported employment and education, and supportive housing. DMHAS is in the process of moving to a managed care environment.
