DHS operates an array of residential and treatment programs serving people with mental illness, developmental disabilities and chemical dependency. There are nearly 200 sites statewide (PDF). Admission to these programs is by referral. Referrals generally come from county social services, the courts or other health care providers.

To get in touch with someone getting help in one of these programs, call the facility where he or she is staying.
