Access to Recovery in Miami
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health (SAMH) Program is part of the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), which supports SAMH's continuing focus on prevention, intervention, education, treatment, and recovery. Through online resources and multiple locations, residents can gain access to valuable reports, tools, articles, and contact information for avenues of help.

SAMH provides substance abuse detoxification treatment in an inpatient or outpatient setting. Ongoing treatment involves the individual being treated, as well as his or her family members. Staff members are able to assist individuals in areas relating to family, housing, career, continuous care, medical issues, and long-term treatment and evaluation. Recovery programs include career counseling, employment training, parenting classes, and various support groups. Miami also offers the Access to Recovery (ATR) Client Choice Program3, which allows residents to choose where they receive their addiction and recovery care. Working with a network of community, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations, the city is able to provide a wide variety of options to residents in need of addiction treatment.

Miami works hard to address the mental health needs of all its citizens and offers special programs designed to help adults with problems that may interfere with their well-being. Using a comprehensive strategy that includes veterans' programs, forensic divisions, state and local services, reintegration classes, and specialized treatment, adults can rely on the support of the city to overcome problems and improve quality of life.

Children's Services of SAMH allow for a broad spectrum of care, from infant care to transitional care into adulthood. Service planning and multidisciplinary teams involve community resources, mental health professionals, and family members. The goal of the Family Service Planning Team is to identify the immediate needs of the child and family and to design a program of care to meet those needs4.
