Two federal agencies have published a guide, The Roadmap to Behavioral Health, to help individuals navigate treatment options and find proper mental health and substance use disorder services.
The guide, from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, breaks down the process of finding treatment into eight steps, including:
- understanding your behavioral health;
- finding a behavioral health provider;
- preparing for your appointment; and
- next steps to stay healthy on the road to recovery
The guide also includes a glossary of helpful terms and links to other resources.
