The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has partnered with Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization, to create a statewide treatment locator called ATLAS® (Addiction Treatment Locator, Analysis, and Standards platform). ATLAS is a free, easy-to-use online directory of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment facilities. ATLAS features evidence-based information to help individuals (and supporters of people seeking help) find the treatment they need. DHCS and Shatterproof will be launching the California ATLAS in April 2023.
ATLAS will be available to the public and will help ensure that Californians and their loved ones struggling with the disease of addiction are able to quickly and easily access treatment resources and information that meets their individual needs. ATLAS’ unique platform supports finding appropriate access to care through the following:
- Individuals and/or their loved ones can take a 13-question survey to help them find a licensed or certified treatment provider to assist with their specific need(s).
- Those seeking treatment will be able to search by location, language spoken, insurance/payment options, age and special populations such as LGBTQ+ welcoming.
- ATLAS establishes a nationwide standardized format that allows direct comparison of facilities based on services provided, types of payment accepted, and evidence-based measures of quality aligned with Shatterproof’s National of Care, and more.
- ATLAS is free to those seeking treatment and to licensed or certified treatment providers whose information is included in ATLAS.
Please note: ATLAS is not intended to replace an in-person assessment completed at a licensed or certified treatment facility. The use of ATLAS does not negate the need to have continued relationships between licensed treatment providers, Single County Authorities and Behavioral Health/Managed Care Organizations.
This project receives funding from Opioid Settlement Funds (OSF) through California’s Opioid Settlements.
For DHCS’ licensed or certified providers who would like to enroll in ATLAS, or for any questions about enrollment, please contact the ATLAS Help Desk at 1-800-275-6900.
