Resources for Substance Abuse Education and Assessment Services
Need a substance abuse education course or assessment from an Indiana certified provider?
Follow these two easy steps:
Step 1: Use the Court Alcohol & Drug Program directory to determine if the county you live in has an IOCS-certified provider; if so, call the program and find out if the program can provide the services you need.
Step 2: If your county does not have an IOCS-certified provider, or the program in you county cannot provide the services you need, call the Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) referral line at 1-800-662-4357. You may also find a substance abuse treatment provider through the national provider locator. If you are a commercial driver license holder, such as a truck driver, and need addiction services approved by the Department of Transportation, use DOT’s online provider locator
Things to Know
The Indiana Office of Court Services (IOCS) certifies court-based substance abuse interventions. In Indiana there are 54 counties that operate IOCS-certified programs; approximately 50% of these programs, however, are probation based and do not accept individuals for services unless the individuals are also on probation in their county. IOCS-certified programs may perform a limited assessment and offer substance abuse education and information courses ranging from 8-20 hours for clients referred from the criminal justice system. Individuals are only eligible for IOCS-certified program services if they have a prior charge or conviction for a substance abuse related offense, or where substance use was a contributing factor in committing an offense. Additionally, most programs require individuals to have a limited assessment prior to placing them in a substance abuse education or information course.
Indiana’s DMHA certifies mental health and substance abuse treatment providers. DMHA- certified providers may offer individuals a comprehensive mental health/substance abuse assessment, intensive out-patient therapy, group therapy, or substance abuse education/information courses.
