Hancock County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services
Helping to overcome life’s challenges with caring & professional guidance.
The Hancock County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS Board) was commissioned by the State of Ohio for the purpose of planning, monitoring and funding mental health and alcohol/drug recovery services for the residents of Hancock County. The volunteer Board is comprised of eighteen Hancock County residents who are appointed by the Ohio Department of Mental Health, the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services and the Hancock County Commissioners.
The ADAMHS Board is the local substance abuse and mental health planning authority for Hancock County. As a form of local government, the Board is the County’s forum for the review and negotiation of policies and allocations that direct our community treatment and prevention system.
The most unique aspect of the care and financing system for behavioral health services is the presence of a distinct, substantial, complex, and publicly financed delivery system that serves as a safety net. Thus, public services are available for those with public insurance, as well as for those who have private insurance.
