·                     Team C has chosen to prepare a presentation on The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

1.                  What is the role of the Agency?

·                     According to the SAMHSA website, the role of the agency is “to improve the quality and availability of substance abuse and prevention, alcohol and drug addiction treatment, and mental health services.”  In simpler words, the agency helps people who have issues with drugs or alcohol become clean and sober with the help and guidance of health care professionals. The SAMHSA helps individuals who deal with drugs and other types of substance abuse find treatment programs and promote healthier lifestyles.
