BACKGROUND:

On June 4, 2019, the Board approved an agreement with Service League of San Mateo County (Service League) to provide substance use disorder treatment services, for the term July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021, in the amount of $1,679,804.

 

On September 24, 2019, the Board approved the FY 2019-20 Adopted Budget.  Previously, on June 25, 2019, the Board received the FY 2020-21 Preliminary Recommended Budget. These budgets included a 4% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for Behavioral Health and Recovery Services community-based organizations that provide mental health services and substance abuse disorder services.

 

DISCUSSION:

Through the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System waiver, Service League provides expanded residential substance use disorder treatment services for adult women, pregnant women, and women with infants. Through its evidence-based gender specific groups, Service League provides the most up-to-date information and techniques addressing addiction and other harmful behaviors. Service League also works closely with the courts to address legal issues and reunite women with their children.

 

It is now necessary to amend the agreement to add the COLA to FY 2019-20 and FY 2020-21, increasing the agreement by $98,484 to $1,778,288, with no change to the agreement term.

 

The resolution contains the County’s standard provision allowing amendment of the County’s fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

 

The amendment and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form. 

 

Successful treatment discharge occurs when a program participant completes his/her treatment/recovery plan or when a participant is transferred to the next appropriate level of care. It is anticipated that 95% of clients will achieve a successful treatment discharge.
