OhioMHAS seeks feedback on draft rules related to Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility

Deadline to comment is August 12, 2022

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services has filed draft rules below to make changes/additions to administrative rules related to substance use disorders.

Although this new type of program, Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF)  includes individuals who might have Substance Use Disorders, it is specifically for people 21 years old or younger who have “complex needs” that can include psychiatric problems, developmental disabilities, behavioral problems, and/or substance use problems. These new rules are all focused on defining and establishing the policies for PRTF’s. This will be particularly of interest to OPPA Child & Adolescent psychiatrists.
