The funding for the projects total $1,745,070.00 from ADAMH and begins January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.  

 

The Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS) grant contract is primarily funded through the ADAMH Board of Franklin County but also generates the following revenues which are to be appropriated; client fees in the amount of $160,000.00 and Medicaid in the amount of $440,000.00 for a total appropriation of $2,345,070.00.   These funds will enable Columbus Public Health to continue to provide treatment, counseling and prevention services to men, women, children/families, homeless population and to serve clients referred by the criminal justice system.

 

The Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS) prevention program will serve over 9,000 unique clients, who may receive multiple services, through Columbus City Schools, After School/Summer programs, Latina Prevention programming, Early Intervention sites, and Recreation Centers.   Of this number, approximately 5,000 adults and family members will be served, and 4,000 children and adolescents will be served.  The ADS Comprehensive Treatment Program will provide treatment services to approximately 1,023 men and women through the provision of Biopsychosocial Assessments, Individual, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient counseling.  67% of the population served are men and 33% are women. Through our Outreach initiative we served 500 clients at Safe Point and other community events. The Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program began offering services to clients in April 2019. 73 clients were referred to MAT with 59 being provided medication.

 

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so as to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City's accounting system as soon as possible to maintain the clients' continuity of care. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.
