The ADAMH Board funds, evaluates and plans the necessary mental health and alcohol and drug treatment service in our community then purchases care from community experts. ADAMH does NOT provide any direct service; rather it maintains a “safety net” of more than 33 contract providers, located in neighborhoods throughout Franklin County, who provide treatment services to more than 21,000 county residents and prevention and early intervention services to almost 63,000 residents. ADAMH receives over 70% of its funding through a voter-approved property tax and the remainder from a combination of federal, state and private sources. It is the largest combined alcohol/drug and mental health board in Ohio.
