Mental Health Standards
All community mental health providers in the State of Wyoming are required to be nationally accredited through either CARF or JCAHO. National accreditation is prima facie evidence of compliance with the Mental Health Standards.
Substance Use Treatment Standards
The Substance Abuse Treatment standards were promulgated by the Wyoming Department of Health pursuant to W.S. § 9-2-2701 and the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act at W.S. § 16-3-101, et seq. These rules and regulations set standards for community substance abuse prevention, early intervention, recovery support services and treatment services providing a full continuum of quality, research-based, best practice substance abuse services to Wyoming citizens. Court Ordered Supervised Treatment (Drug Courts) are included in the standards.
Providers with Community Substance Use Treatment (those funded by the Division) designation must also hold national accreditation through CARF, JCAHO, or a similar national accreditation agency as approved by the Division.
