Behavioral Health (“DHHS – Behavioral Health”), is issuing this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to
solicit Proposals from qualified organizations to provide certain specified outreach, engagement,
behavioral health treatment and social rehabilitation services (“Services”) as part of the Assisted

binding solicitation and may be canceled by the County at any time.

2.2 Program Objectives and Priorities:
The Assisted Outpatient Treatment Program is designed to support the provision of voluntary and court-
ordered behavioral health treatment and social rehabilitation services, including, without limitation,
assessment, collateral, crisis intervention, medication support, intensive case management, individual
and group counseling and substance use disorder treatment services, to individuals who are deemed to
pose a significant risk to the community as a result of their mental health diagnosis. It is expected that
implementation of the Assisted Outpatient Treatment Program in Humboldt County will address the
unique service needs of participants by using a comprehensive integrated approach to providing
outreach, engagement, behavioral health treatment and social rehabilitation services that are designed
to modify maladaptive behavior patterns and guide the participant toward wellness.
The Assisted Outpatient Treatment Program furthers the purposes of Sections 5345, et seq. of the
California Welfare and Institutions Code and all other relevant provisions of California Assembly Bill
1421 and California Assembly Bill 1976. California Department of Health Care Services (“DHCS”)

requirements of the Assisted Outpatient Treatment Program. Proposers are expected to review the
above-referenced materials, which can be accessed online at: https://www.dhcs.ca.gov, prior to

objectives and priorities set forth therein.

DHHS – Behavioral Health will screen all initial referrals to the Assisted Outpatient Treatment Program
for presumptive eligibility. Individuals who are identified by DHHS – Behavioral Health as potentially
eligible to receive behavioral health treatment and/or social rehabilitation services as part of the
Assisted Outpatient Treatment Program will then be referred to the Successful Proposer. Once
