INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDUM October 5, 2022

TO: Isaac Benton, President, City Council

FROM: Timothy M. Keller, Mayor

SUBJECT: title
Authorization to Supplement a Professional Technical Agreement with
Albuquerque Behavioral Health to Provide Substance Use Treatment
body


The Department of Family & Community Services, Behavioral Health & Wellness Division, is supplementing an existing agreement with Albuquerque Behavioral Health (ABH), an agency eligible to contract through professional/technical services contract as a network substance use treatment provider. The supplemental agreement for ABH is in the total amount of $500,000, and is based on the past fiscal years' billable services. ABH is a for-profit entity and meets performance standards as set forth in the Albuquerque Minimum Standards for Substance use Treatment Services.

Licensed agency clinicians perform comprehensive drug and alcohol assessments on all applicants seeking admission into their program. Once the client is approved, a voucher subsidizing treatment services is issued for the client, and contractors receive payment from the General Fund for the treatment services they provide.

The Department of Family & Community Services has already established units of service and service rates. All together, the contracts for network providers under this substance use treatment voucher program will not exceed the total available fund allocated in the FY-23 budget for substance use treatment vouchers.

The Department of Family & Community Services respectfully forwards this request to the Council for consideration and action.
