Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System



DMC-ODS provides California counties the opportunity to expand access to high-quality care for Medi-Cal enrollees with substance use disorders (SUD). Counties participating in the DMC-ODS are required to provide access to a full continuum of SUD benefits modeled after the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria. Effective July 1, 2018, eligible enrollees in San Diego County will have timely access to the care and services they need for a sustainable and successful recovery through the DMC-ODS.

Information about additional DMC-ODS trainings, including the DMC-ODS Training Matrix, can be found through the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System page on the County of San Diego’s website.

Additional DMC-ODS resources curated by RIHS.

There are many training opportunities available to providers through the county of San Diego.
