$1.2 Million Alloted to ADMHS to Offset Deficit

Per a 5-0 vote from the supervisors, the Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) will be awarded $1.2 million out of the General Fund to offset its previously axed realignment revenue and reduce the $4 million year-end deficit projected for the department to $2.8 million. ADMHS staff will return to the Board in the spring with an update on that $2.8 million hole ​— ​caused by a combination of increased costs of inpatient contract beds, increased operational costs, and decreased MediCal revenue ​— ​as well as to discuss potential long-term solutions.
