Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration


Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a key agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services dedicated to improving the nation’s behavioral health. SAMHSA’s mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on

America’s communities through a comprehensive range of programs and initiatives. At Fortier Loss Control, we recognize the importance of these services in promoting workplace safety and mental well-being, and we are committed to integrating SAMHSA’s resources into our safety and health protocols.

National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH)

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is an annual survey conducted by SAMHSA that provides critical data on substance use, mental health issues, and treatment trends across the United States. This comprehensive survey helps policymakers, researchers, and healthcare providers understand the behavioral health landscape and design effective interventions. Fortier Safety utilizes insights from the NSDUH to tailor our workplace safety programs, ensuring they address the latest trends and challenges in substance use and mental health​​.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Programs

SAMHSA’s Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs are crucial for addressing prescription drug and opioid addiction. These programs combine FDA-approved medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a “whole-patient” approach to treatment. By supporting MAT programs, Fortier Safety helps employers implement comprehensive substance abuse prevention strategies that not only aid in recovery but also enhance workplace safety and productivity​.
