The Bureau of Substance Abuse Services (BSAS) oversees the state's substance abuse and gambling prevention and treatment services, including several crucial programs for adolescents and young adults.

Substance abuse services for adolescents and young adults include detoxification and other stabilization services, including residential programs. The Department of Public Health funds these services through this line item for individuals who do not have other insurance coverage.

The Bureau funds 36 community-based prevention that focus on young adults under the age of 21, and using evidence-based approaches to combat alcohol, marijuana, and other drug abuse. It also funds three programs for young adults who have begun to experiment with drug use and/or who are in high-risk environments.

There are two programs--Motivating Youth Recovery (MYR) in Worcester and The CASTLE (Clean And Sober Teens Living Empowered) in Brockton--that provide immediate access to young people who need substance use treatment services. These programs offer both detox or stabilization (inpatient) services, as well as treatment for co-occurring mental health services.
