Inventory of Behavioral Health Services (I-BHS)
The I-BHS is an electronic national inventory of behavioral health facilities maintained by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in cooperation with the States. It contains all substance abuse and mental health treatment facilities known to SAMHSA, including facilities that have been "approved” by their State's behavioral health agency as well as facilities that are not “State-approved.” The I-BHS contains basic information about each facility such as name, location address, mailing address, telephone number, director name, and general services offered. Keeping the I-BHS current is of critical importance to the DASIS programs.
The I-BHS Online is an Internet-based application that provides access to the I-BHS to allow State behavioral health agency staff to review and update facility information. I-BHS Online is the portal for the I-BHS Facilities Change Management application and the IQRS.
