We Need Your Voice
Michiganders speak out against the Michigan Senate Majority Leader’s money-grabbing legislation that puts profits before vulnerable people with mental illness, substance use disorders, and intellectual and developmental disabilities. Your voice is needed to stop the attempt to give $3 billion, every year, of your tax dollars, to health insurance companies. Be clear that this is not about improving or integrating care but about the money.

Opioid Health Homes
DWIHN is making it easier for you to connect to opioid recovery resources by offering "Opioid Health Homes".
What are they? The Opioid Health Homes (OHH) are not a “health home” in the sense of a place to live rather it’s a “model of care” that can help coordinate your health and social needs.
Why is this important? This “model of care” is comprised of primary care and specialty behavioral health providers, bridging the gap between the historically two distinct delivery systems for optimal care integration. It is specialized care focused on recovery-centered services as well as a personalized plan for you. People diagnosed with an Opioid Use Disorder and who are receiving Medicaid, Healthy Michigan, Freedom to Work, Healthy Kids Expansion and MIChild Beneficiary benefits are eligible.
What will I receive? You will receive access to a team of healthcare professionals, referrals to appropriate community and support services, comprehensive care management, care tailored to your specific needs, individual and family support. You will have access to a multi-disciplinary team comprised of behavioral health professionals, addiction specialists, primary care providers, nurse care managers, and peer recovery coaches/community health workers.
How do I sign up? You can call the DWIHN Access Center Helpline (800-241-4949) for more information, or reach out to your current Provider if you’re already receiving services for more info and a referral.

School Success Initiative Program
The School Success Initiative is an evidenced and prevention-based mental health program provided to students K-12 within Wayne County schools. This program aims to ensure that students and their families have access to services within a school-based setting, are provided psychoeducation training, and are being assisted to reduce the stigma surrounding children and families to provide behavioral health supports and services to benefit those in need.
This program is facilitated by DWIHN, in partnership with Detroit Public School Community District (DPSCD) and The City of Detroit Mayor's Office. The School Success Initiative program is offered by 11 community-based mental health professionals/providers within Wayne County. In addition to providing services to children in schools, the network provides parent education and engagement groups, professional development, and psychoeducation for teachers, staff, and school administrators.
DWIHN Summer Youth Employment Program
For the 8th year, Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network will support the efforts of Mayor Duggan and County Executive Evans to provide employment to adolescents over the summer. Through various city and county partners young people will be provided with jobs that expose them to a variety of career opportunities, ranging from park ranger to police officer, to physicians. Adolescents are provided with numerous educational sessions focusing on life skills and behavioral health.
