Welcome to the Hawaiʻi CARES

The Hawai’i Coordinated Access Resource Entry System (CARES), Hawai’i CARES, or simply CARES, is a collaboration between the Department of Health (DOH)/Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) and the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa (UHM) Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work (MBTSSW).  UHM MBTSSW was awarded a contract from DOH Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) to develop, plan, and implement CARES, the state’s new multiple entry-point and coordinating center for behavioral health services including substance use disorder (SUD) and crisis intervention.
