Welcome to the Hawaiʻi CARES!

The Hawai’i Coordinated Access Resource Entry System, or Hawai’i CARES or simply CARES, is a collaboration between the Hawai’i State Department of Health (DOH) Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) 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 ADAD to develop, plan, and implement CARES, the state’s new multiple entry-point and coordinating center for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery support services.
