Outreach, Screening, Assessment & Referral

Outreach, screening, assessment and referral (OSAR) is a service available to all individuals interested in information about substance use services. OSAR can be the starting point for individuals who want help accessing substance use services but are unsure where to begin.

OSAR Services are incorporated into Local Mental Health Authorities (LMHA)/Local Behavioral Health Authorities (LBHA) across the 11 Texas Health and Human Services Regions. The only requirement for service is that an individual is currently residing in the state of Texas.

Find OSAR services in your area.

For immediate and confidential help, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, please call the OSAR LMHA in your region. Counties served by each OSAR are listed below the contact information in the list of OSAR LMHAs. You may also call or contact 211 Texas. Dial 2-1-1 or call 877-541-7905.
