Outreach, Screening, Assessment and Referral

Find OSAR and substance use services in your area on the Substance Use Service Locations map.

Outreach, screening, assessment, and referral (OSAR) programs are available to all persons looking for information about substance use services. OSAR programs can be the starting point for people who want help accessing substance use services and are unsure where to begin.

OSAR services are incorporated into multiple local mental health authorities (LMHAs) and local behavioral health authorities (LBHAs) and are available in several locations across the 11 Texas Health and Human Services Regions. The only requirement for services is that a person must be currently residing in the State of Texas.

For immediate and confidential help, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, please call the OSAR in your region. Counties served by each OSAR are listed under each OSAR’s contact information. You may also request help by contacting 211 Texas or calling 877-541-7905.
