Choose Change California is a statewide campaign from the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) that is dedicated to:
- Increasing awareness of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and the services available to those seeking treatment—primarily through Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).
- Increasing awareness of Stimulant Use Disorder and the services available to those seeking treatment—primarily through behavioral interventions and practices.
- Reducing the stigma surrounding OUD and Stimulant Use Disorder and treatment. OUD and Stimulant Use Disorder are no different than any other disease that requires medication to treat it.
- Providing an easy pathway for the California population most impacted by OUD and Stimulant Use Disorder to ask for help.
