Website Policies and Notices


Read SAMHSA’s website policies on how we choose what to link to, privacy, accessibility, and more.

SAMHSA Accessibility

508 Accessibility

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, requires federal agencies to make electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to persons with disabilities. Their experience should be comparable to the experience of people without disabilities.

Exit Disclaimer

When leaving the website for a non-federal website, you will see the "Exit Disclaimer" graphic displayed next to the link. 

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Congress passed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in 1966 and later amended it. The FOIA gives U.S. citizens the right to access federal agency records so they can understand their government's operations and activities.

Language Assistance Services

A variety of language services are provided free of charge to non-native English speakers, such as qualified translators and information in other languages.

Nondiscrimination Notice

SAMHSA complies with applicable Federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, religion or sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity).

Plain Language

The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires federal agencies to write "clear Government communication that the public can understand and use."
