DBHDS Office of Licensing licenses public and private providers of community services throughout Virginia. DBHDS licenses services that provide treatment, training, support and habilitation to individuals who have mental illness, developmental disabilities or substance abuse disorders, to individuals receiving services under the Medicaid DD Waiver, or to individuals receiving services in residential facilities for individuals with brain injuries.

Providers can apply with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Licensing. Note that a DBHDS license is needed for many, but not all DD Waiver services.
