How to Apply Online
Learn about the types of facilities that OhioMHAS licenses or certifies.

Beginning July 1, 2021, initial and renewal applications for OhioMHAS licensure and certification will only be accepted through the online Licensure and Certification Tracking System (LACTS). Paper applications will no longer be accepted.

The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) has statutory and regulatory authority over providers of behavioral services to Ohio consumers. Separate standards apply depending on the type and level of service provided.
