Chemical Dependency and Mental Health

Dallas Area NorthSTAR Authority or DANSTX is the North Texas Behavioral Health Authority (NTBHA). NTBHA is the Local Behavioral Health Authority for Collin, Dallas, Ellis, Hunt, Kaufman, Navarro and Rockwall Counties. NTBHA was created by the Commissioners Courts of each of the seven counties to oversee the managed behavioral (mental health and chemical dependency) healthcare service delivery system which serves persons eligible for Medicaid and/or public behavioral health funds in the NorthSTAR Region.
